Thai court’s marriage ruling riles LGBTQ activists

A statement in which Thailand’s Constitutional Court has argued that permitting same-sex marriage in the country would violate the “natural order” has angered LGBTQ activists and rights advocates. Last month the country’s highest court ruled that a clause in Thailand’s latest military-drafted constitution that states that marriage can only be contracted between a man and a woman does not violate another clause that states that all citizens are equal under the law regardless of their sexual orientation. In a newly issued 12-page statement explaining the grounds for its ruling, the court says that marriage equality for same-sex couples “would not only overturn the natural order but it would also shake the very foundation of society and humanity.”
