Saguaro, above, impugns the lgbt community, seeing a conspiratorial, orchestrated application for marriage licenses, entirely for political purposes.

I see no conspiracy. This was nothing more than honest, pent-up demand, and for those committed couples, a chance of a lifetime. Think of it as a gold rush. A gold RING rush!

The Amendment 3 lawsuit was very closely followed by the lgbt community. Many couples must have asked themselves, "What if they legalize us getting married?" So, when the ruling came down, hundreds who wanted to marry dropped everything and raced to the clerks' offices with a sense of urgency. No conspiracy, anymore than the "Black Friday" sales are a conspiracy, except without all the pushing and shoving.

Man, if I could give you a thousand 'likes', I would....

@Dan Maloy: "A white, American male....America's newest minority and responsible (supposedly) for everything that's bad." Nice try but it appears as though you have a guilty conscience. White males who respect all individuals rights to equal protection under the constitution will never get lumped into that "newest minority" group you made up. Only the ones who do not respect all peoples rights will get lumped into the "some white males" minority group and in that case cry me river cause they're bigots and deserve what they get.
