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.

Meh. I'm not celebrating the ruling. I don't agree with any laws restricting marriage between adult citizens. I understand that this case wasn't going to accomplish the change I'd be happy with, but it's a step in the right direction. Meanwhile I will sit back and laugh at the dumbasses and dipshits pretending that society is now doomed because of it.

Yes, but he's been pretty consistent on this topic. From his dissent in Lawrence v. Texas which declared state laws against consensual sodomy unconstitutional:

Quote:
Today's opinion is the product of a Court, which is the product of a law-profession culture, that has largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda, by which I mean the agenda promoted by some homosexual activists directed at eliminating the moral opprobrium that has traditionally attached to homosexual conduct.... [T]he Court has taken sides in the culture war, departing from its role of assuring, as neutral observer, that the democratic rules of engagement are observed.

So imbued is the Court with the law profession's anti-anti-homosexual culture, that it is seemingly unaware that the attitudes of that culture are not obviously "mainstream"; that in most States what the Court calls "discrimination" against those who engage in homosexual acts is perfectly legal.
Then continues with this gem that makes Justice Scalia look like he'd be right at home on the CP DC forum:

"Let me be clear that I have nothing against homosexuals..."

(yes...I ripped those excerpts right from Wikipedia. I've read Lawrence a number of times independently)

I agree with both rulings. I thought they were both good ruling. We can't have laws based on outdated data. It's self defeating.

I just checked. It was a Reagan mistake.

I don't like that idea.

Same basic principle as why the civil rights act was passed in the first place. Why Kennedy sent in the national guard.

Some rights are not ever left up to the states. You know...like the ones in the constitution. States don't get to deny rights to anyone based on race, religion or creed.

Thats just a legal technicality. The SCOTUS doesn't throw out laws or rights based on technicalities with the law. But, I guess this conservative activist court can't help itself.

People who support gay marriage have higher education levels than those who don't.

So, let's piece this logical puzzle you've carved together.

Stupid people celebrate this ruling.

People with more education support the effect of this ruling.

Therefore, aliens.

MIssouri passed their gay marriage ban with 70% support, Kansas only mustered 69%. So yeah, huge difference in the two states on this issue. Massive.

Where is the right for this in Constitution?

I haven't read the case, but to my knowledge it wasn't decided as a right. It wasn't as simple as that. To my knowledge it had to do with other things.

So, I ask BRC, based on the claim in his post about certain rights he is referring to in the Constitution. He has to answer because he had something in mind.
I also, did not see the Federal Congress passing any laws that violate certain rights at least in the gay marriage ban in CA.
