The entire issue that there can be same sex marriage is a red herring to break church doctrine.

They can legislate civil unions all day long, but marriage is a sacrament of the Church.

These two are not going to turn out well.

Hope I’m wrong.

I think SCOTUS will “86” DOMA within states that allow gay marriage - and take a pass on the Prop 8 case at this time.

That is, SCOTUS will rule that federal benefits will be given to gay couples in states that allow gay marriage. And, SCOTUS will overturn lower federal court rulings on Prop 8 and leave it intact - since it was PROPERLY voted on by the residents of CA.

The upshot will be a ruling that “marriage” is an institution controlled by the states - and in states that allow it, federal benefits have to be conferred to gay couples.

However, in states that allow gay marriage, religious institutions WILL NOT be required to perform gay wedding services [if they object].

All I will say is that if I were a polygamist or a zoophile, I would have an airtight case for recognition, that is if our court rules homosexual ‘marriage’ a right. There is no justification not to expand it further. Kennedy is with the rats this time, and Roberts may jump.

How shocking that only 5 years ago Prop 8 was passed in California. It would probably get under 40% of the vote today. It was like the last moral fiber in the state snapped after passage in 2008...

The supreme court is about as useful as a washboard in a muddy river full of sludge.

This is sad that it has come to this. Marriage is between a man and woman. We wouldn’t have the two sexes if it wasn’t. It should be that simple.

I don't believe it's anybody's business who I marry.
(or how many I marry).

Imo, marriage should not be used as a propaganda tool to advance anyone's agenda.

Not much time left, in theory. It almost feels like everyone’s holding their collective breath.

Final prediction: DOMA’s going down in flames (pun intended). 6-3, which the press will breathlessly label as “sweeping” and “decisive,” barely concealing their joy.

How Satanic of a decision can you get ?
This is what we get when we FAIL to OBEY God.
For it is written: Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Someone once asked The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE". And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

God has a cure for homosexuals.

The property damage and casualty insurers are going to take a beating once the inevitable natural disasters begin.

Please have mercy on us, Lord.
