great article thanks :)

“Conway plans to run for Governor in 2015 when Gov. Beshear maxes out his two terms. This move by Conway will give him an uphill battle with many Kentucky voters, but my belief is that Conway is on the right side of history and he has made the right decision no matter his own personal political future.”

not too steep a hill, lets hope

I’ve had this page percolating in my brain all day, just needed time to find the background/history to fill it out.
I supported and worked for and voted for Jack Conway when he ran against Rand Paul (and I’m a registered Republican in Kentucky!)
My greatest hope is that the governor’s race won’t come down to this one issue because so far all I see are far RW and TP candidates lining up on the R side, and THAT is very frightening.

I’m a registered Republican who voted for Conway as well. So that’s two votes. But hearing the commentary from other attorneys today I think that hill is going to be steep.

Excellent, thanks for the background info.

I really believe that the background/brief history info gives a lot more context to what here in Kentucky is an extremely complex issue.
What amazes me the most is the fact that there are LGBT folks everywhere here, and I mean EVERYWHERE (including upstanding respected members of the community), but no one wants to say it out loud.

The opinion by this judge was a good read, and he even included a lesson in civil-rights, which is commendable - it starts at page 18 until the end:

Many Kentuckians believe in “traditional marriage.” Many believe what their ministers and scriptures tell them: that a marriage is a sacrament instituted between God and a man and a woman for society’s benefit. They may be confused—even angry—when a decision such as this one seems to call into question that view. These concerns are understandable and deserve an answer.
Our religious beliefs and societal traditions are vital to the fabric of society. Though each faith, minister, and individual can define marriage for themselves, at issue here are laws that act outside that protected sphere. Once the government defines marriage and attaches benefits to that definition, it must do so constitutionally.
It cannot impose a traditional or faith-based limitation upon a public right without a sufficient justification for it. Assigning a religious or traditional rationale for a law, does not make it constitutional when that law discriminates against a class of people without other reasons.
The beauty of our Constitution is that it accommodates our individual faith’s definition of marriage while preventing the government from unlawfully treating us differently.
This is hardly surprising since it was written by people who came to America to find both freedom of religion and freedom from it.
