Skip to comments.Why gay marriage is inevitable (The war is all but over, even as the battle continues)

The year 2012 is shaping up as a big one for same-sex marriage. Last week, the Washington state Legislature passed a bill allowing gay marriage, and legislatures in Maryland and New Jersey may follow suit shortly (though New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has promised a veto). North Carolina and Minnesota are conducting referendums this year on constitutional amendments to bar gay marriage, and Maine is likely to conduct a referendum on legalizing it.
On Tuesday, the U.S. 9th Court of Appeals reminded us that courts too have something to say on the subject. In a case challenging the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8, that court ruled in favor of gay marriage. Because its ruling was so narrow that it may not be applicable outside California, theU.S. Supreme Court may decide not to review this decision. Eventually, though, the Supreme Court will take a gay marriage case. How might the justices decide it when they do?
As recently as seven or eight years ago, there might not have been a single justice prepared to declare a federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage. Opinion polls then showed that Americans opposed gay marriage by a 2-1 margin, and a Massachusetts court decision declaring a right to gay marriage under the state constitution produced an enormous political backlash in 2004, with 13 states enacting constitutional bans. Even liberal justices such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg andStephen G. Breyer, who probably sympathize with gay marriage, might well have been wary of venturing too far in advance of public opinion and stoking further political backlash.
The situation has since changed dramatically. Opinion polls now consistently show that a slender majority of Americans support gay marriage. State supreme courts in California, Connecticut and Iowa have ruled in its favor, and legislatures in five states have enacted gay-marriage statutes.

Next will be marry your Pet. Incredible! 5000 years of culture down the drain.
How many states would have queer marriage if it were left up to the people and courts didn't legislate.
Plus the 9th circuit is one huge joke.
They already married some idiot with a building in Seattle so we’re getting there..
Women have lost their “equal rights” and don’t yet know it.
It is sickening, and the country's courts and leaders who allow it are sickening.
If homosexuality is legitimized in that sense, then it won’t be long before criticism of it will be criminalized; because people will always voice criticism of something that’s wrong.
Why gay marriage is inevitable??
Africa, China and the ME will never accept it, so if the West wants to kill itself, so be it.
Looks to me like within three and a half years to four years.
Time feels short.
I am predicting a big earthquake in Washington State soon.
My bet too!
Look, let's say we get the Presidency, the House and the Senate ~ time to FIX the 9th.
I say send them to Fairbanks.
Similarly, there are no "health" benefits associated with the taking of birth control pills. This argument Obama has created is simply an attack on religion.
Coming soon - threesomes, quartets, ...n, n+1,.....”marrying”. But....God is not mocked..
Actually the battle is over because it will never be won. The public will NEVER consider homosexuals married. After homosexuals went with the “nice” term gay to describe themselves, gay became an insult among kids. That should tell you all you need to know about what will or will not happen no matter what the government defines.
People think you are married when a man and a woman join in union. The public will probably never consider two same sex people married.
So is the eventual destruction of American, but we shouldn’t be gleeful about it.
It is not inevitable. But it will lead to plural marriage and chaos - a consequence of weakening marriage. This can be concluded from the so-called Russian Experiment of the late 1930s and early 1940s where the communists set a plan to destroy the major institutions, among them the family and religion. The consequences were so devastating that they had to reverse their attacks on the traditional family.
Its not about ‘marriage’, they don’t want ‘marriage’ they want government enforced approval of their abnormal lifestyle.
It will be the “New Black” and covered by all the Civil Rights laws and associated Bureaucracy and taught in schools.
