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.
“...this was fully intentional....”
Of course it was.
And if the law doesn’t matter anymore, and some weaselly little bureacrat can just break it, then we can carry guns openly without licenses, drive as fast as want, not pay PA taxes, etc.,
I mean, hey, the law doesn’t matter anymore, right? Because the Registrar or Wills says so.
This guy needs to be bitchslapped back into his place pronto, and removed from his job.
Is that Jerry’s bookie from Seinfeld who had his thumbs closed in the trunk.
thumb in the trunk.... that is so ghey
That's because it is child abuse.
He's not very bright, because his website lists the types of payment excepted (that's instead of "accepted" for any LIV trolls reading this)

“Their marriage is no different than anyone elses, except there is no penis involved.”
As most men will attest, there isn’t much penis involvement in any long term marriage.
No. He actually looks more like Kevin Youkilis.
But your post reminded me: “That Michael Jordan, he’s such a *phony*.”
Haha! I miss that show so much.
“Not that there’s anything wrong with that...”+
[[Poor kids, this seems like child abuse.]]
It is child abuse. Those kids will grow up without a father. A woman in a butch haircut is not a father.
Speak for yourself.
What, exactly, is a “same-sex” marriage?
I have seen no evidence whatsoever that a homosexual relationship is anything more than a “best friend” relationship with a physical component. I have not seen anyone present evidence that people of the same sex undergo the same changes in brain chemistry that happens when men and women pair up. Until such is scientifically established, I will not accept that homosexual friendships are the same as heterosexual bonding. Circumstantial evidence suggests that they are not.
We all know durned well that there is a father around somewhere, if these two women are raising little boys. It’s bad enough on children to be raised by an abnormal person. I hope, at least, that these little boys are given the opportunity to interact with their father(s). They probably are not, though.
Where are his hands?
reeks of a set up.
These are just hedonists demanding the public acknowlege they public display of sex fetish.
Actually I meant to write “and without licenses”, but it didn’t come out that way!!
I’ve had CCW since PA went “shall issue”.
Philly cops lost their minds when they see a Citizen doing open carry...
I love our conceal carry license, $25 and no stupid self defense classes or any crap like that. The only bad thing is we need more state reciprocity agreements!!
RE State Reciprocity:
Our wonderful new subversive AG just messed with our Florida and Virginia Reciprocity. The Governor needs to step on her, and quick.
Wait a sec. Is that what same sex is? I didn't know I needed a license.
I am ashamed of my County and Country. My Mother is rolling over and over in her grave. THIS A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC FOUNDED ON JUDO-CHRISTIAN principals.
The clown in charge really ticked me off yesterday with the frivolous scandal attitude yesterday. OBAMA and HOLDER LIED.
Sri for the typos...I stopped smoking and I have an itchy trigger finger right now...We are so hosed.
Put 2 horns on him and he could almost pass for satan.
So what other laws can we now simply ignore since we now live in a lawless society.
These low level public servant maggots need to be arrested. They’ve broken the law. Law? What law? We don’t have laws in this country anymore.
No disagreement here.
