CNSNews ^ | 12/21/2013 | Terence P. Jeffrey

Posted on 12/23/2013 9:20:08 AM PST by rktman

Judge Robert J. Shelby, whom President Barack Obama appointed to the U.S. District Court in Utah last year, issued an opinion on Friday declaring that a right to same-sex marriage is "deeply rooted in the nation’s history and implicit in the concept of ordered liberty."

Uh, excuse me your "lyin' king" appointed judgeship. You might want to choose different terminology when talking about gay marriage. Somehow using "deeply" and "rooted" are a little uh, off-putting.

Marriage between a man and woman is deeply rooted in history...in fact, it is what has saved societies...it is the very fabric that has kept this country great and strong. Redefine it...pervert it...and society will soon crumble.

Actually that would be laws against sodomy that were deeply rooted in our nation’s history.

time to purge law schools.

1. shut down the diploma mills.

2. prohibit far left only professors.

3. end tenure.

4. end bankruptcy immunity for law school loans. (if a graduate files bankruptcy, make the law school pay the bill)

"Deeply Rooted " would be appropriate only in Australian jargon
Not here in the States !

I would like to see him prove that.

They're also ridiculously obvious blatant lies. Obummer and his minions take brazenness to a totally new level.

Possibly you have stumbled onto something and it’s time to rewrite the history books. The founders left europe to escape discrimination/persecution due to homo-itis? There, now we’re “deeply rooted” in historical fact. LOL!

I don’t see a “right” to marry the same sex listed anywhere in the US Constitution.

Marriage between two individuals of the same sex is not deeply rooted in either our or any other society, in fact it flies directly in the face of the very definition of the term marriage.

I challenge the judge to prove any such claim.

HUH? It’s not right next to the “right” to an abortion? Dang. I’ll have to read it again.

His judgeship doesn’t have too. He was appointed by the “lyin’ king”.

Using the judge’s logic, you have an existing right to marry a ‘57 Chevy.

Marriage isn’t mentioned in the constitution but falls under religious freedoms.

As I stated on another thread: This judge needs to be given a pee test. A person would have to be on drugs to come up with that kind of logic.

The judge seems to live in an alternate reality, with an alternate history, and is clearly unfit for his position. Either that or he’s yet another damned pervert pushing his depraved agenda, who’s a disgrace to the free American air he breathes.

Scum like this judge has done far more damage to the country than al-Qaeda could have ever conceived.

The American people are the true culprits for making it possible for people like Shelby to be appointed to federal courts. They lack the ability to discern constitutional matters.

I remember as a child, the left insisted that marriage needed to be eliminated because it was an "outdated vestige of the patriarchy" or some such nonsense. That was also back in the days where we had to "do something" about global cooling, speech that was most ridiculous was most in need of protection and we needed to stave off repression by "the man", i.e. government.

Nowadays, marriage is a critical right which must be recognized in ever more ridiculous combinations (they certainly won't stop with gay marriage), we have to "do something" about global warming (er - climate change), only the most ridiculous speech is now allowed, and they have become "the man" and don't you dare question them.

It's like an entire movement running out of John "flip flop" Kerry's brain.

Employment of Homosexuals and Other Sex Perverts in Government (1950)

Interim Report submitted to the Committee on Expenditures in the Executive Departments by its Subcommittee on Investigations pursuant to S. Res. 280 (81st Congress). A Resolution Authorizing the Committee on Expenditures in the Executive Departments to Carry Out Certain Duties....

Conclusion

. . . It is the opinion of this subcommittee that those who engage in acts of homosexuality and other perverted sex activities are unsuitable for employment in the Federal Government. This conclusion is based upon the fact that persons who indulge in such degraded activity are committing not only illegal and immoral acts, but they also constitute security risks in positions of public trust.

Excuse me?

Marriage is a legal/religious institution that arose out of our basic biological imperatives. It exists to ensure the survival of the human race. Everything about marriage is an extension of that basic biological mandate.

What, about homosexual partnerships, fulfills the biological mandate of reproducing and ensuring the survival of one’s bloodlines? Is there a single aspect of homosexual partnerships that resembles heterosexual relationships (entered into for the sake of producing/rearing children)? Everything I have read about homosexuality suggests that the formation of long-term relationships is a rarity; the fleeting hook-up culture is more the norm. You can’t change that by destroying marriage.

Deeply ROOTED? You can't make this crap up, can you??

Speaking of "deeply rooted", I'll bet one of these guys knows how THAT feels.

Unfortunately, most Americans don't know – or care – just how far down the drain we've slid!

Sorta gives new meaning to the once proud boast that one served under a West Pointer!

Anything spent on this dipshit’s education was simply p!ssed down a rat hole. That is what is “deeply rooted in nation’s history.”

I wonder if this freak judge is a “pitcher” or “catcher”? I’m sure his “partner” is proud of him.

Romans 1:18-32

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: 25 who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, spiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
