In upholding the Defense of Marriage Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton, Taylor said that even though the law "has a disproportionate effect on homosexual individuals," the government's desire to promote procreation is a valid reason for infringing on the rights of gay couples.

in a case brought by Christopher Hammer and Arthur Smelt

So would it be Christopher Hammer Smelt or Arthur Smelt Hammer?
(And that's okay, Arthur. Don't tell me how me smelt.)

The headline implies that there's a US law against gay marriage that was upheld by the court. That is false. The law that was conditionally upheld (pending further reveiew, once the time for that is "ripe,") is a California law.

The Federal Judge in question upheld the law, nothing more, nothing less.

Contrary to what leftist orthodoxy claims, that's all a judge is supposed to do.

This isn't the end of it. The Nine Circus could use this as a vehicle to declare the same sex marriage ban unconstitutional in its circuit.
