A federal judge struck down Wisconsins ban on same-sex marriage on Friday, ruling it unconstitutional.
It wasnt clear whether U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb's 88-page ruling cleared the way for same-sex marriages to begin immediately. But the ruling makes Wisconsin the 27th state where same-sex couples can marry under law or where a judge has ruled they ought to be allowed to wed. [ ]
The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit in February on behalf of four gay couples, then later expanded to eight, challenging Wisconsins constitutional ban on gay marriage. Messages left with ACLUs attorneys were not immediately returned Friday.

Madness. Pure madness. But nobody dares to say it.
I really, really, really have a hard time believing I’m reading this crap again.
The men who wrote the Constitution would be astonished and aghast at the absurd nonsense attributed to them.
Why should we tolerate it?
Impeach these judges. A Free Society has a right to make it’s own rules.
This is the definition of freedom. These judges are taking that away.
Rogue judiciary. If Congress did its job, these judges would all be impeached and removed. All the way up to SCOTUS, if that’s what it took.
I think hanging would be a better, more just, and more effective deterrent than mere impeachment.
Do you think these men were worried about the rights of the Transgendered to marry the farm animal of their choice?
Oh, Boy. The freaks in Madistan will be taking to the streets tonight.
Well, I was trying to exercise restraint...
But then, my ancestors in the American Revolution did things like hanging Tory’s from Oak trees for just being brigands, so...
Judges have no power to impose laws, period
She actually has the gall to say that the 14th amendment “doesn’t have an asterisk excluding homosexuals from its guarantee of Equal Protection.” (i’m paraphrasing)
This is the same argument my normally-conservative sister made a while back. She told me that if we wanted the 14th amendment to say “except for marriage law” and “except for homos,” then we “haters” should amend it to explicitly say so.
Ridiculous. The authors of that amendment couldn’t have imagined that our culture would fall so far to where this is seriously being argued.
We rail about obama and congress all the time but evil is being thrust upon us every day by the courts. It’s the Federal courts and the warped deviants sitting on their benches who are really most responsible for advancing the agenda of evil that’s fallen upon us these days. I’m amazed nobody’s gone after any of these guys.
We’re all gay now
State courts too. Massachusetts supreme court was the first to pull this stunt, IIRC. They got away with it.
And the retort is, no homo is being denied equal protection.
He or She has every right to marry the person of the opposite sex of their choice.
Now for Cousin It....we gotta walk away from that one. May not have an opposite...they can always do a civil union contract
Woe to Wisconsin. . . . God will not be mocked.
>> The Constitution says NOTHING about marriage.
That’s not a universally accepted position.
By virtue of references to spouses of fallen soldiers, and subsequent compensation made to them by the govt, marriage is considered, to some degree, a construction of founding law, and by inference something that deserves constitutional protection.
no, woe to her. wisconsin citizens overwhelmingly voted to amend its constitution to forbid gay marriage.
