In New Legal Filings, Attorneys Call for Immediate Start of Same-Sex Marriages in Mississippi

Campaign for Southern Equality

WASHINGTON - Attorneys in Campaign for Southern Equality v. Bryant, the lawsuit that struck down Mississippi’s ban on same-sex marriage, filed a motion on Friday afternoon with the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals seeking to enforce the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling recognizing marriage equality. While some same-sex couples have already married today in Mississippi, the state’s attorney general has issued instructions that clerks cannot issues licenses until the stay is lifted.

The Supreme Court did it's work so the knuckle-draggers are left with their usual ridiculous deceptions and obscurantisms. The High Court ruling annuls the ban imposed by the appeals court. Politics necessitates breast beating and foot thumping before running from the defeat from which some kind of rump republican southern strategy will emerge.
