    They're both part of a pending case waiting for a ruling. The court is just going really slow on it for some reason.
    Yup. It's a signature. Go away if you're expecting something interesting here.

    There's no excuse for this slowness - at all. Even if just IMHO, too.

    In the case of Ohio, its a combination of overwhelmingly GOP-controlled state legislatures and a Cincinnati based court of appeals.

    WARNING: This is a bump....
    WARNING 2: This is bad news.

    Appeals court upholds bans on same-sex marriage for first time

    And so..... Ohio and Michigan are amongst 4 states that continue to be bigoted and disrespectful to the LGBTQ community as usual...

    This is what abuse of certain religious ideologies by people who should know better than that don't work anymore has gotten us in the 21st Century, even if just IMHO. And it MAKES ME SICK.

    Alright. Gay Marriage is back before the court today.

    Here is a USA Today article on the relevant facts going into the proceedings today at the Supreme Court.

    Perhaps the most relevant parts:

    Q. What is the court considering?

    A: Two questions: Does the 14th Amendment require states to license same-sex marriages? And does it require them to recognize those marriages performed in other states?

    Q: Who is bringing the challenge?

    A: There are 32 plaintiffs — couples, widows, even a 2-year-old child — whose six separate lawsuits against same-sex marriage bans in Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee and Kentucky were denied in November at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit.

    Q: When will written transcripts, audio transcripts or video feeds be released?

    A: The first written and audio transcripts will be available on the court's website at about 12:30 p.m. The full transcripts and audio should be up around 2 p.m. The court does not allow cameras, so there will not be any video available.

    Q: What happens after a decision is rendered?

    A: Any ruling for gay challengers would make same-sex marriage legal nationwide, adding 13 states to the 37 that already permit it. Two more numbers would rise — the number of gay marriages, and the number of challenges from opponents claiming religious objections.
    A ruling in favor of the four Midwestern states could lead some of the 22 states in which federal courts struck down gay marriage bans to seek their reinstatement. Eleven states that legalized it legislatively and four where state courts made the call would not be immediately affected.
    And from CNN, here are some updates from the court.

    One protester had to be dragged from the courtroom.
