Pennsylvania Marriage Equality Appeal Knocked Down By Alito

Written by scott on July 10th, 2014

Pennsylvania mapA county clerk who tried to appeal the Pennsylvania marriage equality decision all the way to the US Supreme Court was turned away – and by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, no less.

Towleroad.com reports:

Theresa Santai-Gaffney, the Schuykill County, Pennsylvania Clerk who has been waging a one-woman crusade against the state’s legalization of gay marriage, petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court this week to intervene, halt the state’s gay marriages and defend the state’s ban in an appeal since the governor has refused… Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., denied without comment a Pennsylvania county clerk’s plea to stop such marriages in that state. That appears to remove the last potential legal barrier to Pennsylvania becoming the nineteenth state in which same-sex marriages are permitted.

Marriage equality is here to stay in Pennsylvania. Now Ms. Santai-Gaffney can either get in line or get out of the way.

    While they’re at it, why not remove Ms. Santai-Gaffney’s right to marry??? A taste of her own medicine would be just perfect !!!! Remove her right to choose and to enjoy the same as others would only be ‘justice served’ !!!!
