Supreme Court To Consider Homosexual "Marriage"


Fox News is reporting:

"The Supreme Court will take up California's ban on same-sex marriage, a case that could give the justices the chance to rule on whether gay Americans have the same constitutional right to marry as heterosexuals.

The justices said Friday they will review a federal appeals court ruling that struck down the state's gay marriage ban, though on narrow grounds. The San Francisco-based appeals court said the state could not take away the same-sex marriage right that had been granted by California's Supreme Court.

The court also will decide whether Congress can deprive legally married gay couples of federal benefits otherwise available to married people. A provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act limits a range of health and pension benefits, as well as favorable tax treatment, to heterosexual couples.

The cases probably will be argued in March, with decisions expected by late June."

Most who are actively involved in the defense of traditional marriage are happy about the prospect of the Supreme Court ruling in favor of DOMA and traditional marriage.

Penny Nance of Concerned Women of America also weighed in on the issue in a statement late Friday.

"By taking these cases, the Supreme Court has the opportunity to affirm our most cherished values by preserving the American people's right to define marriage as the union between one man and one woman. Those who persist in forcing their preferred redefinition of marriage on the country by rule of law stand squarely against everything on which this country was founded - most notably against the freedom of religion, which they argue should be suppressed whenever it interferes with their newly discovered constitutional 'right' to homosexual 'marriage'."

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, chairman of the bishops' Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, has responded to the decision to hear the two gay marriage cases by praying for the court.

"The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to hear these cases is a significant moment for our nation," Archbishop Cordileone said. "I pray the court will affirm the fact that the institution of marriage, which is as old as humanity and written in our very nature, is the union of one man and one woman. Marriage is the foundation of a just society, as it protects the most vulnerable among us, children. It is the only institution that unites children with their mothers and fathers together. We pray for the court, that its deliberations may be guided by truth and justice so as to uphold marriage's true meaning and purpose."

Well said. I think all of us who hold to traditional marriage and values will be praying as well.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.

  1. Awaiting Oshtur Vishanti's vitriol statement for today. For someone who has such a capacity for hate, Oshtur seems to spend an awful lot of time obsessing over the viewpoints of those whom he opines as "haters". Kind of like the trolling seen on Yahoo, etc message boards where you see thrown out oppositional statements only for the reaction.

  2. I do not understand. Who ever said that homsexuals can't get married?? They just have to follow the rules. Find one of the opposite sex and get married.
    In nature, be humans, animals, or inanimate objects, marriage means joining two items together to make one unit. No one is ever asked about their sex orientation when asked to be married. Example, the only way to make one magnet out of two is to join opposites N-pole with S-pole. You cannot join two equals to make one. N-pole cannot be joined with another N-pole
    That and only that is marriage.

    1. Couldn't agree more. They can get all the fulfillment they need in a fake hetero marriage. Just ask Larry Craig and others.
