10th Circuit judges appear to be 2-1 in favor of peace, love, equality, progress, fairness, history...

by Jeremy Hooper

According to most reports on today's 10th Circuit hearing, including this one from Chris Geidner, two of the three judges hearing the appeal on Utah's same-sex marriage ban are poised to side with the lower court and strike the damn thing down:

DENVER — The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals heard more than an hour of arguments Thursday morning over the question of same-sex couples’ marriages — with the three judges hearing the case being split on several key questions needed to be resolved but with the court leaning toward striking the ban.

Most reports also indicate that it could be months before we hear anything. Which just gives us more time to convince the seemingly less inclined judge to brush up on the notion of protection.

*AUDIO: Full hour of arguments here.
