The Confusion of the Supreme Court ^ | June 27, 2013 | Joseph Backholm

By now you know that the Supreme Court struck down section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in the case United States v. Windsor.

While this was one small step for the Supreme Court, it represents one giant leap for make-it-up-as-you-go judicial decisions and exposes the fact that the Supreme Court is not inoculated from the hyper-political, cultural debate surrounding marriage.

Proponents of natural marriage feared that the Supreme Court would issue a Roe v. Wade of marriage by declaring a constitutional right to marry someone of the same gender and removing the debate from the political process. In some ways, however, this case could be worse than Roe because of its incoherence.

So what? You are going to defend this imbecile of a Chief Justice?

It was safe for Roberts to dissent. He knew Kennedy would strike DOMA down.

Why in the world do senators, who represent their states, consent to so many judicial nominees who are hostile to the states and the constitution?

Because too many senators are liberal, and do not see the world and their functions the same way most of here see it. They don’t think about representing their states, they think about representing liberal theology instead.

Will this ruling galvanize conservatives to organize like the pro-life movement coalesced after Roe V. Wade?

Sodomite Anderson Blooper just interviewed Robert’s dyke 1st cousin and her “partner”. She said she was really disappointed in her cousin’s ruling and that she thought he would side with the liberals on DOMA. She said they had had many discussions and he has “evolved” in his thinking. OF course sodomite Blooper immediately said “well you know that eventually he will get a case on the constitutionality of marriage nation-wide, do you by think he will change his mind”. Blooper was grinning ear-to-ear the whole time he was talking to these two plain jane cropped hair no makeup, plain white shirt dykes. I feel like throwing my beer through the TV screen. Never thought I would live to see the day that the country was taken over by queers. We are truly in our final days. Repent now if you need too. The Lord is coming soon.
