The Supreme Court this morning denied audience to Bishop Harry Jackson’s lawsuit against the DC Board of Elecitons and Ethics, which sought a citywide referendum on the subject of gay marriage. The lawsuit was initially turned away by the DC Court of Appeals when the DCBOEE argued that to put gay marriage on the ballot would be to potentially authorize discrimination that was in violation of the Human Rights Act.
With the Supreme Court refusing to hear the case, the lower court’s ruling shall stand. Perhaps Bishop Jackson will once again “move” back to Maryland? We’ll see.
