Before the holidays, a U.S. district judge in Salt Lake City surprised almost everyone by ruling that Utah’s ban on same-gender marriage is unconstitutional; then in the past week the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled that no further weddings are allowed to take place, pending an appeal by the state at the circuit court level. Utah’s governor responded by saying he won’t recognize the same-gender marriages that have already been performed. Dr. Joanna Brooks, a national voice on Mormon life and politics, joins Welton on State of Belief this week to provide a realistic appraisal of what might be next for this important issue in Utah.
