Mo. county to observe year of mourning over same sex "marriage" ruling

Sarah Kaplan, The Washington Post

While same-sex marriage advocates celebrated with marriage applications and rainbow heart emojis, Commissioner Darrell Skiles  drew up a proposal for his county commission. Calling the Supreme Court decision a “travesty,” he urged his fellow commissioners to vote in favor of a year of mourning over the decision. On Monday, the three-person commission voted unanimously in favor of the move, according to local newspaper the Salem News.
