In other news, Latinos now outnumber white people in the state of California. The conservative Real American apocalypse has arrived and it's about damn time.

Meanwhile, a judge in Toledo, Ohio is refusing to marry same-sex couples because it violates his religious beliefs.

“I declined to marry a non-traditional couple during my duties assignment,” McConnell said in a statement. “The declination was based upon my personal and Christian beliefs established over many years. I apologize to the couple for the delay they experienced and wish them the best.”

The judge also said he’s asked the Ohio Supreme Court whether he can opt out of the rotation to avoid violating his religious beliefs.

It may be time for Judge McConnell to retire or, at the very least, resign.

If he is taken out of rotation to avoid marrying gay couples, he should also be taken out of rotation for any case involving gay defendants or complainants. How could any legal counsel representing gay people trust that they will receive a fair hearing from Judge McConnell?

That may be too narrow. What else violates his religious beliefs?
