and the regression continues…

Indiana lawmakers have revamped a 1997 law that makes furnishing false information on a marriage license a class D felony. Beginning July 1, 2014, a same-sex couple applying for a marriage license in the state of Indiana will be guilty of a Level 6 felony, punishable by 18 months in prison and a $10,000 fine. The new law also makes it a Class B Misdemeanor for a clergyman, judge, mayor, city clerk or town clerk-treasurer to perform a same-sex marriage, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.  Any clerk who issues a license to a same-sex couple would also be guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor.

Because Indiana marriage license forms have a space for “male applicant” and “female applicant”, any same-sex couple filling out the form would automatically violate the law. The harsh penalties Indiana lawmakers have approved make it difficult for protest movements like the Campaign for Southern Equality’s “We Do” Campaign, which encourages same-sex couples to apply for marriage licenses as a protest in states that prohibit same-sex marriages.

“Indiana wants me, Lord I can’t go back there…”

and while we’re on the subject of regression, you know you can always count on Texas and Fox News to keep things moving.

In case you want another reason to hate Fox News, just look at what Erick Erickson tweeted after the passing of the Texas abortion bill.

Signal boost and let him know that this behavior is not welcome and not tolerated.  — from Daily Thoughts

  1. What if there were two names on one of the applicant lines and none on the other? Maybe add an “s” to the word “applicant” for good measure?

  2. I hear Iceland is an interesting place.

    That hanger comment is vile. What an ass. Not that I am surprised.

  3. Thanks for that last clip, Coop. I had meant to watch it the other day and forgot. She made terrific points.
