US: No state same-sex marriage ban remains unchallenged

  • Rumsey

    The U.S. has 50 states, not 51.

    • Maryland Kid

      Yeah, but in this respect, the District of Columbia effectively functions as a 51st State.

      • Bobbleobble

        In the article it says 20 states plus DC with challenges in the other 31. That makes 51 states plus DC. The maths is still wrong.

        • Maryland Kid

          You are very much correct. My mistake! Possibly, they are referring to Puerto Rico, where there has been a challenge filed as well. Either that, or it was just an error.

          • Josh

            If you want to be pedantic, the US has 46 states and four Commonwealths. But let’s not quibble over such details!

  • Christopher in Canada

    What a shame that these challenges had to be filed in the first place. What a way to run a railroad!

  • PeterinSydney

    Sadly, Australia is being left far far behind in marriage equality because of our medieval nasty prime minister M’abbott!

    What,I wonder, do these religious zealots think about all the praying that they’ve been doing to convince their sky-god to banish gay-marriage from the American Sodom and Gomorrah? They must really be pulling all their hair out in complete frustration. It’s odd, but I couldn’t feel the tiniest bit of sorrow for them. Even that NOM woman is conceding that all that praying was for naught. It shows, I think that preachers such as Joel Osteen who preaches to 45,000 every Sunday,are moved by the money rather than the fervency of religion.

      Their god obviously doesn’t give them what they want, but gives them what they need in spades – some humanity.
