Skip to comments.Judge: Utah must honor same-sex marriages performed during 17-day window
Posted on 05/19/2014 9:51:02 PM PDT by Oliviaforever
A federal judge ruled Monday that Utah must recognize and imbue all same-sex marriages performed in the state with the same rights and privileges afforded to married opposite-sex couples.
Chief among those rights, the judge noted, are the right to property, inheritance, legal protection and "the custody and care of children" an issue at the center of a state challenge to three state court judges decisions to grant adoptions to married gay couples.
U.S. District Judge Dale A. Kimball became the first federal judge ever to order a state to acknowledge and honor all gay and lesbian marriages performed after the states ban on same-sex unions was overturned.

The state has to tell the Federal judge he is wrong. And the state has to issue a statement saying no marriages performed during that time will be honored!! Deal with it.
At the very least, this judge needs to be ignored...
That is the second time I have seen that today.
What does that mean, “ignore him”?
Silly and absurd. Judicial decisions that violate Darwinian law are not wise.
This federal over reach has gone too far.
Now we have 3 lesbians marrying and having a child with a Mans sperm.
This is Satan’s ground, no good can come of it.

This is lame. A will can provide these Rights to anyone even Heterosexuals shacking up.
The War against religion train is leading to the gas chambers.
It is a war on the Church.
just don’t do it.
screw fedgov. funsa.
So I am losing track of the perverts track record - does this make state #19 or was UT previously in the count of 18 states that now honor sodomy?
As mentioned in related threads, please consider the following.
Regardless of PC, pro-gay interpretations of the 14th Amendment’s equal protections clause, the states have never amended the Constituiton to expressly protect so-called gay rights. In fact, the Constitution’s silence about both gay “rights” and marriage means that the states are free to make laws which discriminate against gay agenda issues, as long as such laws don’t unreasonably abridge constitutionally enumerated rights.
The reason that activist judges are getting away with promoting gay “rights” from the bench is the following imo. Sadly, parents have not been making sure that their children are being taught the Constitution, particularly 10th Amendment-protected state powers versus enumerated rights, non-enumerated rights in the case of gay issues. Neither are children being taught the difference between legislative and judicial powers. So although low-information citizens know that something is wrong when judges decide gay rights cases in favor of the gay agenda, they don’t know enough about the Constitution and basic government powers to argue their convictions.
Where activist federal judges are concerned, citizens need to do the following. Citizens need to work with their federal lawmakers to make punitive laws which require judges to promptly, clearly and publicly state specific constitutional clauses to justify their decisions. And if the Constitution is silent about a particular issue, making the issue state power issue, then judges need to indicate that also.
Now is the time for governors with backbones to stand up. Are there any?
Just what are we supposed to do about these unelected federal tyrants that continue to push perversion against the will of the people of the several states?
We cannot vote them out, and they do not give a rat’s tail about our objections to their activism.
Are we supposed to just stand around and take it while they destroy every last vestige of decency so to give the sodomite reprobates all they need to totally destroy whatever is left of marriage?
Where do we draw the line and what do we do to stop these politically corrupt and morally bankrupt black robed monsters?
What could the judge do if Utah refused to follow his order and instead honored the wishes of it’s citizens?
How about this...he made a ruling, now let him enforce it.
States need to just say no
Enforce what? The people are legally married and have a license, who is going to not honor it?
“What could the judge do if Utah refused to follow his order and instead honored the wishes of its citizens?”
I imagine that question would be kicked straight to the SCOTUS and the Roberts Court would order the Justice Department to enforce the current orders.
Obama would the sent in troops.
Obama would sent in troops.
It’s been done before.
