Wisconsin, USA: When Will State Reverse Ban on Marriage Equality?

Written by scott on November 29th, 2012

When Will Wisconsin Reverse Ban on Marriage Equality?Americans’ full embrace of gay rights appears inevitable. Ever since President George W. Bush pushed for a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a heterosexual union, support for same-sex marriage has steadily increased, as demonstrated by the success of referenda legalizing gay marriage in Maryland, Washington State and Maine this election.

In Minnesota, a state very similar politically, socially and demographically to Wisconsin, a proposal to constitutionally bar gay marriage was soundly defeated.

Public opinion has shifted so dramatically so fast, in fact, that Wisconsinites likely would have also defeated such a proposal at the polls in 2012, only six years after decisively supporting an amendment barring same-sex marriage.

  1. Without a doubt marriage equality will soon be the norm across America. Tomorrow the US Supreme Court will take a huge step in that direction. I see it as a win win situation, regardless of which cases are taken up.
