    Why are you OK NP about the definition changing when it was changed to fit your "marriage", yet you cannot allow others the same? That is the epitome of hypocrisy and bigotry. Sorry....it just is.

    Weren't they issued because a judge stepped in and halted the law?

    If this is an indication of anything it's probably an indication that legislating from the bench is a really, really bad idea.

Nothing new.
    Just keep trying to catch up to the civil rights train. Its done past years ago.

    why is it judicial activism??????? It was interpreting a law and was in line with dozens of other court rulings.

    Oh and was the Hobby Lobby case activism...if not why not?

    No it's comparison. But hey, those against interracial marriage are looked down upon, so eventually will those that are against SSM. You are in good group there LOL.

    Well, that's what I've since come to understand. That a Federal judge stepped in. However, the governor, if he was going to step in, in my opinion, should have done so before any licenses were issued. It's not like this litigation was a surprise. The governor knew it was going on and knew a decision was imminent.

    It is very unfair, in my opinion, that people who were issued a license and got married now find out they aren't. IOW, the governor should have immediately acted to stop issuance of marriage licenses to these people.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indiana won't recognize hundreds of same-sex marriages that were performed before a federal court halted a lower-court's decision to lift the state's gay marriage ban, the governor's office said Wednesday.



    Indiana won't recognize same-sex marriages
    *shrug* It's only a matter of time. The fight for SSM is over and advocates of SSM have won decisively. These are just rearguard actions. What's more you know it too, this is just something that allows you a fleeting opportunity to gloat before it too is struck down.

    So you cant make the point for your issue, yet you can do what you can to try to insult and minimize other posters that disagree with you. Nice fail on your part.

    so you forgot that when you posted....because that is not how you addressed it.

    You wrote this:
    They reserve the right to do that with every other kind of license they issue.....business license, liquor license, to practice law, to appraise realestate, to drive......I don't see why the marriage license should be any different; it's not like you have to brake up if your license is voided.
    So here is the thing....the license was issued and used in a legal and appropriate manner. (The weddings were conducted and that is what the license is allowing). Once done you can't make the legally issued license null and void and retroactively then say the wedding wasn't legal. To go to your examples:

    Business license--yes you can revoke it because the business is still active....what you can't do is revoke it and say that all business conducted under the legal license in the past is no longer valid.

    Liquor license--same thing. A liquor license is active and let's say you sell for 5 years....then it is revoked. You stop selling....you can't get charged with bootlegging for those 5 years.

    Practice Law--again...same thing. Prior to the license going invalid for ANY REASON the cases do not have to be retried.

    Should I go on?

    The license for weddings were used and the nature of them is that they are a one shot deal. Like a liquor license you might buy to sell wine at a fund raiser. Once used up it is no longer usable but anything that happened while it was valid is still legal. Pence is playing fast and loose with his authority and he will pay for it in the long run. I already see that happening within his own party.
