Supreme Court Strikes Down DOMA

Tyler Durden's picture





 

In what is likely to cause a storm of controversy, the Supreme Court ruled against the 17-year-old anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act:

  • *DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT PROVISION STRUCK DOWN BY TOP U.S. COURT
  • *SUPREME COURT VOTES 5-4 ON U.S. DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT
  • *COURT SAYS MARRIAGE LAW VIOLATES EQUAL PROTECTION GUARANTEE

Kennedy: DOMA "humiliates tens of thousands of children now being raised by same-sex couples"

Scalia: "By formally declaring anyone opposed to same-sex marriage an enemy of human decency, the majority arms well every challenger to a state law restricting marriage to its traditional definition,"

"DOMA is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment."

 

Full Timeline of Gay Marriage (via Global Post):

Following is a timeline of important events in the history of gay marriage in the United States.

1969

- The modern gay liberation movement unofficially kicks off with the Stonewall Riots, demonstrations by gays in response to a police raid in New York City.

1972

- The U.S. Supreme Court lets stand a Minnesota Supreme Court ruling that the law does not allow for same-sex marriage, and that the issue is different from interracial marriage.

1973

- Maryland becomes the first state to pass a statute banning gay marriage.

1977

- Harvey Milk becomes the first openly gay elected official in San Francisco, winning a seat on the Board of Supervisors. He later appeals to gays to come out and run for office, saying "for invisible, we remain in limbo." Milk was shot and killed in 1978.

1986

- The U.S. Supreme Court says "we are quite unwilling" to find a fundamental right to sodomy, even in the privacy of one's home, in Bowers v. Hardwick ruling.

1996

- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy writes an opinion striking down a Colorado ban on protections for gays, saying the ban "seems inexplicable by anything but animus."

- President Bill Clinton signs the Defense of Marriage Act, defining marriage as between a man and a woman for federal purposes.

1997

- Comedian Ellen DeGeneres reveals she is gay. Shortly afterward, her TV situation comedy character says "I'm gay" - inadvertently speaking into an airport public address system.

1998

- Debut of television show "Will and Grace" about a gay man and his best friend, a straight woman.

2000

- Vermont becomes the first U.S. state to allow civil unions for same-sex couples.

- Republican vice presidential candidate Dick Cheney, who has a lesbian daughter, indicates he supports gay marriage, saying "freedom means freedom for everybody" and "people should be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to enter into." He said states should regulate the matter, not the federal government. Cheney serves as vice president for eight years.

2003

- The U.S. Supreme Court, in another decision written by Kennedy, strikes down Texas anti-sodomy law in Lawrence v. Texas case and reverses the 1986 Bowers ruling. Kennedy writes that this does not mean the government must recognize gay relationships. "Do not believe it," Justice Antonin Scalia dissents, saying the logic of the opinion points to allowing same-sex marriage.

- The Massachusetts Supreme Court rules in favor of same-sex marriage, and gay weddings begin in 2004.

2004

- San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom directs the county to allow same-sex marriages, arguing the state's voter-approved ban on gay marriage, Proposition 22, is unconstitutional. The state Supreme Court stops the weddings on grounds unrelated to the constitutionality of marriage.

2005

- U.S. northern neighbor Canada allows gay marriage.

2008

- California gay marriages become legal when the California Supreme Court strikes down the Proposition 22 ban. That November, voters add a ban to the state constitution - Proposition 8 - ending a summer of gay marriage.

2009

- Iowa state Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage.

- Federal court challenge to Proposition 8 filed, days before California Supreme Court lets Proposition 8 stand as a valid change to the state constitution. Eventually, federal district and appeals courts agree to strike down the ban, which heads to the U.S. Supreme Court.

2010

- The U.S. Congress passes legislation to end a policy put in place in 1993 called "don't ask don't tell" that had barred gays from serving openly in the U.S. military. President Barack Obama signs the measure. The policy officially ends in 2011.

2012

- Obama becomes the first U.S. president to endorse gay marriage, acknowledging that his views on the matter had evolved.

- North Carolina approves a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in May. In November, Maine, Maryland and Washington become the first states where voters approve same-sex marriage, and Minnesota rejects a new ban.

2013

- The U.S. Supreme Court in March hears oral arguments on the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

- The Boy Scouts of America organization votes in May to lift a century-old ban on openly gay scouts in a victory for gay rights activists. A prohibition on openly gay adult leaders remains in place.

- Minnesota, Rhode Island and Delaware in May become the latest U.S. states to allow same-sex couples to marry, bringing to 12 the number of states permitting it. The other states allowing same sex marriage are: Connecticut, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont and Washington state, as well as the District of Columbia.

- Supreme Court Strikes down DOMA...

State-sanctioned "marriage" is literally a commercial contract between two persons (not people) and the State.  It is a three-way commercial relationship, a merger of two corporations (persons).  Nothing more, nothing less.  It has nothing to do with religion.  It is en entirely secular function.

All that the supremes have done in this case is to uphold the power of the states to define marriage and to remove federal power to limit the effects of the exercise of state power. It is a "states rights" decision that any conservative should applaud.

And any separatist should applaud it as well, because the Supremes are encouraging the balkanization of America into Red and Blue.

Ironically, it will have a profound effect upon the super rich who will now be tempted to "marry" a very young same sex "partner" in order to claim the marital deduction. I would expect a cottage industry of same sex partners for hire under contract to avoid the generation skipping provisions of the IRC while promising support for relatives of the decedent.

Perhaps Red states will loosen up on prohibitions against consanguinous marriage so that a grandparent can marry a grand child so as to claim the marital deduction. This case is all about tax avoidance, and same sex marriage opens up the gates for death tax avoidance that are not open to tranditional male, female families with children.

For those of you incapable of critical thought, the homosexual agenda is not about human rights, it is about:

  1. Taxes
  2. Population Control
  3. Pharmaceuticals
  4. Neuter of brave, strong, revolutionary men
  5. Destruction of Family Unit
  6. Destruction of Morals
  7. Destruction of religious beliefs (Christianity and Islam) 
  8. Imposition of feudal serf form of Communism

I am not religious and am not homophobic; however, the agenda is a threat for the reasons listed.  Why else would the Rothefellers work so hard to win the support of a mere 5% of the population?  If you still don't understand, then you are part of the problem or just plain stupid...

Because people like you waste time worrying about it one way or another. Abortion, Gay Marriage effects a TINY sliver of the population and yet and YET people spend TONS Of time worrying about it. It goes back and forth, up and down over and under and year in and year out people vote along the lines of these two issues.

Meanwhile, year after year civil liberties and financial freedom are stripped away and corproate and federal power ensconced. THAT is why they spend so much money on it. They don't care about gay people or women's birth control/abortion options. But they KNOW people who care about important things will get distracted by these hot button issues. Oh they use race issues and religion too.

Three out of four were hit this week. How awesome. The financial world is melting down, NSA stuff and now we have two decisions people will freak out about.

Absoulutely, the gay agenda is used to distract from enlightening news such as the destruction of the Bill of Rights.  This distraction is recycled year after year, along with Rand Paul's "abortion".  Oh, and let's not forget the threat of "Sharia Law"....  Yes, I am quite aware of the methods used to turn otherwise intelligent people into fools fighting the symptoms, not the problem.  The problem, the seed of evil, is the creation of money.  Those who create money can bribe otherwise good men into dastardly deeds.  So simple, yet so difficult a concept for the "profane".  Acceptance means your whole life has been a lie to some degree.  A psychological burden which necessitates a lengthy re-education.  Indeed, the strain is much and many choose to remain willfully ignorant, head in the sand without care for their children's future.

  Will NOT work for, work with or vote* for any fudge-packer, sh!t-stabber or dyke

  Will NOT associate with or allow such person into my home.  Nor allow my children to be near them.

  Will not help movie or TV show ratings by watching any shows that promote the Homo** lifestyle

  Will boycott and and all homo-owned services.  No homo-owned B & B for us!

 

  Can't wait for the Knesset to pass the same Homo laws.  That'd be so funny.

  Can't wait for Hillary to finally "come out".  We already know where Blarney Frank or McVain's chum from NC stand, lie or kneel.

 

* Will almost automatically support or vote for any politician who ahs an anti-homo position

** The correct term is "Homo", not "gay".  'Gay' means happy or jolly in the classical sense, and I refuse to accept the hijacking of that term by the Perversion community.

IMO, they should have made domestic partnership the defining relationship for all couples, straight or gay.

This would be for state purposes; tax status, hospital visitations, inheritance, etc.

Then, if the couple wanted to sanctify the arrangement as a 'marriage', they could duke it out with the religion of their choice.

Seems it would have helped disentangle the state/religion thing, and saved a lot of gas-baggery.

seriously, "marriage" as it is practised in amrka today involves a hell of a lot of "laws" and profit for lawyers - get out of the business of state-sanctifying your relationships, and save yourselves some time, money & stress.

if you are loaded down with some religious beliefs, then LEARN to ACCEPT they are YOURS, and do not apply to anyone else but you, and your chosen god(s).  stop trying to force others into your mental constructs.

control.

the need to feel control over others as their own lives feel increasingly out of control.

religious beliefs can vary from the personal, extending kindness to those around them, to the hateful, who seem to believe they are "gods" incarnate, smiting all around them - that's more about control and the need to be seen as chosen to carry out the "angry jealous" god's wishes. . .

but really, the need to align with perceived power over lesser beings - it's the stuff of armies, of militaries in every nation, all believing they are chosen, and sent on behalf of their leaders / gods to eradicate anyone who won't obey, who doesn't believe as they do.

one needs to be filled with hatred for others before they can get the benefits of being uni-formed.

ZH has a demographic of older, single, white men, and a sizable proportion of them - not all, but more than a few - are very angry that the world does not center around them as it seemed to in their younger years, when the amrkn meme was strong in all media.  now that "others" get more attention, for whatever reasons, the spotlight has moved on, and the sense of being special, chosen, doesn't get much mileage any more.  unless they're part of the 1%, feeling privileged, and entitled to that privilege by virtue of birth, there is a sense of being cheated out of their "birthright" - culturally they had the edge, and now they're losing it.

religion is a great place to hide out and simmer, sadly.  doesn't matter the flavour of "god" - they're all created in man's image-ination, so aligning with a perceived power over can extend that feeling of being special, even if the result is angry bitterness, hating of most of humanity, the exact opposite of what is preached.

thanks waterhorse, wishing you peace going forward, we'll all need it.

a group of Orthodox Jewish moyles in NY remove the foreskin (after the incision is made) by using their mouth.

 

Whereas a person of ANY other group would have been immediately arrested and jailed, they were not even 'cited'.  They were only 'criticized' by the Jewish community (purely for PR reasons), and it never made the MSM headlines.  Not even the small print deep inside a paper or magazine.

Now that being 'gay' is legal, I guess it's also kosher, and they can now "come out" of the Moyle closet?

~"And what's your business if two men have sex to each other (or two women, or whatever)!?"~

It's my business when anybody wants to get me to say that such behavior is either normal, acceptable or moral. What is "normal" about women with penis-aversion issues? What is "acceptable" about two men who want to play with each others rectums? Where is the morality of allowing people with these "issues" being anywhere near children?

The whole homosexual agenda has been in play for quite some time. It began with them highjacking the word "gay". As far as I can tell, there is nothing "gay" about homosexuals. And if you really want to piss one off, just call them what they are, namely "homosexuals". This tends to make them go ballistic for some reason. Always good for a few chuckles.

Through logical reasoning, incest should be ok for gay couples, because they cannot reproduce anyway; therefor there is no genetic concern. In this sense, gay (including lesbian) couples could gain additional "rights" over heteros.

Not looking to get into a debate, but the inbreeding risk is not why incest is a cultural taboo. It's taboo because it creates bizarre relationships that destroy rhe kin unitswhich give less-complex societies (which was all of them, until not so long ago) their structure and stability.

The preferred marriage partner in most cultures at most times in human history was patrilineal cousins of 1st to 3rd degree of removal, it strikes the right balance between genetic concerns and kin (and social) stability.

I'm OK with gays having same rights, just don't think they should hijack the institution of marriage, just call it something else, garriage or whatever. 

Nature determines one's sexual orientation. I wouldn't be surprised if science eventually determines that homosexual orientation is the outcome of a natural process, whereby in the womb a genetic switch is flipped when a built-in sort of genetic QC-check detects a genetic issue (not a character issue!) in the fetus and flips the switch to homosexual orientation to lessen the chance that the individual will eventually reproduce and thus propagate the genetic issue...

You guys shouldn't be arguing. The disagreement is about the sacred meaning (to some) of the word "marriage." That's what has most anti-gay people in a tizzy. The gay marriage rights proponents should make a tactical decision to change terms but demand the same rights. It would drastically reduce opposition and get the story out of the headlines. Gay couples could still refer to each other as husband/wife/spouse whatever. Who cares.

Another good solution is to limit government recognition of relationships to domestic partnerships or somesuch, and leave it to religious (or other) private institutions to perform marriage (or whatever) ceremonies.

Just as Hizballah kicked Israel's ass in 2006. As to an earlier post of yours referencing Elena Kagan I might repeat something:

"American Jews are committed to cultural tolerance because of their belief -- one firmly rooted in history -- that Jews are safe only in a society acceptant of a wide range of attitudes and behaviors, as well as a diversity of religious and ethnic groups. It is this belief, for example, not approval of homosexuality, that leads an overwhelming majority of American Jews to endorse 'gay rights' and to take a liberal stance on most other so-called 'social' issues."

There is increasing evidence that, outside of psychological traumas in early adulthood, it has more to do with exposure to testosterone and estrogen hormones during pregnancy and how it affects brain regions related to sexual attraction.

Two of the known physical signs of that hormone level effect are the swirl direction of hair on the head and finger lengths. I have the finger lengths typical of women, as did Nikola Tesla. He was a famous celibate, I am celibate, as was Newton and maybe Da Vinci (would love to know their finger lengths).  I find men sexually disgusting and am grossed out by gay sex.

You are confusing a threesome or love triangle with Ménage à trois (the phrase literally translates as "household of three").

It is illegal to have more than one wife or husband.

It's against law in the US maybe, not in general

Why? Because it's another stupid rule imposed by the state. Strike it down !

Can you get a marriage certificate and legal protections (as gays want to have) if you want to have more than one wife or husband?

What we should be asking is why do we need permission from the state to marry?

Why marry?
