Sundance: Prop 8 lawyer wants gay marriage 'in all 50 states in five years'
Hollywood Reporter ^ | 1/18/2014 | Tatiana Siegel

PARK CITY -- The Sundance premiere for Ryan White and Ben Cotner's Proposition 8 documentary The Case Against 8 at Temple Theatre on Saturday afternoon drew one of the most enthusiastic audience responses of the festival to date. OUR EDITOR RECOMMENDS

Sundance at 30: Vintage Photos of Park City's Biggest Stars Lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies, who successfully fought to overturn California's Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage, were on hand for a Q&A that followed a sustained standing ovation after the film's credits rolled. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court. VIDEO: 5 Breakout Stars at this Year's Sundance Film Festival But the pair said the battle will continue as legislation and legal maneuvering is introduced in states that have not benefited from a Supreme Court ruling like California, where the High Court struck down the controversial proposition in June. "The goal is to have marriage equality in all 50 states in five years," Olson said. If you look at the progress that has been made since June, I think you can see that we are well on our way." Olson and Boies have joined a case that is pending in Virginia. "There will be a variety of processes," Olson said of the legal strategy moving forward. "You will see it in some states by legislation. You will see it in some states by a state court. And you will see it in states where it doesn't work in a federal court. We've seen it in a federal court here in Utah in the past couple of weeks."

A lot of websites insert the “crud” by using Java scripts. Best to disable Java on those websites if they do that.

Yes it is a benefit to have a bunch of men in black stomp all over your states right to govern itself.

Yes it is a great benefit to have a court rule that the constitution means something completely different than it meant yesterday and for the last 200 years.

Yes it is a great benefit that a bunch of robed Leftist can decide that the people of a state that they are totally wrong and should be treated like so many petulant children because they voted overwhelmingly not to have their culture and society altered in to something totally unrecognizable to please a tiny minority.

>> Putin’s looking better & better.

While Putin’s concern for sexual morality is seemingly attractive, he’s not completely on board with US Constitutional law. But it’s something he should consider...

Welcome to FR!

Ted Olsen is the idiot that forces his sense of fairness onto others; e.g., bakers, photographers, Churches, school children... In other words, he’s a scumbag.

To what shall we compare a generation that confuses emulation with reality and mistakes wishes for rights, as when it equates the lifelong blood relationship of marriage with multiple, temporary same-sex relationships, and then casts aspersions on those who insist on clear distinctions?

They are like a gaggle of disgruntled chess players, who, upon consistently losing the game, demand that all chess pieces be made equal, or that a king be made a queen, and then cast aspersions on those who point out the game would no longer be chess.

In this case, however, the argument is not with the World Chess Organization, but with the Creator, who made man in His own image, made them male and female from the beginning, and blessed them and said to them, “be fruitful and multiply.”

DATELINE 5/9/12 HUFF/POST---Nancy Pelosi sent out an appeal on behalf of the DCCC--another of the Demoncrats' fund-raising tentacles: "Isn't it great? President Obama just announced (in 2012)that he supports marriage equality for all Americans......We must continue to fight - in the courts, in state legislatures, and in Congress - until all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans are guaranteed fair treatment in our country. Add your name right now to stand with President Obama in support of marriage equality."

REFERENCE---Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals
http://www.greeleygazette.com/press/?p=11517
July 27, 2013 | by Jack Minor
FR Posted Friday, August 02, 2013 by coldphoenix

Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.

Critics of the homosexual lifestyle have long claimed that once it became acceptable to identify homosexuality as simply an “alternative lifestyle” or sexual orientation, logically nothing would be off limits.

“Gay” advocates have taken offense at such a position insisting this would never happen. However, psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined several years ago.

more at greeleygazette.com

=================================================

BE VERY VERY AWARE...perverts come in all shapes and sizes--- and are very persuasive. Single mothers with young children are warned that these lowlife pedophiles will do anything---even marry the mothers---to get ahold of the kids.

CASE IN POINT One TV segment aired a mom in despair---her child kept telling her that the new hubby was molesting her. But the mom refused to believe her charming, lovable husband was a perv.....til it was too late.

CASE IN POINT Carrie Fisher writes about Debbie Reynold's 2nd husband Harry Karl walking around w/ no underwear....flashing his genitals to the youngsters (probably getting a thrill).

Debbie was completely oblivious----she, herself, tells how Karl courted her assiduously---and showed inordinate attention to her two youngsters....which convinced her to accept his marriage proposal.

But Harry Karl was a lowlife of the first order---stole all Debbie's money and her jewelry. The marriage failed ---Debbie had to sleep in her car---Karl walked away with all her money.

No reports yet about the Fisher kids being molested---but kids tend to block out these horrendous experiences.

CASE IN POINT One of the most celebrated Hollywood figures was George Jessel---who married a very young girl when he was at an advanced age (among his several wives).

In her autobio, Shirley Temple recalled that pedophile Jessel exposed himself to her when she was a child star.

I want gay marriage in the states that vote for it, and only in those.

The real question in that case is — what does the federal government do with regard to immigration, veteran’s benefits and so on?

Follow the majority of the states? Follow the majority of the population?

What you stated is why marriage must forever be between a man and a woman. It can never work. Perhaps some of our states should be allowed to leave this decaying satanic federation... I want no part of mocking GOD.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”

I FREELY EXERCISE THAT GOD DEFINES MARRIAGE AND I WILL EXERCISE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO RECOGNIZE A satanic CONTRACT BETWEEN DAMNED SOULS.

Ephesians 5:25-32

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,

Leviticus 18:22

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

Genesis 2:18-25

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.

Matthew 19:1-30

Now when Jesus had finished these sayings, he went away from Galilee and entered the region of Judea beyond the Jordan. And large crowds followed him, and he healed them there. And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?” He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?

Ephesians 5:31

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”

Genesis 2:24

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Ephesians 5:31-32

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.

Hebrews 13:4

Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

Ephesians 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,

1 Corinthians 7:1-16

Now concerning the matters about which you wrote: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

Matthew 19:4-5

He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?

1 Corinthians 6:9

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,

Deuteronomy 22:13-21

“If any man takes a wife and goes in to her and then hates her and accuses her of misconduct and brings a bad name upon her, saying, ‘I took this woman, and when I came near her, I did not find in her evidence of virginity,’ then the father of the young woman and her mother shall take and bring out the evidence of her virginity to the elders of the city in the gate. And the father of the young woman shall say to the elders, ‘I gave my daughter to this man to marry, and he hates her; and behold, he has accused her of misconduct, saying, “I did not find in your daughter evidence of virginity.” And yet this is the evidence of my daughter’s virginity.’ And they shall spread the cloak before the elders of the city.

Ephesians 5:22-33

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,

Genesis 2:23

Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

Genesis 2:18

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”

Like history being written by the victors, so to will determination of crazy and normal be written by the victors of this social war. It's time. We must answer this abomination with all out marshaling of our forces, or face assimilation by the Marxist/pervert block. It may already be too late for the Western Europeans. As nature abhors a vacuum, it appears those folks in those nations will succumb to the morality they may find in Islam rather than succumb to the perversion of formerly Western European Christianity.

We need to act sooner rather than later.

He was good in Jeremiah and Butch & Sundance. Both movies excellent. Both he, newman and commie fag Will Geer are reprehensible but are in the majority in hollyweird.

Like music and other “arts”, you will find a majority of leftist and perverted losers. I self edit what I watch/listen to, to a point. But I must say that certain classic pieces from lefty Willie Nelson’s “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” to some of The Beatles middle period, to the movies already discussed, are in my view, GREAT and I will guiltily continue to be entertained by them. I do limit and block the mediocre in those industries, and all those that preach directly against what is moral and good

Pretty much as I see it also. Let me just say one thing... "The Outlaw Josey Wales"... only Eastwood could have pulled that off perfectly... The Duke in "True Grit"... the only man that could have pulled it off perfectly... proved recently. Bogey in "Casablanca"... not even arguable.

"Jeremiah Johnson" could have been played by someone else... possibly even better. I just have never thought that crater face was a good actor. Newman, another man that I despise, was a great thespian. I'll give him his due respect for his abilities. redford reminds my of some high school drama queen that became successful... like miley cyrus has become "successful".

Agreed.

Bogey was a leftist Dhimmicrat to a point. He drank the hollyweird Koolaid. Though I do believe he was more of a real man than his hollyweird friends would have liked.

The "Gay Marriage Advocate Lawyer's" plan is easy -- easy -- easy ---


The Sodomites don't need to spend all that $$$ on fifty-seven (57) individual state referendums ...


They just need to find eight (8) corrupt, blackmailable Federal District judges ... into whose courts they will "steer" the lawsuits into.


"The will of the American people" be DAMNED ...




This is precisely "why" the Democrats, MSM, Karl Rove and Mitt Romney "pooped their pants" (for the children in the audience) ...


when Newt Gingrich suggested that we (in the 21st century) follow Thomas Jefferson's and James Madison's 1800 example ...


with a "constitutionally approved" FIRING OF CORRUPT FEDERAL JUDGES.





============= Today's American Judicial History Lesson ==============


The Democratic-Republicans (originally called anti-Federalists) held the majority in Congress under the new Jefferson administration, and soon repealed the Judiciary Act, effectively terminating the new judges to prevent the Federalists from gaining more control of the judiciary.



This was the only way Congress could legitimately get rid of Article III federal judges, who are entitled to serve lifetime commissions unless they commit impeachable offenses.


The old Congress passed another act during its lame duck session, The Organic Act of the District of Columbia of 1801, which established Washington, DC, as an independent federal territory.


One provision of the legislation was that President Adams could appoint an unspecified number of justices of the peace, low-level judicial workers, to serve the needs of the newly incorporated District of Columbia.


Two days before leaving office, President Adams nominated 42 Federalists to fill these positions (these men later became known as the "Midnight Judges").


The Senate approved the nominations the day before Adams' administration ended, and John Marshall, then Secretary of State (and Supreme Court Chief Justice, as of February 1801) stayed late recording and sealing the commissions.


Unfortunately, he was unable to deliver them before Thomas Jefferson took office.

Jefferson found the undelivered commissions sitting on a desk in the Secretary of State's office, and decided 42 justices of the peace was entirely too many.

He immediately eliminated twelve positions, then appointed members of his own party to five of the remaining thirty judgeships.


Four of the seventeen men who lost their opportunities filed suit in the US Supreme Court in an effort to compel Secretary of State James Madison to deliver their commissions so they could take office. This lead to the landmark case Marbury v. Madison, (1803).
