BY 5-4 VOTE, SUPREME COURT IMPOSES GAY MARRIAGE ON ENTIRE NATION

It is done.

Now come the knock-on cases, where they ban federal funding of religious schools that don't recognize gay marriage.

You Will Be Made to Care.

Here is the mere opinion of five transient cultural Marxists.

This, actually. Religious institutions should withdraw from any and all relationships that the government can use to control them. So, repudiate tax-exempt status. Everybody should be putting as much distance between them and the government as possible, legally speaking.

Here, the constitution DOES say you're just as good as those other people!

THIS is the "reasoning" of the "court" on redefining man's oldest institution?

Not sweeping away discriminatory tax benefits (which should be done)? Not simply ensuring that all practical benefits of voluntary relationships are equally shared?

Is there even any trace of legal or constitutional "reasoning" involved? Is Gabe come edumucateus?

"No, we do not recognize the authority of the Supreme Court to define what the laws of our state can and cannot do in this area."

"No, we will not allow the use of any state resources directly or indirectly to enforce any part of this ruling."

This is not a fight we can win as people.

Gay marriage, I don't really care, but if it attacks religions and forces them to go against their beliefs... I care.

The trade deal? Who knows what was in it. Trade? Trade can be good for the nation. But was it Trade? Nah, more Emperor powers.

Gun control. Same thing.

Recycling, living energy efficient? Sure, within reason. Not this fake global cooling/warming/change BS just for the rich to get richer.

We have lost all common sense. People have lost their collective minds. They are acting like feral dogs attacking the only piece of meat left on the planet.

142 We'll have to take up the fight over encroachment of religious liberties, I saw a post over at Patheos the other day echoing something I've been saying for a few years now. Take the civil marriage power away from religious organizations.

As a Catholic, my church marriage is the only thing of any consequence, the rest of it is for legal and tax purposes. I would have no objection to checking that box at the town clerks office. In a minor way we were discriminated against as a marriage license cost 10 dollars more than a civil union.

That being said, I'm glad this particular fight is now at an end, it won't stop of course, but this should not be an issue for 2016 unless our candidates continue to make it one. We may not be happy with the outcome, but I think that two "divisive" type issues have been taken off the table for the general election, if we choose to play this smartly.

1) Obamacare, which will never be repealed even under a GOP presidency, no matter how much we wish it to be, is now a done deal. It's never going away folks, we are stuck with it just like any other entitlement, and it will be made even worse over time under the guise of fixing it.

2) Gay marriage, it was coming to every state eventually, this hastens it. At some point in the last 5 or 6 years, the switch got flipped on this one. I heard on the radio yesterday talking that even California passed Prop 8, so we conservatives must be winning. It's a different world than it was 7 years ago when Prop 8 passed, it would not pass today.

So we need to keep fighting to avoid future encroachment on the conscientious objectors of the culture war, but these issues are off the table, and should remain so for any serious contenders for the GOP nomination.

168 Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves.

So what difference should it make that they are one man and three women, or two women and four boys and a dog? They love each other and seek to make a deep and meaningful commitment to each other. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The constitution grants them that right.

My desire would be for the RCC to voulntarily give up that status. This would force a tremendous amount of consolidation, school, and hospital closures. But would be beneficial for the longterm health of parishes, and would allow us to fight encroachment on religious liberty head on without having the risk of running afoul of some tax law.

It would be difficult thing to do, but with the decline of vocations, there are many unhealthy parishes that will be closing eventually anyway.

244 "Gay marriage, I don't really care, but if it attacks religions and forces them to go against their beliefs... I care. "

The thing is, that has been the whole issue from the get-go. It's what is behind the baker problems et al: 'we are going to bully and persecute you because you told me that being gay is a sin'. They now have the lop-side force of the government 100% on their side so brace yourselves for the prosecution as no Christian is going to be protected by the First Amendment or your local government.

They've successfully turned this into a "civil rights" issue. Unfortunately those that have argued against it have ignored solid science such as the Twin Studies that show that homosexuality is NOT genetic (check my sig link).

As ace pointed out, in polite company I'm not going to turn to the gay couple at the party and say "I disagree with your relationship."

Hell, one of my wife's bridesmaids came out as lesbian (which wasn't a huge surprise) about a year after our wedding.

Banning gay marriage in several states doesn't stop them from doing...well anything. For that matter it didn't stop people from saying they were married even.

In short it did absolutely nothing.

I'm going to do what I did, just keep ignoring them. If they seek to go to war with the religious institutions, so be it. If they want to destroy the country over their desire to be paid attention to, honestly there's really nothing we can do to stop them because they're fucking crazy and you can't stop crazy.

Even if they do that, they're still going to get sued into oblivion by people who want to be married in a church that by their own religion does not believe in homosexual marriage.

335 Ace of Spades readers need to think more carefully in order to forestall more non-thinking decisions like the current one. Its "universal" premise: gays and lesbians (G&L hereafter) are as precious, important, American as are heterosexuals. Yeah. Maybe the Constitution and the Bill of Rights applies to G&L, too. The decision's implicit text FU middle class family, white privilege, E Pluribus Unum, everything that makes this country special.


However, on the other hand, G&L deserve equal rights and privileges and protections as does every other American according to the Constitution. That includes rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness which cannot happen if one cannot pursue the intimate relationships of one's dreams.


Those with religious beliefs that denigrate (or worse) G&L were not rendering unto Caesar, and they were as acting authoritarian rather than American-republican. If Republicans long ago had acted according to the Constitution and made certain that G&L had all rights and privileges as every other American by developing a law that gave equal legal and personal responsibility rights under another title, e.g., "Partner" for "spouse", I don't think this issue would have come to the Supreme Court in this way. It has been way too late for quite awhile because no appropriate action was taken in a timely manner. Republicans/conservatives must take an equal (at least) share of the "blame" for this decision.

Nothing will make the left try to change this ruling faster than if an entire fraternity or other large organization or someone sues under "equal protection" be to able to be "married" so that they can get huge tax write offs, and claim everyone as dependents or whatever.

Or a rich guy with one wife and no minor children. Try to marry his entire family so that he can claim more people as dependents.

372 Actually, the previous two rulings are less rational and more likely to be problematic for a longer time. (depending on how it is applied vis a vis religious objection).

It at least relied on the good faith assumption of the laws of one state being honored in another.

the refusal to accept that plain faced definition so as to avoid overturning the entire law in king and the other of disparate impact will be more destructive and have no basis in reason.

I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. The one where they nullify the clarification they made to the 2A and the loosening up of the law concerning open and concealed carry.

I can't imagine them letting those stand given the about turn that Roberts seems intent on making with this court.

I am opposed, vehemently, to this ruling. I am, seriously, terrified as to the view of judicial oversight set out in King, the disparate impact case and now this.

It isn't even that hard to find statements by the SSM activists admitting this - it's about destroying marriage by redefining it to legally recognize a whole host of relationships in order to get benefits, etc.That, and to harass anyone who has ever disapproved of their lifestyle choices. The lawsuits have shown that there's a revenge element - that no one will be allowed to publicly disagree with them. That's not about love.

390 Scalia's best line: "no social transformation without representation."

Posted by: rrpjr at June 26, 2015 10:48 AM (s/yC1)

391 Wasn't Ace a big supporter of this not so long ago? If so, congrats on the victory.

Wow, 5-4, whoever could have guessed that? Why not flip a coin and save time/money?

I won't even bother reading the legal justification, because as yesterday's case proved, that no longer matters.

Results in search of rationales.

If "society" via state legislatures and voter referendums, doesn't have the right to define what a marriage is for the purposes of legal, social and economic recognition, who does define it? Answer - the Courts, and the Courts look to the definition of the person standing in front of them. In this case, it's a gay/lesbian. The next case will be 3-4 people. The next case will be siblings. The next will be underage, the next after that good old Santorum's man and dog. Why? Because marriage is a individual "right" and the definition is "individual" as well. It's not "subjective", up to each person. So long as you can convince one judge, you're all set.

"So what's the harm"? Guess what - you'll get to find out yourself.

For example, did the court say you have to be gay/lesbo to enjoy a same sex marriage? If not, I strongly suggest marrying friends or relatives, especially if you truly need financial support or benefits. You can always divorce later with no stigma. "Same sex" marriage is just that - same sex. Has nothing to do with sexual orientation. We'll get to discover those consequences together, wrapped under a big bright rainbow.

Next comes polygamy, because if sex doesn't matter, why should number? Better hope your state pension plan can adsorb survivors benefits for 3-4 spouses. Hint - it can't.

I formally wash my hands of the SCOTUS. Say whatever you want to about us Judges and lawyers. We deserve every bit of it. We are ruled by Stage One Thinkers and they will destroy us. Hell, they already have.

Posted by: Saltyron at June 26, 2015 10:48 AM (i6shs)

392 Let's just say that next time I'm called for jury duty, I'll stand during voir dire and state, "I do not accept the legitimacy of this court."

If forced on, which would be exceedingly small at that point, I'm deciding against the State if it is a State case. I can prejudge, too, if that's where we are now. Ckuf it.

I mean what do you do at this point? Explicit law and the intent of law doesn't matter one bit. Our Court system is populated and ultimately trumped by people who either do not understand their job or do not care about law.

I'd be curious how SCOTUS would poll now. It's respect has been dropping pretty handily recently. The BS being shoved down our throats now cannot be helping.

396 I see quite a few people across the interwebs trying to attribute some nobility to Roberts and his rulings this week.

I don't believe that at all. I believe that Roberts wanted to seal his stamp on the court and this/these are the arguments he chose. There have been relatively few Chief Justices and even fewer who have achieved "immortality" by having their name prominently associated with the court they presided over. Had Roberts ruled solely based on the law and the results not been controversial, Roberts name would have been a minor footnote in history. Now, the Roberts court will be historical and I think this is all there is to Roberts decisions.

All he cared about, imo, was fame.

407 Let a regular army, fully equal to the resources of the country, be formed; and let it be entirely at the devotion of the federal government; still it would not be going too far to say, that the State governments, with the people on their side, would be able to repel the danger. The highest number to which, according to the best computation, a standing army can be carried in any country, does not exceed one hundredth part of the whole number of souls; or one twenty-fifth part of the number able to bear arms. This proportion would not yield, in the United States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men. To these would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of citizens with arms in their hands, officered by men chosen from among themselves, fighting for their common liberties, and united and conducted by governments possessing their affections and confidence. It may well be doubted, whether a militia thus circumstanced could ever be conquered by such a proportion of regular troops. Those who are best acquainted with the last successful resistance of this country against the British arms, will be most inclined to deny the possibility of it. Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.

____________________

For now.

But there is nothing inherently special about a two-person union, despite the court's words. Lots of cultures, including Muslims and Mormons, have long traditions of polygamous marriage. They will argue, with some justification, that their multi-person marriages have the same level of commitment, and deserve the same level of legal recognition and protection, as everyone else's.

And, after all, why should polygamists "be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions"? Why should polygamists be deprived of the "dignity" afforded to every other interest group? It's clearly not fair.

So look for an "evolution" towards legalizing polygamous marriage in the near future.

Posted by: TrivialPursuer at June 26, 2015 10:50 AM (kGrdk)

411 I have always had the opinion that any legal advantage that a married couple might have should be available to ANY other couple. This came from my first encounter at work with health benefits being offered only to families, while those without families were equally invested but had non one to share their benefits with. Why couldn't they share them with a needy parent or sibling, for instance.

However, to be married also conveys other obligations, whether they are wanted by the couple or not. The most obvious is that spouses share community property that must be divided in a divorce. They will most likely share each others debts.

It's a result that they may come to regret at some point.

I sure hope that doesn't happen.

This case wasn't about gay marriage, really, it was about Federal versus State authority. SCOTUS decided here that one terribly worded phrase in an amendment gives them the power to completely undermine enumerated powers and force states to do something.

In states where same-sex marriage was already legal, some companies were ditching that option--get married or get off the insurance.

One of the professional gay bullies at Slate was bitching earlier this week about the "freedom to marry" becoming "mandate to get married"--gays used to be able to form relationships in any of myriad ways, but now they're all gonna be expected to get married, like straight people are.

I laughed. A lot.

Except we were not 'left to our own devices'. It was a conscious effort by the Soviets to inject a poisonous ideology into our public debate. It was a deliberate effort to undermine the very foundation of our government by feeding a feeling of resentment and feeding the idea of resisting military service.

It was a traitorous act by the Democrat party to prohibit any investigation of the anti war protest movements of the sixties to see if there was influence by foreign governments or foreign agents in those movements.

It should be clear now that the anti war protests of the sixties, the anti nuke protests, the environmental movement, immigration, health care, all of it, was taken over by agents of a foreign ideology and used to subvert legitimate government and destroy the very cultural foundations of the United States..

Statement: Governor Jeb Bush on Todays Supreme Court Decision on Same-Sex Marriage:

"Guided by my faith, I believe in traditional marriage. I believe the Supreme Court should have allowed the states to make this decision. I also believe that we should love our neighbor and respect others, including those making lifetime commitments. In a country as diverse as ours, good people who have opposing views should be able to live side by side. It is now crucial that as a country we protect religious freedom and the right of conscience and also not discriminate."

I don't actually mind gay marriage. I have issues with the way it's being imposed, from above. I will be staying away from social media for a day or two I think, because the gloating will be annoying.

My main issue is the way this may affect religious institutions. There is no reason why a marriage cannot be conducted in a civil manner, by the court, and not be imposed on a church. That is how it should be done.

494 eman @ 88: "What will gay people say when incest is next or under the age of consent or bigamy or mental retardation?

They will say nothing and will do so because they got what they wanted and fuck you."

I agree that they'll say nothing; but it won't be out of apathy. I think the left's real agenda here is the destruction of the family, to be replaced with the state; tearing down institutions to rebuild society as they see fit. A side benefit for them will be increased numbers of non-procreative relationships -- the left is strongly Malthusian.

So I wouldn't be surprised if they actively pushed legality and favored tax status for all of those nutters you listed, and bestiality too. And marriage to inanimate objects -- once everyone gets the marital deduction, no one will have it, because they'll have to increase marginal rates on all to make up the difference.

But of course that's absurd. Just like the idea of pushing gay marriage was absurd, back when all they wanted was civil unions.

This isn't the end. It will never end because the left will not stop. They'll just keep nudging and ratcheting.

That's correct. Just look at the statistics for how children raised in a two parent, biological family are when compared to the other family situations. There's considerably more problems with the latter than the former and the left loves to use this to convince the public to enact yet more governmental programs to "correct" these problems. These programs don't work, naturally, and so they repeat the cycle.

And all the while, the left is able to concentrate yet more power into the hands of government this way. They're sick individuals and they need to be called out on it at every chance.

"Guided by my faith, I believe in traditional marriage. I believe the Supreme Court should have allowed the states to make this decision. I also believe that we should love our neighbor and respect others, including those making lifetime commitments. In a country as diverse as ours, good people who have opposing views should be able to live side by side. It is now crucial that as a country we protect religious freedom and the right of conscience and also not discriminate."

Marriage is not something men just made up and could have made however we wished. It is an acknowledgement of biological and sociological facts, namely that men and women are different (biologically, sociologically, psychologically), that men and women are both required for procreation, and that a family (yes, with a mother and father) is the basic unit of society in the same way that atoms are the basic units of matter.

Nothing they do will make me stop believing that. Nothing they do will make me stop saying that. The burning times are coming- we have embraced Sodom and Gomorrah.

My guess is that the denomination's leaders (most of whom support gay marriage) will simply announce that by law, we have no choice but to accept it, and the denomination will collapse as membership drops in half almost overnight.

It is easy now to see a future in which Christianity will end as it began, with small groups of believers meeting in secret in homes, hoping they aren't ratted out to the government.

or go their separate ways.

Interestingly the main argument will be the divvying up of the real property.

there won't be much arguing about what's sinful and what's not. Those arguments have already been made.

This could actually be good for organized religion.

It's been being coopted by the government for years now with money. by refusing Government money, the Churches can be free to preach and act as they will.

For some this will be very costly but then they're the ones who have built their houses on the sand of materialism and deserve what happens.

-----

There is good reason for the Church to get out of the state marriage game. The Church should perform sacramental marriages, but perhaps it should avoid signing any marriage certificates (as it does now). For one, the form will be person A and person B, not man or women. The Church should not participate in this. Let the state define marriage for state purposes and let the Church define marriage for God's purposes. If (like me) you want more than a state marriage - you want a sacramental marriage - then I have to go the Church. If I then want to get the state recognition, I'd have to go in front of a judge. In other words, the Church should consider (and maybe even must) take the position that a Church marriage has no legal state effect.

Socialism was, ahem, IS, a foreign ideology. However, the way the politicians interpreted their duty to defend the Constitution specified that our security people could only go after foreign agents and those directly supported by foreign agents.

The New Left was (IS) composed of citizens (/spit) fully committed to that foreign agenda; thier hostility was to the foreign agents, as they wanted the glory of running the death camps themselves. Because they were citizens (/spit), our politicians and security community treated them as dissenters, not the traitors they were (are).

The failure of our politicians and our security community has been a continuous process since then. In the 50's, Socialism was legally acknowledged as the enemy to America that it is. Yet the people tasked with defending the country failed to understand the full nature of the ideology, and to take the necessary steps that would have eliminated the greater part of that threat.

712 It is easy now to see a future in which Christianity will end as it began, with small groups of believers meeting in secret in homes, hoping they aren't ratted out to the government.
Posted by: Agent J at June 26, 2015 11:10 AM (ueOgE)

Christianity will not end. Remember, "upon this rock I shall build my church and the gates of Hell will not prevail against it."

Certainly, rough times are coming - here in America. But Christianity actually has always thrived under persecution. (It's growing very rapidly in China.) In fact, that's the problem - when societies prosper like the West has done, believers become complacent and decide they don't need God.

Well, people who are nominal Christians now will either fall away entirely or reaffirm their faith. The wheat's going get separated from the chaff.

It will not be easy. Jesus never promised it would be.

Except we were not 'left to our own devices'. It was a conscious effort by the Soviets to inject a poisonous ideology into our public debate. It was a deliberate effort to undermine the very foundation of our government by feeding a feeling of resentment and feeding the idea of resisting military service.

It was a traitorous act by the Democrat party to prohibit any investigation of the anti war protest movements of the sixties to see if there was influence by foreign governments or foreign agents in those movements.

It should be clear now that the anti war protests of the sixties, the anti nuke protests, the environmental movement, immigration, health care, all of it, was taken over by agents of a foreign ideology and used to subvert legitimate government and destroy the very cultural foundations of the United States..

Now is the time for someone like Gov Abbott to say something like,

Barack Obama and his allies in the federal government have decided they have the right to overrule the 1st Amendment by fiat. The freedom of religion is one of the core values of this nation. He has now put us in the position of bowing to his wishes or following the Constitution as clearly written.

I cannot, and will not, allow the President of the United States to stomp on the rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights. As of today, the state of Texas is nullifying this ruling and the ruling enabling Obamacare. Texas will not abide by these outrages and will continue to follow the law and specifically the Constitution instead.

Additionally, as a sufficient number of states have called for an Article V convention, I am consulting with the other governors and state legislators across this nation as to the manner and place of the convention, which I am tentatively scheduling to start this summer.

And that's not religion talking. That's evolution. I would no more discriminate against a homosexual than I would someone with manic depression. That doesn't mean I want an entire group of them, small as they are, shaping the culture of our nation.

Very true.

Persecution invariably strengthens the true and weeds out the false.

I've never had a problem with what you do in your private life. I do have a problem with seeing institutions that are the basis for a civil society being torn apart. Marriage, and family, have always been about what is best for raising the children and the statistics bear this out.

I also worry about what will happen to the religious organizations in this country. They do a great deal of charitable work and this has been challenged in the past (Massachusetts vs. the Catholic church, for example) with the result of the Catholic church abandoning a line of charitable work. This will accelerate, with more misery being the result for the poor, unfortunately.

I don't hold this against you, beerologist, and I wish you only the best for both you and your partner. I'm afraid that the freedom and the benefits that come from this are going to be lost or greatly reduced.

Now what you are doing is attacking churches and outlawing Christianity instead of making a new relationship under law. What you are doing is not marriage but is instead a horrific insult and deliberate perversion of a holy ordinance - done so to hurt and eventually imprison believers.

You are not marrying. You are just perverting goodness in order to attack Christians. You are no different than those who deliberately commit violence against homosexuals. IN fact, you're worse and all who support "gay marriage" are worse. You support genocide so that you can posture. It's sick and wrong and is the death of the nation.

If only it were that simple. But of course you can't just marry the one you love. They have to be within a narrow range of specific categories.

They can't be too close a relation
They have to be older than the legal age of consent
They can't already be married
I can't already be married
They have to be willing to marry me
They have to be the same species as me
They have to be alive
They have to be able to give consent

Unsurprisingly, they followed that by saying they would never overturn it because it was so deeply entrenched in people's lives, etc., etc., thus demonstrating what biased, dishonest crapweasels they are.

For example the States pass an amendment that says unless 3/4 of the States agree with a SCOTUS decision it is null and void and additionally if you the Federal Gov't try to undermine our decision we will withhold the federal taxes until such time as the Federal gov't let's the State's vote be upheld.

One of the studies done on gay marriage in Europe found that more than half of them were between an EU citizen and someone from a developing nation who couldn't get a residence visa under any existing category.

I found that interesting.

But I remember reading somewhere that Obama's DoS was already processing same-sex spouses of American citizens, so apparently didn't need SCOTUS for that.

Because to control population they had brainwashed people into believing that being gay was the right and normal thing and that being straight was the abnormal.

952 @898
I recall that in my 1L year, many moons ago, an article came out summarizing a poll of law professors regarding what they thought the worst SCOTUS decisions in history were. Oddly enough, their #1 was Roe v. Wade, on the grounds that there was absolutely no actual constitutional law backing it up. Unsurprisingly, they followed that by saying they would never overturn it because it was so deeply entrenched in people's lives, etc., etc., thus demonstrating what biased, dishonest crapweasels they are.
-------------------------

I've got a biography of Supreme Court Justice Byron White ("The Man Who Once Was Whizzer White"). It notes that even when he disagreed with the majority in an opinion, he was always willing to accept that opinion. He would invariably incorporate those same opinions that he'd disagreed with into the opinions he wrote later on. The sole exception to this was Roe v. Wade. He viewed that as bad law through and through, and never used it to support any of his opinions.

There's no question that will happen. The proper move for churches is to end their tax exempt status. Then they can say whatever they want about any topic and refuse fake weddings without the IRS attacking them for violating their status.

966 What a posted this morning at 4:00 on the ONT thread:

The day that the government forces me to perform same sex marriages-or marriages for anyone for that matter- is the day I put my aged body in an orange jumpsuit to get ready to go to the pokey.

If you ask most clergy people I would imagine that performing marriages is not their favorite thing. Why? Because many people don't have a clue about Christian marriage. They want to get married in a church because they like the stained glass windows or it's the pretty little church on the hill, not because they want to take vows in front of God. People are obsessed with how people look in their fancy outfits and where the reception will be be, whether there will be an open bar or not. and where the honeymoon will take place They want an excuse for a big party. And actually. if we're going to regard a marriage as simply a big party for people who love each other,. gay people are perfectly capable of loving someone, of having a lifelong commitment and they can enjoy a big party as much as straight people can. However, since i have spent much of life writing things, I care about words and what they mean and marriage has always meant-in this culture-a commitment between a man and woman intended to be lifelong. I would rather we kept that term for a monogamous relationship between a man and a woman and use the term "civil union" for gays and if people want to find churches that will perform gay unions they can certainly do so. Because if churches are forced to perform gay marriages then they will be forced to perform polygamous marriages and marriage will become whatever the government wants it to be. Marriage shouldn't even be done under the auspices of the state, IMO Let very one have civil unions and let churches perform marriages Because when the state tells me which marriages I must officiate at they will then tell me what I may preach and churches will become nothing more than propaganda arms of the state such as in Nazi Germany. I'm no Dietrich Bonhoeffer; I don't even know that I'm a particularly courageous person, but on this I will not move. so help me God and God will have to help me because i won't be able to refuse under my own strength.

These unions are now the law of the land. And we would not entertain such criticisms any more than we would entertain criticisms of interracial marriage or those claiming that women are less equal than men in the eyes of the law.

And there's no way nullification will make it through (what is it) 3/4 of state legislatures and 2/3 of the Senate & House?

People who try to undermine my liberty such as muslims, leftists and fags are lesser people. I make a point of avoiding them anyway I can and I am pretty successful at that.

You cannot force me to consider them any better than they consider me.

Your "love" of something does not validate it as moral or acceptable by me. It is a cheapening of the word "love" that is shared by a man and woman who decide to bond for the purposes of having a family (which gay rights activists derisively refer to as 'breeders.')

Of course, a rational court would hold that the 1st Amendment requires that all religious organizations remain tax exempt because otherwise it would be subject to "fines" and "penalties" by the Government. That would be the Government using the taxes to control religious expression- don't like the Pauline Espistles? IRS Penalty suddenly appears on your EFTPS account for $30,000.

Taxation is control. The IRS is historically corrupt. Therefore, any taxation of any church is forbidden since it is "prohibiting the free exercise thereof".

Then it will be time for them to move, or for the people who attend to make some choices about their tithing and money they donate.

Sure a beautiful building in a key location is nice. But maybe a humble building in a poorer part of town would be more Christian.

Well, in Michigan, this now means that not only will gays be tripping over themselves getting to Ann Arbor's clerk offices to get married, but the state's prohibition on gay's adopting children will be struck down also. The premise for that was because the state wanted children adopted into married households. So it's a twofer, gays get state approval and benefits and get to adopt pets, uh, each other's kids or kids out of the state system.

This is happening eventually and already in some places regardless of the tax status. What will need to happen is a voluntary consolidation of parishes and clergy. I've already dealt with this in a populated suburb recently, two parishes with aging congregations serving the same community. They are merged with two worship sites and will eventually be consolidated to one. There already aren't enough priests to go around, with a single priest running three or more churches in some places. Happened to the area where my grandparents lived in PA, a single priest as pastor of three parishes, he died and they all closed. Goes double for the schools, in NYC alone they close a dozen a year and then lease them out as public school annex buildings.

Better to control our own destiny and fight out own fight without having to worry about having these choices forced on us because some govt. entity is holding your tax status hostage if you don't comply.

It's not even just the biblical definition. it's the definition of humanity long before God revealed Himself to Abraham. It was the definition of all the pagans the Israelites we're surrounded by. It is the definition of the Hindus and Muslims and Animists.

Marriage has only ever been between a man and a woman. The only things that differedis in the number of people a person could be married to. But it has always been that a person could marry only someone of the opposite sex. In polygamous marriages, the wives aren't married to each other.

According to The Wall Street Journal, police believe Fairey is responsible for putting up posters on several buildings that they say are incredibly difficult to remove.

For putting up the unauthorized posters, Fairey is being charged with malicious destruction of a building.

Fairey was invited to Detroit last month to paint a giant mural for Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert - and by giant I mean 18 stories high - but it's other work he did around town during that time that's come under scrutiny.

I guess these posters don't celebrate The One. It is good to see the revolution eating its children, though.

I recently saw a PBS special about identical twins which featured a straight twin and a gay twin. If there really is a gay gene, than all sets of identical twins would either be both gay or both straight. The thesis is that some sort of trauma in the womb made one twin gay. Since it was a PBS special, they didn't point out the implications of that - that while people may in fact be "born that way" and it's not their fault, its a birth DEFECT.

Like you, I don't want to harass and persecute people for having a birth defect, but I don't want to applaud them for it either. Or pretend it is no different from being straight.

This is a problem for liberal diocese, not Conservative ones. We have six, sometimes seven priests at our parish; two deacons, a seminarian or two running about, and I think eight nuns. Our school has a waiting list. We run 7 Sunday masses, full except for 7AM. In the liberal breast of the beast - Falls Church VA.

Young priests want nothing to do the old stuffy liberals running the PA dioceses. I see it all the time at the in-laws. They have young men leave their diocese and move to get away from the stigma of the lefty bastards. The Holy Spirit flows to the passionate, not the weak in faith.

I wish. The land I grew up on was sold to developers, all the forest hacked down including the 150 foot cottonwood and the 200 foot double douglas fir over the spring. Now its crappy houses with landscaping, and half of them are empty because it was done just as the housing market crashed.

"What is done is done. GOP would do well to accept this decision and move on to other questions."

And the most insulting part is that is was never done. Voters repeatedly voted this down. Everywhere, consistently. They just kept coming back, time after time and using black-robed homosexual or homosexual sympathizers to illegally get what they wanted.

F*ck that and F*ck them. Never.

1090 The Roman Catholic Church has a quite thorough doctrine regarding Christian marriage. Even if say, Pope Francis wanted it (and i do9n't know that he does) he cannot wave his hand and impose it, Change of doctrine takes a long time-much longer than it would take in Protestant traditions.

"If the world hates you, remember that the world hated me first. If you

belonged to the world, then the world would love you like it loves its

own people. But I have chosen you out of the world. So you don't belong

to the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the lesson I

told you: A servant is not greater than his master. If people did wrong

to me, then they will do wrong to you too."
John 18:15

1093 I recently saw a PBS special about identical twins which featured a straight twin and a gay twin. If there really is a gay gene, than all sets of identical twins would either be both gay or both straight.

I have seven straight brothers, and about 15 straight nephews... I am really dubious that it's genetic.

1095 Jesus takes candlesticks away from the church every so often. I suspect He's got a lot of lukewarm and apostate churches under His gaze right now. God will not be mocked, and we all - all churches, all Christians - have plenty to repent of before we start condemning other people. The nation didn't get this way because the Church was too much light and salt in the culture.

What makes you think its not an example of the wrath of God? Sometimes He punishes us by giving us what we want. Gives us over to sin, as Romans says. God have mercy on us all, because his patience is not infinite.

Where do you draw that line with mental illness? You've admitted the possibility that it might be a disorder, yet think it should be endorsed and protected by law. What other mental illnesses should also be considered in this way, and how do you make that call?

Marriage is not the only way to do that. Civil unions provide exactly the same protections, but activist gays rejected them. (No "in yer face" to Christian conservatives). Even before that, there was contract law.

1104 Had a good talk with my sis yesterday about SCOTUS rulings. Told her how distressed I was over the judges spitting on Constitutional law for good feels, to stay on the "right" side of history. That I hated that state's rights are officially dead. She sympathized, she hates it too, but reminded me that this has happened for a while now, that if states want their rights intact something should have been done a long time ago.

As regular commenters know, she is gay, so of course she is thrilled with this and will have a great time at Pride this weekend in NYC. She's one of the sane gays whose identity is not defined solely by who she sleeps with. She genuinely wants a family one day, and I will be a super proud auntie when that happens. I'm glad she can marry, I really am.

But what about my religion? The LDS church is no stranger to the government sitting on its hands and leaving the the ravenous wolves of society to mete out "justice" against them. Gays in the church have been respectful of the stance of traditional marriage, much more respectful than say the militant women in the church screaming for change. We'll see just how much this changes that.

1105 Christopher Taylor: "What purpose would it serve, unless he's just come to the conclusion that the court has become so hopelessly corrupt and compromised its pointless to stay."

See, that's where I think the Court is. It does not interpret; It creates. That is an offense.

If the law is wrong, strike it down and send it back for editing or let the States handle it. We also have an Amendment process that could empower the Court courtesy of the Founding Fathers if the People wanted it.

But, no, they do not respect their office and at this point I think they are too collectively ignorant or corrupt to represent a Republic.

It is unworthy of respect or recognition.

1122 This is nota good week to be right an American.

Don't leave out the disparate impact decision. (Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project) Once again, the courts have taken a law that explicitly prohibits racial discrimination and quotas and has turned it into one that requires both. This opens the door for the federal government to start planning your city's development and force it to have the required racial, gender, and trans-gender distribution that their Utopian vision of the perfect society requires.

Homosexual marriage by its very nature destroys a child's natural family by deny them access to one or the other of their natural parents (of course Kennedy explicitly denied the research that shows this is damaging to children).

1124 There is a substantial movement within American Christian churches to no longer perform civil marriages on behalf of the government. There will no longer be any signing of marriage licenses.

Any couple wishing to be legally married will need to do so at a government office or with a government approved friend or neighbor. Those wishing a church experience could do so, but it would be considered a "blessing" and not a marriage.

What is potentially a giant unintended consequence of the SCOTUS decision is that Christian couples may well begin refusing government-sactioned marriages while pursuing church blessings instead... blessings that would still pronounce them "husband and wife" without the "by the power vested in me by the State of Indiana".

This could be big.

Remember that the next time some dolt says he's done with the GOP. Know how many Justices are over 75 right now?
