* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

NM Gets Marriage Equality (Who's Next?)
« on: December 19, 2013, 03:18:04 pm »
I knew the issue was brewing in New Mexico, but I had no idea this was coming today, making NM state #17 (plus DC):

NM Supreme Court affirms same-sex marriage rights


http://www.abqjournal.com/323346/abqnewsseeker/nm-supreme-court-affirms-same-sex-marriage-right.html

Unanimous, no less.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

As a resident of New Mexico, this news pretty much made my year. I feel proud of the unanimous part of the ruling in particular, too.

That article seems to have disappeared. I found this via Google:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/20/us/new-mexico-becomes-17th-state-to-legalize-gay-marriage.html?_r=0

 
Thanks, Randall.

When I asked, "Who's next?" I never dreamed we'd have an answer in 24 hours...let alone that the answer would be this state. My head is spinning like Linda Blair's:

Federal Judge Rules That Same-Sex Marriage Is Legal in Utah
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/21/us/utahs-gay-marriage-ban-is-ruled-unconstitutional.html

And more importantly, you know heads have got to be spinning all over the Mormon Church! Though their official response was rather restrained.

The challenges are already being filed, and you know this won't stand without a fight. I don't know if this will withstand higher Federal review. But since no stay was immediately placed on the judge's decision, and since there's no waiting to get married in Utah once one has the license, some same-sex couples have jumped on the ruling and already gotten hitched...in Utah. WOW!

I swear, when I saw that I thought I was hallucinating.  Or on the Onion or something.  I still can't believe it.

UTAH.  REALLY?????

And the judge who issued the decision trolled Scalia while doing it :)

I haven't had any caffeine in me yet this evening so I'm not sure if this is a hallucination or...

In all seriousness, I have no clue what to feel about this.  Part of me is still going WTF over this.  The other part remembers not only Prop 8 but all the other reasons I dislike the LDS Church and cant help but reveling in the schadenfreude of the situation.
