    I think we are just about at the stalemate. Things are going to slow down.

    Define slow down?
    I mean since there potentially 14 more states in the next 2 years it doesnt seem like theres doing to be a slow down, there definitely might not be another year like this one thought thats for sure.


    also it seems that people might push very hard to drive at least one if not two cases to SCOTUS and well at this point I think thats going to be a victory depending on which case gets driven that far.

    If its one of the divorce/benefit cases then SCOTUS could simply rule in a narrow fashion and say states must grant divorces to all legally married or something of that nature but if one of the cases where am unconstitutional banned was overturned they will be hard pressed to punt.

    With the stay from SCOTUS Utah will have to be taken off that list for now

    Its being pushed to the appellate court, which was true before the stay was granted. Depending on that decision it may be appealed to SCOTUS. It almost belongs in its own category of confusion haha.

    yes correct and you are right if one isnt interested or paying attention it can get confusing

    i just hope everytime states try to infringe and violate individual rights people always push the issue as far as they can.

    Re: Equal rights/Same Sex Marriage how long until its a national reality?

    From what i understand the appeals court that's handling utah also has jurisdiction over oklahoma, so it makes sense that would be stayed.

    It certainly puts more pressure on scotus to rule when even red states have their bans struck down.
