Marriage News Watch: January 5, 2015

Marriage is starting this week in Florida. So why are our opponents saying it's not? We'll take a look at what's really going on, and how they're still trying to stop the weddings. Also this week: oral argument in Louisiana could get pretty heated. Another Supreme Court conference. And some surprising polling.

I wrote on the "confusion" in Florida a couple of days ago. A side note on the "no more courthouse weddings" contingent: Isn't it interesting how bigots resort to tantrums at the first opportunity?

And another side note: Marriages began in Luxembourg on January 1. And no big fuss.

An a footnote: This ad is running in Texas this week:

It's members of the Fort Worth police department on their gay colleague's right to marry.
