USA, Pennsylvania: Both Sides Eagerly Await Marriage Equality Ruling

Written by scott on September 12th, 2013

Pennsylvania mapA ruling in the case of the state against Montgomery County could come down any day.

Philly.com reports:

A little past noon every day, Mike McMonagle checks the Commonwealth Court website, hoping for a ruling on same-sex marriage. It has been a week since oral arguments in the Montgomery County case, when President Judge Dan Pellegrini promised, “I will issue a decision as soon as I can.” Pellegrini didn’t give a timetable for a ruling, and his chambers said Wednesday that he had no plans to. But with each passing day, McMonagle gets a little more worried. “I would say, the longer the delay, the more worried our side should be. In our view,” he said, “it’s a very simple case to make.” McMonagle opposes same-sex marriage and led a protest on the courthouse steps after the Sept. 4 hearing in Harrisburg.

I would say marriage equality supporters have an even similar case to make. It’s equality, stupid.

    The time has come for the lgbt community to gain first class citizenship rather than be the whipping boy for every bigot. Is is going to take another stonewall to bring some sense into the small selfish bigots minds? If gays begin to migrate to states that have legalized marriage both sides suffer. The state loses valuable workers and taxpayers and the gays must leave their old lives behind seeking to start over. Not to mention the federal dollars that state would lose when the population drops in the bigoted states.
