Indiana's Ban On Gay Marriage Ruled Unconstitutional

A federal judge struck down Indiana's ban on same-sex marriage Wednesday, saying it's unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Richard Young said the state's ban violates the U.S. Constitution's equal-protection clause in a mixed ruling involving lawsuits from several gay couples.

The Indianapolis Star reports Young did not immediately issue a stay on the ruling, allowing couples to marry immediately.

According to the AP, the Indiana attorney general's office plans to appeal the decision. The ruling could be stayed under appeal.

The AP reports:

Federal courts across the country have struck down gay marriage bans recently, but many of those rulings are on hold pending appeal. Attorneys on both sides of the issue expect the matter to eventually land before the U.S. Supreme Court.

It also wasn't immediately clear what impact Wednesday's ruling might have on a faltering movement to add a gay marriage ban into the Indiana Constitution.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals also ruled on gay marriage Wednesday, saying that Utah cannot ban same-sex marriages.

I agree with the comments in the previous thread about Jake's recent looks. They are just not appealing to me on any level. I find it odd that an actor wants to look as bad as he can. Jake has clearly given up on trying to be a tent pole kind of actor, and is concentrating on good roles, which I think is a good thing. But it doesn't mean he has to go around looking one step removed from being a hobo. It still strikes me as a big finger to the fans he probably thinks let him down when it came to movies like POP.

Being appealing is part of your job when you're an actor, it has nothing to do with being our "boyfriend".

Agree, absolutely. I think it also extends even further than this. Criticizing the declining appearance of Jake over the last couple of years is about more than aesthetics.

How you look and show up dressed for certain events is a reflection of you and how you feel about yourself. It's also a reflection of how you've been raised.

It's like showing up for a church wedding in flip flops and ripped jeans. It's not showing respect for your friends/family whose wedding it is. It's not showing respect for the others who are present. And I'm not saying that we don't jog in our rattiest T shirt or we can't hang around in our comfy sweats. But there is a time and a place for everything. Kind of like FauxChlo and her twitter crassness.

And I think some people try to be 'hip', try to be 'individual'. Oh, that's just the way he/she is. They don't give a lick. That's just him/her. They're cool. They're real.

lol. No. When you reach a certain age, it's just being an ass.

People know when they're being thumbed down at. They know when you don't care about them. And you know what? Eventually, they will just say "screw it" and go look somewhere else because people will take just so much. No one is irreplaceable.

Or, given the middle finger to.

No one is irreplaceable.

Jake must think his Twitter presence, bought and paid for by WME, is enough to sustain him. Along with the faux fandom they have created of squealing posters talking incessantly about how hot he is.

I see you have a pic of Jared with his scarf that has no purpose. *wink* Very nice.

Methodical Muser said...

Hey, PG. Is Jared's scarf what might be called, a splash of panache?

prairiegirl said...

his scarf that has no purpose

LOL!!! Heyyy!!! Jared is all about his scarves that serve no purpose. Wait - they do serve a purpose. They adorn him.

: )

I also think Jensen loves his scarves.

True. I'm sure scarves do come in handy whenever the guys forget to pack their favorite handcuffs. :-)

Austin tweeted today about the passing of Eli Wallach and I didn't recognize the name but when I saw his picture, I was like 'oh my gosh, that's the man from the Kate Winslet movie'.

And he was in The Holiday. I loved him in that movie.

Wow huge decision from the 10th circuit Appeals Court. Overturns approx 10 state votes on marriage ban. This will def head to the Supreme Court. Not sure when the Court will hear this case but this soon could all be over and every Gay couple can be married in all 50 states. This is def a huge time in history today.
