Way to go, New Mexico!
Today, AP reports that New Mexico's highest court has ruled, and rightfully so, that you cannot deny a marriage license to a same-sex couple, thereby legalizing same-sex marriage in that state!
Woo hoo! Supremely amazing news from this state's Supreme Court!
New Mexico joins the ranks of 16 states that allow same-sex marriage, and the District of Columbia! Let's see if we can get it up to 50!
In the past, state statutes in New Mexico didn't prohibit or authorize gay marriage, but county clerks denied marriage licenses because the state's marriage license application has sections for male and female applicants.
But no more! All New Mexicans of all orientations can now legally marry whoever they want!
Looks like this development balances out all this icky Duck Dynasty business!
