  1. Judge realised many trouble ahead if he not change his hate ways. He fool. Love is fraud only if you hating fool.

  2. Pretending to be a same-sex married couple in a state that bans it? Hardly an effective fraud. I think the judge is a bit of a fool, and spiteful one at that.

  3. “It’s a good sign when public officials are open-minded about the rights of the LGBT community.”.

    ….even better if they don’t need persuading.

    Bizarre that he allowed one woman’s name change and not the other — so only one of them would have been a fraud? Glad in the end he changed the ruling and it’s now on the books for other couples to look to.

  5. The moral of the story boys and lez’ is “dykes have feelings too”.

    At least in this case, the ACLU did something. Back in the 80’s & 90’s, all that they’d do was send out a form letter to those seeking help detailing anti-gay discrimination in the USA, and then do nothing more

  7. The ACLU is actually pretty effective, in this day and age anyways, in my eyes. You should keep up on them better, Darkmoonman. Perhaps in the 80s and 90s the laws didn’t exist to protect LGBT, so they couldn’t do much initially, but they are a major proponent of why we have those protections we lacked back then.
    (not to say they are utmost effective, but surely better than others that claim to be out for the good of the LGBT people).

  8. What ghastly petty homophobia and misuse of public office! Glad to hear it has been over-ruled. Surely this strengthens the argument for legalising same sex marriage.
