Since this something I have posted about, it seems appropriate to post the latest news courtesy of THE FAMILY FOUNDATION BLOG.
Underscoring the arrogance of the two judges on the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals who refused to stay their decision striking down Virginia’s Marriage Amendment, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman, the U.S. Supreme Court today issued a stay of that decision, citing its previous stays in similar cases. Almost all legal experts expected the stay, even as it was issued nearly at the 11th hour. If the stay had not occurred, same-sex marriages would have been legal in Virginia staring tomorrow, as many hopeful liberal media headlines reminded us this morning.
Even Attorney General Mark Herring, who abdicated his duty to defend Virginia law, petitioned the High Court for the stay, recognizing the utter confusion and disarray that would cause in the state when and if the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately hears and reverses the decision, perhaps early next summer. That didn’t please many hard core homosexual rights activists who wanted it right here, right now. (continued here)
