    Judge strikes down gay-marriage ban in Ala.


    MONTGOMERY, Ala. — A federal court Friday struck down Alabama's ban on same-sex marriage, saying it violated gay and lesbian couples' equal protection and due process rights. In a 10-page decision, Callie V.S. Granade, a district judge for the U.S. Southern District of Alabama, wrote that the state had failed to prove any "rational, much less compelling" link between prohibiting same-sex marriage and having more children raised in "the biological family structure the state wishes to promote." "The Attorney General does not explain how allowing or recognizing same-sex marriage between two consenting adults will prevent heterosexual parents or other biological kin from caring for their biological children," wrote Granade.


    thats like 38 states depending on if we are counting stayed/partial states or not.
    here we are 25+ cases and 45+ judges ruling in favor of EQUAL RIGHTS

    this is ANOTHER judge (appointed by Bush) that ruled it unconstitutional and mentioned equal protection, due process, the 14th, marriage is fundamental right, and loving vs Virginia etc etc

    such a huge conspiracy, all this rouge activist judges LMAO

    All good news, now we just need a reasonable Supreme Court decision.

    The good news is people still making a mess of this issue today will end up in the history books next to racists of the 50s and 60s. And probably spoken about in similar context.

    to be honest im not really worried about SCOTUS at all . . . .
    I mean of course "anything" is possible but unless its one of those super weird narrow rullings where they punt and delay (until after the circuit cases) they arent going to rule in anyway except FOR equal rights

    i asked the question before and havent gotten anythign back on it and I cant find anything myself but in all of history how many lower courts (total) has SCOTUS gone against?

    Meaning at this time if they didnt rule in favor of equal rights it would go against 25+ rulings and 45+ judges, and my numbers are probably rounding down, has that been done before? how likely is it?

    Probably--history books are full of lies. George Washington didn't have wooden teeth.

    thats EXACTLY what is happening. Those idiots are viewed just the same as the racists that didnt want to serve blacks or people that didnt want to employee women etc etc. They are no more than bigots that dont want to respect equal rights of others.

    theres two things on thier side, people cant break the law and practice illegal discrimaintion and money talks, if bigots choose to be criminals and close down thier shops somebody else will open up and take that money.

    I wonder if a supreme court ruling could **** the GOP. I think the GOP could possibly benefit from the issue going away.
