SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Thursday put on hold a federal judge's ruling that overturned Idaho's ban on gay marriage so it could consider motions for a longer stay, blocking same-sex nuptials a day before they would otherwise have been allowed.

We really must pray for this nation.
We must also be lights in this dark, dark world.
Judgment on this nation is due...Sodom and Gomorrah have nothing on America these last 50 years. We have, as a society, destroyed our families, murdered millions of unborn children, and now we are forcing perversion onto those who consider it abhorrent.
Pray. Grow in His Word. Live for Him.
It’s simply jaw-dropping how far America has fallen. Embracing evil and degeneracy at every turn.
America has become something of an “evil twin” of its former self. The opposite of everything it once stood for, and everything that made it great. If this country fully falls for this depravity of homo-marriage, it will confirm for me that that America’s end-game is finally in sight.
Hey, didn’t this judge get the memo? The courts are only supposed to support left wing causes that the majority of the taxpayers oppose.
I would look to a stse like Idsho to make a principled stand and refuse to comply.
Its a huge step but there are no federal marriage dollars like there were education dollars to entice compliance with desegration.
So when a state decides to tell the feds to pound sand,,,hmmm
So much of this is happening in every red state that is trying to uphold what used to be common morality that it makes me think there is a conspiracy within the judiciary. But that couldn’t be, could it?
Thats stAte and IdAho.
Stupid fingies....happens again and they will be severely chastized.
“Judgment on this nation is due...Sodom and Gomorrah have nothing on America these last 50 years.”
Yes we do... As I remember the scriptures relating to these negotiations, it came down to a “few” or a dozen righteous people. This country has tens of millions, maybe a hundreds million...
All you queers out there in line - just stay where you are until we figure this out.
“And you, Capernaum, will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will descend to Hades; for if the miracles had occurred in Sodom which occurred in you, it would have remained to this day. “Nevertheless I say to you that it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you.”
We, like Capernaum have had the blessings of Providence given to us in abundance; material, social, spiritual, you name it—America has been given the benefit of so much for several generations....we are not unlike the Canaanites who gave Molech their babies in the fire, the Sodomites who applauded perversion, and the Romans whose worship of pleasure and sex deteriorated their morality from the inside...the parallels are there, and we are repeating the history of these fallen civilizations.
Jerusalem, 568 BC? Maybe. God will spare a remnant of believers, but the only hope for this nation is a mighty revival, starting with Christ followers living their lives for Him and Him alone. And I am speaking as much to myself (or more) than anyone else.
It isn’t just the distance it has fallen, but the speed. When Obama ran in 2008, he refused to support homosexual marriage. Now, anyone who opposes it is too evil to allow to live!
Admittedly, it follows 50 years during which marriage ceased to be about what was good for kids and the next generation and turned instead into ‘what makes me happy’...but still! In 6 years, we’ve gone from where the Democrat running for President rejected homosexual marriage, to where everyone is expected to bow down and kiss their stained rears!
Here’s why we are in the state we are in: After 6 years many Federal judges have been appointed by the anti-Christian, homosexual-loving Muslim-in-chief. He has informed all these Federal judges to overturn any state’s constitutional bad on homosexual “marriage”. It makes no difference how this ban was enacted, whether by vote of the people or the state legislature. The Kenyan could care less about the will of the people. If the state does not have a democrat-appointed Federal judge they next go to the State Attorney General. If the state AG happens to be a democrats, there is a 99% chance he will come out and say the Constitutional ban on homosexual “marriage” will not be enforced. The way to end this madness is to NEVER ELECT A DEMOCRAT! They play follow the leader to whatever democrat president might be in office. Democrats do not have minds of their own. They are followers. They are anti-God, anti-Christian followers. The party of Satan.
If you would have told someone in 1984 that in 2014 20 states or so would have this thing called ‘gay marriage’ they would have called the guys in white jackets to capture you with big butterfly nets.
CA passed prop 22 in 2000 by 61%. 8 years later prop 8 passed by 52% in CA. NC voted for its amendment by 61% in 2012 and was hailed as a great victory, but it really only tied the CA of 12 years before, another thing that would have got you called nutso if you would have predicted that in 2000.
Oh, come on — the Republican party, as a party, isn't any better.
There was zero difference between Romney and Obama; and if there was any intention, institutionally, to push for stated platform planks Cruz and Gowdy wouldn't be the abnormal ones.
