Just another opportunity for SCOTUS to stick a knife in the back of decent Americans. We might as well get used to it.
Kennedy horribly socially liberal. We know where this is headed.
But we don't know that that extends as far as marriage. We'll see.
If it’s Scalia vs. Kennedy then it’s over, right? Four lib’s plus Kennedy.
I stopped reading at that point. Anyone that thinks Kennedy is anything but a left tilted moderate has nothing intelligent to say.
Its not as if the Framers designed Scotus to be supreme among the branches; Congress has allowed and encouraged it.
Those that sustain a society are denied the protection of that society in favor of those that don't, and they return the sentiment.
He has the option to be seen by liberal historians as the man who wrote the majority opinion striking down gay marriage laws.
He can uphold Pro Family anti gay marriage laws until the next case comes before the SCOTUS when Obama will have two or three appointments to the Court.
The most scary aspect is that by January 20, 2017 the SCOTUS could have five of its nine justices appointed by Barack Obama.
This isn’t really about gay marriage as much as it’s about whether voters can vote a particular definition of marriage and then have it overturned by a court.
Isn’t that the case they took up?
Seems to me that there are plenty of gay marriage votes in other states that Kennedy has not seen fit to challenge, so it really isn’t about whether those are constitutional.
Is it possible for a court to overturn a properly held vote of the people? Am I wrong on this....that this is not that case?
Kennedy is not a libertarian. He’s a raving liberal.
Libertarians are passive on a lot of things, but he generally attempts not to permit but to enforce the liberal social agenda. He’s more conservative economically.
If this perversion is approved, there is little that won’t be allowed in the future.
If anyone thinks that the court will not rule that all gay marriages are all right is crazy. Why would they rule that society has a right to restrict this? They will never let the public decide for itself what society’s standards are to be. There are no more standards. This court will make it clear that the battle is over.
No pro-same-sex argument I can imagine would be exempt from use to justify polygamy.
In which case, it's all over but the crying. Kennedy will join with the liberal whackjobs and that will be 5 votes. Or 6, maybe, depending on if Roberts has a fight with his boyfriend or whatever.
