Judge orders Ohio to recognize out-of-state gay ‘marriage’ despite state’s marriage amendment
Life Site News ^ | 7/23/13 | Ben Johnson

Posted on 07/25/2013 7:19:24 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

A U.S. district judge has ordered a clerk in the state of Ohio to recognize a same-sex “marriage” conducted in another state, because the state's constitutional amendment defining marriages does “likely violate the U.S. Constitution.”

U.S. District Magistrate Timothy Black declared in his opinion on Monday that the “purpose served by” the amendment in “treating same-sex married couples differently than opposite-sex married couples is the same improper purpose that failed in Windsor and in Romer: ‘to impose inequality’ and to make gay citizens unequal under the law.”

What a dork.

The people of Ohio have decided what is in their best interest, and NOWHERE in the U.S. Constitution is the "Rights of the States" pre-empted on this issue, whether the USSC agrees, or not.

Powers not Granted to the Federal Government are Retained by the States, jerkwad.

So at what point do states tell the feds to “eff off” and dare them to send in federal troops if they feel so strongly about it?

Who didn't see this coming... This is a VERY important development, and one the left has been planning for some time now.

It will be interesting to see if they try to keep it out of the news.

I am so sick of this crap imposed on us by illogical godless fools who do not have a lick of sense.

Homosexuals and heterosexuals are NOT equal and will NEVER BE equal.

Since two men or two women can NEVER conceive a child by their actions, can never propagate the species, whose physical actions are NOT love but lust, they are not and never will be equal.

This equality baloney being spewed by the senseless and illogical is just that, senseless and illogical.

God have mercy.

The proper response here would be for the state officials, led by the governor, to to tell this judge to take a hike. Idiot federal judges like this only have power because we all accept that they have power. As soon as we decide that they don’t, then they don’t. What are the feds going to do, send troops into Ohio? If I were the governor, I’d send a letter to the judge stating “Dear Sir, go f*** yourself.”

No one seems to be citing the Full Faith and Credit clause. Is it a weaker case than the Equal Protection approach that seems common in these recent decisions? Or is there something there that will put a stop to these end-arounds?

Time for states to start walking away from this now-failed experiment called the “united states.”

We are so screwed. We conservatives were not paying attention. I believe that the federal government will begin withholding federal funds from states that do not accept gay marriage. It has been done many times in the past with DUI and seat belts and even the confederate flag. We are so done unless like one our of FRiends said earlier...a revival. I sorta wished that we would have just made the tax code one percentage across the board so that the gays would not have needed gay marriage to lesson the taxes. The ONLY reason gay marriage is an epidemic is because of that one lesbian couple.....the woman died after they were together 40 years and she ended up having to pay 300 million in taxes where is she was married she didn’t pay a dime in taxes. Taxes are the root of all evil!!!!!!! lol.

Mark Levin outlined this. The SCOTUS knew EXACTLY what state activist judges would do when they made this decision.

So when someone from Kaliphornia demands that Ohio recognizes his marriage to his pet ewe, will this also “likely violate the U.S. Constitution” as well?

Let the States who are so inclined stop accepting any money from the Feds. Whether directly or indirectly it comes from the citizens anyway. I recall when the national speed limit was 55 and Montana’s legislature was going to opt out and raise their own limit. The bureaucracy and pols in Washington went nuts. They insisted that the state must take the money. Well, no we don’t.

Just Say No.

The judiciasl has no power over the executive, AFIK. If the Governor says "No" it is "No" unless the DOJ wants to try to arrest and incarcerate the Governor and all the militia that stands behind him.

(Just the thoughts of a citizen without portfolio)

It didn’t take a genius to know that there would not be islands of states where the marriages of GIs and federal employees and other couples and families relocating, would not be recognized.

The argument that the creation or non-creation of homosexual “marriage” was to be decided differently by blue and red states, was always a pro-gay marriage argument.

I believe that the federal government will begin withholding federal funds from states that do not accept gay marriage.

They don't even have to do that, the ACLU, lawsuits, the media, and sob stories will clear all that up.

States just do not maintain barriers against legal marriages for long.

""Common-law marriage in the United States can still be contracted in nine states (Alabama, Colorado, Kansas, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Iowa, Montana, Utah and Texas) and the District of Columbia. New Hampshire recognizes common-law marriage for purposes of probate only, and Utah recognizes common-law marriages only if they have been validated by a court or administrative order. Common-law marriage can no longer be contracted in 27 states, and was never permitted in 13 states.""

Nevertheless, all states — including those that have abolished the contract of common-law marriage within their boundaries — recognize common-law marriages lawfully contracted in those jurisdictions that permit it.

If California decides it doesn’t want to recognize my CCL, that is within their prerogative.
However, if Indiana decides it doesn’t want to recognize a ‘marriage’ between two men, that’s unconstitutional.
The first right falls within the 2nd amendment to the US Constitution while homosexual marriage has no precedent, other than obloquy and condemnation in Anglo-American jurisprudence.

Shirley Lee of Texas is trying to pass a bill that denies federal funding to States with ‘Stand your ground’ laws, due to her disappointment following the Zimmerman verdict, unless they rescind those laws.

This isn’t federalism. This is tyranny. We’re getting jobbed.

He’ll If the dark one and his holder can ignore the laws they don’t like and ignore the SC....then Ohio and other states have the right to do the same. Texas...you have that same right to ignore the dick-tator as well when the two tell you how we should allow every Tom Dick and Harry to mark their “X’ and vote.

No, threaten to cut off federal dollars. And since Ohio is one of those states that gets more in federal spending than it sends to Washington in the form of federal taxes, watch them cave in no time flat.

I don’t think the U.S. Constitution gives this black robed tyrant the authority to do this. It might be time to start putting some of these so called “judges” in jail.

What you do now is instantly appeal it. It might make its way to the SCOTUS again, but that’s the chance we take. At least then we will know exactly what a corrupt judicial system ours has become. Then it gets closer to rebellion time, doesn’t it.

They can withold Federal Funds when Ohioans likewise STOP SENDING FEDERAL TAXES to the tune of an equal amount cut off.

Use the "taxation without Representation Argument", or, "Those Powers not vested in the Federal Government and reserved for The States". There's no "Interstate Commerce" involved in States Rights to operate without interference (except in the minds of Agenda-Minded Judges).

Choosing a deviant lifestyle is NOT a "Marriage", in any sense of the word, and it is NOT in the best-interest of Society. Likewise, it is an "Un-Natural Act" that is the BASIS of it, and we are now forced to recognize its legitimacy?

Doesn't matter what Common Sense tells us; Progressives want to Dictate our conduct and thoughts.
