Interesting side note....the judge issuing the ruling is gay.


Should that matter, or does it? I dont know.


I just went "Hmmmmm".

I do not think the sexual preferences of the judge matter. I think it was an unjust proposition that should have never been passed.

The right wing cabal of Thomas, Alito, Kennedy, Roberts and Scalia are all wetting their pants to get this case.


And the conservatives were complaining about "activist judges" - of course it's ok if they're "activist" if they agree with them.

I am one that doesn't believe another's marriage has anything to do with my own.
