It’s time to kneel down and pray for our nation

Posted on 26 June 2015 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

The Supreme Court came down in favor of same-sex marriage today.  The Slip opinions are HERE.

Held: The Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State. Pp. 3–28.

[…] KENNEDY, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which GINSBURG, BREYER, SOTOMAYOR, and KAGAN, JJ., joined.

ROBERTS, C. J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which SCALIA and THOMAS, JJ., joined.

SCALIA, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which THOMAS, J., joined.

THOMAS, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which SCALIA, J., joined.

ALITO, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which SCALIA and THOMAS, JJ., joined.

There is no provision for any state which has its own laws limiting marriage to two sexes.  Thus, this is now the “law of the land” in all 50 states.

Who wins?  Not society.  Perhaps divorce lawyers.

It may be that this was as inevitable as the night which follows the day.  I had hoped not, but with only a little hope.

It would seem to me that Roberts did the right thing here — defying any kind of threat from the O camp.

You may be right......but is it ever too late to pray when you consider the power and authority of God?

I await Francis’s condemnation. Maybe he’ll include his delayed condemnation for Ireland.

It’s not my nation anymore. Not this depraved sewer.

I won’t pray for it.

"It would seem to me that Roberts"

He probably counted the votes and realized he could get away with pretending to be conservative. Pretending is a common ploy in DC.

Knock it off. I prayed twice for obamatard not to get elected yet here we are...TWICE. Prayer doesn’t work unless YOU do something about it. God hates beggars.

This is all about some gay mentor to Kennedy and he just had to repay that personal debt and make life rosy for gays.

And now children will continue to be handed over to them to grow up with this nonsense.

We are never told in Scripture to pray for our nation.

I’m done praying for this God-hating Obama-nation.

I’m praying for the (and therefore, its) end.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus. Maranatha!
