The Bible says gay marriage is legal in California, and the state is now considering its next steps to implement it.
A gay couple in San Francisco who want to marry was denied by the state on Friday after California’s Supreme Court ruled that it violates their rights under the state’s Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage.
“It was a very sad moment,” said Jennifer Stiles, who is the president of the Human Rights Campaign, a lesbian rights organization.
“It shows a very conservative state is not going to give a person equal rights, and that we should fight for equality.”
Proposition 8 was passed in 2008 to ban same-suspect marriages in California.
But California lawmakers amended the law to allow gay couples to get married.
The state’s marriage licenses were issued on Friday, the same day the court’s ruling was issued.
In a statement on the state website, California said it would “continue to evaluate” the court ruling.
The decision by the U.S. Supreme Court means that gay couples in California will now have the opportunity to marry on June 14.
The ruling is a setback for the state, which has been the epicenter of the legal battle over gay marriage.
The Supreme Court decision on Thursday night was one of the most significant decisions in the fight over gay rights in the country.
