Puerto Rico Stands with Louisiana on Marriage

U. S. District Court Judge Juan M. Pérez-Giménez upheld the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico’s definition of marriage as a union of “a man and a woman” and “husband and wife.” Judge Pérez-Giménez, who was appointed by President Jimmy Carter, ruled that the Supreme Court’s own 1972 dismissal of a Minnesota case claiming a constitutional “right” of same-sex couples to “marry,” Baker v. Nelson, constitutes a binding precedent that can only be overridden by the Supreme Court itself, not by the district or circuit courts.

We praise judges like him and the judge in Louisiana who stand firm to keep traditional  principles for marriage.
