    Too late. Most homosexuals in Utah who wanna marry already have.

    This is the proper ruling. Nearly all other states where gay marriages are legal were passed by their specific state governments. Not so in Utah. The majority of Utah, both citizens and legislature, are still opposed to gay marriage.

    One activist federal judge shouldn't be able to change that and to dictate to any state on such matters... especially when the rest of the country has been deciding this policy at the state level. It seems to create less controversy when individual states decide for themselves.

    @ Miss Piggie:

    Have you got any verifiable statistical numbers to back up your claim... or are you just shooting from the hip (mouth) with your claim... as has become the practice of so many liberal cause supporters?

    If your claim is true, then there's no reason for the gay couples who filed their suite to continue in court. They should just drop it. But they haven't... nor will they. Since you are mistaken (once again), they will keep pushing their liberal agenda with any activist judge they can find.

    "Have you got any verifiable statistical numbers to back up your claim... or are you just shooting from the hip (mouth) with your claim..."

    Shooting from the keyboard, actually (which is the prerogative of those who frequent these threads).

    But I used a modicum of logic in my shooting. Seems there was a heckava rush the few days that SSM was allowed. One would think that all who wanted to, got down to the clerks office/marryin' judge and mad it happen. In the last days the rush petered out.

    ".. as has become the practice of so many liberal cause supporters?"

    What? I'm not liberal... Do you think I live in Hollywood of something?

    "If your claim is true, then there's no reason for the gay couples who filed their suite to continue in court."

    Well, they missed the rush... perhaps they slept in or the alarm didn't go off.

    "They should just drop it. But they haven't... nor will they. Since you are mistaken (once again), they will keep pushing their liberal agenda with any activist judge they can find."

    Have it your way.

    Gays want marriage, and many straights don't.

    This is crazy.
