Posted on 05/20/2014 12:30:22 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
A federal judge Tuesday struck down Pennsylvania's law prohibiting same-sex marriage, saying it violates the U.S. Constitution.
With the ruling, the Keystone State joins a host of others in which judges have struck down existing laws restricting marriage to between one man and one woman. All such decisions have been stayed, pending appeals.
"Because these laws are unconstitutional, we shall enter an order permanently enjoining their enforcement," U.S. District Judge John E. Jones wrote of Pennsylvania's same-sex marriage restrictions. "By virtue of this ruling, same-sex couples who seek to marry in Pennsylvania may do so, and already married same-sex couples will be recognized as such in the Commonwealth."

Courts have ruled that laws banning same-sex marriage in Arkansas, Idaho, Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Texas, Michigan and just yesterday, Oregon are unconstitutional.
We could just let our 2-3,000 Black-Robed Masters tell us how it's going to be.
Oh, wait - that's how it is, already...
Ugh. That makes me ill......
This is not only going on for the issue of marriage.

Funny these “Federal” judges haven’t ruled Obamacare UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
F U B O!
The parasitic financial elite establishment has owned our Judiciary for a long time.
Too bad for us, the Rockys want perversion. So they’re forcing it on all Americans, as well as the rest of the world.
Until these financial elite parasites face prosecution and just punishment for their treason, the governments that are playing host to them will be used against righteousness and promote evil.
another moderate/lib judge appointed by our side.
Just what is the constitutional provision that forbids such purported discrimination? Just curious.
They’re wiseasses. It’s blatant.
The sheeple need to stop accepting evil and unrighteousness.
Stop thinking abominations are “ok”.
Start owning their own politicians.
Oh, I see. Now we have rule by judges and not the people? These judges are out of bounds and need to be tarred and feathered and kicked out on their asses.
Another Bush appointee. Its starting to be a really close race between him and Obama as to who’s helped liberalism more.
We really need the states to say NO! Stand up to FedZilla.
The people in the states will support it. C’mon states - do it!
RE: Just what is the constitutional provision that forbids such purported discrimination? Just curious.
These judges inevitably cite the Equal Protection Clause, part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution.
The clause, which took effect in 1868, provides that no state shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction “the equal protection of the laws”.
So, if heterosexuals can marry, denying homosexuals the right to marry violates Equal Protection.
And as we all know...no one denied the homos the right to marry....the person of the opposite sex of their choosing.
One more traitor appointed by the idiot George W. Bush. When will people accept that all the Bushes are globalists and elitists who couldn’t care less about morality?
Ugh, a Bush appointee.
When force is the standard, the murderer wins over the pickpocket. And then that society vanishes, in a spread of ruins and slaughter.
