Attorneys Request California Same-Sex Marriage Stay to Court of Appeal

This is the final "hail Mary" (pun intended) for those who think the freedom to marry whom you please is too great a responsibility for GLBT people:

Attorneys with Liberty Counsel filed a petition with the California Court of Appeal today requesting a stay on issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

“I think it’s necessary and prudent to stay this decision to allow the Legislature to address the mess the Supreme Court made,” said Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, who argued the case.

“Absent a stay, we’re going to have legal chaos.”

Founded in 1989, Liberty Counsel is a Virginia-based nonprofit education and litigation organization to advance conservative religious beliefs.

This online newpaper is following the trend of today and you can blog your opinions there. I think one such reader summed things up rather well:

I am very proud to be gay and getting married. To all those waiting for the 17th, congratulations and I hope you live long and happy lives!
