  1. Surely the Senator has bigger things to worry about?

    No as a Republican all he can think of is what us gays get up in our own homes.

    1. I love it when these paragon’s of virtue and self-appointed moral guardians cannot help themselves and get frothed-up about ‘the gays’. Do they never stop to ask themselves “WHY am I so interested in homosexuality and what gay people get up to?” Do they never think, “What does my obsession say about ME”? Well, I’ll tell them what it says. It says …. “Show me a homophobe – I’ll show you a closet case …”.

  2. Laughable that he’s accusing the judge of “making” laws when clearly he is upholding the current (gender-neutral) laws of the State.

    Good, go for it. They must be unaware of the DOMA ruling and the fact people who are gay cannot be excluded from marriage, regardless of screwed-up Federal and state constitutions.

    They would be thrown out of court.

    Ship has sailed you GOP neanderthals :)

  4. What a shame these vile Republican homophobes have nothing better to do with their time …..

    The law in New Mexico doesn’t disallow this. There is nothing to prevent licenses being issued, therefore why should they not be? Because the Senator and his cronies don’t like the idea?

    He needs to understand they banged that drum so hard they broke it.

  6. Good luck, dear. I hope you spend lots of money.

    “Does the legislature with the consent of the governor make the law or is this now the wild, wild, wild, west where each judge makes his or her own law?”

    The legislature with the consent of the governor makes the law. And in 1972, the legislature and the governor made the marriage law gender-neutral. So far, three different state judges in three different counties have each reached exactly the same conclusion: The legislature was clear in 1972 when they made the law gender-neutral that discrimination on the basis of sex is not allowed.
