Wisconsin Marriage Amendment struck down by federal judge

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb in Madison Friday overturned Wisconsin's gay marriage ban, striking down an amendment to the state constitution approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2006.

Crabb did not stay her ruling but also did not immediately issue an order blocking the enforcement of the order, leaving it for the moment unclear whether couples could immediately marry in the courthouses of Wisconsin.

Instead, Crabb asked the gay couples who had sued over the ban to describe by June 16 exactly what they wanted the judge to block with respect to the enforcement of the law. She said she would then address whether to stay her decision while the matter is on appeal.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, a Republican, said that "current law remains in force" in Wisconsin and he would appeal the decision.

  1. yep - here comes the gay mafia, they're not stopping until they completely destroy marriage

    1. My only answer as to why so much of it is driven by women who AREN'T interested in marriage is because they're women who AREN'T interested in marriage. They want it destroyed and know how to destroy it. Enter Federal Judges who have been trained to turn the 1787 Constitution into trial law, like in a word game. And people wonder why eminent domain is abused, actual privacy, in our writings, is non-existent, and criminal lawyers dominate the disbursement of judgement.

  2. What is up with waiving the 5 day waiting period and paper work?

  3. It is important to note that Crabb's decision to strike down Wisconsin's amendment was anticipated by all parties.

    More important is Crabb's slow-walk of an order staying her decision, despite the emergency filing by Van Hollen. This is to allow several hundred gay 'marriages' to occur (as they have)--thus creating a group of quasi-illegal 'married' couples who will be paraded around as 'harmed' by a contrary decision from the 7th Circuit or SCOTUS.

    It's the worst sort of demagoguery--using these people as fodder for a PR campaign.

  4. It's no coincidence that Federal Judges all over the country are doing this at once. Of course, they do nothing for the conservationist who built a pond on the stream that rushes through his backyard. If asked by a foreigner what three great things are about my country, the legal system isn't one of them. Uh, not even in a list of 50. It's dysfunctional, slow, costly, and opposed to the actual 1787 Constitution. There are rights recognized in the 1787 Constitution that have been trashed while replaced with contemporary trash.
