I'd hate to be a Wedding Singer in Oregon right now 

Unless I'd gotten a HEFTY deposit.

This is unbelievable. It looks like the religio-crazies were right. It really IS destroying marriage. Or at least making it take a long-needed vacation...

Oregon county bans all marriage


In a new twist in the battle over same-sex marriage roiling the United States, a county in Oregon has banned all marriages -- gay and heterosexual -- until the state decides who can and who cannot wed.

The last marriage licenses were handed out in Benton County at 4 p.m. local time (7:00 p.m. EST) Tuesday. As of Wednesday, officials in the county of 79,000 people will begin telling couples applying for licenses to go elsewhere until the gay marriage debate is settled.

"It may seem odd," Benton County Commissioner Linda Modrell told Reuters in a telephone interview, but "we need to treat everyone in our county equally."

Yes, it does seem odd, in these modern times.
