    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has issued an order temporarily blocking gay marriage in Kansas.
    Sotomayor’s brief order Monday puts on hold indefinitely a lower-court order clearing the way for same-sex couples to marry despite a ban in Kansas on gay marriage.
    The lower-court order was set to take effect at 5 p.m. Central time Tuesday. Sotomayor acted at the request of Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.
    But Sotomayor also directed the American Civil Liberties Union to file a response to Schmidt’s request by 4 p.m. Central time Tuesday.

    Sotomayor is a phony--she is asking the leading gay law organization to comment on this.

    One problem is that the Supreme Court has never won an election on this issue and they cannot refuse people the right to marry one or many people of the same-sex or different sex.

    One thing that can be done is to lower taxes and abolish the marriage benefit.

    Somewhat of a surprise ruling either way.
