http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060929/ap_on_re_us/gay_marriage A judge ruled today that a gay couple from R.I. could marry in Mass. today. This despite the fact that Massachusetts has a long standing statute prohibiting couples from other states marrying in Massachusetts to avoid their home state law. So basically, gay marriage is more important to the judge then upholding the law. How many laws are judges willing to ignore and scrap to get gay marriage legal? And i hope the judge realizes that the political backlash to this is going to be huge.
