Court Rejects Bid To Appeal Pennsylvania's Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

Pennsylvania gays got some great news on the Fourth of July!  A federal appeals court rejected a request to appeal the ruling striking down Pennsylvania's same-sex marriage ban!

CBS Philly reports

A federal appeals court has rejected a county official’s bid to appeal a ruling that overturned Pennsylvania’s gay marriage ban.

The Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday denied Schuylkill County Orphans Court Clerk Theresa Santai-Gaffney’s request to intervene in the case.

She said she plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III struck down the marriage ban on May 20. Pennsylvania was the last northeastern state to ban same-sex marriage.

Congrats, Pennsylvanians!

loose is clothing that fits big   lose is to get rid of on "o"  as in "lose the o"  and become that word 

very happy for the gay community   as they have the same rights and freedoms to marry

this isnt about religion    its about the basic right ...equal rights to marry the person of your choice

reguardless of gender or race

religion should get out of politics or be taxed 

She needs to loose her job.  If she feels that she cannot do her job, its time to start letting them go.   By Falicia !!!

She is pure evil and sadly issues marriage licenses in Schuylkill County. Conflict of interest? I believe so. The courts need to remove her from office then she can persue her personal agenda.

I sure wish people would take more care with their headlines ... it should read:
