More than a dozen people dressed in red showed up in support of same-sex marriage during the Knox County Commission meeting.

Because - oh, I don't know - maybe because the commission's opinion has no bearing on the United State Supreme Court's ruling in June that says same-sex spouses have a constitutional right to wed.
But, hey, if you got nothing to do . . .
