The Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage nationwide

Business Insider – by Erin Fuchs

The Supreme Court has just ruled that gay marriage is legal nationwide.

Justice Anthony Kennedy issued the ruling, finding that the Fourteenth Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex.  

We will update this post with more on the ruling.

The justices explored two key questions about same-sex unions during their arguments in April:

1) Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex?

2) Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state?

This was the second time America’s high court took up same-sex marriage. The first time, in June 2013, the high court struck down a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), allowing the US government to recognize same-sex marriages in states where they were already legal.

But the high court declined to rule on the broader question about gay marriage: Is there a Constitutional right to gay marriage?

The court’s 2013 decision on DOMA has spawned battles across the country over same-sex marriage — including one in Alabama, where courts have issued conflicting rulings leading to an uncertain fate for gay couples.

That latest case reviewed a decision by the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit to uphold same-sex marriage bans in Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, and Kentucky, and looked at whether those bans violated the Fourteenth Amendment.

That amendment guarantees Americans “equal protection under the law” and the right to “due process of law.”

In their petition asking the Supreme Court to hear the case, same-sex couples argued that Kentucky’s same-sex marriage ban “marks the same-sex relationships and the families they create as less valuable and less worthy of respect than opposite-sex relationships.”

That mark creates a stigma, the petition continued, which is “incompatible with the bedrock Constitutional principles animating the Fourteenth Amendment.”

  1. So much for that! Damn this country! Where on this earth can I go to get away from this insanity??!! People, do you realize that a “normal” life has been eradicated in a blink of an eye just now? We have fallen…..

  2. Don’t it just piss y’all off when the god damn government use the constitution for their benefit but never for the peoples, hope these bastards swing real soon, this offends me, where’s my rights! oh yeah thats right i aint got any.

  3. I’ll put it as simple as I can: I hereby officially withdraw my consent for them to govern. I will redouble my efforts to acquire assets for personal defense. The Republic is lost and all that’s left , is the LEFT! SCREW their so called authority!

  4. I’m supposed to go to work today at 2pm….I don’t even want to work and pay taxes at this point in time. Why should we work….for this s..t??!!
    This government has been given up by God. Read Romans Chapter 1. God gives them over to a reprobate mind…..

  5. Memphis Mayor Wants to Dig Up Dead Confederate War General
    “Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton wants to dig up the bodies of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife and remove them from a city park in the latest and perhaps most despicable example of the anti-Southern cleansing spreading across the nation.”
    It is irrelevant that the likelihood of this Godless treason
    happening is extremely unlikely.
    What matters is that it has been proposed and is being
    discussed by the (elected) traitorous communists of Memphis.
    That is how far down the rabbit hole these open (hot war) attacks
    have gone.

  6. Historic Beaufort church removes Confederate battle flags from grounds – The flags are decorating soldiers’ graves
    That’s what you get when so-called Patriots spend all their time
    (frothing at the mouth) waiting to attack anyone accurately criticizing
    the worthless sacred cows and their non-strategy, which is helping traitorous and treasonous communists destroy our Republic without a single blow thrown,
    fight, or shot being fired.

  7. We’re officially the new Sodom. Stand by for the Most High to express His displeasure. Everyone knows when a nation embraces this kind of twisted, reprobate crap, only good things follow. Prepare for one heck of a show.

    No covenant with the Almighty, no allegiance from me. We’re through!

    1. One way we’ll know the end times is here is when the Supremes (Diana Ross and Co. should sue these bastards for copyright infringement!) make trans-species marriage, say, between human and dog, legal, or marriage between human and transhuman, legal.

      Do not forget that before Christ returns it’ll be like it was in the days of Noah: In the days of Noah (Genesis 6) there were “giants” on the Earth (called Nephelim by some, Gibborhim and Rephahim by others), which were the offspring of the fallen angels (“Sons of God”) and “daughters of men”, as well as men doing evil continually. The Satanic elites are building portals or gateways for the fallen to return, as well as the elites promoting transhumanism. Noah was the only true human left and his family (his son’s wives may be a different matter), which was why he and his family members were saved. Could be those who accept non-human DNA will be separated from those who don’t, or those who accept sex with the same sex or animals or the fallen whatever will be separated out as well.

      1. DL – you are well informed. Not many know of the Mathew 24 and Gen 6 connection. It’s pretty wild and what a trip it will be. Men’s hearts will surely fail them when they see what will come upon the earth.
        As of right now, I believe CERN is designed to finish the job of portals and gateways. A “master key”. I could be wrong but with what is being disclosed by those scientists there, I’m strongly leaning in that direction.
        Nimrod was not a Gibborhim, he became one. I believe it was a process of some kind. Sort of like the singularity and trans-humanism stuff being pushed now.
        And let’s not forget about those chimeras. That’s a freak show just waiting to happen.

        Mat 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe (NOAH)entered into the ark,
        Mat 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

        1. Mat 24:39 “AND KNEW NOT” until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. GO LOOK IN THE MIRROR!
          Thank you for playing. Have a nice day.

  8. Welcome to America !!! A country run by degenerate, perverted, homosexual ( don’t say gay, it originally meant happy or gleeful ), pedophile drug addicts !!! F@$K ME. My Country My Ass . . . . .

  9. Well I guess this happened because the US govt. “stabbed Israel in the back,” as many Christian Zionists believe…on the other hand, maybe it’s because these same Christian Zionists, who are anti-Christ, wittingly or not, “bless” Israel (which they do supposedly to follow Genesis 12:3), a nation that is running out of water fast, that incarcerates its fellow Jews (Ethiopians and others not Ashkenazim), and that persecutes believers in Christ, regardless of ethnicity. Memo to Christian Zionists: either serve Christ or Israel. You cannot serve both (or as Jesus put it, one cannot serve god and Mammon).

  10. Nothing but a distraction so they can pass along the TPP as well as a further act of deterioration of our country and yet people just sit and do absolutely nothing or say, “I DON’T CARE!”. That’s the problem with this country. Too many people who just “don’t care” as long as it doesn’t effect them. Soon these Commies will attack something that WILL effect everyone as a whole and that is when this country will explode in war and when the sh*t will truly hit the fan.
