Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage
« on: August 04, 2010, 04:04:27 pm »
(CNN) -- A federal judge in California has knocked down the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, ruling Wednesday that the state's controversial Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution.

Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker found in his ruling that the ban violated the Constitution's equal protection clause under the 14th Amendment.

I'm not against people marrying who they want as long as it doesn't affect me.

The problem I have is the part of this where they are going to teach our kids that this behaviour is normal and have it in textbooks and pretend that this aberrant social maladjustment is normal.

To those folks - I usually say this, "Too bad your parents weren't gay and believed in abortion." - gets the point across, usually.

California is morally bankrupt and cursed.  That is why our economy is in the crapper and we have idiots in Sacramento.

Semi-agreed. I think its disgusting that this judge overturned the Gay-Marriage ban. There is a reason God destroyed Sodom and Gommorrah and why it says at 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 that Men who lie with men will not inherit god's kingdom.

Just remember FEMA's 2001 "predictions" of an NYC terrorist attack, a massive hurricane wiping out the Big Easy, and a massive EQ hitting SF.

Thus far, they're batting 1.000...

Just saying...

If the people of California continue to sheepishly let the banker-owned political establishment manipulate them into obsessing over this blatantly diversionary and ridiculously unimportant wedge issue in the midst of the greatest economic crisis since at least the Great Depression, then quite frankly they deserve to get economically ass-raped by ruling class parasites.

As to the subject of gay marriage, I'll simply restate what I've been saying for years whenever someone brings it up in what is usually an obvious attempt to divert attention from real issues:

The State has no more rightful business licensing marriages (heterosexual or otherwise) than it has licensing friendships!

SEPARATION OF MARRIAGE AND STATE
  
By Debbie O'Hara
August 24, 2003
NewsWithViews.com

Christians are up in arms about the onslaught of anti-family bills that the homosexual activists have been pushing around the country, many of which have passed. Here in California, our governor, in his desperation to try and hang onto his job at any cost says he intends to sign a gay "marriage" bill even though it has more hurdles to pass before reaching his desk. As usual everyone is blaming the atheists and the liberals for trying to destroy God's institution of marriage, but who really deserves the blame? Who gave government the right to interfere with marriage in the first place?

There is now a blur between the supposed "liberal" Democrats, who many people think are godless, and the so-called "conservative" Republicans, where most people who consider themselves Christians reside. They both believe that government is the answer to every problem. The Democrats are probably more honest because at least they admit that they think government is the answer to all of society's problems while the Republicans say they believe in "smaller government" and "individual responsibility" while voting for more socialist government intervention programs, including those regarding marriage.

Right now Christians are championing a federal amendment that's floating around Capitol Hill that says we must keep marriage between one man and one woman. Isn't that what got us into trouble in the first place, getting government involved in marriage? If we allow government to define marriage even if they define it as between one man and one woman, what is to keep them from changing its definition later on to something else? There is no Constitutional or biblical foundation for government to define or regulate marriage. Why did we hand God's institution of marriage over to government in the first place? We even handed it over on a silver platter when Christians decided that being married in the sight of God wasn't good enough; we wanted to get permission from the government via a state license! God's Holy State of Matrimony then became a civil union effectively regulated and controlled by the State. If we continue to allow the state to control marriage, we will see polygamy, two men and a woman, three women and a man, a man and his dog, etc. and probably worse being defined as marriage. And we Christians will be to blame!

Carrying government control of marriage to its logical conclusion, they would also control any product of that marriage, like the children. Should it surprise us that the State is defining what proper parenting is? We get angry and wonder what makes them think that they have the right to push the homosexual agenda and other perversions on our children in the government schools, but why wouldn't they have that right? They control what they permit us to do through the licensing process.

The homosexual agenda is yet another LIBERALISM agenda used to infiltrate our society to cause strife and division. And its infitrated every aspect of our society, including our churches ala the Purpose Driven/Seeker-Sensitive movement.

Ultimately, it's not about these people "being equally treated", it's the evil forces wanting more power and CONTROL.
