Oklahoma Governor Blocks Military Same-Sex Benefits

Oklahoma governor blocks military same-sex benefits

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin’s office confirms that she has ordered the National Guard to stop processing requests for military benefits for same-sex couples. This is despite a Pentagon directive to do so.

A spokesman said the governor was following the wish of Oklahoma voters. In 2004, voters in the state approved a constitutional amendment that prohibits giving benefits of marriage to gay couples.
