MarriageNewsWatch: Bad News from Coast to Coast

Somebody please give us something to feel good about, because the marriage news lately has been nothing but grim.

With only one month left to pass the marriage bill, we’re still far from victory in New York, Minnesota’s house passed a double-ban on marriage, the head of Equality North Carolina resigned, Rhode Island couldn’t turn civil unions into marriage, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker took a break from attacking labor to attack LGBT families, Paul Clement’s going to town on DOMA defense, Republicans blocked a pro-equality judge, and our olive tree is dying.

Got anything to feel optimistic about? Anyone?
