VOX POPULI: REACTIONS FROM BLOGS TO THE DOMA AND PROP 8 SCOTUS DECISIONS


Thoeressamt

There is a flood of commentary to blog posts on the conservative side of the Internet about today’s SCOTUS decisions on Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act. We start at Breitbart:

America is doomed!

And once again, SCOTUS has betrayed us when we needed them. There will be no chance of saving this evil country any longer. The choice has been made, thanks to Obama’s new immoral court!

Our only chance to save this now, is to tear it down and start over. And America will surely fail all by itself, now that the direction it has taken is beyond repair !

SCOTUS SAYS DOMA UNCONSTITUTIONAL. ———————————————-GOD IF HE EXISTS IS PRO CHOICE AND PRO GAY RIGHTS. DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW WRONG YOU HAVE BEEN.————THANKS TO RONALD REAGAN FOR APPOINTING ANTHONY KENNEDY, THE MOST FAIRMINDED GOP APPOINTEE IN HISTORY. You must consider the ramifications of how wrong you’ve been. We do not live under the bible, koran, or book of mormon, but the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

lol what? You think that God is ok with paying a doctor to murder a child because you dont feel like dealing with it, and he’s ok with two people that cannot even have intercourse to be wed? Try reading the Bible sometime, its a real eye opener. Unless you were being sarcastic..

Which part of the Bible? The passage that says to kill children that misbehave or kill people for working on sunday?

MuSLIMES hate everyone. Even other MuSLIMES. Gays won’t be the only ones with Targets on their backs ( or quickly chopped off Heads ). But your right. The Project. Alive and well in AmeriKa. Compliments of the Black MuSLIME Hitler.

These laws were wrongfully given to you gay people by a failing scotus. By deciding which laws under the ‘In God We Trust’ atmosphere they can make right and wrong they now have made all laws ok – murder and stealing among the main ones. These people say they can pick and choose – bet that’s not going to work out well for them.
Next, what law or set odf rules give the scotus any powers the people’s vote and how can it be overturned or maybe just do away with the scotus.

This story stinks of desperation by the blaze. Anything to give its readers a glimmer of hope that somehow their unexplainable bigotry will endure. Today was the death knell to about the last christian promoted biblical form of prejudice in this country. Soon Federal law will trump the existing bigoted laws of States that will not permit true freedom and equality. Gay marriage is coming to your state and town sooner than you think and no amount of praying will stop it. Another in a long line of social battles lost by radicalized christians, making this truly the greatest country in the history of the world.

Sadly, this decision violates the very principles of political discord and discussion within and between the states. All state laws that currently deny same sex marriage can and will be overturned using this SCOTUS opinion. This was a political nullification of legislative authority, not a judicial ruling. It rewrites the definition of marriage to mean “NOTHING.” By extension of using the 5th amendment to justify same-sex marriage on an equality basis, it means that all forms of interpersonal relations should have equal standing under the law including polygamy, incestuous marriage, young child/adult marriage, posthumous marriage, and perhaps even marriage between humans and animals. It may also remove marriage as a defining term as equality might also be meant to mean rights of unmarried roommates or lovers living together. This goes hand in hand with the dissolution of religious freedoms and practices, the nuclear family and the role of parents in raising a child.

It also seems to grant the Supremes new powers to interpret the law they way “they see fit,” not the way the elected legislative representatives established the law. This is a dangerous precedent which does not bode well for a constitutional republic.

For those that don’t think that this a planned attack on our society and constitution, Google the Communist Manifesto and read it. It shouldn’t take more than a half hour to understand the main points.

I dont even read this article for one reason.

The supreme court has called me a bigot. Has called EVERYONE who believes in the constitution and the RULE OF LAW bigots. Everyone should read Scallia’s dissent and see what those five BITCHES IN ROBES think of the people.

I think this is a cross between exotic reasoning and wishful thinking. The Court clearly laid the predicate for laws prohibiting gay marriage to be overturned on equal protection grounds. This was not a decision based on federalism but rather on a very expansive and big government friendly point of view.

The real issue is one that Ben Domenech brought up earlier in the week in The Transom. This decision makes it clear that the government is willing, for the time being, to accept a Freedom of Worship. It has declared war on Freedom of Religion.

jpkoch streiff • an hour ago −
Outstanding post. I’ve noticed during the last 12 months, Progressives say, “We have nothing against your freedom of private worship. But, the minute you exit your church you are prohibited from expressing what you believe.”

The Free Exercise of Religion is, like you point out, is under assault.

I suggest you read more opinions from the experts. For one, the reasoning was not at all on 14th Amendment grounds, but on 5th Amendment Liberty grounds. Second, the majority opinion is littered with Federalism aspects. Thirdly, read the final sentence of the opinion, and then come back and theorize on what the opinion actually covers…

streiff Mod congressworksforus • 2 hours ago −
Yeah, well I don’t need to read mythology. I read the opinion. I hope you realize that the last sentence did not pertain to the issue the court was deciding. You can continue to believe in leprechauns but the idea that this is anything but a body blow to laws defining marriage as 1 man, 1 woman is just nonsense.

congressworksforus streiff • 2 hours ago −
We don’t need laws defining it. We need the government to get out of the marriage business. Marriage is between 1 man, 1 woman and their God.

Not between 2 adults and the government.

There are civil union laws for that.

I would have liked them to address the CA state sup court and how that arrogant judge voided the people’s amendment prop 8. By what authority did he void their amendment? How common is that?
Imagine the people of CA having no ‘standing’ in court over writing the laws they live under!
LALLAL land Orwell, are you here? No its more like the Soviet union or some totalitarian terror zone now.

This nothing to do with gay marriage and everything to do with shredding the moral fabric and foundation upon which this country was built.

Once completed, communism enters in to fill the vacuum. Like a sinister cancer.

Expect every state with a marriage definition law to be challenged this year, especially if liberal judges can be lined up to hear the cases and the appeals.

I wonder when the rest of the sexual deviants will come crawling out of the wood work demanding their rights (polygamist, incestuous families, even necrophiliacs)?

Shudder

John Adams was a prophet. Now we are living in prophetic times.

IMO, the focus now shifts: from how to restore the Christian/moral foundation of our country, to how can we as Christians/moral people survive in a country that is intent on beating us down and eliminating us.

When you eliminate right and wrong, all that remains is might makes right. In other words we descend back into a pagan society.

Well, our faggy brethren, breath your “victory” in deeply and savor the moment.

You’ll want to recall this later when you’re the first wave hauled off under Sharia Law.

Gays want to marry as much as they want the plague. This is about destroying religions by forcing churches, who otherwise wouldn’t, to marry sodomites. Wonder how Bammy’s musloid handlers will like this?

To all my gay brothers and sisters (and straight friends who have supported us), think about this for a minute.

We didn’t just witness history today. We became a part of it. Every last one of us. While those who are against us simply watched us make progress toward full equality in the biggest political, legal and social event to date where gay rights are concerned (even bigger than the repeal of DADT), we were actually a part of that progress.

One day, when we’re talked about in text books the way the black community is now (including the right to enter interracial marriages), we won’t simply read about it. And we won’t simply have watched it happen. We will have lived it. We will have caused it.

No matter what else happens from here on out, nothing and no one can take away the fact that we didn’t just witness history being made; we made it.

Suck on that, bigots.

  1. and yet none can state the HARM gay marrage does to straight marrage such that remedy is required or such that the 14 amendment (equal protection) does NOT apply.

    anything else is a religious argument which ur still free to have in ur tax-exempt church.

    • Ser Orrin this is the legal point that has won the fight for marriage equality. The conservatives are arguing that the Prop 8 plaintiffs had legal standing while they clearly did not. The Right cannot understand why the Obama administration was not seen by the court in the same light as the California AG. In the case of DOMA there was a class that was done harm by the law in California it was simply as case as you propose people being offended because of their tax exempt religious beliefs. As an attorney I have long held that if corporations can be people then religious organizations should have to pay corporate taxes to participate in politics. This would be the ultimate constitutional expression of freedom of and from religion.

      • no kidding. and i imagine the probate & divorce lawyers are happy since i would expect gay marrages to fail at about the same rate as straight marrages (we’ll see).

        now im off to select a suitable female sheep since we’re obviously on the slippery slope to beastality.

        baah baah babiee ))

      • Delicious sarcasm!
