gay marriage cases

Associated Press, by Mark Sherman

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/7/2012 3:40:19 PM

WASHINGTON- The Supreme Court will take up California´s ban on same-sex marriage, a case that could give the justices the chance to rule on whether gay Americans have the same constitutional right to marry as heterosexuals. The justices said Monday they will review a federal appeals court ruling that struck down the state´s gay marriage ban, though on narrow grounds. The San Francisco-based appeals court said the state could not take away the same-sex marriage right that had been granted by California´s Supreme Court. The court also will decide whether Congress can deprive legally married gay couples

They have the same rights as any one now. Hetrosexuals can marry and so too can gays. And vis versa, gays can´t marry people of the same sex and neither can heterosexuals. In the end, this will create all kinds of problems as we all know the court will rule that anything goes.

Here we go. Look for a brand new constitutional right no one ever noticed before giving anybody or anything the right to marry anybody or anything. The Framers, of course, were very careful about including this.

After the NØbamacare disaster, I have no faith in the SCOTUS, or any branch of our government, to stand up against the tyranny of a small minority to force their perverse lifestyle choices on us.

The United State of America died on 11-6-2012. The rot that is consuming the corpse will only be sped up when the sodomites get official government approval of their perversion as ´´legally acceptable´´.

I have the strange feeling that this is how ancient Rome felt shortly before Hannibal came calling...

Gay marriage is inevitable. Disliking gays is not even close to a good enough reason to deny it.

Had they refused to hear the Prop 8 case, the 9th Circuits decision overruling Prop 8 would have been final. So the decision by the Supremes to hear it is likely favorable.

Disliking gays? Really? That´s the best argument you can come up with? This shows the dishonesty of the pro gay marriage camp - their total unwillingness to engage in logical discussion and argumentation. Play the hate card and get out of the logical thinking jail for free.

The essence of marriage is the male-female couple. Change that composition and you simply do not have marriage. From the pro gay marriage view, one must disingenuously argue that men and women are alike and therefor interchangeable, hence no "bride" or "groom" on the license. Likewise there is no intrinsic difference between a mother and a father. Children don´t need a mother, or a father - just whoever is there. Mothering and fathering are irrelevant to the lives of children.

If marriage can be redefined based on sex, why can´t it be redefined for anything else? Why can´t a brother and sister marry for the benefits? Who gets to set the limits?

And how shall we punish the traditionalists who refuse to accept this perverted redefinition of the institution on which solid families -citizens - nations are built?

FTA - A decision in favor of gay marriage could set a national rule and overturn every state constitutional provision and law banning same-sex marriages.

This is why they want the case. Laws passed by individual states, sometimes by huge margins, will be cast aside.
It won´t end with this issue either.

God let them follow their own evil desires. Women no longer wanted to have sex in a natural way, and they did things with each other that were not natural.

Men behaved in the same way. They stopped wanting to have sex with women and had strong desires for sex with other men. They did shameful things with each other, and what has happened to them is punishment for their foolish deeds.

With all the respect the MSM deserves and yes I am screaming

NO ONE HAS A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO MARRIAGE.

Not Gays, heterosexuals, little people circus performers, trolls, mutants, presbyterians or troglodytes.

Marriage is a religious covenant between a man, a woman and God. The state bestows certain priveleges on married couples in order to encourage strong families and safeguard Children. As such the "rights´ so strongly believed by the Gay Rights crowd to be enshrined in the constiutution can be taken away by the government at any time for any reason, period.

I absolutely (yes I´m yelling again) despise the complete intellectual dishonesty of this entire argument.

The goal is not a "right" the goal is for the government to endorse the gay lifestyle. I would rather the state take away all those "rights" like the right to pay higher taxes and the right to bear responsibility for mywifes kids and the right for my wife to get whatever the government does not take when I die without a will (which I already have idiots) and the right to have my wife decide end of life care without a health care proxy statement (which I already have).

Wuite frankly, the states "marriage priveleges" are right now wholly redundant and I would probably be better off without them. My Marriage is none of the states concern, that is between me, my wife and God. Period

Yes, here we go. I´m not feeling good about this. The sick feeling in my stomach since the election is worsening.

Gay marriage is being foisted upon us by a loud, obnoxious minority. Gays are one-point-something percent of the population, and those pushing for marriage number less than that. What could possibly be more important for our beleaguered nation than one guy marrying another??

Here´s the dirty little secret gays don´t want any light on, especially now: they are not monogamous. Among "couples," it´s most often "we are in an open relationship" and "I´m allowed to play around."

They don´t care about marriage, they want to force acceptance of the lifestyle. Whatever they want to do in the bedroom´s fine with me, but don´t force the lifestyle on the rest of us.

How many times must I say it. There is no "ban" on gay marriage in California. It is just not legally recognized by the state. Big difference. Since there is no "ban", nobody is infringing on people´s religion or their rights. The state does not have to recognize gay marriage though. A legally recognized state of marriage is not a right...that is actually a privilege.

Marriage provides the stable nest in which society renews itself. It is chiefly a benefit to society and that is why IRS deductions are allowed for children in the tax system.

Gay marriages cannot provide this renewal unless they adopt or artificial insemination is used.

If gayness is inherited they would have died out by now because over the millenia they would not have reproduced and so therefore could not have inherited gayness.

They can live together now, have a legal partnership and power of attorney. They can´t force their way into traditional marriage for their ego´s sake nor can they force acceptability by others.
This is just a matter of common sense, not a matter of religion.

By this time next year gay marriage will be recognized in all 50 states and by the Federal Government (full faith and credit clause a la Lovins vs Virginia) It will probably make civil marriage the norm and allow churches to bless or not to bless the unions. Health care benefits, reirement benefits, and estate benefits will flow to these new "marriages". And divorce lawyers will have a whole new crop of potential clients. Welcome to the Brave New World.

I say no more church weddings, everyone get´s married by a court official. Afterwards if you wish you can have your marriage blessed by your priest, rabbi or minister. Let´s take religion out of this civil union and see how many brides who voted for Obama complain that they can´t have their church wedding anymore because now gays can marry?

This is just a small incremental step. On November 13, a petition was started on

www.petitions.whitehouse.gov

Stating: This petition is for the Polyamorous to be allowed to be recognized as legal relationships within the United States.

And after relationships of numerous humans, can human-animal matings be far behind?

Why should the very vocal 1.5% deny the will of the 98.5% who are not gay and may not--as many in 31 states have voted--want their children exposed to that very vocal slim minority portraying themselves as superior to heterosexuals?

Just to make it FAIR I suggest that a gay childless couple be given at least two "child" deductions to begin with. It isn´t fair that a couple who can´t have kids should be denied the benefit.

Changing the legal definition of marriage is above everyone´s paygrade, nor can any court change authentic, ´´marriage,´´ to include any counterfeit, ´´marriage.´´

...This issue is not a matter of liking or not liking anyone. There are other ways to legally address the specific issues of concern to some people regarding caretakers, hospital visits, inheritances & etc., than to marginalize the authentic meaning of, ´´Holy Matrimony.´´

#23, it will happen if the SCOTUS rules for gay marriage. Churches of all denominations will stop marrying anyone in the church. The religious ceremonies will have to take place off church grounds but still by a minister/priest who cannot be forced to marry anyone whom they believe is violating religious doctrine. You cannot force anyone of faith to marry you. In essence, you go to church to hear the word and communion with other parishioners. That´s it.

Next, baptism and communion of children of gay couples. That´s coming down the pikes. Frankly, it does not matter where you marry or baptize as long as God reigns supreme. Those who engage in certain behaviors contradictory to your faith will have their conscience to deal with and the Good Lord will deal with them.

I walked into the zoo, pointed at a giraffe and commanded it to bark.

´You are now a dog! Bark! Speak!´

Silence.

You see, words have meaning as well as human relationships have definitions.

Beyond that think of the culture. The tradition. The history. The customs. Male-female marriage has been the basis of every civilization in every nation on every continent throughout time. Coincidence? Hardly.

Now we have a group more interested in destruction than in creation swanning in and declaring ´That´s ours now. We´ll have that.´ Changing laws is easy compared to changing minds. That´s why militants and malcontents go for the courts every time.

WASHINGTON — Bill Clinton found him to be cold and worrisome, but predicted he would be a tough and able leader. George W. Bush wanted to make him a friend and partner in the war on terror, but grew disillusioned over time. Barack Obama tried working around him by building up his protégé in the Kremlin, an approach that worked for a time but steadily deteriorated to the point that relations between Russia and the United States are now at their worst point since the end of the Cold War. For 15 years, Vladimir V. Putin has confounded American presidents

Or at least they seem more open about their faith, appearing before devout audiences and talking more about how religion shaped their lives or guides them now.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. are devout Catholics who faced questions

Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger. Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

Quoting unnamed administration officials, CNN host Jake Tapper revealed that the White House is “concerned” that Russia could invade South and East Ukraine “possibly as soon as this weekend.” He said that, in spite of Russia’s assurances that the large numbers of troops and military equipment amassed along the Ukrainian border are there merely for training exercises, the White House believes that Moscow could be planning a broader incursion into Ukraine. “There is now real apprehension that Vladimir Putin could push even further into Ukraine, perhaps as soon as this weekend,” Tapper said. He quoted anonymous administration officials who are “concerned”

Los Angeles — Vice President Joe Biden called on Congress Saturday to pass a measure to outlaw workplace discrimination against gays, saying it´s outrageous that the country is even debating the subject. Speaking to supporters of the gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign on Saturday, Biden said it´s "close to barbaric" that in some states, employees can be fired because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. "Imagine 20 years from now as America looked back and say ´How in the hell can that ever been allowed?´ The country´s moved on, the American people have moved on," he said. He said it was
