Giving Obergefell the “Roe-Treatment”

Heard in last few days:

1. Texas judge who disagrees with Obergefell makes all marriage applicants sign form acknowledging that he’s opposed to it.  More on this here.

2. Woman in Texas who told the Executive Director of the organization at which she worked that she was getting married to a woman. Came back from honeymoon and was fired.

3. Two guys in Florida who married where told by a pharmacist they had patronized for many years that they couldn’t get their medications from his business any longer because of his religious opposition to same-sex marriage.

The right wing is quite clear that they’re going to treat Obergefell like Roe v. Wade – not real law. These three examples above illustrate the ways in which marriage rights for same-sex couples are getting “Roe-d”.
