Some clerks deny Wisconsin gay couples licenses

MILWAUKEE — Gay couples seeking marriage licenses were turned away in some Wisconsin counties Monday, with clerks waiting for guidance from the courts or state government before accepting applications.

Hundreds of couples married over the weekend in Milwaukee and Madison after a federal judge declared Wisconsin's ban on gay marriages unconstitutional. County clerks in the state's two largest cities extended office hours to allow couples to take advantage of what most believe will be a narrow window before the judge's decision is put on hold.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb has scheduled a 1 p.m. hearing on Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's request for an emergency stay to keep more licenses from being issued. Van Hollen also has appealed Crabb's decision to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and asked it for a stay.

Hey 3rdWorld - A lifestyle choice that results in devastating health consequences is one thing about the GBTLQ lifestyle that is bad for America. Gay men 100 times more likely to be diagnosed with AIDS and 120 times more likely to be treated for rectal cancer than straight men. You can look up the data on other STD's for yourself.

And just like clockwork...the misinformed, obsessed troll.

Again, pathetick...you think about gay sex more than any ten gay men I could name combined.

Have you considered seeking professional help for your obvious issues? Is such a thing available near your bunker?

FreeSpiritMan and "Popsmith,"

Please do not refer to "Popsmith" as "pop." As I post as "populist" and am often referred to as "Pop," I do not want any confusion--especially since Popsmith seems to have a giant pole up his a$$.

Popsmith,

Let's stop persecuting minorities.

Hey djigoo - Surfergoo, dude, I know you really, really, really, don't like hearing the truth about the GBLTQ lifestyle and hope your remarks will lead to silence, but that ain' t gonna happen. Tell me, surfergoo, what part of those devastating statistics are "misinformed"? Crickets got your tongue, surfergoo?
.
Hey NoUserName - None that I know of.
.
Hey Populist - Did you mean to refer to your buddy djigoo with that "giant pole up his a$$" remark? Wouldn't it be more appropriate for a gay guy like surfergoo? Just saying......
.

"Let's stop persecuting minorities." Who's persecuting minorities?

Simple, pathetick.

Cite sources for your insane blatherings.

And $hit from NARTH or WND doesn't count.

Okay...Go.

Hey djigoo - Ever heard of the Centers for Disease Control? Just stuck that one up your love canal, didn't I, surfergoo. You really make this soooooo easy. BTW, are you a card carrying member of NAMBLA?
