Marriage News Watch, January 19, 2015

Florida has finally legalized driving while gay. Bills to discriminate against gay couples are rapidly multiplying in Texas. And multiple states are still wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to reverse marriage equality.

"Driving while gay." I like that.

Here's more on that "don't do business with gays" law from Virginia -- introduced, of course, by Bob Marshall, one of the nuttiest of the wingnuts.

I've been predicting these sorts of responses for a while, and Baume is right: they're going to be annoying until they're overturned in court, and I think they ultimately will be -- unless the Roberts court decides to use the opportunity to gut the Civil Rights Act, which is not outside the realm of possibility. In that case -- what do you have to do to establish refugee status in Canada?
