Posted on 06/07/2014 11:07:44 AM PDT by Oliviaforever
WASHINGTON -- The federal judge who struck down Wisconsin's gay marriage ban thinks state officials have a thing or two to learn about the history of marriage as a social institution.
In defending their same-sex marriage ban, state officials claimed that "virtually all cultures through time" have recognized marriage "as the union of an opposite-sex couple."
But as U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb wrote in her 88-page ruling on Friday, that's simply not true.
"As an initial matter, defendants and amici have overstated their argument. Throughout history, the most 'traditional' form of marriage has not been between one man and one woman, but between one man and multiple women, which presumably is not a tradition that defendants and amici would like to continue," Crabb wrote in her opinion.

Yes. but it does not change the fact that the federal judge in Wisconsin completely a fabricated construct which is entirely false in order to force a ruling on Wisconsin Christians.
A lying whore...a terrorist in black robes.
Wisconsin has the Crabbs!
This sort of craziness just won’t stop.
I don’t know, King Solomon had a thousand wives, King David had quite a few. And it caused them much grief; it obviously was not what God had intended from the start but it did happen, nonetheless.
Wikipedia says this:
On April 15, 2010, Crabb ruled in a suit that the Freedom From Religion Foundation filed in 2008 against the Bush administration that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. This ruling was unanimously dismissed by a federal appellate court in April 2011 due to lack of standing.
On November 22, 2013 Crabb ruled in another suit the exemption of a housing allowance from the income of clergy was unconstitutional
... and now this!
British North America matrimony was primarily arranged in the higher classes and “for love” among the lower classes. In both cases this was one man-one woman union which then was carried over after 1783. The Judge simply lives in “shadows” when justifying her “rule”. Sign of (Perverted) Times.
I think its pretty clear that Joseph and Jesus had only Mary.
The judge is a Mormon ???
Of course the homofascists won’t admit that the fundamental requirement of marriage, male and female, is present in polygamous marriage, which in fact does have a historical basis. Meanwhile they try to convince the gullible that something as absurd as gay “marriage” is just about love and civil rights.
King Solomon had a thousand wives,
No King Solomon had a 300 wives and 700 concubines...
Yes, and so what!
Nothing in that argument goes in anyway to the oxymoron of calling something marriage, where the necessary act of consummation (i.e., a procreative coupling between man & woman) is impossible. The Judge might also look at the Matriarchal societies in West Africa where one woman could marry multiple men. That is also totally irrelevant to the present argument, which seeks to justify a self-cotradictory absurdity.
What is very clear in this matter, is that this has nothing to do with "fairness," "tolerance" or "respect" for anyone. It is a compulsion driven war on the consequences of the division of the higher forms of life into two sexes, where each sex is essential to the other sex's completion. No Court & no Legislative body can alter that reality; and pretending to do so, can only lead to wholesale disrespect for our legal system, which as a lawyer, I must deplore.
We used to laugh when we joked about liberalism being a mental disease but of course now we know it’s not a joke. On top of wanting total government control these leftists believe all this garbage from gay marriage, global warming, amnesty, etc.... Can’t these idiots see their ideas don’t and will never work? Any reasonable person would step back and assess the damage and change their mode of thinking. Not these people. Instead of backing down they’ve doubled down on their leftist nonsense knowing they can get away with it because of a friendly media, a dumbed down population, and a hapless opposition party. We’re so screwed as a nation.
Isn’t THE ISSUE what “traditional marriage has been in the US back since oh say 100 years before the revolution. AND NOT all the way back to cave men and muzzies for thousands of years!
She just opened the door to allowing polygamous marriages in America with that stupid opinion of hers.
Screw it. Let them all get married. “What difference does it make?” Worry about your own life. Who’s to say that maybe it’s not actually a higher form of love. Don’t know, don’t care. IF anyone can’t see the agenda here it’s the break up of the fundamental family. Maybe that’s God’s will, maybe it’s not, but it’s going to happen and there’s nothing we can do about it except to live our own lives. When a man like OBama is re-elected in this country it tells you the times they are a changing....
Let’s deal with the outcomes. I am certain that the life in places where Marijuana and Same SEx marriage is legal will be affected in a very negative way. I choose not to smoke, and I choose not to be gay.
