  1. Disciples of a con man, desperate to inflict as much suffering on peoples’ human rights as they can possibly get away with.

      A succession of conmen, not just one. From the Old Testament right through to Joseph Smith, it’s all been about someone convincing the populace with menaces.

  2. Looks like it’s a disgusting backward bigoted state of the USA.

    The state issued the licenses. This was no rogue clerk, but every single county. The state therefore has an obligation to those it issued those licenses to. Expect lawsuits by this time tomorrow.

    This is completely expected. The lawyers will have been building their cases for days.

    Pretty sure this is illegal. The stay only prevents future marriages, it has no bearing whatsoever retroactively. The state of Utah just opened itself up to an awful lot of lawsuits. Not sure SCOTUS will be too happy with them either.

  5. We’re about to see the truly vile nature of the heinous cult that runs the state of Utah.

  6. Law suits will follow and rightfully so.
