Get ready for more cultural destruction.
We already know how Sotomayor and Kagan will vote.
Prediction: SCOTUS will sell-out America again. Gay will become the law of the land.
I fully expect that the POTUS will declare both DOMA and prop 8 unconstitutional and that homosexual marriage will be the law of the land with all states forced to recognize homosexual marriage as equal to heterosexual marriage
this will also make same sex spouses eligible for benefits of federally employed spouses...including the military
ladies and gentleman the financial benefits have been the goal all along
Considering this issue could made Chief Justice Roberts uncomfortable at DC parties, we know how he will be ruling or “helping out” the arguments.
Well, at least we’ll have the gay issues put to bed, so to speak. We’ll know if the people actually have the right to decide what laws they will live under or if the law will be what the aristocrats and oligarchs decide it will be and nothing else, the people’s opinons as expressed through referenda or their legislatures notwithstanding.
I wouldn’t be shocked at all if they pass fruitcake marriage and make it legal. Nothing the Supreme Court does surprises me anymore. After Roberts showed what a douche bag he is nothing they do would shock me
I guess we can count of Roberts saying it will be a grand idea that homos marry.
They are entitled to "live together" as homos....being the same right shared by unmarried heteros. That's where the equality lies and the only logic I can see.
Marriage is man and woman.
IIRC, 7 of the Justices are Catholic.
I really hate to see anything of importance going to the Supreme Court these days now that the court has three distinct factions: 4 liberals, 4 conservatives, and 1 moron.
Bad news as the SCOTUS may rule against Prop 8 and strike down all such laws and constitutional amendments in the states.
By the way, I wonder if Kagan and Roberts will recuse themselves.
Prediction: Justice Roberts will vote with the seat of his pants.
Thank you most wonderful Sidebar! :)
I see nothing in the previous jurisprudence that shows this will be anything other than a 5-4 vote overturning the lower courts and upholding the laws. Roberts/Scalia/Thomas/Kennedy/Alito will stick together on this one. The four others will too but will be in the minority — for now.
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.
what a friggin few years we have had!
this should be Roberts opportunity to come out
