Skip to comments.“Marriage Equality” Spells “Marriage Extinction”
Posted on 03/25/2013 8:57:25 AM PDT by Olog-hai
This week the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on two of the most critical cases of our time. On Tuesday, March 26, attorneys will make the pitch both for and against Californias Proposition 8. This, of course, is the Golden States pro-marriage amendment. It maintained the timeless definition of natural marriage as between man and wife.
Then, on Wednesday, March 27, the high court will consider the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), passed in 1996 with overwhelming bipartisan support and signed into law by then President Bill Clinton. It, likewise, secured the definition of legitimate marriage for purposes of federal law.
The stakes could not be higher. Of central concern is whether the Supreme Court will put its official stamp of approval on that cartoonish contradiction-in-terms labeled same-sex marriage. Ultimately, these nine justices will decide either to recklessly deconstruct, radically redefine and render functionally trivial the age-old institution of natural marriageor leave it alone.
Theyd better leave it alone.

Kennedy, I think votes with the minority (the good guys).
Gay John Roberts is completely in the tank.
The most momentous / drastic SC case in history and all because Roberts pretended to be something that he is not (conservative and straight).
We might throw in here: George W. Bush. The gift that keeps on giving. (Sometimes, honestly, I wonder about what it is about the Bushes and the gay men around them. 41 puts Souter on the court. Then GWB does this...and there’s all that about his Yale roommate who is a big time fag who he made into an ambassador. I don’t know. Maybe it’s a Skull and Bones thing).
Interesting. Does this explain why the Muslims are quiet about this ruling in the U.S.?
Does this mean the U.S. will eventually legally recognize up to four wives for a Muslim adult U.S. citizen or immigrant?
Does this mean the U.S. will be paying out welfare benefits for up to four wives and all of their children?
In the U.K. some Muslim immigrants have four wives and twenty children. What would be the housing solution in the U.S.?
I would rather do away with marriage completely than have homosexual marriage. Do away with tax benefits, estate benefits, etc., then everyone would be equal.
I am sick to death of this homosexual crap everywhere!!! I can’t turn on the TV without seeing it or pick up a magazine or go on the internet. And then you see liberal France with thousands of people protesting against it.
America is doomed.
“Justices Kennedy and John Roberts will be the deciding votes, which ever way it goes.”
And that is the problem.
The gay marriage proponents only need one of the “swing votes” while the Pro Family side will need both swing votes.
I’m thinking there is a 75% chance that Kennedy will vote with the liberals and a 60% chance Roberts votes with the liberals.
the SCOTUS math is rather depressing.
I was a teenager when ‘no fault divorce’ entered the American lexicon. As I recall the arguments, somehow this was going to help women because now they would be able to get out of ‘abusive’ marriages. I also recall a story in the local newspaper about a decade later pointing out that the unintended results had been to actually make it easier for men to get free of a wife and kids.
Another of those modern ‘improvements’ that doesn’t seem to have improved anything.
Roberts will vote the right way. Kennedy leans libertarian...that’S a problem.
Doing away with marriage completely is one of the goals of the left, though. Handing them the victory is our defeat.
FR was all in favor of Roberts though the blame bush crowd likes to forget that.
Sometimes we get fooled.
I’ve read statistics that state its less than half. Despite what McCatskull and Portmanteau and these other morons say, ‘loving relationships’ are scarce. Most homosexuals prefer polyamory, open relationships, and anonymous sex. Also interesting, among homosexual couples, domestic abuse is prevelant in half of those relationships. So half of less than half of 2% are the reason for destroying our sacred, ancient institutions... just sad. Sad and pathetic.
not all....I remember it very well. And I remember that snarky bitch ohioWfan and her self-righteous condescension. Unbeleivable.
Those of us who were Roberts skeptics are shown to have been right.
Of course, we would sure rather be wrong. Not much pleasure in being right when the country suffers like it has b/c of him.
I was for him as a justice.
I WAS TOTALLY AGAINST THAT NONSENSE WHEN SUDDENLY HE WAS NOMINATED FOR CHIEF JUSTICE!!!
That job should have gone to Antonin Gregory Scalia.
I just think its funny that people blame bush because they guessed wrong on Roberts.
His votes would have been the same whether he was chief or not.
I’m talking to the majority of people who were wildly in favor of the choice and now blame others.
Don’t kid yourself, the Chief Justice has a lot of influence. He basically sets the agenda for the court, and when something is be ‘considered’ on an emergency basis, he gets to decide which judge(s) will consider it. He also appoints a lot of judges to other courts, like the so called secret court.
And yea, the liberals love having one of their on as Chief Justice.
Muslims rarely have the four wives even in the Middle East and I’ve spent years over there. I think they do it more in the west so they can grow their population and also help relatives get on the dole.
Muzzies are being quiet because it furthers their goals of jihad. Their major obstacle is christianity and homos are all against christianity.
You never see homos saying anything bad against islam because the muzzie response will be swift and deadly.
I’m sure they are hoping that a lot of Americans will choose islam instead of homosexuality. They just have to sit back and watch for now.
The vote everybody is mad at him for...healthcare...would have gone the same way had he not been chief.
