WASHINGTON, Jan 6 —"The decision by the US Supreme Court to put a hold on same-sex marriages in Utah is very disappointing. Same-sex married couples in the Beehive State are now stuck in legal limbo, waiting to see if the courts respect their rights. We urge the courts to extend marriage rights immediately. Every same-sex couple in Utah should have the same right and freedom to marry as their opposite-sex neighbors."
