US Government will recognize Utah’s same sex marriages

Utah Same Sex MarriagesOn Wednesday this week Utah Gov. Gary Herbert’s office announced the state will not recognize same-sex marriages performed in Utah since last month.  In possibly the best F.U. I’ve seen in recent memory, today the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the United States federal government WILL recognize those marriages.

“I am confirming today that, for purposes of federal law, these marriages will be recognized as lawful and considered eligible for all relevant federal benefits on the same terms as other same-sex marriages,” U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Think elections don’t matter? I doubt a President Romney administration would have supported those LGBT couples.

Check Governor Herbert – now it is your turn and historians are recording your every move.
