And the dominoes keep falling.
Virginia is the latest state where a Federal Court has ruled that prohibitions against gays and lesbians getting married violates the Constitution. Yes, once more, we radical liberals are forcing our views down the throats of unsuspecting bigots through the terrible practice of “using the exact words of the Constitution.” (Hey, you ever notice that these homophobes always say we’re “shoving it down their throats”? Is that subconscious wish fulfillment or what?)
The decision is stayed pending an appeal. This means that either the Supreme Court will take all of these and make one final decision that will be applied to the entire country, or they will deny the appeals, thus confirming the lower court’s decision, permitting marriages in those states only.
A Federal Court yesterday also ruled that Kentucky could not refuse to accept marriages that occurred in states where the marriage would be legal. The issue as to Kentucky’s anti-gay marriage law was not before the court, so that may still be coming in another case.
There are still plenty of other cases in the pipeline (including here in Pennsylvania, where our Attorney General has refused to support our states’ anti-marriage law). So this trip is far from over.
