D.A.: I'll arrest same-sex wedders
Says homosexuals purporting to be 'married' committing frauds

A district attorney running for Pennsylvania attorney general is vowing to arrest anyone associated with same-sex weddings.


"There should be no Rosie O'Donnell weddings in Pennsylvania, and there won't be if I'm the attorney general," Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor Jr. told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Even though same-sex marriages are currently illegal in the Keystone State and there haven't been any homosexual couples forthcoming to seek a marriage license, Castor issued a letter to the local reigster of wills in Norristown, Pa., making his position clear.

"Should you, as clerk of the Orphan's Court, permit to be issued a marriage license to a gay or lesbian couple, you and your office would potentially face criminal liability," Castor wrote.

He also stated homosexual couples "holding themselves out to be married ... are possibly committing frauds actionable by criminal prosecution," the paper reported.

Castor noted those issuing or seeking same-sex marriage certificates could face a misdemeanor charge of obstructing administration of law or other governmental function.

The director of legal affairs for the American Civil Liberties Union says he's disturbed the issue of same-sex marriages is moving into the criminal arena.

"The real question is why he needs to throw out a threat of criminal prosecution," Larry Frankel told the Inquirer. "Let's have a civil debate about whether we should have gay marriages, rather than involving the heavy hand of the criminal-justice system."

Meanwhile in Chicago, the clerk of Cook County says despite his personal support for same-sex marriage, he won't be issuing licenses to homosexual couples.

David Orr issued a written statement explaining state law prohibits them from tying the knot.

"After careful discussion with same-sex marriage advocates and like-minded elected officials, we have agreed that without widespread political and legal support, we need to explore alternative ways to secure these rights," Orr said.

Orr's statement drew swift reaction from homosexual activists including Keeanga Taylor of Chicago's Equal Marriage Now.

She told the Associated Press elected officials who say they support same-sex marriage but are not taking steps to make it legal are "on the side of homophobes and bigots."

As WorldNetDaily reported, New York's attorney general issued a judgment today declaring the licenses illegal.

Attorney General Eliot Spitzer said in a statement it's up to the courts to decide whether the state law barring same-sex marriage is constitutional.

"I personally would like to see the law changed, but must respect the law as it now stands," Spitzer said, according to the Associated Press.

This is pretty much a desperation move on the part of Bruce Castor, as he's trailing in the GOP primary for Attorney General, partly from a self-destructive candidacy.

This entire episode reminds me of the civil rights movement of the '60s. The elements are all in place: you have states and legalities refusing to enforce the law and a federal government poised to step in and make things right. Too bad the feds have to get involved, but needs must.

Except marriage is not a right, it's a privilige. It's a business contract first and foremost. BY THE POWER VESTED IN ME BY THE STATE OF ... a legal power extended to Church.
If they really wanted to "hit it" they should focus on it as a "church/state" issure.
Any state can dictate which business partnerships are legal and which are not.PERIOD!!!

I noticed what one editoral from NY Daily News did to change Elliot Spitzers mind on same sex marriage.

It may have already cost him a chance to win as governor of NY.

SCOTUS striking down that ticked me off, but not near as much as these Coast-to-Coast Vigilantes that are acting as Judge, Jury and Perversion Enablers handing out same sex marriage licenses as if God took the year off and put them in charge or something.

I'll await this hypocrite's impassioned pleas to return Judge Moore to the bench. After all, lets not have a heavy hand on this matter that we all can disagree on.

Not.

It might be goofy, it may not be my opinion on the subject BUT if you look into the history of marriage, it's considered a privilege which is why you need a license to do it AND the following groups have or have not been allowed to marry in the USA:
1st cousins may marry in 38 states There was a time when the following groups were not allowed to marry in the USA:
Jews and Gentiles
Blacks and Whites
Epilepticss

History? You mean like the last 10,000 years? That kind of history?

You are confused, common law marriage is legal because it's a fact, not because they want it that way. The state may point a gun at you and tell you it's a privilege, but that doesn't make it so.

I don't need any government clerk or lawmaker to tell me if I'm married or not. I'm married because of promises I made before God, not some legal nonsense the government does.

This whole thing is about money.

Maybe it's moving that way because authorizing them IS CRIMINAL?

Excuse me? Did you not hear me the first time, or are you just stupid?

1. Some states don't recognize common law marriage.
2. The states that do recognize "common-law" marriage have varied times for couples to be considered as married.
3. I personally couldn't care less what laws you choose or choose not to recognize or whatever jurisdiction you answer to really has no impact on me. Have a blast.
4. The information I provided is accurate:
History? You mean like the last 10,000 years? That kind of history?
Is hyperbole.
Have a pleasant day.

What do you mean, goofy? It is the absolute truth. Do you make no distinction between a right and a priviledge?

I make a precise distinction, and getting married is a right as far as government is concerned.

That government (and others) violate rights and in some cases claim that things are privileges granted by them is beside the point. They are incorrect.

If government says tomorrow that people can marry dogs, it will not be true no matter what law they pass.

If they say murder is acceptable, it still won't be. They say it's OK to murder babies right now, but that don't make it so.

Rights do not flow from governments, I hope that explains it.

The state provides a licence to drive a car. You do not have the 'right' to drive if you don't pass the test, buy insurance, etc. likewise with sanctioned marriage. You must first obtain a licence, which you cannot get if you don't meet certain criteria. These things are priviledges, not rights. You have the right to apply for the licence, which will grant you the priviledge.
You are correct that rights do not flow from government. If one must obtain a licence to engage in an activity, that activity is a priviledge. Priviledges are earned, rights are inherent.

Correct, with exception for private property.

likewise with GOVERNMENT sanctioned marriage.

The word "sanctioned" makes this somewhat correct.

However the main point is that it is a false comparison. Driving on government property is a priviledge granted by the property owner, in this case the government. The government has no ownership of the relationship of marriage.

The government sets up rules under which THEY will recognize relationships. They don't matter outside of that arena.

Marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman for which God's blessings have been asked. Government thugs have no place in that. They are irrelevant to real marriage.

Anyone who gets married in the above manner is truly married no matter what government thinks.

In as much as it relates to government, Marriage is a right, not a privilege.

In as much as it relates to God, it is a privilege, not a right.
