Gay marriage ban in Missouri kinda, sorta ruled unconstitutional.

Ten couples who got married in other states sued the state of Missouri insisting that Missouri should recognize their marriages.  Yesterday a circuit judge ruled that the state must recognize those marriages.

Lindsey Graham: Rubio not ready to be President, but I am.

Perpetual fear-monger Lindsey Graham, the Republican Senator from South Carolina, doesn’t think Marco Rubio is ready to run for President.  However, Graham offers up an alternative: himself.

Scalia and Texas Supreme Court Justice make scary quotes about religion and government.

I wonder when Kayla Moore will be asking a couple of Justices to recuse themselves from any decisions involving religious liberty.  The first is Texas Supreme Court Justice John Devine, who thinks the church has gone to sleep and let progressives into positions of power, which is not what the Founding Fathers would’ve wanted: “How do [Read More…]
