    Your belief that I have called any person a name (as opposed to accurately describing the beliefs you have expressed) is just another example of a bigoted belief, which is both petty and immature.

    I have to say that I am in a bit of shock. I would have sworn up and down that Utah would have been one of the last states. I know they are going to appeal, but it is nice to know that there is some semblance of sanity even in places heavily indoctrinated in religious beliefs.

    This is already under appeal and they have already asked for a stay.

    The biggest problem is that couples are getting married in other states and coming back home and asking for it to be recognized in states have define marriage as between a man and a women which is a violation of the states rights act. Where in another state cannot tell another state how to operate.

    This is going to end up back at the SC again under those grounds and they will have to decide something.

    I'm not avoiding an answer, it's just not relevant. I'm concerned about the feds abusing the Constitution most of all, it doesn't matter how this particular issue affects me personally.

    I think it was a federal judge that came in and made the decision, not the voters of the State of Utah.

    Re: Gay Marriage Ban Struck in Utah by Federal Judge

    And I am perfectly fine with a federal judge doing his job.

    Re: Federal judge strikes down Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage

    The Judge, rightly, ruled the Utah ban against Same Sex Marriage unconstitutional because we are not a Greek style Democracy of mob rule. Thus you cannot simply vote to restrict the rights of a minority without showing how granting that minority a right or privilege would impact the rights of others.

    There is simply no rational way of demonstrating how allowing same sex couples to marry impacts the rights of anyone else at all. Whether churches recognized those marriages or not is up to them. For example, you can divorce and remarry and the state will recognize your second marriage, yet the Catholic Church will still consider you married to your first spouse and thus living in sin with your second spouse.

    Face it social conservatives and religious fundamentalists, just like you have been on the wrong side of history on virtually every social issue concerning individual rights and liberty, you are on the wrong side of this one as well.

    Doesn't matter. Unconstitutional is unconstitutional. Doesn't matter if 100% of the voters support it.

    but it's still surprising that a judge in Utah would make the decision. Utah republicans had previously given this judge high praise when appointed.
