Two weeks off to get that hot husband of mine birthdayed up and look at all the changes:
A Bush-appointed federal judge ruled Kentucky must honor gay marriages performed in other states.
Nevada's governor and AG withdrew their defense of the state's ban on gay marriage from a trial that has just been granted an expedited hearing.
Virginia's governor and AG announced they will not defend the state's anti-marriage-equality law in court.
AG Eric Holder announced additional equalities for same-sex married couples. And he repeated that the federal government will recognize those Utah gay marriages even though the state won't and has since halted them.
Scotland became the 17th country to approve marriage equality nationwide (effective October) in a romping vote of 105 for and only 18 against. Gay weddings begin in England and Wales on March 29.
A Clinton-appointed federal judge in Oklahoma ruled the state's ban on marriage violated the US Constitution. The decision is stayed pending an appeal.
A Clinton-appointed federal judge in Texas heard a request to block the state's ban on gay marriage, but did not issue a ruling, saying he would do so, "sometime."
Bucking the trend, Indiana lawmakers move forward a bill to ban marriage equality. The even worse version of the bill includes a purely evil "second sentence," that would also ban civil unions and prevent employers from offering benefits to same-sex couples. If it passes it will go to a voter referendum in November. UPDATE: Now, not before 2016.
Plaintiffs in Louisiana and Missouri join the fray, bringing the total number of states with legal challenges to their bans on marriage equality to twenty-four.
A good place for all the breaking news on the topic is Freedom To Marry.
