Gay couple challenges Wyoming’s marriage law



Published: Tue, August 24, 2010 @ 2:42 p.m.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A gay couple has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the Wyoming law that defines marriage as existing only between a man and a woman.

David Shupe-Roderick and Ryan W. Dupree of Cheyenne say the Laramie County Clerk’s Office has refused to issue them a marriage license. They’re asking U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson to stop the state from enforcing any laws that block gays and lesbians from access to civil marriage.

Wyoming Attorney General Bruce Salzburg declined comment Tuesday, saying he hadn’t reviewed the lawsuit yet.

Shupe-Roderick and Dupree are acting as their own attorneys in the case.

They need a class of their own . Like perhaps an odd couple certificate of union . Marriage is what difines a bond for life between a man and a woman .

pileated,

polygamy is a marriage issue, as is male/male, female/female. It is how we define marriage. What about bisexuals? Can they marry a man and a woman? Where do we stop?

There are no laws against bigamy for the gay community . The hetero side sez you would be havin too much fun with two wives . Sorry, you aren't allowed to . Some much for equal footing,eh ?

The gay issue in the past was settled by Islam . Today western politically correct values have been exported and weak minds have locked onto the gay idea . Here in the states we have been tolerant of the gays but now they want us to honor them with marriage . What a joke !
