SCOTUS Gay Marriage Opinions

DOMA - Federal law which allows one state to refuse to recognize a marriage from another state, and which federally bans gay marriage.

Section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional. The rest of DOMA still remains. This means that federal law must recognize same-sex marriage, but since Section 2 remains standing, states are still free to refuse to recognize a marriage from another state. That will likely be challenged in a future court case.

5-4 decision, Kennedy and the 4 liberals. The conservatives are split with 3 dissents.


Prop 8 - California Gay Marriage ban.

The 9th circuit appeal is dismissed due to lack of standing. We now know definitively that if the state government refuses to defend a state proposition, the prop sponsers can still go to court, but they can not appeal if they lose. The decision by the 9th circuit is also gone. Judge Vaughn Walker's ruling stands, and is final. Gay Marriage is legal in CA.

5-4 decision, Roberts, Scalia, and 3 of the liberals. Kennedy, Alito, Thomas, and Sotomayor would have found standing and proceeded to the merits. The question on whether a fundamental right to gay marriage exists countrywide will have to wait for another day.

Then why do you spend all day posting hate-filled rants in this forum? Does that benefit you in some way?

The tears from this ruling are going to be fun to watch for a few days. This thread already delivers.

Nothing like religious nuts freaking out:



And for the millionth time, Marriage benefits include way more than taxes or any type of government handout.

Anyone who says the government shouldn't be in marriage doesn't have a clue what they are talking about. Government has been in Marriage since English Common Law for a variety of reasons.

It ensures you get into the hospital to see your partner. It ensures you are consulted on treatment.

It ensures veteran benefits are giving out to the spouse if the other dies.

It protects your property to pass on to the person you wish.

All of which, like I predicted, are governed under equal protection.

Will, you can only marry something that can sign a legal contract. That removes all non humans.

I also want to point out the hypocrisy of Scalia.

I'll have more to say about the downfall of one of Bill Clinton's signature policy initiatives in a while, but I'd be remiss if, in light of yesterday's day of jubilee regarding the Voting Rights Act, I didn't point out what an incredible passel of Janus-faced thooleramawns the Supreme Court's conservative faction is. Quoth Antonin (Short Time) Scalia, from his dissent from the DOMA ruling:

Quote:
It is an assertion of judicial supremacy over the people's Representatives in Congress and the Executive. It envisions a Supreme Court standing (or rather enthroned) at the apex of government, empowered to decide all constitutional questions, always and everywhere "primary" in its role.
In other words, we can throw out Congress's considered judgment on voting-rights, but we must adhere to it strictly on the issue of what people do with the pee-pees and hoo-hahs as that relates to marriage."

You were really upset about Jason Collins breaking up with his girlfriend, I recall. How did that affect you?

They would get my 10K checks. (If I was a Democrat anyway)

Scalia should be aware enough of history to know that this was decided long ago. He's a pompous dick.
