Indiana's gay marriage ban ruled unconstitutional

Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports:

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday issued a lightning-fast ruling finding Indiana's gay marriage ban unconstitutional.

It came just nine days after the Indiana and Wisconsin cases were argued before the three-judge panel.

"The challenged laws discriminate against a minority defined by an immutable characteristic, and the only rationale that the states put forth with any conviction - that same-sex couples and their children don't need marriage because same-sex couples can't produce children, intended or unintended - is so full of holes that it cannot be taken seriously," the ruling said.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller is expected to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court of the United States.
