The Gay vs. Normal marriage debate has once again been in the spot light since the federal appeals courts of Cincinnati has sustained the gay marriage ban in four states. The decision has been a bitter one for those who had been in support of same sex marriages.
After a long line of successive victories, this decision has set back the gay marriage movement considerably. The four states for which the gay marriage ban has been upheld are Tennessee, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky. Before this decision came, quite a few Circuits had declared such laws to be constitutionally incorrect.
The supporters of traditional or heterosexual marriages has grabbed upon the decision and hailed it declaring that the things might finally be taking a turn for the right. However the ruling is facing quite a backlash and the supporters of gay marriage have declared to appeal for the case.
Thus the recent developments are a strong indication of the fact that the case might as well end up in the Supreme Court. The gay marriage supporters are quite confident of their cause and have declared the recent decision as a disappointment. The gay marriage supporters have clearly voiced their intentions of asking the Supreme Court for an immediate review so as to legalize the gay or same sex marriages nationwide.
The issue of gay or lesbian marriages has been a source of some continuous debates and in a recent move it was requested by the 32 states that the Supreme Court must intervene and settle this argument once and for all.
However the way things may turn out to be, Supreme Court ruling will finally settle a long debate.
