  1. Teasing with a misleading headline is very shoddy journalism. As the article correctly states later, there is NO same-sex marriage ban in New Mexico. And the only reason there is no recognition of same-sex marriages in the state is because no one has tested the gender-neutral statute until now. This article vilifies a state that has actually very little contempt for the burgeoning institution of gay marriage. Neither the voters or the legislators have not assented to discrimination on this matter. And in fact, public consensus in the Land of Enchantment seems to be quite keen on allowing gay marriage.

    PN headline editors, you could have made this an interesting and truthful headline with the following:
    Mexico county begins issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, NM AG will not challenge them
    The fact that New Mexico’s Attorney General Gary King won’t challenge these licenses is more significant than a nine year old court decision.
