    Federal Judge Rules Va. Gay Marriage Ban Unconstitutional

    Federal Judge Rules Va. Gay Marriage Ban Unconstitutional


    A federal judge ruled late Thursday evening Virginia's gay marriage ban is unconstitutional.
    U.S. District Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen's decision makes Virginia the second state in the South to have a ban on gay marriages overturned.

    Eight years ago, Virginians voted to constitutionally define marriage between a man and a woman. Thursday, Wright ruled the ban violated the due process and equal protection clauses of the 14th Amendment.
    and another one
    and another one
    and another one bites the dust

    even thought this one was stayed (which is awesome in itself because it will go to SCOTUS) the two court cases by FEDERAL judge have BIG TIME verbiage in them. not just saying equality or equal rights or unfair discrimination but UNCONSTITUTIONAL and VIOLATES THE 14th AMENDMENT

    HUGE steps
    this is awesome equal rights is coming and coming soon!!!!!

    Stupid is as stupid does, just because.

    BTW, not allowing people to contract unnatural marriages in no way constitutes racial voting discrimination, but I guess if you had any sense you would already know that.

    LOL

    Pat Robertson is a disgrace Karna is going to push him down a metal flight of stairs soon or later.

    like i said above and in the other post
    these two rullings are SOOOOOO HUGE!

    the fact that they were federal judges and they have to go to SCOTUS or one case like it and the fact that these judges just didn say just "equality" or "equal rights" or "discrimination" is so big.

    they mention how marriage is a right
    they mentioned the unequal and civil rights violations of women and minorities and compared them (which some topically uneducated posters say they arent comparable and call it hyperbole which is pure dishonest ignorance)
    and they say UNCONSTITUTIONAL and they say IT VIOLATES THE 14th AMENDMENT


    thats HUUUUUUUUUUGE to actually put it in thier ruling and directly say it

    it makes me so happy that im living during one of those times in america when we right one of our wrongs, when i was younger i thought id never see it

    Re: Federal Judge Rules Va. Gay Marriage Ban Unconstitutional

    I love how well she puts it too.

    “The legitimate purposes proffered by the Proponents for the challenged laws—to promote conformity to the traditions and heritage of a majority of Virginia’s citizens, to perpetuate a generally-recognized deference to the state’s will pertaining to domestic relations laws, and, finally, to endorse “responsible procreation”—share no rational link with Virginia Marriage Laws being challenged,” the judge wrote: “The goal and the result of this legislation is to deprive Virginia’s gay and lesbian citizens of the opportunity and right to choose to celebrate, in marriage, a loving, rewarding, monogamous relationship with a partner to whom they are committed for life. These results occur without furthering any legitimate state purpose.”
    She didn't beat around the bush at all about it. In simple terms, she told the proponents of the law that their reasoning holds no water in the law and has nothing whatsoever to do with marriage. Tradition is not valid. Enforcing the will of the people is not valid when it comes to a constitutional challenge. And the claim of "responsible procreation" is not valid (since without some major restrictions upon opposite sex marriages, marriage laws have nothing to do with procreation and limiting same sex couples from marriage in no way harms responsible procreation).

    Before we can go anywhere with this, you need to define natural. Be very careful with this, because many rights involve things which do not occur in nature. Good luck, have fun.

    Marriages themselves are unnatural, particularly legal marriages. People invented marriage, not nature. Mating is natural (various forms of mating), marriage is not.

    There is nothing wrong with something being unnatural.

    Pretty sure that Agent J just mis-typed on that, particularly since the article...which he quoted...say's the 14th...which he also quoted, and put in nice bright red...something that is very hard to miss for most people.

    And how is it stupid for them to uphold peoples right to get married? We have a long history of judges affirming that getting married is a right so its not like it sets any new precedent.
