A federal judge has ruled that Kansas’  ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional. The ruling is stayed until November 11 pending appeal. In the ruling, the judge cited the 14th Amendment. “We hold that the Fourteenth Amendment [to the United States Constitution] protects the fundamental right to marry, establish a family, raise children, and enjoy the full protection of a state’s marital laws. A state may not deny the issuance of a marriage license to two persons, or refuse to recognize their marriage, based solely upon the sex of the persons in the marriage union.”
