From the news article:
.
++++++++++
Cincinnati lawyer David Langdon, representing the Campaign to Protect Marriage, argued that the court couldn’t grant a divorce for a same-sex couple because doing so, by default, would acknowledge that they were married.

LOL *what* a soaring moron. Here what they do to morons:

Langdon was not present at the hearing, which was held in a meeting room outside the courthouse.

Didn't he know he was going to have to push his stool before they got married? Or did he assume he was going to be the catcher?

Gays wanting to get a marriage license is pretty stupid, but conservatards advancing constitutional arguments against it is just as stupid.

If it is legal in New York, it has to be recognized here. It's called Full Faith and Credit.

But remember, that when you encourage people to live in the same household, it costs the government less for everything from water lines run to four separate houses, to water meters, to pavement for roads.

I don't really care about this issue that much. It's a government license, and the government can decide whatever criteria it wants to use for issuing the license.

The fact that they receive the government's blessing means nothing to me. In fact, if the government blesses something that automatically makes it suspect. They're still going to be freaks, no matter what.

This will have to go to the SCOTUS. Here's why:

Until the Supreme Court struck down all laws banning interracial marriage in 1967, a number of states banned interracial marriage and did not accept interracial marriage licenses issued in other states. The full faith and credit clause was never used to force a state to recognize a marriage it did not wish to recognize.[17]

I'll never recognize these sham unions. Ever.
And that applies to female "clergy" as well.
Several years ago I was visiting a coworker at Doctor's West when a woman entered the room and said, "Hello, I'm Rev. Smith, the chaplain."
I smiled and said, "Sure you are."

Say 'hi' to your horse for me please ;o)) and don't forget to grease the wheels on her buggy; po'thang

To put your mind at ease; Churches don't sell marriage licenses anymore. Keeping track of all the family histories got to be too much for them over the years; so the government built a county courthouse within one day's horse-and-buggy ride from every house in America
.
So nowadays $35 marriage licenses are sold only by clerks at the county courthouse; and they keep the family records. No religion required
.
Judges and Justices of the Peace perform marriages; sometimes for free. No preacher required
.
Why?
.
So people with no religion; and people like muslims; jews; hindus; buddhists; voodoos; catholics; mormons; and fundies can all get married without having to join a christian church
.
*what* will they think of next!

Sorry Bruce, we have a constitutional amendment in Ohio that says you ass bandits aren't married here. Period.

And you're so spectacularly stupid you say Catholics aren't Christians. What's your degree in? Queer Studies?

Tough issue, really because you have to have consistency in application of the law and the general rule is that we recognize acts that were legal in the jurisdiction where they occurred. For example, if a deed conveying property in Ohio was prepared in Florida, executed in Florida, using the technicalities specified under Florida law, then it's generally a good deed. Likewise if you have a Florida will, but move to Ohio and die there. It is a Florida will and it will have to be interpreted under Florida (not Ohio) law. Likewise when it comes to foreign marriages. If the service was legally performed in, say, Ukraine, we recognize it here.
So the consistent answer has to be, if it was a legal marriage in New York, it has to be legal here.
I think it's the right answer because it's a government license, not a religious sacrament. A government license is no different than any of the other acts listed above. If you recognize a New York driver's license, then a New York buggery license should also be recognized.
Like I said, I'm still going to think they're freaks no matter what the government decides it wants to do.
Full Faith and Credit sure doesn't seem to apply to CCW permits. Try taking your gun (even in a case in the trunk of your car) with a permit through Massachusetts. If it's discovered, you're going to state prison for a year. Mandatory sentence. New Hampshire is considering putting up warning signs on major roads that cross into Mass. They're tired of seeing their people go for a trip to the store and getting arrested by Mass. cops.

Agreed. Wouldn't you love to be the one to bring that before the Supreme Court? Don't know what the case law is on this point, but if a marriage license and a driver's license has to be recognized, then why not a gun license.
But now that I'm thinking about this more, occupational licenses (a law license and a medical license, real estate license, etc.) is not recognized. I'm wondering what the case law is and what's the distinction.
Well, for law and real estate licenses, that seems obvious...you have to show proficiency in the knowledge of each state's laws and regulations (the Mass. CCW law is a good example; so are state tax laws.)
I believe in medicine, the reason was a "Knowledge gap" that existed 100 or more years ago...if you were in Boston in 1890, you probably wouldn't trust an MD straight off the train from Omaha.

Rom.1:16-32 No matter what the glbtetc. community says, their view will never be legitimate. One day they will face YHWH, the creator. Repentance is the necessary element in this equation. Progress:To develop to a higher, better, or more advanced stage. The glbtetc community advocates the opposite of this.
The laws are not antiquated, but immoral behavior demands consequences.
