Skip to comments.Boulder County Clerk to Begin Issuing Same Sex Marriage Licenses [Colorado!]
Posted on 06/25/2014 5:51:14 PM PDT by BurningOak
Boulder County, Colo. In response to the historic ruling in the 10th Circuit Court today, Boulder County Clerk and Recorder Hillary Hall will begin issuing same sex marriage licenses immediately, beginning today, June 25, 2014 in our Boulder office at 1750 33rd Street, and in our Lafayette and Longmont offices starting Friday, June 27, 2014.
Because 10th Circuit decisions are binding in the State of Colorado, the precedent established by Kitchen v. Herbert is applicable to the same-sex marriage ban contained in the Colorado Constitution. The Tenth Circuit found that those who wish to marry a person of the same sex are entitled to exercise the same fundamental right as is recognized for persons who wish to marry a person of the opposite sex.
Clerk Hall intends to uphold the fundamental right to marriage now recognized by 10th Circuit by issuing marriage licenses to any person who wishes to marry. Couples across Colorado have been waiting a long time to have their right to marry the person they love recognized, stated Boulder County Clerk Hillary Hall. I want to act immediately to let them carry out that wish.
Marriage licenses will be issued at the Boulder County Clerk and Recorders office in Boulder today until 4:30 p.m. and will resume tomorrow at 8 a.m.

Basically a Colorado government clerk is using the judicial activism in Utah to start issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples. This is not even tyranny by judges, its tyranny by petty country bureaucrats. It seems that the walls are collapsing and the barbarians are pillaging the city.
Appropriate that it should come here. The current push for same sex marriage started with Kennedy's Romer decision in 1996. Our enemies think 20 years ahead.
soon they’ll be taking your kids to gay scouts by force to assimilate into the new libtard hive borg. When will this end?
Marriage became superficial long before the gays stepped up with their weirdo show.
What if they are too stoned and accidently marry a horse?
There is no such thing as homosexual marriage - period.
There can be unions between two people (not related of course), never marriage.
(somehow related two concreting adults is ewwww to horrible to think about)
A massive and unethical overreach of power and misunderstanding of a judicial decision.
True but still sad.
Just saying... there is a lot to mend. Gays are the rotten chokecherry on top.
***What if they are too stoned and accidentally marry a horse?***
It will never work. When the “preacher” asks the horse, “Horse, do you take this man for your lawful wedded husband?”
The horse will say “Neigh!”
Nobody cares. Just as long as bread and circuses (and, of course, dope) are readily available, they're perfectly happy.
Isn’t that fabulosssssp!
Is that a man on the left?
With 51 new gender options, who can keep track any more?
