Well, this should be an interesting electoral issue for the god-fearing conservative republicans standing for state and congressional elections this fall.  According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Constance Russell 'struck down the state's gay marriage ban', which was passed by ballot intitiative in 2004.  As the articles notes:

'Her decision on one of the state's most politically explosive issues comes as this year's election season begins to kick into gear. The November 2004 debate over the gay marriage amendment in several states — including Georgia — has been credited for helping bring social conservatives to the polls and aiding Republican candidates, including President Bush'.

Sonny Perdue, the funny-looking Republican Governor you can see dancing with high school girls here, states for the damn record that he is 'assessing' what the GOP's going to do to 'ensure the will of the people will not be thwarted'.  Great. 

If you live in Georgia and would like to call your legislators and kindly ask them not to be fascists, you can get the necessary information here.
