A federal district judge declared Indiana's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional Wednesday. Yes! That's some equal protection under the law!
And since judge Richard Young decided not to issue a stay on his ruling, same sex couples can start getting married today! Double yes!
Marion County Clerk Beth White in Indianapolis started issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples today and dozens of same sex couples showed up!
The court ruled that there was significant harm dealt to couples who were denied the right to marry the person that they loved! Excellent!
However, some of the clerks in Indiana's smaller counties have decided to hold off on issuing marriage licenses saying they seek direction on how to proceed from here.
Hopefully, they'll receive their direction ASAP! Congrats, citizens of Indiana!
