Here is every story the Salt Lake Tribune has ever done on the marriage ruling; updated 30 minutes ago; the newest stuff at the top

.
The biggest problem now is that some people just can't believe they don't have gays to kick around anymore
.
The National Guard will need to go to some of the balky marriage license bureaus and point a rifle at them to get their ballpoint pens moving again
.
Just like desegregation in the 1960s

GREAT link. Go watch the taped debate part. The countering law prof. shows the sheer desperation of the antis. His most major mistake was talking about judicial restraint and blaming Obama for the appointment of the judge WITHOUT acknowledging the judge was recommended by none other than the famous Senator Orin Hatch. <evil grin>

The Gov. wants Judge Shelby to ignore his own ruling while the Gov. shops for the right "activist judge". And if he wants to defend traditional marriage in his state he should be working on banning all divorces.

SSM is not an attack on traditional marriage. It's simply expanding traditional marriage to include adults who are attracted to the same sex.

FTA:
"Gov. Gary R. Herbert criticized the ruling last week, calling Shelby "an activist federal judge."

At the time, Herbert said he was working with his legal counsel and the acting attorney general "to determine the best course to defend traditional marriage within the borders of Utah."

I guess Gov Herbert has decided he isn't bound by the U.S. Constitution. Fortunately Judge Shelby understands the U.S. Constitution.

ARTICLE VI
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution;

Still NO word from the 10th Circuit about a Stay..........and without the State ACTUALLY stating what harm they may suffer, maybe just maybe the 10th will deny it because they have NOT met the burden they need for a Stay!!!
