Mississippi in limbo over high-court’s same-sex marriage ruling

by TINA SUSMAN AND MARIA L. LA GANGA The Los Angeles Times  |  published on June 29, 2015

Amber Hamilton and Annice Smith were the first same-sex couple to wed in Mississippi, and nearly the last, at least for a while.

About an hour after the pair filled out the requisite paperwork, handed over $21 for a marriage license and sealed their nuptials with a happy kiss Friday morning on the steps of the county courthouse in Hattiesburg, another lesbian couple, Shelly Cranford and Shannon Smith, received a far different reception.

Their mistake? Arriving just after Mississippi’s attorney general, Jim Hood, declared that the U.S. Supreme Court ruling declaring same-sex marriage a constitutional right would not be observed in the Magnolia State.

    Thank-you, Mr Hood! Good thing the Hattiesburg courthouse was on the ball with the ruling, time-wise.

    That’s what all the states should do and I hope they do. If not we can expect More of the wrath of God
