    Pennsylvania clerk loses bid against gay marriage

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A U.S. Supreme Court justice has rejected a Pennsylvania county clerk's bid to stop gay marriages in the state while she tries to get standing in a legal case to stop them permanently.
    Without comment, Justice Samuel Alito on Wednesday rejected an appeal by Schuylkill County Orphans' Court Clerk Theresa Santai-Gaffney. The clerk can appeal to another justice, however.
    Justice Alito turned down the request to stop gay marriages in Pennsylvania, but the clerk who filed the motion can appeal to another Jusice. I've got news for her. If Alito turned her down, she won't find another justice to stop gay marriages in her state.

    She needs to get the Pope to give Alito a phone call.

    If she had done that a while ago we wouldn't be talking about this.

    Eventually, EVERY state will be allowing gay marriage. It's only a matter of time.
