Virginia Attorney General says anti-gay arguments against marriage equality were “wholly unpersuasive”

Attorney General Mark R. Herring attended oral arguments today before the 4th Circuit in the appeal of the recent ruling striking down Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage.

The Commonwealth argued in favor of upholding the ruling of the district judge who reached the same conclusion as Attorney General Herring regarding the constitutionality of the ban.

In a terrific speech, Herring said he found the anti-gay side to have “wholly unpersuasive” arguments.
