Supreme decision marks the territory

The Supreme Court Ratifies a New Civic Religion That Is Incompatible with Christianity

by David French June 26, 2015 | National Review Online

The most striking aspect of Justice Kennedy’s majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, which created a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, was its deep emotion. This was no mere legal opinion. Indeed, the law and Constitution had little to do with it. (To Justice Kennedy, the most persuasive legal precedents were his own prior opinions protecting gay rights.) This was a statement of belief, written with the passion of a preacher, meant to inspire.
Consider the already much-quoted closing:
” As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”

Love substitutes for logic and the Constitution. They needed a trump card and they found one with love. Love is also kind, and you don’t see much of that from the LGBT lobby. But then what does love have to do with a lawsuit? When emotion is the basis for decisions, then how much further do we have to go?

Well, it sounds a lot more like the Woodstock decision

    Right behind you, I see the millions
    On you, I see the glory
    From you, I get opinion
    From you, I get the story

    This decision is BULLSHIT by any measure. NO WHERE in the Constitution does it mention Marriage and it sure as shit isn’t in the cited 13th and 14th Amendemnets either. This is a State’s issue as deemed by the Constitution since it is not mentioned. The Supremes should not even heard the arguments much less ruled on it.

    Time for Article 5. The States need to reestablish their sovereignty. There’s no other option.

    I find it inconceivable that ONE vote by a person in a black robe can usurp the will of the people. It is totally unconstitutional. The Supremes have no authority to write legislation, change it, or interpret it. Laws passed by Congress are constitutional or they are not. The Supremes have no purview in State laws that are not expressly mentioned in the Constitution. End of story.

      Well said Nox, “or they are not”…that’s where we have a problem. They already telegraphed (Roberts particularly) that they will not declare something Unconstitutional. Great. Like Congress, one part of their job they refuse to do.

        You mean the same Constitution that they swore to defend? That one?

        All of these assholes are corrupt (barring a small handful). Makes no difference which branch, department, or agency. They all swear the same oath. Apparently the oath doesn’t mean anything except to the military.

        It’s time for a reset. It’s the only cure since there is no political will to fix anything. We peasants yo-yo between the 2 year election cycle with the promise and expectations that things will be corrected only to get told “wait, there’s an election coming… not now”. WTF?

        The left has no such constraints and they continue to press forward every second of every hour.

    If the 14th Amendment now nullifies the First, doesn’t that make the 14th illegal?

    Was Justice Kennedy at Woodstock back in the days? I love the Who.

    Well I guess now the SCOTUS will be deciding their cases on feelings like love, not law. And obvious they are not following the “law of the land” which is our Constitution.

    Of course as you and I have discussed Bull I don’t consider this the law of the land since “making law” is not within this branch of government. I see no reason for any state to pay any attention to this so called law because it’s bogus. Only Congress makes laws.

      Pepp, Who knew?

      At least now they dispensed with the illusion, why not just embrace it and say it? No they are not upholding the Constitution or their oath to it.

      Right, they should drive us all into dissent, if after all we are refusing to follow unconstitutional gibberish. Ha ha only Congress makes laws and then SCOTUS rewrites them from the bench. LOL

        Ha ha, that’s about right now. May as well do away with Congress and just have these 9 black robes make all the laws.

  4. I think the Supreme Court just went down the drain, through the gutter, and down to the sewage. I not thinking very highly of them right now. God help them because they truly do not know what they did.
