HAPPY LOVING DAY!!! [Jun. 12th, 2007|12:32 am]

Today June 12th is lovingday!. It's been 40 years since this...
U.S. Supreme Court
LOVING v. VIRGINIA, 388 U.S. 1 (1967)
388 U.S. 1
LOVING ET UX. v. VIRGINIA.
APPEAL FROM THE SUPREME COURT OF APPEALS OF VIRGINIA.
No. 395.
Argued April 10, 1967.
Decided June 12, 1967.

I hope that my friends in the GLBT community do not have to wait much longer to have their right to marry!

And to quote Chief Justice Warren in his opinion of the Court.
"The freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men."

I wonder which suit will eventually wend its way from Virginia this time to allow for the overturning of the anti-gay-marriage laws.

Fascinating decision, Loving, it is. A technicality overturned the nation's antimisceganation laws. For the better, despite it being a technicality.

Yes, it was a very fascinating decision. And yes, the couples names was Loving, Mildred (nee Jeter) and Richard Loving.

There is a link in my post to the lovingday.org web site and there they have the a legal page with a number of pro and con cases. This one cane be found at http://lovingday.org/cases/loving_v_virginia_1967.htm.

It look like that it going to take some legal technicalities to finally have same gender rights as well.
