Family Foundation Reacts to Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

Both sides in the gay marriage debate are reacting to Thursday’s developments regarding Kentucky’s same-sex marriage ban.  A federal judge in Louisville signed the final order, meaning his February 12th decision recognizing out-of-state same-sex marriages is now law. 

A number of Kentucky communities have enacted so-called "fairness ordinances," prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation or perceived gender identity, the most recent of which is Frankfort.   The capital city has become the fifth in the state to do so among Lexington, Louisville, Covington and the eastern Kentucky city of Vicco.

Instant Racing is another step closer to leaving the gate at Kentucky horse tracks. But opponents of the new form of gambling still hope to block it.  Instant Racing, which involves electronic gambling on previously-run horse races, has never won legislative approval in Kentucky. But last month, a legislative oversight panel refused to block regulations allowing it.
