Skip to comments.Is Gay Marriage Unstoppable?
Posted on 05/21/2014 2:16:36 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The cascade of same-sex marriage rulings is now a torrent, each more quotable and image-ready than the last. Let us look less to the sky to see what might fall; rather, let us look to each other and rise, district Judge Michael McShane wrote Monday in Oregon. Not to be outdone, district Judge John E. Jones IIIa George W. Bush appointee, personally recommended by Rick Santorumwrote Tuesday in Pennsylvania: We are a better people than what these [marriage] laws represent, and it is time to discard them into the ash heap of history."
Indeed, after Judge Jones threw out his states ban, same-sex marriage is now 12-0 in federal courts across the country. But the lofty rhetoric of these decisions and their legal reasoning are a far cry from Justice Anthony Kennedys opinion in United States v. Windsor, which invalidated the Defense of Marriage Act less than a year ago. As a challenge to a state marriage amendment or law now seems destined to end up at the Supreme Court, probably in the next term, these discrepancies should be cause for concern.

Anyone can Love Anyone they want...but, there is no such thing as “gay marriage”....it’s not possible.
I am absolutely opposed to these rulings and the DOMA ruling but the answer is ... “yes”.
Doesn’t mean don’t fight, and yeah anything is possible, but this issue is lost. Putting aside the fact that Judges across the spectrum are ruling against laws outlawing these “marriages”, SCOTUS will never, ever undo tens of thousands of marriages, legal changes, etc.
Sometimes as a Prosecutor we had to realize “we lost that issue or case, move on to the next one.”
It isn’t marriage, so the question is moot.
It will be stopped after the generation of gays haven’t reproduced their own.
RE: It will be stopped after the generation of gays havent reproduced their own.
That’s why RECRUITING is another important strategy to them...
We are faced with a corrupt president, Congress and the courts, not to mention corrupt officials at the state level, all of whom are leading this nation to destruction at the hands of God. I can only pray that for the sake of the good people, He will smite the evildoers and save those who hold fast to His commandments.

thanks again rick.
We need to keep track of how many gay people are actually getting married. It seems to be increasing slightly - mostly because gays now feel compelled to do it since they carried on so much about it. But several years ago, despite the push, very few guys were getting married. Honest statistics should tell the real story.
I can’t reason how a Federal court can rewrite a State Constitution.
Ask the population of Sodom and Gomorrah.
And it will come (my guess is from Hollyweird). Perversions will ALWAYS result in scandal.
Probably not in this ultra PC world we live in. Oh, & BTW, I for one am getting sick of hearing about this travesty. Why is it important that we are forced to know where the queers stick it? Just sick and tired of this sickness.
Our culture is sick unfortunately.
We’re not shocked by anything. The cheapening of life, especially at the beginning and end, the normalizing of perversity and the abandonment of God. These are symptoms of grave illness, but we see it as some kind of human evolution. It will not end well, but maybe in the end we will have learned something. Pray.
“I cant reason how a Federal court can rewrite a State Constitution”
These judges must be following the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution.
We may need to amend the US Constitution to remove that clause.
And common corbett will not appeal the decision in PA. No way in hell am I going to pull the lever for him in November.
For all the hoopala, you’d think we had 50 million gays.
How many gays are there?
How many will actually marry?
How many gay marriages will actually last?
I’m betting we get a rash of unsucessful marriages, followed by a steep decline.
If SCOTUS took this up next week, they’d declare the recognication of homosexual marriage to be a long-standing tradition. SCOTUS is a “go with the flow” operation.
