AG Mark Herring is giddy over court ruling for homosexual marriage in VA (BARF ALERT)
email from Herring

Posted on 07/29/2014 12:25:12 PM PDT by Gopher Broke

Friend–

HUGE NEWS: Today, the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed what so many of us know to be true: "Virginia's same-sex marriage bans impermissibly infringe on its citizens' fundamental right to marry."

By upholding the constitutional rights of all Virginia families, the Court has joined many Virginians—and Americans—in supporting true equality.

Click here to join me now in hailing the Court’s decision to agree that it's time to put us on the right side of the law and history.

When I took office, we faced a court date in just a few weeks and had to decide whether this office would defend the ban, as my predecessor had done, or whether we would fight for equality. After much research and reflection, I knew Virginia’s ban on marriage equality violated the U.S. Constitution—so I became the first attorney general in the nation to actually challenge a ban in federal court and win.

Since then, I’ve been moved by so many families reaching out to tell their stories. We can’t let ANY Virginia children grow up with the message that their families don’t deserve the same rights as others. It’s downright shameful.

Our state has been at a similar crossroads before: in 1959, Virginia refused to recognize the interracial marriage of Mildred and Richard Loving of Caroline County. They were even sentenced to a year in prison for violating the “racial integrity” act. It’s a dark chapter in our history, but it’s one we’ve learned from.

There are bound to be more hurdles on the road to equality, but thanks to the Fourth Circuit, we’re one step closer. Now, the U.S. Supreme Court must speak.

Click here now to add your voice to the Court’s, to support doing the right thing for all Virginians.

Here’s to true equality.

Mark

No the leftist side of the lawless and gay perverted marriage will eventually burn on the ash heap of all history all down through the ages. Have a nice delusional ride down with it.

Does that apply to children in polygamists families too?

Let’s get all this same sex marriage and buggery legalized ASAP. Then make it a capital crime to be parading your private parts around and waving them in anyone’s face or recruiting or influencing youth to go down the same road. Maybe the federal goobamint should have programs that teach people how to screw themselves, instead of the rest of us.

What is downright shameful is you, sir. You and the homosexual cabal demanding normalization of perversion and obscenities in the name of normal "families."

TRADITIONAL marriage was fundamental to a civilized society.

There is nothing “fundamental” about same sex marriage. Calling it a “fundamental” right when there is no basis for it in thousands of years of human kind is an insult.

As soon as a kid caught up in a same-sex love nest notices that his "family" is truly weird, he'll have the consolation of knowing that the AG of his state thinks their lifestyle is super-cool. No doubt this will do wonders for his psychological health.

Thank you for the barf alert.

What we’re not not hearing about gay marriage from the corrupt media is the following. Not only does the Constitution’s silence about gay marriage mean that gay marriage is not a constitutionally enumerated right, such a “right” now being wrongly legislated from the bench by activist judges, but it also means that it’s ultimately up to the voters of a given state to decide marriage policy for their state.

He doesnt have a problem winning by voter fraud. So he’s another shady character in politics. Of course when the gov is a 4 year lame duck from NY. They have nothing else.

He’s bitter because he’s part of an administration that is forgotten before they took office.

I read Kruschev was the first one to talk about being on the “right side of history”. Was the big Zero the first one to use that in regards to SSM?

Obenshain was up by several hundred votes until they “found” bags of pre-marked ballots. And no one went to jail over it.
