Justices Say Utah Doesn't Have to Recognize Gay Marriages
New York Times ^ | July 18, 2014 | By Adam Liptak

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Friday said Utah is not required to recognize the marriages of roughly 1,000 same-sex couples there while state officials pursue appeals.

The court’s order was two sentences long and said only that a lower court’s ruling “is stayed pending the final disposition of the appeal” by the federal appeals court in Denver.

Friday’s order came in a different case, one concerning the status of what the state calls “interim marriages,” meaning those entered into during that period in December and January when same-sex marriage was briefly allowed.

The case seeking recognition of the 1,000 or so marriages was brought by four same-sex couples represented by the American Civil Liberties Union.

They are about to destroy the country by declaring sodomite fraud marriage a ‘civil right’. Soon it will be a ‘civil right’ to burn the ‘bigots’ at the stake. Welcome to America.

It’s just a stay of execution. Justice Kennedy is vote #5 for gay marriage.

I am betting on something like that in the next 10-15 years. I am also betting this country does not survive the 21st century.

It won’t be long before the Fecal “judges” declare Utah’s ban “unconstitutional”. I’m really surprised after watching some of the “shows” on history TV about the Founding Fathers that they failed to write sexual deviancy into the Constitution. These “shows” all portray the Founding Fathers as a bunch of homosexuals, cross dressers, pedophiles and other sorts of sexual deviants. Of course, these commie lib wizards producing this crap could be lying. Revisionist history sucks.

...when you’re a stranger,
faces look ugly when you’re alone
Women seem wicked,
When you’re unwanted,
Streets are uneven,
When you’re down...

I thought Kennedy wrote respecting states rights in his opinion last year....and Scalia WARNED in his dissent that Kennedy was being unrealistic about how his words would be interpreted.

I hope Kennedy now sees Scalia was CORRECT and sides with the Constitutionalists next time.

This is the beginning of the end of the tyranny of the feral judges.

Let these degenerate scumbags go back to chasing ambulances.

Push us too far, gotta fight back
Push us too far, our turn to attack
We gotta try, before it’s too late
Push us too far, you’re choosing your own fate
Walking around, think you’re so cool
Beating up kids, weaker than you
Tried to avoid you, kept on coming
Pushed us too far, gotta do something
This time you pushed us too far

Yesterday the Tenth Circus upheld the district court’s decision overturning Oklahoma’s law that prohibited recognition of homosexual marriages. We have lost the issue, and even some faggot Indian tribes here are allowing queer Indians to marry on Indian land. But no matter what they want to call it two queers can not be married. Marriage is between a man and woman only, and nothing the legal authorities say can change the truth. You can demand that we all call a chicken a duck, but the truth is a chicken is always a chicken and a duck is always a duck. The truth will always win out. So the fags and their allies can play their little social games to make themselves feel better, but the world will always know they are simply perverts.

The entire perverted judicial road show is a sick joke.

Homosexuals were never “discriminated against” by the legal definition of marriage being that of one adult male and one adult female, who are not directly related by familial relations.

The USA does not require anyone to state or affirm their private sexual activity preferences, as a condition for a legal marriage.

I’m not “homophobic”. I just see them as having several things “wrong” with their selves. They never will be normal That’s why they call their selves queer. Court rulings or laws never will change that reality.

I figure crucifixions and feeding Christians to lions will be big entertainment to the Leftists and others in the Bread and Circuses crowd.
