Utah! You’re fantastic. The AP is reporting same-sex couples have already gotten hitched in Salt Lake City. More on today’s decision here: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/federal-judge-strikes-down-utah-same-sex-marriage-ban
One of the best parts about today’s ruling is that U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby cited Justice Antonin Scalia’s fire-breathing dissent regarding DOMA in his overturning the ban. Why? Because Scalia breathlessly warned that the SCOTUS decision in the Windsor case would open the floodgates to doing away with state bans. Like Utah’s.
Hey Scalia. You like apples? HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES?
