Utah chill: SCOTUS puts basic rights, freedoms, protections on (temporary) ice

by Jeremy Hooper

I feel bad for the loving couples who expected to wed but now must wait:

Breaking: High court puts same-sex marriage on hold in Utah [CNN]

Then again, delayed inevitability is pretty much the subtitle of our movement. Waiting is as common to us as is fear-mongering, fake victims, and groups that openly flout our nation's crucial church and state separations.

But as with all of these fights, we will ultimately prevail. I expect groups like NOM to applaud this SCOTUS move, but any attempt to conflate "delay" with "denial" will only go so far (read: nowhere).
