As you'd no doubt heard over the weekend,

"The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday night stopped county clerks from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, a move that throws hundreds of unions performed over the past two days into limbo.

"The court - at the request of Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller - issued a stay of a ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard Young that found the state's gay marriage ban unconstitutional."

This article regarding Loving v. Virginia, although it's a year old, makes an interesting read given Indiana's current marriage debate.

In case you're wondering, here are seven attorneys general who, unlike Greg Zoeller, refused to defend their states' marriage ban.

Before Zoeller's appeal, of course, there was reason to celebrate.
