Did you ever heard of a push-back such as

the one made by the Oklahoma government's

attorney?

WHOSE BURDEN IS IT? A judge on the Tenth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel drilled down hard Thursday, insisting an attorney defending Oklahoma’s ban on same-sex couples marrying explain how letting same-sex couples marry harms the government’s interest in creating stable families and cared for children. The case was Bishop v. Smith, the second of two cases to be argued this month before the federal appeals court in Denver. The attorney was James Campbell with the Alliance Defending Freedom. Campbell said it’s not the government’s burden to show what harm same-sex marriages could cause. But the judge persisted, and Campbell said that, while “no one knows the long-term effects,” there are “real world consequences,” “and it is plaintiffs’ burden to show that none of those consequences will be adverse.” Evan Wolfson, head of the national Freedom to Marry group, notes that, “even under basic review, the government has to have a sufficient reason for discriminating.” “And numerous court rulings, including the Supreme Court’s decision in Windsor — as well as all three marriage trials, first in Hawaii, then in California, and a few weeks ago in Michigan — have made clear there is none.” - See more at: http://www.keennewsservice.com/2014/04/18/speed-read-real-world-unknown/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+KeenNewsService+%28Keen+News+Service%29#sthash.RTCDiKxZ.dpuf
