Court rules against gay marriage bans in 2 states

There are 23 comments on the The Lebanon Daily News story from Sep 4, 2014, titled Court rules against gay marriage bans in 2 states. In it, The Lebanon Daily News reports that:

A U.S. appeals court ruled Thursday that same-sex marriage bans in Wisconsin and Indiana violate the U.S. Constitution, in another in a series of courtroom wins for gay-marriage advocates. The unanimous decision by the three-judge panel of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago bumps the number of states where gay marriage will be legal from 19 to 21. Since last year, the vast majority of federal rulings have declared same-sex marriages bans unconstitutional.

Yeah! Good times!

Do you hear that?? That's the sound of millions of idiots screaming and crying because they just got bitch-slapped for trying to use the government and their own ignorance to harm children.(Yes, it's in the ruling! I read it already!)

I've read that a County Clerk in Indiana is issuing Marriage Licenses, but I don't believe a stay has been issued as of yet!!!

A unanimous ruling in just 9 days.

That's got to be some kind of record!

And this weekend U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg will again officiate at a samesex wedding.

Decades of work ...

Ok, BUT did the udges stay their decision in these case, or not ? Because the article doesn't say.
Anybody know ?
I know. They did not stay the decision. But they delayed its taking effect for 21 days to give the parties time to request a stay from the Supremes.

Now we wait for the 6th circuit decisions which heard their cases a month ago. But they've got 6 cases from 4 states, and it's likely to be a split 2-1 ruling one way or the other. So that will take longer to write. Maybe it'll come out tomorrow, but more likely it'll be sometime in October.

Posner did everything but just come out and call them talibangelicals.

“Our pair of cases is rich in detail but ultimately straightforward to decide....The challenged laws discriminate against a minority defined by an immutable characteristic, and the only rationale that the states put forth with any conviction — that same-sex couples and their children don’t need marriage because same-sex couples can’t produce children, intended or unintended — is so full of holes that it cannot be taken seriously.”

Nice to see the long overdue mockery.

"Says the"

Hey cretin, posting "Exactly" as a reply adds nothing. Nor do all your other posts which consist of one word. Also, it's offensive to have an idiot agree or pretend to agree or accidentally agree with me.

Of course your posts in which you try for full sentences don't do much, either.

Wow! Someone basically complimrents you and you lash out with bile and hate. What did your mama do to you, anyway? Was she a cun+ like you, or did some other tragedy make you an anti-social f@ckbag?
