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 Virginiansand Americansin supporting true equality.
Click here to join me now in hailing the Courts 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 Virginias ban on marriage equality violated the U.S. Constitutionso I became the first attorney general in the nation to actually challenge a ban in federal court and win.
Since then, Ive been moved by so many families reaching out to tell their stories. We cant let ANY Virginia children grow up with the message that their families dont deserve the same rights as others. Its 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. Its a dark chapter in our history, but its one weve learned from.
There are bound to be more hurdles on the road to equality, but thanks to the Fourth Circuit, were one step closer. Now, the U.S. Supreme Court must speak.
Click here now to add your voice to the Courts, to support doing the right thing for all Virginians.
Heres to true equality.
Another name to add to the list of traitors to the country...
Maybe he’s a faggot.
He’s known to be a democrat ... that’s almost as bad.
“dark chapter” .....YHGTBSM
if ‘love and warm feelings’ is all that matters, can pedophiles get married now?
if love and warm feelings is all that matters, can pedophiles get married now?
...when has it ever been illegal for male and female pedophiles to marry...?
They are next
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?
Is this guy “openly gay”?
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.
You can be giddy now, but God will not be mocked, so get your laughs in while you can.................
So... he’s a fag?
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.
My poor 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.
PS Herring plans to run for Governor in 2017.
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.
