Jim Obergefell Visits Tennessee

The man whose name will forever be associated with same-sex marriage, Jim Obergefell, the named plaintiff in the U.S. Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage decision in 2015, was in Nashville this week, calling on the governor to veto a bill that simply directs judges to give undefined words in the Tennessee Code their “natural and ordinary meaning.”

The bill was approved by two-thirds of Tennessee’s House and Senate, but LGBT activists have called it the “sneaky LGBT erasure law.” Today the governor signed the bill into law.
