(CNN) - Utah officials will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court a lower-court ruling allowing same-sex marriage in the state, the state attorney general's office said Thursday.
Newly appointed Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes will seek a stay of the federal judge's ruling after state officials consult first with outside attorneys over the next few days.
I would say let democracy settle this ,but we tried that already.
What, are they afraid this ruling will snowball into allowing all types of crazy rulings? Like, oh I dunno, polygamy?
Conservative "christian" groups always like to legislate telling people what to do. Can you imagine what this country would become if they got their way and made this a "christian" country? There would be a pretty narrow legal way to behave and be "happy". Why are they so afraid of letting people find happiness in their own way? It is scary but it is also freedom.
@Silence Da Good- Take a look around next time your out and about. This a christian country.
but what would jesus do lefties? he would say marriage is between a man and a woman. now you all can't pick and choose which jesus you want to use for each topic. if you want to use jesus's words to justify your far left agenda, then his words should be be heeded on this topic as well. so what say all you lefties? let the hypocrisy flow forth.
....so the definition of...LIBERTY...is a Utah unknown...........
Well of course they are going to appeal it.It is like I have said this is one issue that will never be settled.
In Utah, with this ruling the irony is quite satisfying.
Polygamy is already making a move to become legal.
People's rights, or in this case the SUPPRESSION of people's rights, should never ever have been in a ballot for starters. Remember all those rulings against the Jim Crow Laws? Why did they happen in the first place? Because (starting in 1876) people's rights were removed/annulated by laws that were ennacted the way they were supposed tobe and to the local/state majority that was the right thing to do.
It never was then now it is now.
Sigh, me and my typos...
Please read 'It never was then nor it is now' in the last phrase...
@Silence DoGood: I agree completely. I'm a Catholic, and I feel that it's somewhat disingenuous that the USCCB (essentially the official Catholic political arm in the U.S.) decries gay civil marriage, but seems to have no problem with the fact that no-fault divorce reigns supreme in our country.
