Sundance at 30: Vintage Photos of Park City's Biggest Stars Lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies, who successfully fought to overturn California's Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage, were on hand for a Q&A that followed a sustained standing ovation after the film's credits rolled. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court. VIDEO: 5 Breakout Stars at this Year's Sundance Film Festival But the pair said the battle will continue as legislation and legal maneuvering is introduced in states that have not benefited from a Supreme Court ruling like California, where the High Court struck down the controversial proposition in June. "The goal is to have marriage equality in all 50 states in five years," Olson said. If you look at the progress that has been made since June, I think you can see that we are well on our way." Olson and Boies have joined a case that is pending in Virginia. "There will be a variety of processes," Olson said of the legal strategy moving forward. "You will see it in some states by legislation. You will see it in some states by a state court. And you will see it in states where it doesn't work in a federal court. We've seen it in a federal court here in Utah in the past couple of weeks."

Sorry for all the crud before the story. Don’t know where it came from.
A lot of websites insert the “crud” by using Java scripts. Best to disable Java on those websites if they do that.
Yes it is a benefit to have a bunch of men in black stomp all over your states right to govern itself.
Yes it is a great benefit to have a court rule that the constitution means something completely different than it meant yesterday and for the last 200 years.
Yes it is a great benefit that a bunch of robed Leftist can decide that the people of a state that they are totally wrong and should be treated like so many petulant children because they voted overwhelmingly not to have their culture and society altered in to something totally unrecognizable to please a tiny minority.
No matter what kooky laws are passed, homosexuality will never be “normal”. In fact, the radicals reek of totalitarianism. Bob
No cruddier than queer acts themselves.
>> Putin’s looking better & better.
While Putin’s concern for sexual morality is seemingly attractive, he’s not completely on board with US Constitutional law. But it’s something he should consider...
Welcome to FR!
Ted Olsen is the idiot that forces his sense of fairness onto others; e.g., bakers, photographers, Churches, school children... In other words, he’s a scumbag.
Hell, with 50 judges, gay marriage will be legal everywhere.
My niece wants unicorns in all 50 states. Wanting them, pretending that they exist, or even a new law will not make unicorns real.
Putin’s looking better & better.
Redford is a POS liberal that should have been tossed over that cliff that he and Newman seemed to leap off of in the movie. ....I can’t stand the guy.
I think he only made two other movies that were good: The Sting and (I think) The Mackintosh Man. Everything since those has been nothing but crap.
The gay stalinists aren’t interested in changing hearts & minds of the people anymore I see.
Surrender the Social issues and wind up in jail for dissent. Happening in Europe.
To what shall we compare a generation that confuses emulation with reality and mistakes wishes for rights, as when it equates the lifelong blood relationship of marriage with multiple, temporary same-sex relationships, and then casts aspersions on those who insist on clear distinctions?
They are like a gaggle of disgruntled chess players, who, upon consistently losing the game, demand that all chess pieces be made equal, or that a king be made a queen, and then cast aspersions on those who point out the game would no longer be chess.
In this case, however, the argument is not with the World Chess Organization, but with the Creator, who made man in His own image, made them male and female from the beginning, and blessed them and said to them, be fruitful and multiply.
REFERENCE---Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals

FR Posted Friday, August 02, 2013 by coldphoenix
Using the same tactics used by gay rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.
Critics of the homosexual lifestyle have long claimed that once it became acceptable to identify homosexuality as simply an alternative lifestyle or sexual orientation, logically nothing would be off limits.
Gay advocates have taken offense at such a position insisting this would never happen. However, psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined several years ago.

BE VERY VERY AWARE...perverts come in all shapes and sizes--- and are very persuasive. Single mothers with young children are warned that these lowlife pedophiles will do anything---even marry the mothers---to get ahold of the kids.
CASE IN POINT One TV segment aired a mom in despair---her child kept telling her that the new hubby was molesting her. But the mom refused to believe her charming, lovable husband was a perv.....til it was too late.
CASE IN POINT Carrie Fisher writes about Debbie Reynold's 2nd husband Harry Karl walking around w/ no underwear....flashing his genitals to the youngsters (probably getting a thrill).
Debbie was completely oblivious----she, herself, tells how Karl courted her assiduously---and showed inordinate attention to her two youngsters....which convinced her to accept his marriage proposal.
But Harry Karl was a lowlife of the first order---stole all Debbie's money and her jewelry. The marriage failed ---Debbie had to sleep in her car---Karl walked away with all her money.
No reports yet about the Fisher kids being molested---but kids tend to block out these horrendous experiences.
CASE IN POINT One of the most celebrated Hollywood figures was George Jessel---who married a very young girl when he was at an advanced age (among his several wives).
In her autobio, Shirley Temple recalled that pedophile Jessel exposed himself to her when she was a child star.
Unicorns are fake. Faggots are real and in our faces. This is the stuff that can cause civil war when added to the rest of Marxist agenda that the regime is foisting upon us.
These people would make Mr. Hankey sick.
I want gay marriage in the states that vote for it, and only in those.
The real question in that case is — what does the federal government do with regard to immigration, veteran’s benefits and so on?
Follow the majority of the states? Follow the majority of the population?
Unicorns are fake. Mental illness and perversion are real. Gay “marriage” goes into the first category - fake - and will never count as marriage in the minds of normal people.
What you stated is why marriage must forever be between a man and a woman. It can never work. Perhaps some of our states should be allowed to leave this decaying satanic federation... I want no part of mocking GOD.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”
I FREELY EXERCISE THAT GOD DEFINES MARRIAGE AND I WILL EXERCISE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO RECOGNIZE A satanic CONTRACT BETWEEN DAMNED SOULS.
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.
Then the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him. Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.
Now when Jesus had finished these sayings, he went away from Galilee and entered the region of Judea beyond the Jordan. And large crowds followed him, and he healed them there. And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause? He answered, Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?
Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,
1 Corinthians 7:1-16
Now concerning the matters about which you wrote: It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman. But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
He answered, Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?
1 Corinthians 6:9
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,
If any man takes a wife and goes in to her and then hates her and accuses her of misconduct and brings a bad name upon her, saying, I took this woman, and when I came near her, I did not find in her evidence of virginity, then the father of the young woman and her mother shall take and bring out the evidence of her virginity to the elders of the city in the gate. And the father of the young woman shall say to the elders, I gave my daughter to this man to marry, and he hates her; and behold, he has accused her of misconduct, saying, I did not find in your daughter evidence of virginity. And yet this is the evidence of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloak before the elders of the city.
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
Then the man said, This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
Then the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.
Great movie but the other actors were far better and out shined him by a country mile.
