    A Federal court said it wasn't, though. Possibly that's a bit above his pay grade? This isn't just three licenses -- this is hundreds. *shrug*

    No, actually precisely his job. To enforce the laws made by the people of his state. We know where the founders and framers fell on this issue (negation of the will of the people by judicial activism), they sided with the state's chief executive. That's why Marbury never took his SOS seat despite the SCOTUS decision saying it was his. Jefferson reminded the court that he had a standing army at his disposal. Madison told them to go suck a lemon and took the chair.

    Either open up marriage to anyone who wants to get married or remove government from the licensing process.

    There are a gayzillian other far more important issues to deal with. I don't understand the obsession.
    America has a large number of conservatives who are really, really obsessed with what two dudes they've never met might be doing in their bedrooms.

    It wasn't illegally issued. Same-sex marriage was legal at the time.

    The chief executive officer doesn't decide what the law says.

    You fool yourself if you think there aren't also a large number of religious liberals who are also, more silently, really, really obsessed with what two dudes or two gals they've never met might be doing in their bedrooms.

    You should tell that to President Obama.

    Clearly less than the so-called conservatives.

    Religious conservatives, yes - but not my kind of conservative. My kind of conservative wants the government to stay out of my wallet and out of my bedroom. It's why liberals are so irritating sometimes - they claim to want to live their personal lives without interference, but then they're always pushing for government to fund and be legislatively involved in people's personal lives.

    Uhh, which part of my personal life is being funded by the government?
