The supreme court has ruled that states across the U.S cannot ban gay marriage. This is the gay rights advocates biggest victory yet. The U.S. is now the 21st country in the World to legalize gay marriage nationwide. Shortly after the Supreme Court ruled gay marriage bans unconstitutional, Texas republicans have expressed their disappointment with the ruling. Ken Paxton, attorney general, has suggested that the state’s next battle will be to defend religious liberty. Governor Greg Abbott said, the supreme court has abandoned the role of impartial judicial arbiter, and that five of the justices are imposing their views on a matter that the constitution and previous courts have left to the people of the States. Before the ruling, gay marriage had been made legal in 37 states and the District of Columbia. As of now Hays County will not be issuing same sex marriage licenses, according to the Hays County Clerk’s office. Hays County is seeking direction from Ken Paxton.
