DENVER (AP) A federal appeals court's gay marriage ruling contained two historic firsts: It was the first appellate decision for gay marriage since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act one year ago, and it also marked the first time since then a federal judge has argued for keeping a state ban on same-sex marriages.
Judge Paul J. Kelly, Jr. was in the minority in his opinion as the two other judges on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals panel found the U.S. Constitution protects the rights of gay couples to marry. Kelly has broken the string of 16 state and federal judges who sided with gay marriage advocates in cases across the country over the past year. [snip]
Never forget the activist judges who did overturn all these bands were both rat AND GOP appointees. Never trust the GOP.
I erred. It’s title is “Ruling shows crack in legal gay marriage unanimity”, & the author is Nicholas Riccardi. Sorry.
he sounds like he is a real libertarian that understands what libertarian is..
Not one of these Libertarian Party fakes ( aka, progressives in libertarian clothing) that wouldn't know what a libertarian was if it bit them in the ass
And we must have unaninimity, of thought. Diversity is for important things, like skin color.
I read somewhere that he wrote they didn’t take into account an earlier marriage court case. Sounded important. Maybe they’ll be more of his opinion at the Supteme Court.
A minority opinion is not a victory.
If the SC refuses to take this up, which I think is likely, then gay marriage will exist and be legally sanctioned in the 10th Circuit. More importantly other circuits may follow the 10th which has the reputation as being one of the more conservative Appeals courts...
And the rulings recently hinge on the 14th. About "equal protection".
Well, the Constitution doesn't say anything about gays anywhere, or smokers, or pedophiles.
Doesn't mean EVERYBODY is treated "equally" under the law.
But apparently gays are somehow "special".
There is literally NO defense when the polygamists come calling.
Or say brothers getting married, or parents and children.
If "love" is the ONLY requirement for marriage, who CAN'T get married.
Marriage - one man, one woman.
This whole ‘homosexual marriage’ hustle is bunk.
When you redefine words to mean anything you choose, words come to mean nothing.
