One day after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to review five other appeals, the 9th Circuit released its unanimous ruling concerning the same-sex marriage bans in Idaho and Nevada. There are several wonderful passages, and more than one amusing footnote from the judges.
The best one is footnote 12, concerning the closing arguments from the Governor of Idaho:
He also states, in conclusory fashion, that allowing same-sex marriage will lead opposite-sex couples to abuse alcohol and drugs, engage in extramarital affairs, take on demanding work schedules, and participate in time-consuming hobbies. We seriously doubt that allowing committed same-sex couples to settle down in legally recognized marriages will drive opposite-sex couples to sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll.
