The Supreme Court will take up California's ban on same-sex marriage, a case that could give the justices the chance to rule on whether gay Americans have the same constitutional right to marry as heterosexuals.

This way, they can make every state recognize their abomination, not just California.
IMHO, only churches should have the right to “wed” people (a man and a woman). The State should give civil union licenses, instead. That’s just my opinion.
Rumor has it that Sidebar is an expert in Jedi Mind Tricks.
That is a scary thought.
We’d still end up with the same issues regarding benefits.
That will never happen, even if SCOTUS holds there is a constitutional right to gay marriage. No case has ever required a Catholic priest to marry someone who has a civil divorce but not a church annulment. No case has ever required an orthodox Rabbi to marry a Jew and a non-Jew. If there is a right to gay marriage, it is a right to a civil marriage and to a marriage in any church willing to do it.
The same would be true of any religious person who has a bakery or a photography business, etc. They will be accused of discrimination and this will open the door to all kinds of lawsuits.
That is a different issue. A few states have already had lawsuits on that basis, where state civil rights laws forbid discrimination against gays in "public accommodations." I think those cases are wrong, but your fear is much more likely to materialize there.
what a friggin few years we have had!
Well looks like all states will have to follow the upcoming Supreme Court ruling so I think gay couples and straight couples should be granted civil union licenses. If a civil union doesn’t work out, then the state can dissolve it. Marriage, however, should belong to the realm of the Church. That way, we can still defend marriage.
this should be Roberts opportunity to come out
The right of churches to “opt out” has been destroyed via healthcare.
The road to hell has been carefully and deviously paved by liberals.
Thank you! And Merry Christmas to you and yours!
I think what they will point out...is that only states can legislate this kind of stuff...Congress and the Senate can’t. And everyone will stand there in some agreement.
On what basis are they recused?
The Stool Pushers Union are all in for this one.
I still thought the Sidecar Mod fell off a ship somewhere.
The same basis a fox judge should not be in charge of a court that rules on whether foxes should be legally able to eat chickens.
Look at the military...They just had their first gay wedding....disgusting....
