Federal Judge: Right to Same-Sex
Marriage Is ‘Deeply Rooted in This
Nation’s History and Tradition’

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Judge Robert J. Shelby, whom President Barack Obama appointed to the U.S. District Court in Utah last year, issued an opinion on Friday declaring that a right to same-sex marriage is “deeply rooted in this nation’s history and tradition.” Shelby was confirmed to the federal bench by a voice vote of the Senate on Sept. 21, 2012. There was no debate over his nomination, and no senator objected to his confirmation. He has now issued an opinion that could fundamentally alter American law and culture. “The State’s second argument is that the Plaintiffs are really seeking a new right, not access to an

Comments:
Of course only an 0bama appointee could make such an outrageous, misguided statement. "There was no debate over his nomination, and no senator objected to his confirmation." How in the world did that happen??? I hope I´m dead and gone when this country collapses on itself much like Rome. The maglignancy of the radical left is invading and destroying us.

The federal judiciary needs to go. The black-robed tyrants have too much power, and zero accountability. If we can´t get rid of the federal judiciary, the least we can do is force them to be elected to limited terms. No more Senate confirmation, no more lifetime tenure.

When those members of the judiciary become outrageous enough, there is a way to get rid of them. Its called an old rope and a tall tree.

Obama is loading the courts with this type of judge. One who writes laws vs interprets them, Obama will have so many gay judges on the bench in the next three years, The world will think of the USA as GAYNATION and Christians will be placed in reeducation/concentration camps for expressing long held Christian doctrine.

That is an incredibly stupid, ignorant thing for a highly educated citizen of this country to say! Therefore his agenda is open and obvious for all to see. People in his jurisdiction should scream bloody murder and call him out! Especially when Christians, whose rights ARE deeply rooted, are losing those rights due to such judges.

This whole thing isn´t really about "marriage," it´s about tax benefits, social security benefits, inheritance, hospital visiting rights ... civil and monetary benefits.

It would have been much easier and painless if they just instituted civil unions amended the tax laws, inheritance, etc. to include civil unions.

Brainless blather from a hard left fanatic. The institution of marriage between man and woman predates its religious trappings by millennia. Marriage evolved from the need for culture/civilization to raise and socialize children. It remains its core function.

This law was legally passed in 2006 by a majority of Utah voters. Now one person´s opinion can negate the majority.

Since Same-Sex Marriage is deeply rooted in our history and traditions, I can easily see a time when marrying more than one person and marrying a non person or animal will also be a deep rooted part of our history and tradition.

I just hope I am not alive to see it.

That quote seems completely idiotic and deliberately false.

This nation outlawed same-sex marriage for over two hundred years. That is its tradition and history.

And before that the colonies, English, Spanish, and French, did the same for a few centuries.

Perhaps the Judge refers to some Native American practice?

Some sincere arguments are made for same-sex marriage. One may agree or disagree and laws do change. But it is or was hardly historical and traditional except perhaps in Common Core texts or to Federal Courts.

Whatever anyone thinks of gay marriage, there is no way it is traditional or in any way intended by the original framers or the adopters of the amendments. The 14th amendment was adopted to protect former slaves--black people--against discrimination. It was never intended to encompass all of the other groups that seek protection under it and, in general, the Supreme Court has made it difficult for anyone to claim discrimination based on something other than race or gender. Everything else is OK if there is a rational basis for the discrimination. Is there a rational basis for not allowing gay marriage? Yes! Gay marriage conveys little to no societal benefit while traditional marriage is a bedrock of civilization. Too bad our Federal judges are so afraid to acknowledge this simple and obvious truth.

Why did these Judges get in power? Why did Obama and these satanic Senators get in power? Because idiots voted them into power. NOW we will all sink into destruction as a result of the purposely low-information voters. There is no excuse in this high information age to not be aware of the facts. I am disgusted with so many stupid people...who have literally put their lives and their families lives in jeopardy. They were warned by the Conservatives but what did they do? They cursed them and persecuted those who tried to warn them. Now, they´ll pay the price and eat the fruit of their own actions. But they will also have to stand before God and give reason why they caused the deaths of millions of innocents.

First and foremost, this so called judge has no jurisdiction to hear such a case. Second, he obviously lied to come to this decision, that means he can be removed from the bench. Federal judges, including those on the Supreme Court are not appointed for life. The Constitution states that they have their term of office "during good behavior", Article 3, Section 1. Lying to the American People after taking his oath of office is perjury, and is not good behavior.

This is a first class moron in a black robe. There is NO history of gender confusion in our history, or tradition. About the only thing he can point to are famous Hollywood actors who wore military uniforms while making war movies.

This idiot, just like the one who overruled the will of the residents of California on the Statewide election defining marriage as being a union between one man and one woman. Of course, the Federal Judge there was also a mixed up homo with a boy in the fight. That ruling was pathetic and in none of the 90 pages of rambling on about "fairness", etc. was there a single mention of the U.S. Constitution, or precedent setting cases. His ruling should have been overturned based on his being a homo. A normal male Judge would have ruled otherwise.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program.

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side."

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being.
