The federal government will recognize marriages performed in Utah after a judge struck down the state’s same-sex marriage ban, Attorney General Holder said Friday, noting that the newly-wedded gay couples “should not be asked to endure uncertainty regarding their status” as the legal challenges unfold.

There should have been no marriage licenses granted until the legal process was complete - to the highest court available.

:: The federal government will recognize marriages performed in Utah ::

A non-thing, yes? IIRC, even 2A hasn’t been ruled “distributed” yet.
Until the SCOTUS provides the proper ruling, this means nothing. Unless, of course, someone believes that the federal government is the Ober-government than can run the States they way they see fit?
Bueller?

This is the fascism that Obama and the left absolutely love. It matters not what the consent of the governed say, it is what WE say that only matters.

The Obama People are ANTI-LAW; How more blatant against our laws can you be? Holder needs to be impeached A.S.A.P!

Like Rush just said - this is Stalinist.

The “law” is whatever Obama and his MarxoFascist Regime says it is.

They will ignore laws, court rulings, state legislatures, state governors and the sovereign citizens of any state to impose it’s will.

Sadly, Americans are comfortable with tyrannical Fascism and we have been conquered from within.

The photos of gun owners in CT lining up to register their guns told the tale.

OK, so you recognize as you please, Mr. Head of Just-is department!
Well we the people do not recognize a “president” who fails to meet our constitutions’ requirement for office.

This doesn't even make sense. How can fedgov recognize what doesn't exist? There is no federal homosexual marriage law. What does this mean as far as taxes and benefits...and if the law is permanently struck down, what then?

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise. Thanks.

They are not marriages whether or not the feral government recognizes them.

States that make marijuana legal do so in violation of fedgov law. No consequences.

States that make homo marriage illegal do so based on their own sovereignty since they issue the marriage licenses. The fedgov steps in and says they can’t do that.

A revolt is needed.

I'm 100% in favor of legalizing marijuana. And I am 100% in agreement with you.

The fact that Holder is still in that position, and not wearing an orange jumpsuit in Leavenworth is maddening.

prima facie evidence that the stay should have been granted. perhaps the next state will be able to leverage this.

This is the major reason conservatives opposed Liz Cheney, she was promoting federal aggression in recognizing gay marriage and the homosexual agenda.

Liz Cheney was early in her support for gay marriage and the homosexual agenda, including at the federal level and for the military. She wanted DADT ended and rejoiced when it was, she was against DOMA, is against a constitutional amendment to save marriage, and supports gay marriage, and supports the State department move to the gay agenda and support of “married” gays in immigration and employment.

It appears as though Eric the Holder is trying to obtain mini-messiah status. The ***hole is creating his own laws now. The next three years just can’t go by fast enough for me. I’m tired of this corrupt police state. This is bull****. It’s time to throw the Chicago gangstas out!
