High court justice denies last-ditch motion by gay marriage opponents to halt Calif. weddings

There are 26 comments on the www.sasklifestyles.com story from Jul 2, 2013, titled High court justice denies last-ditch motion by gay marriage opponents to halt Calif. weddings. In it, www.sasklifestyles.com reports that:

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy on Sunday denied a last-ditch request from the sponsors of California's now-overturned gay marriage ban to halt the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses in America's most populous state.

Kennedy turned away the appeal with no additional comment just as San Francisco's gay pride parade was getting under way in San Francisco, where dozens of couples have gotten married since Friday and where the clerk's office was expected to issue more licenses on Sunday. Same-sex marriage opponents asked Kennedy to step in on Saturday, a day after the federal appeals court in San Francisco allowed same-sex marriages to go forward.

The opponents said the appeals court had acted about three weeks too soon when it cleared the way Friday for same-sex marriages to be legal in California for the first time in 4 1/2 years by lifting a hold it had imposed on such unions while a lawsuit challenging Proposition 8, the gay wedding ban, made its way to and through the high court.

Under Supreme Court rules, the losing side in a legal dispute has 25 days to request a rehearing. While such requests are almost never granted, the high court said that it wouldn't finalize its judgment in the case at least until after that waiting period elapsed.

Proposition 8 supporters could continue their efforts to halt gay marriage by filing their request with another Supreme Court justice. They also have another 21 days to seek a rehearing before the high court.

So the anti-gays will finally have to admit defeat in California, but as we've heard from NOM they're not giving up the fight completely. They'll concentrate all their efforts on getting a ban passed in Indiana while likely offering just token resistance in Oregon.

It's funny how they're working on bans that have just recently been voted unconstitutional in other locations.

Marriage is a Religious Union between a man and a woman.
A union between same sexes is a Sodomy-based relationship

Civil weddings have nothing to do with God, nor any religion. In fact, the law PROHIBITS it. Remember that "separation of church and state" thingy ???

Civil marriage has nothing to do with your religious hocus-pocus.

Btw, the overwhelming majority of heteros engage in sodomy as well.

And I heard that they are going to officially change the spelling of "sodomy" to "FUN!"

So what are you babbling about here ??? Civil marriage, which is what this case is about, is separate form religious marriage.

Lie. Marriages are not all "religious," and marriages between gay people are every bit as religious, are based in the same love and committment as any other marriage, not just "sodomy". You aren't just a bigot, you're incredibly ignorant.

Actually, no it's not.

Marriage cannot be done without the government.
Marriage CAN be done without religion.

I'd like to see you try and prevent atheists from getting married.

Also, clearly men can marry men and women can marry women.
It's just pure ignorance to state otherwise.

Nazis like you are nasty things, gay people are not. Bigots are offensive and below all moral standards. Your hate isn't morality, isn't "standards," it's just ignorance and cowardice. If you're too small-minded to deal with the reality that some people are gay, I'd suggest you'd find living in a nice cave somewhere more to your liking. Enjoy!

And God will say "well done." God doesn't support hate.

If you're too much a coward to deal with the existence of people different from yourself, that's your weakness. But stop blasphemously insulting and slurring God by pretending that the Lord shares your hate. God does NOT support homophobia, and discrimination is NOT Christian.

And by the way, since you obviously know nothing about God...God FORGIVES sin, God does not "judge." Supporting equality isn't a sin, hate is, so you should be VERY grateful.
