Another win for true marriage.
Colorado’s Supreme Court ordered Boulder County to stop issuing marriage licenses to gay couples while an appeal from the state attorney general is heard.
The court ruled Tuesday in response to an appeal from Republican Attorney General John Suthers, who has been trying for several weeks to get Boulder to stop issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. The court will hear the appeal, and it is ordering Boulder to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in the meantime.
The same court previously ruled in Suthers’ favor in ordering Denver to quit issuing licenses, but that ruling didn’t apply to Boulder.
The order (.pdf) states:
IT IS ORDERED that Colorado Court of Appeals Case Number 2014 CA 1368, State Of Colorado v. Hillary Hall, in her official capacity as Boulder County Clerk and Recorder, shall be transferred forthwith from the Colorado Court of Appeals to this Court Pursuant to C.A.R. 50(b), and the record on appeal shall be filed with the Colorado Supreme Court on or before October 20, 2014.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Respondent Hillary Hall, in her official capacity as of Boulder County Clerk and Recorder is hereby stayed under C.A.R. 8 from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples pending resolution of this appeal.
Thanks be to God….and please continue prayers for the protection of true marriage.
