WASHINGTON (Christian Examiner) – Supporters of same-sex marriage are warning about a backlash against this summer’s landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision, and a prominent Christian sociologist says they have reason to be concerned.
The anxiousness on the part of LGBT leaders follows the defeat of a transgender equal rights ordinance in Houston as well as the widespread support among Christian conservatives for Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who refused to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples if her name was on them.
Additionally, the Alabama Supreme Court in September ruled that the state doesn’t have to recognize the adoption of children by a lesbian woman in a custody dispute across state lines. She lives in Georgia, while the biological mom and the children live in Alabama. The controversy began when the two women ended their relationship.
“We are in the middle of a full-throated backlash. … We are just seeing the beginning on the backlash. It will get worse before it gets better,” Kate Kendell, the executive director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, was quoted as saying in Time magazine.
