From Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia and Mississippi, gay couples traveled to this quaint Panhandle city on Tuesday, eager to take part in a historic moment: the arrival of same-sex marriage in the Deep South."We came because it felt like home," said Virginia Jeffries, 30, of Foley, Ala. "And because if we waited for Alabama, we'd be waiting forever."
"I have to confess, when I was first approached about coming here, I thought no way," said the Rev. Dr. Jim Merritt, who moved to Pensacola several months ago to become the senior pastor of Holy Cross Metropolitan Community Church. He married his partner of 20 years on Tuesday in one of many same-sex weddings performed at the church.
A Tuesday regular at the diner, Earl Barrett, 72, and his two breakfast companions voted in favor of Florida's gay marriage ban in 2008. Look up the definition of marriage in Webster's Dictionary, they instructed, citing a core text for gay marriage opponents. (The dictionary amended the definition several years ago to include same-sex couples.)
"I'm a Roman Catholic," Barrett said. "For me, I can see how, civilly, they have the right to the benefits of marriage. But religiously, I can't support it."Tampabay.com

Clarification; Same Sex Marriage versus Civil Unions, Article  Amendment 1 - Freedom of Expression and Religion - Article XIV Amendment 14 - Rights Guaranteed
Special Guest Dr Charles Tolbert, Founder of Citizens for a Better America
This article is being written to explain the rights of citizens in United States of America as written in the U.S. Constitution and the enforcement of Article 1 (Amendment 1) and Article XIV (Amendment 14). It is important that the reader completely understands both articles prior to reading the reasons Ministers and Religion object to the term (SAME SEX MARRIAGES). There are several scriptures which also should be read in order for the reader to conclude when article one has precedence over article 14.
The Equal Protection Clause is part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The clause, which took effect in 1868, provides that no state shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction “the equal protection of the laws”.
A primary motivation for this clause was to validate and perpetuate the equality provisions contained in the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which guaranteed that all people would have rights equal to those of white citizens. As a whole, the Fourteenth Amendment marked a large shift in American constitutionalism, by applying substantially more constitutional restrictions against the states than had applied before the Civil War.
Article XIV (Amendment 14 – Rights Guaranteed: Privileges and Immunities of Citizenship, Due Process, and Equal Protection)

Norfolk residents Tim Bostic and Tony London, whose lawsuit against Circuit Court Clerk George Schaefer was the impetus of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Virginia, was the first gay couple in the city to receive a marriage license. The lengthy and controversial court battle culminated with the Supreme Court's rejection to hear appeals on gay-marriage rulings in the Commonwealth and four other states. Bostic and London will speak with Pilot Radio live Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 3 p.m. about their journey to the historic moment.

The Supreme Court effectively made same sex marriage legal in 11 additional states, Couples in these states should soon be able to obtain marriage licenses and be legally wed. This decision immediately became the most talked about topic on Facebook and shot to the top of trending topics in the U.S. on Twitter. Today, we have Dr. Stephen Fitzgerald, PhD, to discuss this landmark decision.
Gay unions are now legal in a total of 30 states, plus the District of Columbia--that is more than 60% of the population.
Tomorrow's show, we will go inside the gay community to get their perspective. http://www.tobtr.com/s/6985895
Huge news on marriage equality via SCOTUS. Thke Supremes will not hear five states' pleas to uphold their SSM bans rejected by federal courts. In another district, six more states' hopes for the same were likely dashed by the news.
GLAD's legal head and interim executive director, Gary Buseck, joins us to discuss the short-, mid- and long-term meaning. He has his Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders were active in the Utah appeal. GLAD had led in the equality efforts from the beginning.
Even if all 11 states allow SSMs, another 19 or 20 have dug in. What's next?
