Top Republicans file Supreme Court
brief backing gay marriage

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/26/2013 10:22:36 AM

More than six dozen prominent Republicans have signed a legal brief to be submitted to the Supreme Court voicing support for gay marriage, the New York Times reported Tuesday. The list features members of Congress, including Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida and Richard Hanna of New York, top Bush Administration officials including national security adviser Stephen J. Hadley, and former presidential candidate Jon Huntsman. It also includes Republicans who had not previously signaled support for gay marriage, including former Rep. Deborah Price (R-Ohio), who

Comments:
It is getting to the point where there is little, if any, difference between Republicans and Democrats. Civil unions are fine, "marriage" is not.

Yep...it IS time for that third party. It is AMAZING how many RINOs this issue has brought ´out of the closet´. Heh Heh.

Hollywood seems to be winning out over God´s Word in America! We have asked, even begged Him to judge US!

Christians unite in prayer, presenting ourselves to the King, to intercede for US!

Amen

They can call it marriage, but no one will believe it or respect it. Ask these same sex married persons if they plan to have children - if so, how? Idiots and disgusting.

Let´s abandon God but expect God to bless us. Perhaps the problem is that our leaders no longer believe in God. And, yes, we are way overdue for a 3rd party.

Way to go, GOP! Make yourselves indistinguishable from the Democrat Party, falling right into their trap. Wusses.

Maybe it´s time for a second political party. That´s not a typo.

After all, with the way Republicans are caving, it may as well be a single-Party system right now.

Don´t blame the Republicans Party as a whole. This is mostly the same group of "moderates" and "libertarians" who have always opposed the party´s core, conservative principles. The one exception is Dick Cheney, who is doing this in support of his gay daughter. As a parent, I can understand even though I don´t approve.

I am sick to death of RINOs. The GOP needs to purge these so called moderates from their ranks. What´s the difference between them and the Dimorats? I like the Tea Party more every day.

The Republican Party died on 11-6-2012, along with our Republic.

The Republicans will never be a major player again. The Demon-RATS will win back the House, and increase their numbers in the Senate next year. When Øvomit leaves office in 2017, PIAPS will be ready and waiting to be sworn in.

I really have the feeling that this is exactly how the people of the Roman empire felt as it was destroyed. I guess it´s time for the savages to rape, pillage and plunder what is left of the once great superpower that we were under great presidents like Ronal Reagan -- a name soon to be erased by whoever buys the remnants of the USA at pennies on the dollar, and gets to rewrite history any way they want...

We are one lie-beral Supreme Court justice away from becoming a third-world cesspool like Cuba.

God has abandoned this nation, because this nation abandoned Him and we, His supposed followers, stood by and let it happen.

The definition of, ´´marriage,´´ already exists according to the rule of law and of God. Why should it be perverted now by any PC-de jeur special interest group?

These people never consider the ramifications for what they do, but they feel good about themselves. They surely are driving Republicans to stay home at election time, because there is now no difference between the two parties.

This is written by a person who has no animus to gay persons, but just wishes that they would have respect for traditions. We wish them happy and wonderful relationships with anyone they wish, but just wish to exclude the word marriage from gay unions. If that makes me a homophobe, then I don´t recognize myself.

When this is all said and done, the new elites will be sueing the traditionalists even for thinking differently.

Hey, all you individual freedom-loving folks out there - -

Private contractual arrangements are NONE of the government´s business. The only time government should get involved is if there´s a conflict among the contractors - - then the government´s courts can help settle the dispute.

Ergo - - no government at any level has any right to issue "marriage licenses." They´re unconstitutional. Private contractual arrangements are strictly a matter for free individuals to decide.

Wake up, folks - - individual freedom is on the line here. Why would any of us want there to be MORE government involvement?

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Father Ray Kelly, the singing Irish priest who shot to fame with his wedding ceremony cover of “Hallelujah,” will perform in New York, on Tuesday May 13, to support the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth. As his video gathered traction online Fr Kelly was a guest on RTE’s “Late Late Show.” He told host Ryan Tubridy that he hoped his new found fame

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
