AP LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS - A judge on Friday struck down Arkansas' ban on same- sex marriage, saying the state has "no rational reason" for preventing gay couples from marrying. Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza ruled that the 2004 voter- approved amendment to the state constitution violates the rights of same- sex couples. "This is an unconstitutional attempt to narrow the definition of equality,"
