Aren’t you just so tired of seeing gigantic perfect diamonds and shimmering bands of platinum on the left ring fingers of all your engaged friends? No? Can you pretend to be over it for the sake of this post? Great, thanks.
Break out the rainbow celebration chaps: a Federal Judge has ruled that Texas's voter-driven gay marriage ban is unconstitutional. Yee-haw!
Right before Caleb and Candra Pence's outdoor Kansas wedding was set to begin, an ominous wall cloud formed on the horizon. During the ceremony, a tornado snaked toward the ground.

ProtectMarriage, the group backing California's Proposition 8 limiting marriage to a man and a woman, has asked a district court to overturn Judge Vaughn Walker's ruling against the law.
Funny how these things work. You may recall that the Republican-controlled House conveniently found $500,000 marked "uphold a law that discriminates against gay people" despite President Obama's declining to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court. That money went to a contact for a law firm, much to Democrats'…
