Idaho same-sex marriage ban
struck down by federal judge

Los Angeles Times, by Matt Pearce & Maria L. La Ganga

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/14/2014 1:52:20 AM

Idaho´s same-sex marriage ban became the latest to be declared unconstitutional Tuesday when a federal judge handed another victory to gay and lesbian couples. That extended a unanimous streak of rulings across the country over the last year. "Marriage is a fundamental right of all citizens, which neither tradition nor the majority may deny," Chief Magistrate Judge Candy Wagahoff Dale wrote in her opinion. Dale did not suspend her ruling, as several other federal judges have done after striking down such bans elsewhere. But the governor´s attorney had filed a request for a stay Monday, just in case, and plans to appeal Dale's ruling.

And, the walls that protect the sanctity of marriage continue to be knocked down by the blasphemers. It's going to be appealed by the U.S. 9th Circus Court of Appeals in San Francisco. No use wasting their time before it is rubber stamped "approved."

When are the citizens going to "strike down" activist leftist judges--like with a baseball bat?

Nowhere have I read that marriage is a fundamental right of all people. Marriage is a sacrament, not a right. It is a blessed union for the continued procreation of the human race. It involves a male and a female making a covenant with one another. Whence come these judges with their cockamamie ideas?

In many states judges are elected. Simple solution is to replace them with people that understand that they are there to uphold the law not to make it.

This is just lie-beral judicial activism testing the waters.

They know President Hillary will be able to replace at least one conservative Supreme Court justice with another lie-beral. The lie-berals will then have the majority on the Supreme Court.

At that moment, judicial activist judges like this woman will be able to make the laws of this nation without legislative action. They can claim anything to be unconstitutional, and the Supreme Court will back them up.

Gun control, homosexual marriage, instant citizenship for illegals, etc. All by judicial activism, not legislative action or, God forbid, the vote of the people.

Lie-berals will not rest until they have destroyed this nation. It´s not a matter of "if" any more, but "when"...

Thanks for your opinion. Now roll it up and stuff it!

YOU do not have the authority to reverse laws, only to advise the legislature.

New York - The announcement Friday that the National Park Service will begin installing markers at places of importance to the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans is a step toward including them in the national narrative — and components of education, supporters said. (Snip) Jewell said the nation is on a journey to expand civil rights to historically underrepresented groups. The process on LGBT issues mirrors efforts the service already has undertaken to preserve and promote locations that reflect the roles of Latinos, Asian-Americans and women in U.S. history.

Hillary Clinton may not be much at administering the State Department, but she’s certainly a pro when it comes to expressing outrage at her own persecution. For the woman who is supposedly the world’s most powerful feminist, her sense of victimhood remains surprisingly strong. That’s never been more true than in her new book, Hard Choices, which points out that she – not the four men who died in Benghazi, Libya, on the night of September 11, 2012 – is the victim. The Clinton camp reportedly leaked the 34-page Benghazi chapter of Hillary’s latest tome to favored outlet Politico. The portions quoted by Politico demonstrate an

House Speaker John A. Boehner said Friday that the select committee charged with investigating the 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya is about getting the truth and that it’s up to the committee members to decide who they want to call as witnesses. Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, was asked about a reported excerpt from a forthcoming book by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in which Mrs. Clinton accuses people of exploiting the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack for political gain. “This is about one issue and one issue only, and that is getting the truth for the American people and the truth

Scientists in the Netherlands have moved a step closer to overriding one of Albert Einstein’s most famous objections to the implications of quantum mechanics, which he described as “spooky action at a distance.” In a paper published on Thursday in the journal Science, physicists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology reported that they were able to reliably teleport information between two quantum bits separated by three meters, or about 10 feet. (Snip) Moreover, the scientists are now closer to definitively proving Einstein wrong in his early disbelief in the notion of entanglement,

The House of Representatives passed an amendment Thursday to stop all federal funding to be used for the Department of Justice’s Operation Choke Point, an anti-fraud operation that was found to be cutting off legitimate businesses from their banking lines. “This is a major victory for consumers, law-abiding businesses, and anyone who believes in due process and restraint of government encroachment,” said the Community Financial Services Association of America, a trade group opposed to the operation, in a statement Friday. “Additionally, our banking system benefits as it will not be put in the position to police customers or make

Emmy-award winning actress Patricia Heaton — who plays the beloved but beleaguered wife on both hit series’ “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “The Middle” — said without God, she wouldn’t have seen so much career success. “I came to L.A. when I was 32,” she said, giving remarks about her new comedy “Mom’s Night Out” to reporters, NewsBusters reported. “For a woman, that’s like 100,000 in dog years. I had no agent or manager. The fact that I’m sitting here talking to you all, and I’ve had a couple of great shows … God had a hand in opening these doors.

President-elect Barack introduced retired Army Gen. Eric K. Shinseki as his nominee to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, bringing to his Cabinet a career military officer best known for running afoul of the Bush administration by questioning the Pentagon´s Iraq war strategy. Shinseki, a four-star general and 38-year veteran who retired shortly after the fall of Baghdad in 2003, appeared with Obama in Chicago at a news conference today commemorating the 67th anniversary of the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor. Obama said Shinseki agreed to join the incoming administration because "both he and I share a reverence

The two girls had been tied and were found lying in a clearing in the bush, their faces scratched and bleeding, their school uniforms torn. "They were hardly conscious," says Baba Goni. "They were crying and said that their kidnappers had raped them." Goni, a thin, 15-year-old boy from the area, had been combing the Baale region of northeastern Nigeria with a civilian militia on that day. They were searching for the schoolgirls the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram had abducted from their boarding school in the city of Chibok on April 14. Some of the 276 kidnapped girls have now escaped, including four this week, while 223 remain missing.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews — who famously picked up the mocking nickname of “Tingles” for his adoring references to then-campaigner Barack Obama’s speaking skills — took the unusual step of criticizing the president this week, calling out his handing of the VA scandal and suggesting stronger action was warranted. During a “Hardball” segment that included Sen. Sherrod Brown and former Sen. Bob Kerrey on the panel, Mr. Matthews argued that the president wasn’t so much concerned with the fact that veterans had been placed on a secret waiting list for health care, but rather with his own image, Breitbart reported.

Audit: State paid $12 million

Cook County has long been ridiculed for allowing dead people cast votes, but the state may have just garnered a new distinction. It paid $12 million in health care for people who were already dead — including in one case, for a person who had died in 1989. A new financial audit released by Auditor General Bill Holland’s office on Thursday found that the Illinois Department of Health and Family Services had 8,232 people still on Medicaid rolls qualifying for benefits, even though they were dead. The state paid monthly premiums totaling almost $7 million for 561 people who had already been dead for an average of nearly two years before

The Miami Gardens, Florida “stop and frisk” style policy may be “unparalleled” in the U.S. According to an investigative report by Fusion, in the summer of 2010, a young black man was stopped and questioned by police on the streets of Miami Gardens. According to the report filled out by the officer, he was “wearing gray sweatpants, a red hoodie and black gloves” giving the police ‘just cause’ to question him. In the report, he was labeled a ‘suspicious person.’ He was an 11-year-old boy on his way to football practice.” Fusion found that 56,922 people were stopped and questioned by Miami Gardens Police Department

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg accused the entire Ivy League of liberal political bias during a particularly fiery commencement address at Harvard University Thursday. "It is just a modern form of McCarthyism," Bloomberg said of university "censorship" of conservatives. "Think about the irony: In the 1950s, the right wing was attempting to repress left wing ideas. Today, on many college campuses, it is liberals trying to repress conservative ideas even as conservative faculty members are at risk of becoming an endangered species" "And that is probably nowhere more true than it is here in the Ivy

Black Beach Week used to get all the glory: Every Memorial Day weekend, 300,000 black people gathered in Miami Beach to get their freak on. And also create a tsunami of violence, robbery, shootings, carjackings, vandalism, mayhem, noise and trash. But this year, many party-goers complained that Black Beach Week -- only reporters call it “Urban Beach Week” -- just wasn’t as much fun any more: Too many cops, tactical vehicles, helicopters, lights, towers, cameras, suspicion. Not enough chaos. Not to worry: The rest of the country picked up the slack. Black mob violence over the holiday weekend was reported in more

Maya Angelou, an author more revered than read, passed away at 86 on Wednesday. She is survived by her seven autobiographies. In addition to Angelou playing Boswell to Angelou’s Johnson, Angelou acted, wrote poetry, danced, and sang. Was she an actress, poet, dancer, or singer? People liked her politics, and, out of ideological solidarity, reflexively praised her talents in multitudinous endeavors. At her most irresponsible, she embraced Fidel Castro, Malcolm X, and Bill Clinton—a mistake for a lady of any age. (Snip) In this spirit, she insisted that others call her “Dr. Angelou” though she never obtained a college degree. The

DENVER— Colorado´s Civil Rights Commission on Friday ordered a baker to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples, finding his religious objections to the practice did not trump the state´s anti-discrimination statutes. The unanimous ruling from the seven-member commission upheld an administrative law judge´s finding in December that Jack Phillips violated civil rights law when he refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in 2012. The couple sued. "I can believe anything I want, but if I´m going to do business here, I´d ought to not discriminate against people," Commissioner Raju Jaram said. Phillips, a devout Christian who

But this was such a brilliant operation. And his landing in Moscow just makes old Cold War warriors like me very suspicious.” Baer also dismissed Snowden’s assertion on his first U.S. television

Lihue, Hawaii - A judge sentenced a Hawaii man to one year of probation and a $200 fine for making his son walk a mile home from school as a form of discipline. Judge Kathleen Watanabe called the punishment "old-school" and no longer appropriate, the Garden Island newspaper reported Thursday. Robert Demond of Kilauea said he picked up his son from school and asked about a matter that had been brought to his attention. When the son didn´t respond, Demond made him walk home to think about his actions. The age of the boy is unclear. Demond's attorney and a prosecutor didn't immediately respond to a request seeking
