Wisconsin Supreme Court Stands Behind Voters; Upholds State's Ban on Same-Sex Marriage

In a unanimous decision today (June 30, 2010), the Wisconsin Supreme Court stood behind voters and upheld the state's ban on same-sex marriage, the Christian Broadcast Network website reports.

In a 7-0 ruling, the court upheld a 2006 voter referendum preventing gay marriage and civil unions.

The court said the ban on gay marriage was properly put to a vote.

Fifty-nine percent of voters in Wisconsin said marriage should only be between one man and one woman.
