Rush Limbaugh: Same-sex marriage will be legal nationwide By Chris Moody, Yahoo! News | The Ticket 57 mins ago
On his radio program on Wednesday, conservative host Rush Limbaugh predicted that same-sex marriage would eventually be made legal "nationwide," regardless of how the Supreme Court rules in cases on the subject later this year.
From the show transcript:
A lot of people have no personal animus against gay people at all. It's instead, you know, a genuine, I don't know, love/respect for the things they believe define this country as great. They get up every day and they see all this stuff under attack. They see it all under assault. And I think they're just worried about the survivability of the country. And to which the opponents say, "Well, the country's changing and you better get with it and understand it because this genie's not getting put back in the bottle." And I think that's right. I don't care what this court does with this particular ruling, Proposition 8. I think the inertia is clearly moving in the direction that there is going to be gay marriage at some point nationwide.
Shifting public opinion on legalized same-sex marriage would pose significant problems for the Republican Party, which relies heavily on a large voting base of social conservatives who could abandon the GOP if the party abandons its opposition. The official platform of the Republican Party still calls for a constitutional amendment that would restrict marriage to one man and one woman.
Limbaugh, who's unsure of what would happen to the party if it changes its position, also said:

DOMA only needs 40 stated to be overridden per its own language.
After the Obamacare ruling, I do expect anything good to come out of this SCOTUS. If I am pleasantly surprised by a ruling coming from this Court....great. But I am not counting on it.
How long before I can marry my wife’s sister and her daughter? Hey forget about North Korea, when obammma comes back from his vacation, he’ll apologize to N.K. and bow down to Dunghungloe or whatever his name is and then off to the vinyard for a well deserved break
True, but even if repealed DOMA doesn't have any effect on whether a state can ban gay marriage or not, all DOMA does is prevent federal recogniton (and benefits) to gay couples in the states that do recognize it.
None of this should even be debated on Capitol Hill. This is a state’s rights issue. If California wants to be the new Sodom, and Massachusetts the new Gommorah, then let them. The Feds should not be into this issue. This is a slippery slope into continued Federal overreach.
Our Founders are pissed.
So when the fags finally get marriage will they finally shut the f### up?
Which states need super majorities to repeal their amendments? We are talking about the popular vote amendments or the the ones passed by the legislature or doesn’t that matter?
I’m thinking Louisiana won’t follow the Sodom course as well.
all pedophiles should burn for all eternity
does anyone disagree with that? of course... the left.
California voted against fags marrying.
True..it will be up to the states completely and I don’t see most changing their stances anytime soon.
But the courts and the state government won’t uphold it or defend the people.
>>So when the fags finally get marriage will they finally shut the f### up?
No, they’ll ask your church to marry them and then imprison your pastor for refusing.
And it only gets worse from there.
Once this wall falls, so does EVERY other. When a civil right, that is a statue created by man and trump a natural right, that is an endowment from God, no natural right is safe.
This is the last wall. Once breached. The entire game of Western Civilization is over.
Prepare for a dark dark age.
We started down this long and weary road in 1970, when Ronald Reagan signed no fault divorce into law in California. Before that, marriage was indeed viewed as sacred, special, and important. Now it is simply a social contract that arguably anyone can enter into and out of with impunity and without cause or reason.
Yes, by the millions.
Hey, RINO’s: try to win a national election without us.
Sadly I have come to the same conclusion as Rush.
Only one side showed up for this PR battle (public opinion) and of course Obama got two SCOTUS picks, Kennedy is with them on the issue.
