Florida Court Overturns
State´s Same-Sex-Marriage Ban

National Public Radio, by Alan Greenblatt

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/17/2014 3:39:27 PM

A judge in Florida overturned the state´s ban on same-sex marriage on Thursday. The ban had been approved by 62 percent of voters in 2008. "The court is aware that the majority of voters oppose same-sex marriage, but it is our country´s proud history to protect the rights of the individual, the rights of the unpopular and rights of the powerless, even at the cost of offending the majority," Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia wrote in his opinion. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi filed an appeal almost immediately. Garcia´s decision applies only to Monroe County, which includes Key West.

Comments:
When almost two-thirds of the people have their wishes overturned by an activist justice, what can we make of any laws or our "representative" government?

Get the government completely out of the marriage business.

When you get a marriage "license" - - exactly what is the government "licensing" you to do?

It´s an unconstitutional outrage for the government to be involved in any way with private arrangements like marriage. Get it out - - NOW!

Judges don´t get to make law. And the people can expect their politicians to set such decisions out of the reach of judges. The states (and the federal congress) have the right and the power to remove from judicial review anything they want.

I´m a minority of one (1/3,000,000 percent). I just need to think up some really unwise agenda, and I´ll get to decide everything.

A little perspective here. Monroe County is mainly swamp and Key West. Key West is like one giant gay bathhouse, so this County Judge was actually in agreement with his constituents.

It´s amazing how one judge can void the wishes of 62% of the voters to make an exception in the law on a small part of the 3% of the population may choose to marry.

Marriage used to be between the church and the folks. It changed for a number of reasons some of which are: to protect the rights of children (please note that two men or two women cannot, on their own, have children. Another is to protect property rights between the parties. But the most important to the state was to raise funds. It charges for the license etc.
Now I don’t care about two of anything getting together, just do not call it marriage. Because the primary reason for that institution is to have kids. To continue the species.
Morals — all correct moral laws — derive from the instinct to survive. Moral behavior is survival behavior above the individual level.

The percentage of individuals addicted to homosexual behavior is measured at only 1.6%. The 3% figure includes some other addictions.
1.6% is a statistically insignificant percentage. They must have some clever PR people.

Between the propaganda from hollywood, current day literature and even the comic books, and the CONSTANT overriding power of our courts over the wishes of the people, is anyone still in doubt about whether or not homosexuality is something you are born to and that most of the people in this country except that lifestyle? Anyone?

No surprise. Maybe we need a religious protection ballot initiative declaring people & churches cannot be forced to perform these paper marriages. It´s coming folks. We all knew Obama lied when asked this in 2008. Yet no repercussions for his many lies. I assume that the state can strip me of the power to perform marriage if I chose not to marry gays.

Society is built around the norms established by societal norms. No homo is being denied being a mixed up, gender confused homo. What is being denied is for the State to RECOGNIZE this as "normal." It is NOT normal, under any definition around the world, especially in a Christian dominated nation. This Judge needs to be impeached. Activist Judges must be thrown from the bench.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) characterization of the U.S.-Mexico border as “secure” by telling his colleague to come take a look for himself. “President Obama and Harry Reid both engage debates divorced from the facts and divorced from the reality,” Cruz said on Fox News Sunday. “Harry Reid lives in the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C., and I’m sure from his perspective the border seems secure.

Gaza City - Hundreds of Palestinians fled in panic into Gaza City on Sunday as Israeli troops focused their firepower on the nearby town of Shaja´ia. The shelling and bombing killed at least 60 people and wounded 300, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. In previous days, Israel warned residents to flee, through calls, text messages and dropping fliers that said "it is the intention of the IDF to carry out aerial strikes against terror sites and operatives" in the area. (Snip) But the IDF said Hamas "ordered them to stay" and "put them in the line of fire." More than 410 people in Gaza have died in the fighting between Israel and Hamas,

In an interview with the BBC on Sunday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had a special message for Gaza residents: Get rid of Hamas before they get you killed. “We are shooting only at the sites where terrorists are shooting at us,” Netanyahu said. “We have asked the civilian population to leave, but Hamas is making them stay, turning them into human shields.” As Netanyahu spoke in the interview, Hamas was in the midst of violating yet another “humanitarian” cease-fire that the terror group had requested. Via the Red Cross, Hamas asked for the cease-fire to allow it remove dead bodies from the Shejiaya neighborhood in Gaza,

Denver - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin urged the grassroots Saturday to support her call for the impeachment of President Obama, imploring conservatives to push the idea with Congress. “There’s only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors, and it’s impeachment,” said Ms. Palin. “It’s the I word. You don’t need some fancy law degree hanging on your wall there to know laws are not being enforced today. Illegal immigrants all over the world also know that.” The former Republican vice-presidential candidate spoke to a crowd here at the Western Conservative Summit, sponsored by the

Washington - Shortly after the video begins, a man in his 20s dressed in camouflage appears on screen and begins a recruitment speech. His pitch is fairly straightforward: Come join the fight — you don’t need to be a radical to be a jihadi. (Snip) But while the young man in the video, Andre Poulin, cast himself as just a typical Canadian, the authorities there say he lived a far different life from the one he described. In his late teens and early 20s, according to a Canadian prosecutor, Mr. Poulin learned how to build explosives online and considered becoming an anarchist or a Communist, before converting to Islam.

Hrabove, Ukraine — A muted sun baked golden fields of hay and sunflowers. Bloated and mangled bodies gave off a fetid stench. (Snip) Two days after MH17 was shot down over east Ukraine — turning a simmering separatist conflict into a crisis of global proportions — the crash site remains a hideous mess that will make it harder for investigators to establish what happened — and for relatives to get peace. As Ukraine, Russia, and Moscow-backed rebels trade barbs over which side fired the missile that brought the Boeing 777 jet down, the bodies of the 298 passengers and crew killed instantaneously were still strewn across a field,

Miami - A jury in northwest Florida awarded a staggering $23 billion judgment late Friday against the country’s second-largest tobacco company for causing the death of a chain smoker who died of lung cancer at the age of 36. Michael Johnson Sr. died in 1996 after smoking for more than 20 years. In 2006, his widow, Cynthia Robinson, of Pensacola, sued the R. J. Reynolds Company, the maker of the Kool brand cigarettes her husband had smoked, arguing that the company had deliberately concealed the health hazards its product caused. The four-week trial ended Wednesday. The jury deliberated for 18 hours over two days,

Kiev - Ukraine intelligence officials said they knew three days before the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 that rebels in the east of the country possessed sophisticated air-defense systems capable of felling a jetliner at altitudes in excess of where the Boeing 777 was flying. The disclosure deepens the mystery of why Ukrainian aviation officials failed to entirely close off the airspace in the Donetsk region, where the jet was flying went it was shot down, killing all 298 people on board. Three Buk-M1 medium-range antiaircraft systems, also known as the SA-11 Gadfly under the North Atlantic Treaty Organization designation, were known to be in

Hundreds of protests are taking place across United States this weekend in opposition to the surge of immigrants illegally crossing the country’s southern border and proposed immigration reform that organizers say gives amnesty to those already living illegal in the United States. Organizers say 321 protests will take place over the next two days -- from state capitals to highway overpasses to Mexican consulates. The protests have been sparked by the thousands of Central American immigrants who in the past few weeks have entered the United States illegally in hopes of staying. “We know that 12,000 people expected to attend nearly 300

Dear Reader (including the president of the United States whenever he gets to this after dealing with many important fundraisers), If you’ve been reading my stuff over the years, you’ll find a number of common themes (“And recycled jokes.

The anti-Assad Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Thursday that 90 people had been killed and that many were missing after the attack against the Sha´ar gas field east of Homs in central Syria.

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar. Trotting up to the podium, the president fist-bumps the audience’s stragglers and smiles a toothy and humble grin at those who catch his eye. While speaking, he responds to obsequy with obsequy — “I love you too!” he

The man doing the threatening is Russian President Vladimir Putin.Earlier this week, Putin promised to retaliate against the United States for new sanctions targeting his friends and business associates, as well as large Russian defense, energy, and financial firms.

(Video) The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats’ border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation. Democrats don’t think people will catch up to this at some point?

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Gay marriage laws and court rulings against sexual-orientation discrimination are all signs that it’s time for the federal government to change its blood-donor policy for gay and bisexual men, authors said in a commentary released Saturday. The lifetime ban for blood donation by men who have sex with men (MSM) “may be perpetuating outdated homophobic perceptions,” wrote Dr. Eli Y. Adashi of Brown University and scholars I.
