NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal appeals court on Sunday declined to stop officials in Utah from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples following a judge's ruling last week that overturned the state's ban on gay marriage.

Send the state troopers to arrest the people trying to give out the licenses! For crying out loud, will any red state AG’s grow some balls.
Rule by judicial fiat. Who needs a legislature?
I’m offended! These “judges” need to be suspended indefinitely.
No. This can’t continue!
The Federal State Of America where minorities rule.
I have to agree. I haven’t seen such a flagrant abuse of judicial authority in over a decade! Why won’t the AG just arrest these dirtbags giving out licenses? What’s Obama gonna do? Send Eric Holder’s boys to arrest him?
First the Federal courts legislated the wholesale killing of innocent human life. Now they have condoned the vile molestation of young boys by perverted older men. The stench of rotting aborted humans clings to the Federal courts and the Judges are guilty of crimes against humanity.
Judges are the scum of the earth 90% of the time. This is how they intend to force it on EVERYONE!
There’s a supernatural and Satanic stupidity covering almost every pol. We’ve put our faith in them and our system to fix our country (we really have). I think we can see our folly. God can help us.
After the 5-4 decision on CA marriage the Obama judicial appointees know they can impose same sex marriage on all the states, without resistance in courts.
Justice Kennedy was the key that made this happen.
One justice. He destroyed marriage in this nation.
Fixed it for you...
It’s a decision by a lower court.
Scalia or Thomas should step in and grant a stay.
They wont bother.
Like us they already know 5-4 the SCOTUS has decided same sex marriage is a new constitutional right.
While Kennedy is the key vote this was really caused by Obama being elected.
They shouldn’t have to. The people of Utah should be demanding heads over this. Utah of all places. If it can happen there it can happen anywhere.
They will “grow balls” when the people of Utah get their act together and demand that this crap be stopped. Cracker Barrel their sorry butts.
It’s about time to start impeaching thee judges; even Federal ones.
Something is amiss with the geography here (as well as the substance of the ruling, of course). The dateline of the Reuters story is New York, which could not possibly be the location where a federal circuit court taking an appeal from Utah District Court would sit. IIRC, this appeal would go to the Tenth Circuit, which covers most of the states in the Rocky Mountain West. The article, for some strange reason, does not specify which circuit court and which judge or judges heard the appeal, nor does it tell us where it occurred. Are they hiding something?
That the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, covering New York, declined to issue an injunction in Utah which is out of its jurisdiction, and Reuters is pretending that that’s newsworthy?
