Posted on 01/14/2014 2:33:09 PM PST by BurningOak
Today U.S. District Judge Terence Kern ruled that Oklahomas ban on marriage equality is unconstitutional. His ruling is stayed pending appeal, meaning marriages will not occur immediately in the Sooner State.
The ruling comes on the heels of a year-long string of electoral, judicial and legislative victories for marriage equality. In recent weeks both the New Mexico Supreme Court and a federal district judge in Utah have ruled in favor of marriage for lesbian and gay couples.

Oklahoma judge legalizes same sex marriage in the state. Ruling on hold pending appeal. Same story as Utah, liberal judge forces homosexual marriage on a conservative state and issue goes to appeal and onto Supreme Court. The Kennedy decision in Windsor case this summer emboldened the judiciary around the nation to overturn the marriage protections in state constitutions. If forced to make a decision, current Supreme Court will likely legalize gay marriage nationally.
God is still in control.
So is Texas next or Arizona?
It is going to be decided nationally one way or another, state Constitutions are merely toilet paper to federal judges.
That would depend; where are there pending lawsuits in Federal Court?
Is there a site tracking that?
One of the reasons I truly, truly am looking at secession as being the only recourse left.
Oklahoma may have to become the firewall of Gay Marriage and thus we must make sure that the states more conservative than Oklahoma continue to protect traditional marriage.
That's what I'm afraid of.
time to start making imperial judges disappear
Good question. I have no idea, to be honest.
The article says federal district judge. The sodomites always go to the profligate federal courts first, now.
I’ll look around later.
Notice the abuse of language. Marriage has always been between man and woman. The language twisters alter the meaning of the word and then claim there is “inequality” because their altered meaning is not in force. Altering the meaning of words is how the left re-frames an issue. Don’t let them get away with it.
“Two plaintiff couples, Mary Bishop and Sharon Baldwin and Gay Phillips and Susan Barton,”
You got to love the plaintiffs names: we have a Mary, a Gay and a Bishop.
Traditional marriage is illegal in all 50 states.
Louisiana tried to offer "almost traditional" marriage, as an option, and it was ruled unconstitutional and contrary to public policy.
If you notice, they’re striking the conservative heartland and most religious states first, just to be wickedly spitefully.
All it takes is one judge apparently, the voice of the people matters not
Secession means armed revolution against the federal government. It means canyons filled with corpses and large parts of the nation turning into Syria or Somalia. I just can’t see it happening in this day and age, the average person is living well on some kind of federal subsidy, they aren’t going to cut off their own paycheck.
The solution is to just not heed the judge’s ruling
Queers that think they are married should be sternly advised to move to California
“ban on marriage equality”
Well, when you put it that way, it sounds pretty bad, doesn’t it? Gotta love the typical leftist manipulation of language.
