Another marriage ban falls, in Oregon

A federal judge has struck down Oregon's ban on same-sex marriage. A federal appeals court refused to stay the ruling. In Oregon, the state declined to defend the law because, as in Arkansas, it's demonstrably a denial of equal rights and due process under the U.S. Constitution to discriminate against people on account of sexual orientation.

In Arkansas, of course, the majority of the legislature doesn't recognize the U.S. Constitution except when it comes to guns.
