By Gudrun Schultz   SEATTLE, Washington, July 26, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Supreme Court of Washington issued a long-awaited ruling today, upholding the state’s ban on homosexual “marriage,” Seattlepi.com reported this morning.   In a 5-4 decision, the Court upheld the state’s 1998 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defines marriage as solely the union between one man and one woman.   DOMA was instituted to “promote procreation and to encourage stable families,” Justice Barbara Madsen wrote in the decision. “The legislature was entitled to believe that limiting marriage to opposite-sex couples furthers the State’s legitimate interests in procreation and […]
