Typical 9th Circus.
Remember when it was supposed to be one person, one vote? Now it’s one judge, one vote; the others don’t count.
Why do they even have voting in California anymore?
The 9th Circuit is a FEDERAL court, not a "California" court.
Furthermore, the California Supreme Court ruled that Prop 8 IS constitutional.
So, the state ruled it constitutional, and the federal courts overruled it.
I am sick of abject Judicial activism.
I am sick of liberals extending natural rights, given from God and enumerated in the Constitution, to behavior and ideology to advance their own causes and inclinations...and in an effort to overthrow the constitution to which they swore an oath to faithfully uphold and defend.
The American people, to avoid the hell of chaos and downfall and implosion such trends will inevitably lead to, simply must throw off the political class that has encumbered us and elect American statemen to office who revere and will hold inviolate the fundmanetal moral values upon which this nation and its constitution was founded.
And those are Christian principles and have defined the very reason why America has been so tolerant of so many who have come to these shores. but when those here want that tolerance to extend to the destruction of what has kept the peace, made us free, defined our prosperity and strength as a nation, that we cannot, nay we MUST not tolerate, but fight with every resource at our disposal.
America at the Crossroads of History
I have actually read the Constitution and the Federalist papers. I don’t remember marriage being discussed. Maybe they’re talking about the equal protection clause. If that is the case then that doesn’t make any sense either. All homosexuals of adult age are allowed to get married with very few exceptions. They cannot presently be married, and they have to marry someone of the opposite sex. We have the exact same privledges.
Newt Gingrich...pick up the white courtesy phone, please...
Can you imagine these twisted, diseased judges arguing their case before G-d Almighty?
What a simplistic, reductio ad absurdum rebuttal. Is the institution of marriage nothing more than an attempt to elevate or increase the status and human dignity of heterosexuals? Or is it much, much more -- namely a cornerstone of our civilization that has been extant in some form for all of recorded history?
Much more rests on the institution of marriage than mere social status or some vague sense of "dignity." If this is the level of logic this court develops in its opinions, it is less a court than a court jester.
This decision was already in the word processor two years ago. They just needed proof of the money transfer.
“Calif. court declares Prop 8 unconstitutional”
This is the case that will end up in the Supreme Court.
It will be all up to Anthony Kennedy
No way to predict the final outcome as of yet...
This may end up to become the “Roe v. Wade” of homosexuality.
They’ll never let the People have a say. It’s time for the People start ignoring these elites and their armed dogs.
We have long ceased to be a nation whose foundation is based on Judeo-Christian principles.
One can’t think of anything deviant that will not be acceptable by the Court.
Ninth Circus, most overturned court in the U.S.
I look at this measure as a way to authorize 5 wives by the back door.
This is a bit off-topic, but I recall decades ago that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals was grossly understaffed based on its allotted number of jurists.
At that time, the hypothesis was broached that the Ninth Circuit sought to keep its numbers small so they could continue to hand down inane decisions similar to the one highlighted in this post.
I noticed the Court ruled 2 to 1. Does anyone know how many justices are currently on the 9th Circuit and how many justices should be seated on that court to place the court at full strength?
By the way, I got over being astonished, surprized, disgusted etc. by 9th Circuit rulings many years ago. The lunacy of the justices is transparent.
Round them all up!
