Federal Judge: Right to Same-Sex Marriage Is 'Deeply Rooted in Nationís History ...

Complete Headline: Federal Judge: Right to Same-Sex Marriage Is 'Deeply Rooted in Nation’s History and Implicit in The Concept of Ordered Liberty'

Judge Robert J. Shelby, whom President Barack Obama appointed to the U.S. District Court in Utah last year, issued an opinion on Friday declaring that a right to same-sex marriage is "deeply rooted in the nation’s history and implicit in the concept of ordered liberty.

Shelby was confirmed to the federal bench by a voice vote of the Senate on Sept. 21, 2012. There was no debate over his nomination, and no senator objected to his confirmation.

He has now issued an opinion that could fundamentally alter American law and culture.

“The State’s second argument is that the Plaintiffs are really seeking a new right, not access to an existing right,” Shelby wrote in an opinion issued on the afternoon of the Friday before Christmas.

“To establish a new fundamental right, the court must determine that the right is ‘deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition’ and ‘implicit in the concept of ordered liberty,’ such that ‘neither liberty nor justice would exist if [it] were sacrificed,” he said.

This unanimously-confirmed, not-debated-on-the-Senate-floor, Obama-nominated judge then proceeded to do that just that.

This meat head found the right for homosexuals to marry in the 5th Amendment ... somewhere between protection against self-incrimination and double jeopardy.

Why is a federal judge deciding state law?

I think he is from the school which thinks if you make a huge lie, people will more likely believe it than if you tell a little one.

Now, just where in the holy hell did he find the precedent for this? Where? Same place as 40 watt-60 watt light bulbs, privacy, abortions, penumbras, seatbelts, etc? Is this guy a total jackass?

Indeed, it appears that in 1776 colonial America, male homosexuals were UNIVERSALLY SUBJECT TO THE DEATH PENALTY...

Which is why so many homos were “married” beginning in the 18th century.

Deeply rooted in American History? Thomas Jefferson thought men who have sex with men suffer castration. If it is women having sex with women, then they are to have part of their faces gouged out.

In our post modernist age black can be white; war can be peace (see Islam); and freedom can be slavery.

Well Obama said the Islam played an important role in the nation’s founding. Why wouldn’t he appoint a dunderhead that said, “Right to Same-Sex Marriage Is ‘Deeply Rooted in Nation’s History’?”

These two seem like they’d get along fine in a Chicago bath-house.

A federal judge is deciding state law because Utah is one of those state with a state constitutional amendment defining marriage. So their state judges are powerless to overturn marriage laws. Homosexual activists decided to sue in federal court, and the liberal judge made up a new law.

Homosexual marriage is deeply rooted in our nation’s history? Is this guy for real?

Anybody wonder why there is lessened respect for the law and judges, when the legal reasoning involved in the homosexual marriage cases are so absurd?????
