    South Carolina Gay Marriage Ban Ruled Unconstitutional

    South Carolina's gay marriage ban was ruled unconstitutional on Wednesday.
    U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel issued the ruling Wednesday in favor of Colleen Condon and Ann Bleckley, a same-sex couple who filed a lawsuit against the state when they were denied a marriage license after applying for one and paying the filing fee in early October.

    Gergel granted the state's motion for a temporary stay on issuing gay marriage licenses until Nov. 20. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) and Attorney General Alan Wilson are expected to appeal the decision.

    Excellent news! Another loss for the hateful bigots and another win for tolerance, equal rights and progress.

    In 50 or so years this will all be a memory, something notated in history books comparing today's anti-gay marriage crowd with 1950's racism.

    It's time for SCOTUS to step up and end this once and for all. I'm glad for the people of SC but this constant ruling, appeal, stay, etc. is getting out of hand.

    SSM should be legal. The end.
