NO, Scalia warned about this very thing, and now the LGBT mafia is going from state to state, using the federal judge judiciary to overrule the will of the people.
Putting it in the Constitution of the state won’t mean a thing....that is what happened in California.....And it was ripped out by federal judges AND state officials who refused to enforce the law. The people were LITERALLY ignored.
“Will this ever stop?”
No. The best thing VA could do in my view is get out of the marriage licensing business entirely. That probably won’t happen. So second best would be for heterosexual couples to decide they have no interest in the state licensing scheme and get married in church without a license.
As it stands, in 20 years or so about the only people who will be getting marriage licenses anyway will be homosexuals. Getting the license is so disadvantageous for heterosexual couples, particularly for men, that it’s going the way of the dodo bird.
What a horrible day that must have been. I made it out alive the following year.
Will this ever stop?
I think we have lost this one. So many states are becoming gay marriage that it is almost overwhelming. Only 3 states had voters vote for gay marriage and with state rights that is the ONLY ones with gay marriage even though it is a tragedy that people would be that stupid. However, every other state that has a judge implement gay marriage should be banned and not allowed.
THIS is why Indiana is trying to put in in our State Constitution.
They dropped it. It is not happening. Just happened yesterday.
Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee Introduce State Marriage Defense Act
Lets see how good Ted Cruz is at getting things done ..God help us. He can’t seem to convince anybody that this is good for the country and we want him for President. Like everything he has done, this will not pass and it is all for show. I am sorry but until he can do one thing that ends up with a result then I am not impressed with him. He reminds me so much of Obama with his gift to talk and not show a single result.
Perhaps- but it would take either a marriage amendment to the Federal Constitution or a civil war to put things right.
good thing Virginians didn’t vote for that rino Cuccinelli. <sarc
No thanks to all who did not vote in 2012.
Maybe seeing the destruction that is happening will convince the Republicans to put a conservative up in 2016 so it is worthwhile voting. The Republican Party needs to wake up not the voters using their principles.
Bingo! Exactly right. This needs to be shouted high and low. There is NO discrimination.
It won’t matter. They will find the amendment to your state constitution federally unconstitutional. They have already done it elsewhere.
There is no way out. This is leftist tyranny. We let them stack the judgeships for years, and now they are overwhelming the people.
Notice that they do this soon after they win the Governorship and AG. They govern against the will of the people, because they know that they can get away with it. Just like Obama.
Elections have consequences. But more fundamentally, rampant, unrepentant, rebellion against God has consequences.
It still has to be approved by a panel. She just put a stay on it.
Its only constitutional when they win. They havent won yet.
We have not had a republic for some time.
But here is the point that I think everyone is missing. Homosexuals have the same right to marry someone of the opposite sex as heterosexuals.
How can this be a “denial” of equal protection?
Thus we see the fruit of Relativism. 100% anti law. 100% perfect for dictatorships.
I now fully believe that this nation is under God’s judgement, or at least that He has turned His face away from us. According to the Bible, when He does this, He turns the people over to rampant homosexuality.
The gifts of Mitt Romney following the decision of the Massachusetts State Supreme Court seem to never end.
If we all pray for Ted Kennedy, things will get much better.
The folks that voted Democrat since the late 60`s are responsible and have blood on their hands.
We know how this ends baring intervention from God, He would have to change the hearts of several of the evil Democrats on Supreme Court
Outside of that, we need to take back the power we wrongly gave to the court to rule over us, was never intended for the high court to have this much power
Perhaps Mark Levin and Jay Sekulow should run for President with this agenda
?Wow! What is that thing?
Nope. Progressives never stop their assault on our way of life.
If Obama had a daughter that old, she’d look just like that.
The court didn’t strike down a law in VA. They struck down an amendment to our state Constitution that was passed with a very large margin.
Bullshit! Virginia voted overwhelmingly to enact a constitutional amendment protecting marriage.
this is all based on the illiterates of the legal profession buying the myth of “born that way”.
These judges (particularly female lawyers and judges) have this unscientific worldview of behavior is born that way.
In another time they would advocate for the physical flat earth, geo-centric universe, and dead people are innocent of witchcraft.
The legal profession, and judges, are a joke because ANYONE and I do mean ANYONE, with a four year degree can go to law school and sit for the bar exam.
Will this ever stop?
NO it will not until government is out of the marriage business. Stop issuing marriage licenses and start issuing civil contracts. Marriage should be the business of religion and pastors only.
Cutting your ears off to spite your face is a foolish policy.
And don’t forget that sorry POS newly elected AG by 20 votes, and who voted for REAL MARRIAGE in 2006 said last month he will not enforce the ban anymore. So along comes some lesbian judge to overrule the will of the will of the people, and when the case goes to the US Supreme Court, like it will, the Virginia AG will not fight for it, EXACTLY like prop
48 in California. So that means once again that a state will have queer “marriage” forced on them AFTER the people said HELL NO!!
As long as some so-called “federal” judge can overrule the will of the people, hell no it will never stop.
I was brought believing that if the people voted on something, then dammit, that was the law. Guess not.
And 9 out of 10 of these activist judges are either democrats or RINOs appointed by queer-friendly George W. Bush.
It won’t stop until the people start banning political activist judges.
Well, this one was a double qualifier for the position. One she is a woman. The second, she is married to a Jamacan Soccar player.
Gee, if Obama had a daughter...er, son...er, tranny relative that would be he/she/it
I wonder how much longer will americans tolerate these judges??? At some point one of these judges are going to get offed.
(not that I support violence, its just that at some point they are going to push people too far)
What is the will of the people (an election), when it makes no difference how they vote if some judge is going to have the power to override the election? I have never heard of anything so crazy in all my life. That’s why we have elections. If the Supreme Court should make anything illegal it’s judges overruling the will of the people. If that’s going to be the case in each and every state that has a democrat attorney general and has a constitutional amendment on the record (that the people have voted in), the worthless democrat is going to say it is unconstitutional. Accounting to who? Not according to the people that voted it in! How can a damn judge say he’s right and the majority of the people are wrong? Am I missing something here. If the US Supreme Court does not put a stop to this garbage, there’s no need in having elections. They mean nothing. How about a republican federal judge ruling that Obama’s election was based on fraud and kick his ass out of office? What in the hell is the difference? There is no difference!!
Ignoramus quoted text from the Declaration of Independence as being in the Constitution in her ruling.
Apparently she never had time to read the Constitution while in law school.
Ignorant, unqualified activist that owes her degrees and position on the bench to the racism of affirmative action. A lifetime of unconstitutional gibberish will be spewed from this woman. All of which will be nails in the coffin of the republic.
Mark Herring the new democrat Attorney General of Virginia was on CNN today and said it was a great day for Virginians. From the way he was talking he was the one that put the judge up to her ruling. Ken Cuccinelli was on last week talking about the Obama-stooge Herring, who won his race by about 20 votes. Cuccinelli was talking about Herring coming out within weeks after being declared the winner of the race and saying he would not enforce the states Constitutional ban on sodomite marriage. Cuccinelli then said that was strange considering he (Herring) supported the ban when the voters made it law. Cuccinelli goes on to say Herring is a political hypocrite and goes with flow. Obama wanted the ban lifted, so it was
lifted. Elections have consequence and Barry Bathhouse gets what he wants and he could care what the people want.
Let’s face it. Our republic is dead. It is a facade.
And hoping that a GOP majority in both houses of congress will change that is not wishful thinking. It is deluded thinking (I’m gonna get flamed for this) bordering on mental illness.
A whole lotta people out there need to start thinking about themselves and their families and number one priority.
Disclaimer: I will never stop fighting to get conservatives and right thinking people into congress, but I’m not foolish enough to think there is a realistic chance of stopping what is happening.
The GOPs bigger problem is electing RINOs like the Bushes to the White House. You might as well have a democrat.
Something I asked on another thread: Does that mean it is ok if the gay marriage issue is left to the states and so states like MA, NY and CA decide they are going to go ahead and have gay marriage while the states with traditional values decide to vote it down? I just want to know, would that be ok around here?
I mean, of course this is obscene and I would love to see Virginia be able to tell federal courts to just shove it, but if we were able to get that, would it be ok if this ideal scenario for VA and similar states also meant that states like NY or MA, that decide they do want gay marriage, would also have it? Or would that be considered unreasonable?
The Judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly working under ground to undermine the foundations of our confederated fabric.
...The Federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scarecrow), working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped from the States, and the government of all be consolidated into one.....
Pretty rare for the rotten old media to ever post a picture of these ugly little witches.
“Does that mean it is ok if the gay marriage issue is left to the states and so states like MA, NY and CA decide they are going to go ahead and have gay marriage while the states with traditional values decide to vote it down? I just want to know, would that be ok around here?”
If marriage was left up to the states, that is probably the way it would have went. But the malefactors and their allies will not rest until they have achieved total victory and have the Federal government impose it by law and force- and you can bet that will include forcing churches to marry gay couples at some point.
“... federal judge declared late Thursday ...”
Federal, not state judge. Even in leftist run states like Tax-a-pukus the redefinition of marriage is opposed. California too. A super majority of states in fact.
I believe that our Founding Fathers lived in a different world. Lynching mobs were common. They could not CONCEIVE of the situation we are in today — all except for Jefferson. He probably paid more attention than most to the French Revolution. The revolutionary government of France was ten times more wicked than the US even today. They executed people for being Christian in fact. This must have troubled Jefferson deeply.
This Obama judge literally does not know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
Why not the best?
Hey! The judge was wearing a Magic Black Costume. So it's All Good.
