shiat!  I had Oklahoma in my "Last State Arriving in the 21st Century" Office Pool.  I KNEW I should've take Mississippi.

Well, they WERE the last state to abolish slavery.

In 2013... o_o'

That's probably a safe bet.

Oklahoma and Texas finally give up on over a hundred years of pretext and start making out furiously.

You guys do realize that, while this does open the door to gay marriage, they are probably working furiously to close that particular gap?

Have you ever been to Wyoming?  Don't let the Matthew Shepard thing fool you, Wyoming is a pretty swell state when it comes to personal freedoms.  As I mentioned above, Kansas on the other hand...

Some sort of legalese/blood magic; I suspect. Ritual combat by lawyers is a possibility. Require all the gays that want to marry to register with the state 36 months in advance, on Tuesday the 5th of August, after a full moon.

if a federal judge issues a ruling that Kansas must allow gay marriage then they will declare themselves the Independent Christian Republic of Brownbackistan

The only logical response to this is for Oklahoma to try and secede.

Do it.

Do it.

Or, they could just ignore the Fed; like Colorado and Washington do on pot. That's, personally, what I would do. It's not like the Fed is going to invade Oklahoma so they perform gay marriages.

Yup.  I have Alabama for gay rights.  On most "last state to catch up" speculations, I alternate between Alabama and Mississippi.  If it weren't for Atlanta, Georgia would be right in there.

That's okay. I had Utah. And it looks like the Utah Derp will be the case that will kick the rest unconstitutional next June.

Too late, I'm on a roll! You could also make them attend a marriage class for 18 months and only grant them a license if they pass. Make sure that they get several sets of Thermodynamics questions.

/ Could also make them take 7 months of sex-ed; where they learn about condoms, STDs and what Jesus' opinion on premarital sex is.

You realize that that would necessarily have to apply to straight marriages too, yes? Otherwise it's the same problem they have now - an unequal application of the laws pertaining to marriage.

Religious folk generally don't like being told when and how to marry, and neither do STATES' RIGHTS types.
