No marriage for gays = no marriage for anyone

An Oregon county is now refusing to marry anyone because they don't want to treat people unequally. I'd like to think that putting hetrosexuals in the same position as gays will cause them to rethink their position, but they can simply drive over the county line and get married. Gays can't.

OTOH, it may force the Oregon state legislature to clarify the law, and provide opportunity for a challenge under the state or federal constitutions.
