Skip to comments.Supreme Court Next Big Decision (DOMA case in Mass. -Homosexual "Marriage" in all 57 states?)
Posted on 07/09/2012 6:26:49 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
After its ruling on the incredibly politically charged issue of health care, the Supreme Court might be taking on the next big politically charged issue, i.e. same sex marriage.
The Obama administration has asked the Supreme Court to take on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) case of Massachusetts upon its return from summer recess. The DOMA case was repealed by G.O.P after a Federal Appeals Court struck down the law as unconstitutional because it denies same-sex couples federal financial services and benefits.
According to reports the nation's apex court can take on the case as soon as September and declare a ruling by June 2013....

Let’s see how much the libs love Roberts brand of judicial restraint after this one. Let the Congress repeal it’s bill.
Massachusetts, hum, another Romney legacy.

Obama has confidence now that he owns Roberts.
We all know how the two Dykes will vote.
One of the two Obama appointees is a radical Leftist Lesbian - as far from impartial as a human being could be. Likely ditto for Sotomayer. There is no longer any even vaguely credible court of last resort in the United State of America. There needs to be a big wake for America.

Wouldn’t Roberts have to recuse himself ? /sarc
(yes, that's an '/s')
which supreme court justice handles mass?
with all the cases out there it seems very much like forum shopping.
The key in this nonsense is the “born that way” myth. The other is avoiding the religion argument. Arguing faith abandons logic and reason to the deviants.
Thank you for same sex marriage Willard...
Do I really have to say it ...
Yeah, Milt was also good for a gun ban in MA.
The Whitehouse has already said they will not lift a finger to protect the law in court and there had been a rumor that the GOP Congress was hiring lawyers of their own to support DOMA in court. Obama’s arrogance may be handing us an opportunity!
Sometimes when one talks of Romney it’s like those scenes in “Life of Brian”, when the people say “what have the Romans ever done for us”.
(Remember they list dozens of things the Romans did, and finally find one insignificant thing they did not do.)
Romney and BHO are the same on key liberal issues: abortion, homosexual, man made global warming, government mandates, government health care, destroying their opponents, gun bans, taxes, deficits, welfare........but they are different - Romney is taller and has sons instead of daughters. There see how much better he is that BHO.
Something tells me that we can’t trust Chief Justice Roberts on this one...
Gee, what gives you that impression?
I think it should read: "The DOMA case was appealed by G.O.P...."
“I predict the ruling will be 6-3 invalidating DOMA using the equal protection clause. Kennedy will write the majority opinion.”
I would go with that prediction.
However, the big case will be Prop. 8 and the will 6-4 Against Prop. 8 and I’m afraid Roberts will write the majority opinion.
And if Prop. 8 goes down, every state ban will go down with it.
