AMERICA SPITS IN GOD’S FACE: The Supreme Court in a historic 5-4 ruling on Friday said there is a right to same-sex marriage in all 50 states, delivering a monumental win for gay rights across the country.
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: God destroyed both Sodom and Gomorrah for glorifying homosexuality, just as He brought down the Greek and Roman empires. America should be weeping over this, not celebrating. Our national day of Judgment is coming, and the fall of America will be great.
Justice Anthony Kennedy, often the swing vote on the court, sided with its more liberal members and authored the 34-page decision. He wrote that marriage is a “keystone of the nation’s social order” and that there is “no difference between same- and opposite-sex couples with respect to this principle.”
Kennedy then criticized that same-sex couples are denied the benefits that states have linked to marriage. “It is demeaning to lock same-sex couples out of a central institution of the nation’s society, for they too may aspire to the transcendent purposes of marriage,” he wrote.
Supporters of same-sex marriage cheered outside the Supreme Court as word of the decision leaked outside. Many held flags adorned with a blue and yellow equal sign, the logo of the LGBT advocacy group the Human Rights Campaign.
Marc Solomon, national campaign director for Freedom to Marry, called the decision a “profound victory.” “America has once again fulfilled its promise of the Constitution to another group of Americans,” he said.
Kennedy’s opinion declares that all states must recognize same-sex marriages under the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause. He swats down the argument promoted by those against same-sex marriage, who asserted that granting same-sex marriage would devalue or harm the institution of traditional marriage.
“Far from seeking to devalue marriage, the petitioners seek it for themselves because of their respect — and need — for its privileges and responsibilities,” he writes. “And their immutable nature dictates that same-sex marriage is their only real path to this profound commitment.” All four conservative justices wrote dissenting opinions, with Chief Justice John Roberts writing the longest, 29 pages, of which he read excerpts from the bench.
Chief Justice John Roberts told all the LGBT to “go out and celebrate” their victory!
Justice Antonin Scalia, fresh off of a scathing dissent in Thursday’s Affordable Care Act case, penned his own decision even though he said he completely agrees with Roberts’s views, in order to “call attention to this court’s threat to American democracy.”
Scalia writes that the outcome of the decision is not particularly important to him, and that he believes the law can recognize “whatever sexual attachments and living arrangements it wishes, and can afford them favorable civil consequences.” source
