"Opponents of the freedom to marry in Washington are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to take their case.

"A group headed by Bishop Harry L. Jackson which had opposed marriage equality in the city says it filed a petition with the high court on Tuesday, asking the justices to take their case.

"Washington began honoring the marriages of same-sex couples in March. Jackson and opponents of equal marriage for gays and lesbians had previously argued in court that the issue should go before D.C. voters.

"D.C. courts ruled, however, that city officials could pass a law barring initiatives from the ballot if they conflict with a city human rights law."
