    Krauthammer on Gay Marriage Decision: "Whatever You Think About The Policy, It Is A Huge Loss For A Democracy" | Video | RealClearPolitics

    SHANNON BREAM, FOX NEWS: Justice Kennedy said this was, writing for the majority, a constitutional, fundamental right that same-sex couples be allowed to marry.

    CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER
    : Yes, well, that's what he declared because that was the preference of the five justices. But I think as was convincingly argued by the dissents, and there were many of them, this is an invention -- like the invention of the right to abortion. Whatever you believe about the policy for abortion or here for gay rights, the idea that the court should decree that it's a constitutional right, something that had been hidden in the constitution for over 100 years and that nobody had ever discerned is simply a way of saying that it has been removed from the democratic arena. It can no longer be debated. All the laws are canceled and we are now in a new place.

    Ironically, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who's on the court today, once said before she ascended to the court that the abortion decision had prevented a stable social settlement of the abortion issue that was headed in the reform direction because it took it out of the political arena. That's exactly what happened today on gay marriage. Whatever you think about the policy, it is a huge loss for a democracy

    Love it.

    Keep it up. The left needs to continue to throw these vindictives around. Actually they need to step it up. Keep calling people who believe in the sanctity of marriage " bigots ". Keep calling critics of this President " racist "

    I promise it won't backfire on you one bit in 2016......

    Bush's legacy was intended to 'defend the institution of marriage' and to stop terrorism, both of which he failed miserably at

    Yeah, the right to marry is an "invention", just like when Justice Warren declared:

    " Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man,""

    Charles decides to divert to the false equivalence of abortion.

    Yes because our current commander and chief's attempt to stop terror is so successful....

    Bush had something called character. He didn't " evolve ' on issues because it was Politically convenient and had the COURAGE and the integrity to stand by his beliefs.

    Obama must be a shell of a man. His core beliefs constantly in flux depending on the latest poll.

That has got to be the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. It's plain crap. It not only presumes to know God's mind and know what "God's light" looks like, it also places homosexuality as a much higher sin or more important sin in God's perspective than all those other things.
    Try reading the Bible and learn God's message and what he says about men lying with men and women who do the same.

    I'm pretty sure the Founding fathers didn't see the need to add the definition of marriage into the constitution. they could have never realized in a million years people would actually be ALTERING the definition of marriage and make it law. They didn't understand the First World problems we now get to deal with. I'm sure they are sorry they missed it.

    Scalia says in the dissent that the ruling paves the way for polygamy to become legal. he's correct. when the liberal justices are done the word "marriage" will be so different as to be unrecognizable to it's original definition. and once polygamy is added, what's next? can't wait to find out.

    Congratulations, America, on delivering a one-two-three punch to conservatives over the past week or so.
