  •  But this does show how vile the SCOTUS stay is (3+ / 0-)

    The Utah law is unconstitutional.  Everyone knows it.  But rather than let the marriages continue (and be federally recognized even as Utah refused to), while SCOTUS takes it's sweet time admitting reality, they issue a stay.

    Why?  The unconstitutional law will be overturned.  All SCOTUS has done is deny legal rights to everyone who could have been married in the meantime.  Disgusting.

      either Kennedy says it is, or someone liberal replaces him or one of the other conservative justices.  And if it were held to be constitutional, then all these marriages will be nullified.
