Texas' Same Sex Marriage Ban STRUCK DOWN! Federal Judge Rules It Unconstitutional!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitik

texas gay same sex marriage ban unconstitutional federal judge ruling

Texas is unfortunately one of many states with a same sex marriage ban. But thanks to a decision by Federal Judge Orlando Garcia, it may not be much longer.

His Honor ruled on Wednesday that the law is unconstitutional, mostly because it served no "legitimate governmental purpose."

That's another way of saying it's a bunch of malarky! Srsly, how does people who love each other getting the same benefits as you do affect you?

Justice may be blind, but today at least it isn't dumb! But don't book that Texas dude ranch for your nuptials just yet.

The ruling won't go into effect immediately, and during the lengthy appeals process, the law will remain on the books.

Sadly, the debate will rage on deep in the heart of Texas.

It's official! Start popping that champagne, Chicagoans!

A federal judge just ruled that same-sex couples can start getting married immediately in the Chicago area, pushing it forward from the June 1st date mandated in the Illinois bill that legalized same-sex marriage in the state.

Because the bill passed by only one vote in November, it didn't have the requisite yeas to put it into effect before June 1st.

However, after the ACLU and Lambda Legal won a lawsuit in December, which granted same-sex couples where one of the partners had a terminal illness the right to marry, they sought to have all gay couples the right to marry ASAP in Cook County, which they just won!

U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman had this to say about the momentous decision:

Aloha (hello) to same sex marriage, and aloha (goodbye) to single life for many couples!

Moments after a law went into effect allowing same sex marriages in the state of Hawaii, there was a slew of happy wedding ceremonies, and we could not be more excited to hear about the first couples coming forward to tie the knot.

Above are Keola Akana and Ethan Wung getting a high five from a licensed marriage agent who married them! Aw we hope they totally rode each others' hung tens afterwards!

Hawaii is the 15th out of 16 states to legalize same sex marriages, and hopefully one day it will be the 15th out of 50 to do so! Congrats to all the newlyweds!

Uh, Mount Rushmore? We've got your next face to add!

George H. W. Bush was 41st President of the United States, but he is the 1st on the list of awesome ex-Commander-in-Chief things done this week!

The former President served as a key witness in a same-sex marriage ceremony in Maine! The two brides, Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen, apparently love the Bush…family! They're all apparently old friends!

And Mr. President even gave them a present… two full Presidential pardons! No, just kidding. He gave them some FEED bake ware, a product started by George's graddaughter whose profits go to the needy.

What an executive kind of guy! Looks like George faithfully executed the office of a wedding guest!

Chris Christie Signs Bill Banning Gay Conversion Therapy!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal Matters

chris christie

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie gave his big, long John Hancock to a law banning gay conversion therapy on Monday!

That's right, Christie signed his approval to legislation that forbids therapists from trying to change the sexual orientations of minors! Good man!

Although the Republican Governor previously vetoed a bill that legalized same-sex marriages in the state last year, this is a huge step forward for those who rightly believe that you should be able to marry whoever you want!

Christie must be finally getting the notion that you can dot your "i"s, but you don't cross your LGBTs!

Sad news? New Jersey is only the second state in the nation, aside from California, that's passed the gay conversion ban!

Hurry up, Amurica! This is the land of the free, not home of the brainwashed!
