North Dakota now only state without legal challenge to discriminatory marriage laws

by Jeremy Hooper

If I may have a second of your time, press people at all anti-equality organizations, an urgent matter has just come up. It involves that press release template that I'm assuming you all have. You know, the one that will allow your organization to be quick to "condemn" or "decry" the future [insert state] ruling that brings marriage equality to each of our states? The one where you just change a few words around in order to work a preconceived monologue that decries any and all "activist judges" before you learn the first thing about them or even read their rulings? You surely know the one I'm talking about, right? I'd think it must be at the tip top of all of your "recent history" folders.

Yeah, well—it needs updating. For the "state" field, North Dakota is now the only one you can safely (for now) keep out of the data pool:

Thank you for your time and prompt accommodation.

Sincerely,
