Let's hope the New Mexico Supreme Court makes the right decision, legally AND morally, and rules that marriage equality is the law of the land in New Mexico.

What are they gonna say? "The State Constitution doesn't prohibit it, and the Federal government recognizes it." What else IS there to say? Are they gonna try to "Prop 8" these marriages, and invalidate them? Didn't work so well for Prop 8. Done deal.

It will be interesting to see if the NM Supreme Court accepts this petition from the counties now that there have been lower court rulings.

Will they issue an injunction preventing any more marriage licenses from being issued while they deliberate?

So many questions......
