Local media in Miami has a thrill running down their collective legs.
So much for the gay-media spin that this is all about "love".
Man and his government are standing against the Almighty. Guess who is going to lose?
1 Why do the nations conspire
and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5 He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6 I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.
7 I will proclaim the Lords decree:
He said to me, You are my son;
today I have become your father.
8 Ask me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.
9 You will break them with a rod of iron[b];
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.
10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear
and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
Another court-induced change in the law.
One thing for sure these creatures can’t multiply.
What is shocking is that 36 states allow for gay marriage now. I had no idea the number was that high. They said Maryland where I live has gay marriage which I had forgotten. It is certainly everywhere now. We are losing this one.
Hinkle was nominated by President Bill Clinton on June 6, 1996, to a seat vacated by William H. Stafford, Jr. on the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on July 25, 1996, and received his commission on August 1, 1996. He served as chief judge from 2004 to 2009.
On August 21, 2014, Hinkle issued a ruling in Brenner v. Scott that denied the state defendants’ motion to dismiss and granted the same-sex couple plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction. In ordering the injunction, Judge Hinkle found that Florida’s statutory and constitutional bans on same-sex marriage were federally unconstitutional.
Sarah I. Zabel is a judge of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court, Civil Division, in Florida. She was elected to the court on November 5, 2002, and took office in early 2003. Zabel was most recently re-elected without opposition in 2014, winning a six-year term that expires on January 4, 2021.
Judge Sarah I. Zabel found Florida’s same-sex marriage ban to be unconstitutional on August 1, 2014. In her order, the judge wrote: Preventing couples from marrying solely on the basis of their sexual orientation serves no governmental interest. It serves only to hurt, to discriminate, to deprive same-sex couples and their families of equal dignity, to label and treat them as second-class citizens, and to deem them unworthy of participation in one of the fundamental institutions of our society.”
If voting changed anything it would be made illegal.
We are losing this one in the courts by activist fiat. It isn’t because of the will of the voters. Overwhelmingly they are traditional on this issue.
An Imposed Rule by Judiciary. States have no say anymore.
True. We only lost four states to voters.
Where does the Federal Constitution prohibit such an amendment in the states’ constitutions?
The circus court judges are abusing their powers.
Choosing sin and what is unnatural over the design of their Creator. Sowing to the wind.
Matthew 19: 4-6:
“And He answered and said to them, Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
yes that is true.sick lot and will do all they can to turn that child into one of them..
We are losing this one.
It’s hard to win a battle when the generals running the Surrender Party don’t want to fight it.
So we have again another activist judge who is imposing a law which the people and the constitution doe snot want.
Why did we all go to that trouble, spend millions, get signatures, take the time to vote and then we have this judge make their own law up?
I’, still trying to find where in the Fed constitution does it say they have or anyone has a right to marry.
