LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A federal judge has given Kentucky until March 20 to implement his order granting legal recognition to same-sex couples married in other states.

U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II issued the order on Friday. As of March 20, the state must begin providing name changes, adoption forms listing both members of a same-sex couple as parents and other benefits of legal marriage.

Judicial tyranny continues. We need a Ukraine style uprising, but with more guns.

The states should say NO

Judges were never given the power to make laws!

I don’t know how we got to this point where nothing is ever over.

Here in Michigan we’re waiting on black robed gods to tell us if things we voted on a decade ago are OK.

Where does a federal court get jurisdiction over a state-licensed privilege? Marriage is no more a civil-rights issue then a drivers license is a civil-rights’ issue...

THE CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL STATES THAT SODOMY IS DEADLY. THE AMERICAN RED CROSS PROHIBITS SODOMITES FROM DONATING BLOOD! The State of Kentucky should tell this judge to stuff it! The State should hold the line that it will not participate in advancing sexual lifestyles that are detrimental to public safety!

May the judicial tyrant find as much success in that as the gun registration commandants in Connecticut.

Can’t anyone get an indefinite stay on this judicial tyranny pending an appeal? I thought Kentucky was a conservative state!

Somehow, the use of the abbreviation for Kentucky seems especially appropriate in this story😳

I stand with the Honorable Roy S.Moore of Alabama— what these Federal Judges are doing is a TRAVESTY!Mark R.Levin also on KNZZ AM 1100 2/14/14 similar sentiments. And with Senators Mike Lee— and Ted Cruz—similar sentiments. Even with the error made by the majority on the Court striking down a section of DOMA they expected the Federal Government to respect the Primacy of the States to define Marriage. The Federal Government(and that includes Judges has NO authority to tell the States how they may -or may not define Marriage.
If one State recognizes the FRAUD of Same Sex Marriage—and another does NOT The Federal Government has NO authority to force the States to accept same se marriage.

As mentioned in another Kentucky thread, an argument that I am not hearing from institutionally-indoctrinated state attornies who are trying to fight pro-gay judicial activism is the following. The states have never amended the Constitution to expressly protect so-called gay rights. So the states are free to make laws which discriminate on the basis of gay issues, imo, as long as such laws don't also unreasonably abridge constitutionally enumerated rights.

Also note that, regardless of media distortions of the Supreme Court's decision concerning the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Section 2 of DOMA is evidently still in effect. Section 2 is actually a bona-fide example of Congress's constitutional Article IV, Section 1 power to decide the effect of acts and records of one state in the other states.

Section 2. Powers reserved to the states

No State, territory, or possession of the United States, or Indian tribe, shall be required to give effect to any public act, record, or judicial proceeding of any other State, territory, possession, or tribe respecting a relationship between persons of the same sex that is treated as a marriage under the laws of such other State, territory, possession, or tribe, or a right or claim arising from such relationship.

Section 2 of DOMA is further evidence that the activist judge who decided against Kentucky's gay marriage ban is abusing judicial powers imo.

Also, I think that patriots need to work with their federal lawmakers to require federal judges to reference specific constitutional clauses in their official decisions to substantiate their decisions. In other words, no more PC decisions expressed by activist justices merely as "constitutional" and "unconstitutional" as the judge has evidently done in this case.

Finally, the real problem with why activist judges are not respecting state sovereignty is the following imo. Sadly, parents are not making sure that their children are being taught the federal government's constitutionally limited powers, particularly the 10th Amendment. Consequently, widespread ignorance of these things makes it easy for activist judges to wrongly legislate things like so-called gay "rights" from the bench.

Our Attorney General is a liberal Democrat as well as the governor and especially the Speaker of the House.

That is exactly how we need to frame it in our debates/arguments with the other side. Homo marriage isn't about civil rights...they already have the right to get married -- just find someone of the opposite sex and marry him or her. After all, that is what marriage has always meant in civilized Western society.

What they want is to redefine the word, and that's what we can't let them do.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

They get jurisdiction as Federal law is paramount and this was declared unconstitutional. (That is just an explanation and NOT an endorsement at ALL of the decision.)

I read a lot and there is a misconception that the 10th Amendment says State law is paramount. It isn’t. Only those laws “not enumerated” by the Constitution. And there are over 2 centuries of SCOTUS and State decisions even saying what those are. And it is pretty expansive.

And, again, I am not endorsing these decisions, just, as a retired Prosecutor, passing along an answer to the question.

Then my question becomes: over the centuries of SCOTUS decisions, where did they say that gay marriage is a "civil right"?

I was under the impression that, like Roe v. Wade that states could make their own laws, but under "guidelines".

Since its not a federal question the supremacy Claus does not apply. These cases have no more standing in a federal court then one involving driver’s licenses.

Screw the judge. They DO NOT write law. There is no disobedience because this jackball has exceeded its authority.

It is, or rather was, before their gov got caught with his hand in the cookie jar as the saying goes. The state then elected a demonrat to replace him. It has been going downhill every since. Especially in Louisville.

I pray for beloved KY, that you good people down there are able to get rid of these gangsters that weaseled their way into the govt. there. I know there are progressive people eager to have their hand out to gov. but most of the people of KY are wonderful hard working salt of the earth. I pray for you all!
