I love how the same people that are always screaming "activist judge!!" and decrying judges that they claim are "legislating from the bench" (as if that's even possible) are suddenly demanding that their supreme court do what??? Legislate from the bench!!

New Mexico law doesn't ban marriage equality. Asking the court to install a ban that isn't there is a lot like legislating from the bench, isn't it??

I think they're basically going through the motions with this one, the reality of their situation being what it is. What makes you think that state law prohibits same sex marriages? It isn't an option on the form? They're only kidding themselves here.

If gay marriage destroys your marriage then you have a crappy marriage.
