The latest Domino falls

District Court Judge C. Scott Crabtree on Wednesday ruled the 2006 voter-approved ban violates the [Colorado] state and federal constitutions. He immediately put his ruling on hold pending an appeal.
Crabtree is the 16th judge to void a state's gay marriage ban since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that the federal government has to recognize gay marriages in the states.  Link
That makes a total of 19 states in which same-sex marriage is totally legal, and another 9 where courts have found marriage bans unconstitutional but appeals are still pending. If my math is right, that's more than half of the states.

Give it up anti-equality folk. It's over. Same-sex marriage has won. Spare us all a lot of time and money and just quit trying to hurt and oppress people.

You can't stop progress.
