Virginians are reacting to a Supreme Court ruling that struck down the controversial Defense of Marriage Act. A gay married couple can no longer be denied benefits. This ruling has overturned Virginia law, which did not recognize same-sex marriages, including those from out of state. Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli made clear his stance on gay marriage yesterday saying, “Once the natural limits that inhere in the relationship between a man and a woman can no longer sustain the definition of marriage, the conclusion that follows is that any grouping of adults would have an equal claim to marriage.” This statement suggests that gay marriage could soon lead to polygamy.
