Re: “Plaintiffs react to Louisiana same-sex marriage court decision

Given that Feldman is the lone outlier -- the only federal judge to rule against marriage equality since Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor -- it's probably a bit of an overstatement to call his decision a "major setback". Because really, if anyone's going to come out in favor of bigotry, it's probably going to be an old white guy from the Deep South.

I didn't know we even had fall in New Orleans. Was that one of Nagin's crazy inventions?
