The last state to toss out their ban was just a couple weeks ago, in Pennsylvania. I asked what number that was now, was replied with 19.

This makes 20. Well done, and keep going, United States of America.

I was recently in Indy with my sister's family and we wen to this art thing.  It happened to be at the same time that there was a Pride event off of Meridian near downtown.  The cops turned traffic into a shiatshow by having roughly 30 cop cars blocking 2 of 4 lanes or traffic so 60 cops could stand around and watch less than 100 gay people try to have a party.  I couldn't tell if it was incompetence or malice.

Based on the quality of I-65, I'm going with incompetence.

Marion County Clerk Beth White said she is prepared to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in her office at the City-County Building in Downtown Indianapolis.
"The clerk's office will be open until at least 4:30p.m. this evening to issue licenses. I will also conduct short, civil ceremonies on a first-come, first-serve basis for a voluntary $50 contribution to the Indiana Youth Group," White said in a news release.


Nice. That'll freak out the anti marriage people.

We've got two counties refusing to issue licenses and they're both probably about to be flash mobbed.

Another federal judge rules that prohibiting gay marriage is unconstitutional.  Another state attorney general decides to waste taxpayer dollars fighting the ruling.  Another several hundred couples will get happily married then stuck in a legal quagmire in several days or weeks when a stay is issued and no one knows whether to recognize those marriages or not.

Can we just get the Supreme Court to rule on this already?  You'd think the state decisions/appeals would have reached critical mass by now.

You know considering same sex marriage wasn't a thing ANYWHERE 14 years ago, I'd say it's progressing a lot quicker than most would have expected.

We're now up to 45% of the population of the United States living in areas with equal marriage. If you include places where it's been struck down but the ruling stayed, it jumps to 65%.

And yet, amazingly, fire has not rained down from the heavens, no states have fallen into the ocean, and the frequency of natural disasters is roughly following the expected trendline in areas with equal marriage and areas without.

A lot of separate district judges have made rulings recently, but I don't think any have made it through the Court of Appeals yet.  I'm sure the Supremes will take the first one they can get.

I have a couple of friends who are against gay marriage because God. My response to them is marriage really isnt so much about God as it is about legality. The government issues the license even if the marriage is put on by a church. This about insurance, taxes, benefits, spousal priveleges, wills, etc. Why shouldnt two consenting adults be able to enjoy the priveleges and the downfalls of marriage regardless of their gender?

No doubt.  Nearly all of the court decisions on the issue have happened in the last year, following the Supreme Court's decision on DOMA.  It takes a lot of time to move a case from one level to the next.  I think the closest now is Utah, who today had their ban overturn upheld by a federal appeals court.  I think that's the one that can get to the Supreme Court soonest.

I believe the Supreme Court ruling hits a one-year anniversary in 2-3 days.

Are you kidding? The GOP can milk this for years. "We heard you, the People, speak out in defense of traditional marriage. It was on account of Obama and liberal elite activist judges that the sodomites are forcing their 'marriages' down our throats. Elect us and we'll appoint true patriot judges that will restore America to godliness!"

They've sung the same song about abortion for 40 years and most voters haven't caught on that nothing has really changed.

DoctorWhat: Another state attorney general decides to waste taxpayer dollars fighting the ruling.


Unless the point is to have standing before the Supreme Court. Perhaps the AG is actually pro gay marriage and plans to fight the ruling so the SC can't punt on the issue of standing.

It would be funny if we eventually learned that the losing attorney in the inevitable Supreme Court decision was actually in favor of gay marriage. That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you troll. (Doubly epic would be citing the Phelps case as a precedent for a person's rights not being dependent on popularity.)

What I bring up with those folks is why they want the government to ban marriage between people who have different religious beliefs. (Since at this point that's the only argument left.) What if they started passing laws that said only members of a certain religion could be married? And what if you weren't part of that religion? How would you feel then?
