Deep in the nations Bible Belt, new signs emerged this weekend of an evolution among Republican governors on gay marriage, an explosive social issue that has divided Americas families and politics for years.
While the Republican Partys religious conservatives continue to fight against same-sex marriage, its governors appear to be backing off their opposition- in their rhetoric, at least. For some, the shift may be more a matter of tone than substance as the GOP tries to attract new voters ahead of the midterm elections.

50 state homosexual marriage is in our future, and will probably happen via Supreme Court order. Since the courts are apparently the only ones in society who are allowed to define marriage, its academic what any of us think.

What governor, where?
Oh, multiple governors, or just republican governors in general.
At this point, the Supreme Court should be dissolved along with its allies at lower levels. It’s a direct threat to liberty.
“Walker, too, said that Republican governors would be “legally obligated” to support gay marriage should the Supreme Court rule in its favor.”
Okay, THIS is a problem. For me, this makes Scott Walker ineligable for the nomination should he seek it. By this logic, he is legally obligated to support abortions as well. Insane. The Repukes truly are USELESS.
