Federal judge strikes down Oklahoma ban on same-sex marriage

OKLAHOMA CITY —A U.S. District judge has ruled that Oklahoma’s ban on marriage equality is unconstitutional.

Judge Terence Kern made the ruling on Tuesday. The ruling was immediately put on hold, pending appeals.

In the ruling, the judge remarked “…the majority view in Oklahoma must give way to individual constitutional rights.”

The judge also said equal protection is at the heart of our legal system.
