The Gay Thing: Oklahoma Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment Deemed Unconstitutional

Oklahoma--a redder state than even Utah--has become the latest state to have their state constitutional amendment declared un-Constitutional. Which is great. Unfortunately, actual marriages are on hold pending appeal. On one hand, having a stay in place sucks, delaying equality just that much longer. On the other, it prevents the "limbo" period Utah married couples are feeling, having had a stay put in place after a period of legality.

The potential good news is that both Oklahoma and Utah are in the 10th Circuit, which could mean a combined case, which could get this thing wrapped up a little quicker. At least I hope so. In any event, marriage equality rocks on!
