USA, Washington: Correction Re: Judge Who Won’t Marry Same Sex Couples Admonished By the State

Written by scott on October 10th, 2013

Washington Judge Gary TaborJust wanted to run a correction to our story yesterday about the WA state judge who refused to marry same sex couples. From MEUSA’s Ned Flaherty:

In “Judge Who Won’t Marry Same Sex Couples Admonished By the State” (9 October), the article concludes with your remark, “he can continue to discriminate.” That’s incorrect. As a result of the Commission’s reprimand, and the fact that discrimination in performing civil wedding ceremonies is outlawed, this judge no longer performs any weddings for anybody. I hope you’ll correct the article tomorrow, because, in fact, both statutes (the marriage law and the anti-discrimination law) are working just fine, and are now being adhered to.

Thanks, Ned!!!
