Following the law: Registers of Wills across the state, including Westmoreland County's Michael Ginsburg, signed a resolution stating they will not issue same-sex-marriage licenses unless Pennsylvania law changes. Currently, the state Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) prohibits same-sex marriage but a lawsuit challenges the act's constitutionality. Registers are upholders of laws, not lawmakers. Their stance is correct. It's up to the Legislature to make laws and the courts to strike down those that are flawed.
