Judge Strikes Down Indiana Ban on Gay Marriage
AP ^ | 6/25/2014 | CHARLES WILSON

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

You’re right. I apologize for that remark. Kennedy is actually a really good justice who makes good decisions and knows the constitution well. He doesn’t normally let any biases he may have come into play. My remarks were uncalled for.

It actually goes further in the past than Lawrence v Texas. He gave us the Romer v Evans decision in 1996. The normalization of homosexuality was a decision made sometimes 20 years ago, Kennedy is the chief implementer of the strategy. Ronald Reagan’s greatest failure, may yet doom the republic.

Yuck.

Kennedy was the deciding vote in Kelo.

He was supposed to be ready and ban abortion in 1992, but changed his mind.

Marriage is not an enumerated power of the fed.

I’d prefer the governor and the state supreme chief justice to say that the fed justice had no standing to rule on a non-enumerated power.

This is what the Republicans get for rarely opposing the judicial nominees of Democrats. I will never forgive the RINOs for approving Ruth Bader Ginsburg 96-3. McConnell, McCain and Hatch all voted for her.

GENDER is NECESSARY to define marriage. Male and female.

I pray and fast every Wednesday morning for the upcoming July 2 marriage trial in Florida.

I hope you all join me in some way this week praying for that case. The attorney general of Florida, Pam Bondi is DEFENDING MARRIAGE.

In honor of this earth-shattering nonsense allowing sodomites to “marry”, the state will be giving a free years supply of vaseline to Bruce and Tom and a free years supply of strap-on dildos to Gilda and Mavis. Since the state does know who will pay the “man” and actually strap on the dildo, the box will contain the name of both Gilda and Mavis.

This country has official gone mad. If God ever wanted to give the world an enema, he could certainly justify sticking it right in the middle of the United States of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Anthony Kennedy ruled sodomy was no longer illegal between two consenting adults in Texas. This legalized anal sex all over the country and the natural progression was “marriage” for the fudge packers. Apparently Kennedy does not know Biology 100, the anus is not a sex organ, no matter what the sodomites would have you believe. It’s purpose is the exit of feces from the body, and it has no other purpose. Degenerate, perverted anal sex will lead to all sorts of diseases, most notably anal cancer, and will lead to an early grave. The “marriage” of two people of the same sex can not be consummated, therefore “marriage” is impossible, no matter what sodomites want others to believe.

Marriage is (or at least ought to be — it too has become abused) about complementary love of male with female. These lustful arrangements are about, well, lust.

Reagan’s legacy is a bit overrated by conservatives. Yes, he did a lot of great things, but he also appointed liberal judges and signed amnesty into law.

You can put a cat in the oven, but that doesn't make it chocolate cake.

Likewise two faggots exchanging rings, saying words, and engaging in sodomy don't make it "marriage."

America is finished, and we have a front row seat to its destruction. Of course, the immoral ones out there are championing the ruling, and people like me who try to expound the truth are ridiculed, but the truth is the truth, and this ruling is just another nail in the coffin of the death of America.

Obama has become like King Manasseh of Judah. He has truly become the most wicked man to be president in the USA, and I truly feel that God has pulled his protection from us because of men like him.
