Posted on 06/25/2014 10:07:03 AM PDT by Alter Kaker
federal judge struck down Indiana's ban on same-sex marriage Wednesday in a ruling that immediately allows gay couples to wed.
U.S. District Judge Richard Young ruled that the state's ban violates the U.S. Constitution's equal-protection clause because it treats couples differently based on their sexual orientation.
"Same-sex couples, who would otherwise qualify to marry in Indiana, have the right to marry in Indiana," he wrote. "These couples, when gender and sexual orientation are taken away, are in all respects like the family down the street. The Constitution demands that we treat them as such."

Is the alarm loud enough yet?
And the Marxist tsunami continues unabated. America may be well and truly finished.
“Just elect more Republicans!”
We must pray harder for ted kennedy.
The Supreme Court really opened the flood gates on this one. Their decisions last year were poorly constructed and seemed to just parrot the far left. They gave every judge the ability to strike down any law regardless of the merit or the will of the people.
If only we had elected Romney, he would have stood against such evil.
You can thank sodomite Kennedy for that one. I think he was also instrumental in overturning Texas’ sodomy ban if I remember correctly. One of the worst justices in the history of America.
The gospel according to the cheatin’ Democrats.
Kennedy engaged in homosexuality?
If the boot fits. I always had my suspicions about Roberts too. Remember that pic of him?
No. A family by definition requires a man and woman to produce children. You can't take away gender or orientation. Its intrinsic with being human.
Also today, a federal appeals court in Utah struck down the state's same sex marriage ban today. The vote was by a three judge panel, and two of the judges were Republicans.
I know. Its almost become a slapstick comedy at this point.
“These couples, when gender and sexual orientation are taken away, are in all respects like the family down the street. The Constitution demands that we treat them as such.”
oh now theres some sound reasoning.......
What actually happened was a hard case that made bad law. If one followed the biblical way of dealing with offenses, one might note the stoning, but one might also note the rules for witnesses. As it turned out, a policeman barged into someone’s bedroom. If that had gotten tried according to Old Testament standards, it would have been chucked out as only one witness, and the perp would skate....
This case should not have been pressed. I fault the prosecution too.
It is to laugh at, and then to cry that it is believed.
When a qualifier is necessary to make your case... you have no case.
Well how do you allege that it fits?
I think you have an entirely unjustified guilt by association argument. And it puts a taint on anything else you might assert, ironically.
Which street would that be?
The street where the opposite-sex couples do violent things to one another all the time.
