Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Nearly 40 years after a Boulder County clerk first issued marriage licenses to same-sex couples, a clerk here is taking a similar course, albeit in a much altered political climate. Since June 25, Boulder County Clerk Hillary Hall has issued more than 100 marriage licenses to same-sex couples and has defied an order from the state attorney general that she cease doing so. Hall said she based her decision to start issuing the licenses on the June 25 decision by a federal appeals court to strike down Utah's ban on same-sex marriage, which is very similar to Colorado's.

Outside the courthouse, Hall's supporters led chants and waved signs. "I believe in equal rights," says Kathy Streid-Noe, a Boulder resident for more than 20 years whose daughter is in a same-sex relationship and whose aunt and uncle were in an interracial marriage when that was illegal in many states. "I have a strong belief that eventually, everyone who wants to get married will be able to do so. But sooner rather than later would be better."

So good of the Clerk to do so, but thats not how it works.

Another example of how the law and due process simply is not obeyed anymore.

Colorado's same-sex marriage ban falls (UPDATED)

UPDATE 1:55 p.m. Another state trial judge, District Judge Andrew Hartman of Boulder, ruled on Thursday that the Boulder County clerk may continue to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, but must notify those couples that "the validity of their marriages" depends upon whether the courts would later uphold the clerk's power to issue them. The following post includes a brief reference to the legal controversy over the licenses that have been issued by Boulder County Clerk Hillary Hall.

... check that out. If someone in illinois started issuing Concealed carry Permits just because Montana shot down their idiotic laws and became Shall Issue, this would be 700 posts long in five minutes.

*Mind you as of July 2013 technically Illinois is no longer "No Issue" but... uhhh.. the state sure likes to deny permits.

Due process of marriage equality has been stymied by unfounded, yet "legal" objection - and since the federal appeals court decision takes presidence those objections cannot be abided as legitimate any longer.

Would you just have us wait our entire lives to suit whom?
