Same-sex marriage bans do not pass any level of scrutiny. Over and over we see this. Gender leads to intermediate scrutiny, if you think you can argue past that test, go for it. What is the important state interest that a same sex marriage ban is substantially related to?
Seriously, Windsor already decided this. If you don't believe me, ask this guy:

Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
the judge ruled correctly on this one. still, it was pretty surprising. same sex couples began getting married in Marion county yesterday afternoon. watched video coverage of the first one with my GF yesterday when i got home from work. neither of us could really believe it.
here is more info, specific to Indiana :
What it means: Questions about same-sex marriage ruling
from what i've heard, not all counties are playing ball yet, and the AG has filed an emergency motion for a stay until the ruling can be appealed.
if you're a same sex couple wanting to marry in Indiana, it would be a good idea to go to Boone, Hamilton, Hendricks, or Johnson county, and you should do it today. my guess is that they find a judge who will give them the emergency stay pretty soon.
As I've written a few times, the other states should just read the handwriting on the wall and stop wasting their taxpayers' money fighting it.
And the people of Indiana and Utah lose. Not supposed to be this way.Gay marriage wins in Indiana and Utah
