Well, well, well, I didn't realize how far along the lawsuit process was in Utah. A district judge just struck down their anti-SSM law:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/192783257/Uta ... age-Ruling

I wonder how long it will take this one to move on appeal. Maybe Tenth Circuit next summer or so, and SCOTUS rules on it in 2015? Will the case that finally decides it all be known as Kitchen v. Herbert (or vice versa)?

When can we expect to see polygamist same-sex marriages receiving the blessing of the state?

Funny you say that, because although polygamy itself wasn't struck down, the anti-cohabitation portion of Utah's polygamy law was also struck down just last week:

https://ecf.utd.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin/sh ... 1cv0652-78

It hasn't been a good month for the Beehive State.

I read about the ruling. Any chance of the whole statute getting struck down, or is that a bridge too far?

Doubtful, primarily because the plaintiffs weren't even challenging that part of the law.

I think I made a similar comment in one of the GD threads but I can't stand when someone makes their case against same sex marriage (or any gay issue really) with the line "God created Adam & Eve not Adam & Steve".
And nice job with the Mormon tweet :thumbsup:

There's only one poster in RM history that I can remember being against it, and that was davejeni, of "Germany will betray the world and invade Iraq/Iran/Israel/etc" fame.
