Wacko DC Court Rejects Referendum on Marriage

Opponents of the Washington, D.C., same-sex marriage law say they will now take their effort to challenge the law to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"We look forward to bringing our fight for the right to vote on marriage to the nation's highest court," said Brian Brown, president of National Organization for Marriage.

On Thursday, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals sided with the D.C.

In a narrow 5-4 split, the city's justices said city officials had the authority to keep the measure off the ballot.
