MARYLAND: Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan Officiates Same-Sex Wedding

Via the Associated Press:
Kagan presided on Sunday over the wedding of former clerk Mitchell Reich and Patrick Pearsall in the Washington suburb of Chevy Chase, Maryland. Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Monday that the same-sex ceremony was the first at which Kagan officiated. Retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg have previously officiated at the wedding of gay and lesbian couples, including at the Supreme Court. Ginsburg most recently performed the wedding of Washington theater director Molly Smith.
When Ginsburg officiated last year, a chorus of outraged sadz erupted from Brian Brown and Matt Barber. The wingnut Charisma News denounced Ginsburg as a "tool of Satan." Stand by, Justice Kagan!
