The U.S. Constitution's "full faith and credit" clause REQUIRES ALL states to legally recognize the official acts of ALL other states. The U.S. Constitution contains NO exceptions, and NO delays.

I certainly hope the court turns down the Kentucky AG's request.

>says the delay is sought to give the attorney general time to decide whether to appeal the Feb. 12 ruling and would give the state an opportunity to prepare to implement the order

I assumed the delay was being sought because the AG expects the rapture in the next 90 days, thus rendering the entire issue pretty much moot [sic].

Perhaps that is correct, but they just didn't want to come right out and say that in their filing for a delay.

Using FFCC would mean that all states must honor those states who refuse to legally recognise SSM.

You're using a 2 edged sword and I don't think of you as a trained Moyl.

The judge's order has already been finalized.

Kentucky must now recognize all married couples regardless of their gender.

The only option for the AG/Gov now is to appeal the ruling to the 6th circuit, but as of right now the order is in full effect.

Except it doesn't.

At least so far NO court ANYWHERE has ruled the FFC clause requires it.

Every ruling to date has been based on equal protection rather than FFC.

Hmmm, suddenly the AG doesn't need those 90 days to think about whether to appeal....

Kentucky voters didn't give GAYS 90 days when they voted illegal discrimination into their constitution
.
So why should we give THEM 90 days?

Just who do they think they are?

The AG can still appeal the ruling, but it will be in effect in the meantime.

Remember, the Democratic AG is considering running for Governor in 2015 to replace the current Democratic Governor who is term limited.

So obviously he's deciding what would help or hurt him.

No. FFC requires that ALL STATE ACTS be legally recognized by other states. Not all state NON-ACTS. SCOTUS has already ruled this is so. look it up.

No, it doesn't work quite that way. The anti states must recognize contracts signed in other states. A marriage is, in fact, a contract. The pro states do not have to cancel contracts because another state refuses to grant them.

I was just making a joke.

The AG needed 90 days to mull an appeal over when, in the meantime, the ruling was stayed.

The point is now that the ruling is not stayed, the AG mysteriously doesn't need the 90 days. He will appeal asap now. That is the joke, but it's probably also perfectly true.

If this AG, about whom I know nothing, was not going to appeal the ruling then he would not have been defending the apparently unconstitutional law up until this juncture. This is KY in which you say he wants to run for higher office, after all.

Oh my god, is this true?!

This *is* funny. So the moment the ruling went through, he "suddenly" is going to appeal? Yeah, your logic definitely holds; I would agree in a moment.

Like what ?

You guys in Ohio are in the center of the Rust Belt. Out of the "top" 36 cities that have been shrinking the fastest, there are 7 cities in Ohio in that group, more than any state in the union. It won't belong until nearly all of Ohio looks like Detroit. Which, btw just started again to demolish thousands of abandoned houses and buildings, razing entire blocks of the city, and turning them into "urban prairie".
