    No. Nothing about Justice Granade's ruling forces probate judges to issue licenses. She even said as much in the opinion. This may change on Thursday, when she considers a request to order the judges to comply.

    People usually want a personalised cake for things like weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays. The "display" cake won't work. Besides, it's pretty damn ugly to deny a persons order based on their skin color, their gender, or their sexual orientation, none of which anybody has control over.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    The Governor's jurisdiction ends at the state line. I would love to see someone file a federal complaint against these judges for violating their civil rights.

    The governor doesn't control Federal Court contempt charges.


    An amended complaint has already been filed and a hearing is scheduled concerning Judge Don Davis refusal to issue licenses for Thursday at 1:00PM. The outcome of that hearing will either be a dismissal or injunction against Davis (probably in the form of a writ of mandamus). Then if Judge Davis doesn't comply he'd be subject to Federal contempt charges.

    Edit: And the SC this morning or yesterday declined to stay the Federal District Court's order pending appeal. Which puts any judges who fail to perform SS marriages in contempt. It also probably indicates how the court is going to go on it's upcoming SS marriage case.
    There is no possibility of contempt because they were not parties to the case.

    The decision is non binding because it is a district court case. It is not even binding within the same district much less the entire state. The only thing "binding" (for lack of a better word) is the order directed at the defendant, which is the Attorney General with no power over issuing marriage licenses.

    Then move to Bibleland, not the United States of America, we don't want to be ruled by a religious text, Christian or otherwise.

    Perhaps. But the fact that you're wrong pretty much does close off the topic
