D.C. Voters Fight for Voice in Marriage Ruling

Ad Feedback

The Washington, D.C. Board of Elections now says voters cannot weigh in on whether to ban same-sex marriage.

The board issued an order, Tuesday, saying "because the initiative would authorize discrimination prohibited by the human rights act, it is not a proper subject for initiative."
       
However, a group called Stand for Marriage D.C. has promoted an initiative that would recognize marriage as only between a man and a woman.
    
The group plans to appeal the election board's ruling.

The head of Stand for Marriage D.C., Bishop Harry Jackson, joined CBN News with a reaction to the district's decision.
