Now if we could just get our loser Governor to order the state to recognize the marriages he admits were legally contracted.

Legally, I don't think the state can refuse to recognize them. On what legal basis ? "I don't like them" is not a legal basis.

Unfortunately we'll have to take the loser GOPasaurs to court to force them to recognize them.

Btw, we haven't gotten a ruling out of the similar case in Utah yet.

Why don't Holder and Obama just step out of their respective closets? They're both switch hitting rump rangers with a radical agenda that seems to always circle back to sodomy based unions. They should just proclaim that they like it up the poop shoot and be done with the charades. Then maybe the two assholes could concentrate on the REAL problems that face this nation. Like the dead in the water economy and the rash of democrat politicians who are getting caught in FBI stings.
I have a better question. Why don't you shut your ignorant and bigoted mouth and give us all a rest?

Apparently, homosexuals here approve of the DOJ abandoning legal procedure and respect even for Federal rulings. The DOJ under Obama/Holder upstaging courts and State legislatures when it serves their agenda should serve as established precedent, when a Conservative Presidency and DOJ does the same. Liberals embracing the behavior of a National Socialist dictatorship should remember they started it.

There are federal laws that prohibit the federal government from recognizing LEGAL marriages?
