Another one bites the dust!

Missouri judge overturns state's ban on same-sex marriage


A Missouri judge has overturned the state's ban on same-sex marriages and ordered registrars to start issuing licenses to gay and lesbian couples.

In a ruling Wednesday, Judge Rex Burlison struck down the ban, declaring it unconstitutional and saying officials should give licenses to same-sex couples seeking to get married.


Only about 18 states to go!

I think we got down to 16 states before the SCOTUS repealed Interracial Marriage bans on the federal level.

Good for society as long as the sincerity is genuine.

But the Judge in this case was appointed by a Democrat Governor.

Many will see this as possible sour grape retaliation.

Weak yes, but some will cite this as political.

This is a good thing for our society.

There is no reason my fellow citizens shouldn't be able to be married if that is their desire.

Lawyers win no matter what. More fees for the divorce attorneys.

We may have some disagreements, but there are some things that we can find common ground on. That's really the only way this country is going to change... if we come together instead of buying into the divisiveness we're being manipulated with.

Interesting update to the OP:

Many Missouri Counties Not Granting Gay Garriages



Many Missouri counties are declining to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples after a judge in St. Louis ruled that the state's ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional.

The president of the Recorders' Association of Missouri said the group was advising county officials Thursday that the Wednesday ruling by St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison applies only there and not the rest of the state.


I thought it was the STATE'S gay marriage ban that was overruled, not an individual county's... "county's rights"? Hmmm...

Now they must go to court over that issue.

Personally I wish they would just get rid of tax breaks for married couples, get rid of marriage certificates issued by the goobermint. Then go after rogue activist judges that are disregarding valid contracts like power of attorney and last wills. Then no need for government issued gay marriage. Everyone's happy.
