Utah asks Supreme Court to block same-sex marriage

(CNN) – Utah officials have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to immediately block enforcement of a federal judge's ruling allowing same-sex couples to be legally married in the state.

An emergency appeal was filed on Tuesday with Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who could rule herself or ask the rest of the court to weigh in.

    The Radical Right wing that utters "small gov'ment", loves government spending, regulation, and laws that come down telling folks just what to do morally.

    this is not about same sex marriage,, but equality under the constitution,,because a legal marriage is given by the state and county they , the license have to be available to all couples who want to marry,This has nothing to do with religion,The religious right would have you believe otherwise, That is why same sex marriage will be available in every state, to do anything else would be unconstutional, even Scalia agrees with this.

    Hey if that is your thing, spend the years gathering support and petitioning your congress person, just like the gay community. Let us know how your thing works out.
