A federal appeals court in San Francisco refused Tuesday to rehear a legal challenge to the state's same-sex marriage ban, sending the case to the
U.S. Supreme Court.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals made the decision, which was based on whether a majority of its active judges had agreed or refused to reconsider a
ruling in February in which two of its member judges declared the ban unconstitutional.

Court Says Gay Rights Trump Religious Rights
The New Mexico Court of Appeals upheld a ruling by the state’s Civil Rights Commission that a Christian photographer who refused to take pictures of
a gay couple’s commitment ceremony violated the state’s discrimination law.
“Americans in the marketplace should not be subjected to legal attacks for simply abiding by their beliefs,” senior counsel Jordan Lorence said in
a statement. “Because the Constitution prohibits the state from forcing unwilling artists to promote a message they disagree with, we will certainly
appeal this decision to the New Mexico Supreme Court.”
Here's what I say...
Get rid of government recognizing a civil union. Get rid of the 1,500 laws that go with it.
Remove the government, from yet again, another dabbling with the economy...
Let gays be gays and heterosexuals produce offspring. Let freedom rule.
Was not the act of marriage first recognized as a religious ceremony ?
Where in the constitution does it say that we have the right to marriage?
