OD’s worldview is confirmed once again:
“CINCINNATI (AP) — A federal judge ordered Ohio authorities Monday to recognize gay marriages on death certificates, saying that the state’s ban on such unions is unconstitutional and that states cannot discriminate against same-sex couples simply because some voters don’t like homosexuality.
Although Judge Timothy Black’s ruling applies only to death certificates, his statements about Ohio’s gay-marriage ban are sweeping, unequivocal and expected to incite further litigation challenging the law. …”
For those who are keeping score, the Iowa Supreme Court imposed “gay marriage” on that state in 2009, the US Supreme Court more or less killed California’s Proposition 8 over the summer, the New Mexico Supreme Court recently ruled that “gay marriage” was legal there, and this morning the same federal judge who imposed “gay marriage” on Utah ordered that “gay marriages” could continue there.
Now comes the news that a federal judge in Ohio has decided that Ohio’s ban on “gay marriage” is unconstitutional, but this ruling only applies to death certificates – the next federal court ruling will demolish the amendment to the state constitution. US District Court Judge Timothy Black added that “once you get married lawfully in one state, another state cannot summarily take your marriage away.”
The states that have approved “gay marriage” now include: Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Illinois, Minnesota, Washington, and Hawaii. Iowa, California, Utah, and New Mexico have been added to that list due to legal challenges.
Where do you suppose “gay marriage” is headed next? Probably to the remaining Northern and Western states before it is unilaterally imposed on the South (where it is banned in some form in every Southern state) by other US federal judges. There is already such a federal lawsuit in Alabama.
Once again, we see that it doesn’t matter who or what we vote for at the state or the federal level in the South – whether it is in presidential elections, where the South voted against Obama twice, or state immigration laws, which were passed by electorates in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina, only to be gutted by federal courts – the existence of the Union is what has made “representative government” impossible here.
The existence of the Union is what has brought down on us all the federal civil rights laws, affirmative action, the welfare state, cultural degeneration, two terms of Barack Obama, millions of illegal aliens, legal immigration from the Third World, etc. Assuredly, the next step forward to “progress” will be “gay marriage,” undoubtedly at the hands of the Northeastern-controlled federal government through the US federal court system which will pronounce that the definition of marriage is “unconstitutional.”
The worst mistake in our entire history was to ratify that “constitution” in the first place. Now it is being used to railroad us into “gay marriage” in exactly the same way that its earliest critics feared it would be used.
