Supreme Court Refuses to Stop Gay Marriages in Oregon


The high court rejected the appeal for a stay to stop the marriages.  

 

The justices declined to get involved in the Oregon case.

 

Gay rights advocate Ron Berry of Bend says views on gay marriage have changed dramatically in recent years.

 

"The other people who are with us.  A minority can't do it on thier own.  They have to have the help of the majority . It says a lot about our culture and how it's changed in the last ten years."

 

Berry says its his understanding , organizers have decided not to go forward with plans to put gay marriage on the November ballot.

 

"Oregon United for Marriage is kind of closing up shop.  I'ts a subgroup of Basic Rights Oregon - BRO.  Bro sounded like it was going back to other issues in the LGBT community like gender issues, what not."

 

The National Organization for Marriage plans to continue its effort to intervene in the state's gay rights case through the appeals courts.
