Sunday shows preview: What’s next for gay marriage
News networks will focus Sunday on the Supreme Court’s historic legalization of same-sex marriages nationwide just two days earlier.
The landmark 5-4 ruling Friday ensures that states must recognize the practice under the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause.
Sunday’s talk shows will examine what this means for the nation and its social makeup going forward.
Here is a list of Sunday morning’s expected guests, all curious about what comes next after the conclusion of Obergefell v. Hodges:
ABC’s “This Week”: Host George Stephanopoulos first greets the namesake of Friday’s groundbreaking suit.
Plaintiff Jim Obergefell will detail his role in the Supreme Court’s move and what it was like taking part in American history.
ABC next welcomes two 2016 presidential candidates, one from each political party.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), a former Baptist minister, gives his faith-based perspective on the same-sex marriage debate.
