Do states have a right to ban gay marriage?

OHIO- A federal appeals court upheld on Thursday the right of four states to ban same-sex marriage, contradicting rulings by four similar courts and almost certainly sending the issue on a rapid trajectory to the Supreme Court.

The much-anticipated decision, written by Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton, an appointee of George W. Bush, overturned lower court rulings in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee that were in favor of same-sex marriage. The question is, is this bill a direct attack on the rights of homosexuals, or simply an attempt to reserve this decision to the states?
