Skip to comments.PA County issues same-sex marriage license
Posted on 07/25/2013 2:20:44 PM PDT by HawkHogan
Five same-sex couples obtained marriage licenses Wednesday in a suburban Philadelphia county defying a state ban on such unions, but the governor's spokesman said the local officials lack the power to suspend state law.
Alicia Terrizzi and Loreen Bloodgood, of Pottstown, were the only couple to marry right away, exchanging vows in a park before a minister and their two young sons.
"We're not setting out to be pioneers. We don't think our family is any different than anybody else," said Terrizzi, a 45-year-old teacher. "We've been waiting a long time for this."
The licenses issued Wednesday in Montgomery County are believed to be the first to same-sex couples in Pennsylvania, the only northeastern state without same-sex marriages or civil unions.

Pretend? Not after Anthony Kennedy makes them real!
Poor kids, this seems like child abuse.
This could be your path to a tough re-election campaign next year. Or not.
Guess what? I think you're different from a WHOLE LOT of other folks.
Their marriage is no different than anyone else’s , except there is no penis involved. Well!! not a real one anyway.
Apparently the Liberaltarians didn’t see this one coming either. Thank Goodness we’ve left marriage up to the states and trashed that unconstitutional DOMA!
Actually, a rogue clerk counterfeited some marriage certificates. That is all that happened.
If you see posts of interest to Pennsylvanians, please ping me.
Issue a sham marriage license.
Wait for a Christian to challenge the marriage license in the courts.
Oppose the Christians all the way to the Supreme Court.
Wait for Justice Kennedy to write his majority opinion.
It’s illegal, and the Governor needs to step on this little rodent registrar who on took it on himself to do this - AND the subversive AG who’s not stomping on him.
Pottstown is a hole in the wall town no nothing town...and last I knew fully Demo/liberal town and once upon a time highly union....leave it to the perverts and they’ll push until someone pushes back!
"In 1996, the Pennsylvania Legislature and governor enacted a law clarifying that marriage is between one man and one woman," Medaglia said. "Based upon that law, Pennsylvania Orphans' Court Clerks are only permitted to issue marriage licenses to heterosexual couples until our law is changed either by legislative action or judicial decision. So far, none have occurred."
Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania Register of Wills & Clerks of Orphans' Court Association adopted a resolution Wednesday during its annual conference in Washington, Washington County, opposing same-sex marriages.
The register of wills cannot change the laws of this commonwealth by simply ignoring them,”.... Ferman said in a statement....... “If that change comes, it will be through Pennsylvania courts or the Legislature.”
HAHAHAHAHAHA!... Oh really...Obama does it every day of the week!
Looks like the Liberal wacked woman are going to break all the rules and shove what they want down everyones throat....like it or not....just like Obama does.
This isn’t about same sex marriage for them...it’s about the notority for the havoc they intend to create by doing so. Just wait and see...this was fully intentional.
We are living in ‘a lawless society’ now....expect more of everybody jumping over the laws and doing as they please....
I am so sick of the gays and sexual perverts.....not to mention the press for standing with them.
