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.
castro street in san francisco...
“Same-sex couples, who would otherwise qualify to marry in Indiana, have the right to marry in Indiana,”
is al sharpton this guys english tutor??
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.
The states should just exert their 10th amendment rights ant tell FedGov to pound sand... /s
Just buy more ammo!
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.
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.
And our spineless Republican leaders do and say nothing.
Romer vs. Evans. Another terrible decision on the same level as Koramatsu and Dredd Scott
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.
The Constitution does NOT demand what this intellectually poor judge has ruled.
Stand against this crap, Pence. We have a 10th amendment for a REASON.
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.
Polygamy is just around the corner!
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.
It’s time for a revolution. An honest-to-God Lexington and Concord, shooting revolution.
So THAT’S what the Republicans in Congress in 1868 intended. Clever, clever.
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.
Sarcastically stated, I hope.
Warp speed! Losing this country at warp speed!
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.
Likewise two faggots exchanging rings, saying words, and engaging in sodomy don't make it "marriage."
so does that also discriminate against two wives too, after all equality for all bla bla
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.
But suppose they are horses?
I believe Ayn Rand was big on Objectivism
Obama and his commie one worlders on the other hand have nothing but subjective hooey on which to base their edicts..and behavior.
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.
The Supreme Judge rejects “gay marriage”, a modern invention of flawed mortals.
