Federal court: No halt to gay marriages in Utah
Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | 12/24/13 | BRADY McCOMBS (AP)

SALT LAKE CITY — A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that gay marriages can continue in Utah, denying a request from the state to halt same-sex weddings that have been occurring at a rapid rate since last week.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' rejection of Utah's request for an emergency stay marks yet another legal setback for the state. The same federal judge who ruled that Utah's same-sex marriage ban violates gay and lesbian couples' rights previously denied the state's request to halt the marriages.

The appeals court said in its short ruling that a decision to put gay marriage on hold was not warranted, but said it put the case on the fast track for a full appeal of the ruling.

Rule by judge. We no longer have any need for state legislatures or public referenda.

Next time a President, whether GOP or Dem, wants to drag us into war, I’ll think: why die for Obamacare? why die for gay marriage?

Judges are using pretty much the same logic of Supreme Court Justice Taney in the Dred Scott decision. If slavery was to be legal anywhere, then no state could exclude it, like Minnesota in that decision, which was as responsible for the Civil War as anything.

Why isn’t Governor Herbert simply nullifying the ruling, asserting state privilege, and ordering ALL clerks to deny SSM licenses? I’d like to see this jerkoff Obozo appointee TRY and hold the entire State of Utah in contempt of his tiny bench. He would simply lose. Don’t bother appealing. NULLIFY and assert the 10th Amendment NOW!

Totally agree. The time for “going through the process” is over. If I was Governor, I would have done exactly as you stated.

Next time a President, whether GOP or Dem, wants to drag us into war, I’ll think: it’s nice to at least have a president after five (and soon to be eight) years under the usurper.

Tennessee nana ..........what about your perversion of christlike sympathy. Instead of lamenting this evil brought on a God fearing people, you delight in it.

The left will keep pushing the conservatives until a civil war erupts.

Teppe you know that I have always regarded the Mormon religious tenet of polygamy as evil and against God...

polygamy is equal to homosexuality in God’s eyes..

The Bible does not give anyone permission to commit the sin of polygamy any more than it does homosexuality...

anyone claiming that God condones polygamy is in error..

I agree with that. It is my opinion that they do not believe it will happen, so they feel emboldened to push.
