June Trial PA Gay Marriage
US District Judge, John E. Jones, set June 2014 as the date for a trial challenging the ban on same sex marriage in Pennsylvania. That will be one year since SCOTUS made the historic ruling on same sex marriage and that means one more year for LGBT couples in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to be denied the same equal rights that LGBT couples in surrounding states like New York and New Jersey receive.
Jones said he would set a specific date and a timetable for pretrial discovery and depositions soon. He rejected as unnecessary a defense request to delay the trial until August.
The Men of Purdue
The only thing I know about Purdue University is that my mom almost went there. She opted for a college in New Jersey instead. In the 1950’s it wasn’t as common as it is now for a woman to go to college and her mom and dad wanted her to be a secretary and get married. She wanted to be a psychologist, so she settled for her second choice.
In any event, here’s a link that will lead you to the men of Purdue’s gymnastics team, with photos and a video. It’s very interesting to see them twist and turn and make it look so simple. There’s also more info about LGBT issues here, too.
The Purdue University Senate has approved a resolution opposing Indiana’s proposed constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.
I posted about the Republican Mayor of Indianapolis opposing this last week.
