Mooted.

The Georgia Supreme Court says that the Georgia Marriage Amendment does not violate the single subject requirement:

"It is apparent that the prohibition against recognizing same-sex unions as entitled to the benefits of marriage is not 'dissimilar and discordant' to the objective of reserving the status of marriage and its attendant benefits exclusively to unions of man and woman," [Justice Robert] Benham wrote.

So no recognition of marriage - or its "attendant benefits," whatever those might be - in Georgia. At least until two-thirds of the state legislature decides otherwise.

Given that the Supreme Court mooted the question of whether a special session on same-sex marriage is necessary, I wonder if any Democrats regret their hasty decision to support one?
