Another ban bites the dust....

The stay is only in effect until 25 Aug to give the state the opportunity to ask the 10th circuit or the SCOTUS for a longer stay.

I've long ago lost track of how many consecutive victories that gives us.

I think the governor and AG of Colorado have earlier indicated that they will not appeal.

This bodes well for my theory that the Supreme Court will take this and other pending cases in October and rule in our favor next June.

Stinking ass Jew judges are forcing HOMO marriage on our society.

Don't know if this Judge was a Jew, but the attorney for the homosexuals is.

Damn, and these people wonder why normal people don't like them.

We tolerate the homo, and the lesbo, but we sure as hell don't have to like them, nor, play with them at recess.

Do you really need a law to keep yourself from marrying another man?

Actually until there is a split decision amongst the appeals courts, this makes it LESS likely the SCOTUS acts this coming session. They are in no rush to take another marriage case so soon after the DOMA & Prop 8 cases.

On the bright side, we're likely to lose before either the 5th or 6th or 7th or 8th circuits which are 2-1 conservative dominated courts. That WOULD create the split rulings which would push the SCOTUS to take a case and finally have to rule on the merits.

I understand what you're saying, Sheeple, but I don't totally agree. Conservative judges, who actually believe in the Constitution, should be Supporting marriage equality and ruling in our favor, not standing against us. That is one of their disconnects of this entire thing.

If the idiot christian rightists hadn't hijacked the GOP when Ralph Reed was trying to take control of the world, I think the GOP would actually have been on our side throughout this. I served on Senator Bob Dole's staff in the 80s as a Very Openly Gay Man and he had no problem at all with gay rights and equality. It wasn't until the foolishly named Moral Majority took charge that the tenor of the GOP changed. Even the Senator changed after that, seeing as he wanted to be president. George Bush the elder is another one whose publicly stated opinions changed on this subject at that point.

If the GOP had anybody in their membership with actual balls, as opposed to the imaginary balls of people like Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann and Ted Cruz, the party might return to its Lincolnesque roots.

Btw, do not worry about my republican past. I am now a firm Democrat. Yet strangely my ideas and opinions have not really changed. The Dems have just moved rightward (which we now think of as the center) until they inhabit the space I filled back in the 60s-80s. Meanwhile the elephants have moved so far to the right that they have no cohesive policies any longer.
