On the wrong side of history again

Bowing to the inevitable, North Carolina has authorized same sex marriage, leaving South Carolina the last remaining state of the Fourth Circuit to bar such marriages. Today U.S. District Judge Max Cogburn of Asheville struck down the state’s laws restricting marriage to a man and a woman. North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory said the state would comply. “The administration is moving forward with the execution of the court’s ruling and will continue to do so unless otherwise notified by the courts,” he said. Same sex marriage licenses have already been issued in Raleigh, Asheville and Greensboro.

In the defining civil rights issue of my generation, South Carolina chooses to be on the wrong side of history yet again. As Governor Nikki Haley reminds us, “It’s a great day in South Carolina.”
