Nope, if the district court ruling only applied to that district in California, then there wouldn't be thousands of same-sex couples all across the state.
From the decision:

"Because petitioners have not satisfied their burden todemonstrate standing to appeal the judgment of the District Court, the Ninth Circuit was without jurisdiction to consider the appeal. The judgment of the Ninth Circuit is vacated, and the case is remanded with instructions to dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
It is so ordered"

Good luck getting a federal constitutional amendment through Congress. You need 2/3rd votes in both the House and the Senate, then votes in 3/4th of the state legislatures. Feel free to was your time & money.
Thanks, I hope we'll have better luck than the ERA, there is no gender equality right in the US constitution.

Apparently you don't know either.

Anyone who is truly 'saved' would be able to explain what they've been saved from.

(and if it just being saved from hell, explain how one can be eternally punished, if only the good people get 'eternal' life)

The words of the Prophet Isaiah

written some 700 years prior to the

SUFFERINGS DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

SAYS..

(NOTE WHAT I AM POSTING... IS THE PURPOSE OF CALVARY'S SUFFERING..

THE TRUE FOUNDATION OF CHRISTIAN FAITH..

Isa 53:5 But

1.he was wounded for our transgressions,

2.he was bruised for our iniquities:

3.the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and

4.with his stripes we are healed.

VERSE 6..-->SAID IT ALL<--

Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way;

and

THE LORD HATH LAID UPON HIM/JESUS THE INIQUITY/SINS OF US ALL.

The instructions ..of how to acknowledge...(accept the fact)..that

Jesus took upon himself you sins at Calvary's cross is...

___

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and

shalt believe in thine heart

that God hath raised him/JESUS from the dead,

thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and

with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

That's a lot of hubba, bubba; but it doesn't explain what a person is being saved from.

(and if 'born again' christians are any indication, getting 'reborn' is just an excuse to be judgmental of others)

I GAVE YOU THE SCRIPTURE..OF THE POSITIVE SIDE OF SALVATION

THAT SAYS ...YOU ARE SAVED FROM YOU PAST SINS...WHEN YOU CONFESS THEM AND ASK GOD'S FORGIVENESS..

1Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

but

Unless the Holy Spirit of God convicts you of your sins...what I write will not have any effect.

I am not here to argue

only to confront with the word of God

I am not here to condemn you ...

John's gospel says

Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

NOTE
Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

**********

Mankind is the super-natural creature for which NASA has been looking. When they walk/live by godly principles, they are 'godly'.

When they forsake those principles and live like the animal kingdom, they are ungodly.

Even animals know better. My grandmother had a cow that had been abused by some 'abnormal' men, and she would not let ANY man cross the fence into her pasture. She went after any who tried with her horns. When grandmother was away, my mother did the milking.

If our nation continues to forsake the principles of godliness, they need to release all those who are in prison for doing the same things they are doing. They won't, because they are hypocritical and trying to see themselves as 'righteous/fair'. We call it 'self-righteousness'.

Jesus said that in the latter days, it would be like the time of Noah. "Every thought of man's heart was evil continually." Noah was a righteous man, who was mocked and shamed for his 'religion' daily.

These forums sound just like the scoffers of Noah's day. You wouldn't lump leftists, queers and politicians in with Christians, if you knew what you were talking about.

That one is easy, Eleanor. A mortal body, raised from the dead, is changed to an immortal one that cannot be destroyed. All those who have submitted to God's forgiveness (made available through Jesus' sacrifice) have forgiveness of their sin, and their name is written in His book of life. They will be resurrected when Jesus returns for them. They will be prepared for a life that is eternal.

Those who reject God will also be resurrected (last resurrection Revelation 20:11-15) and face the Great White Throne judgment. Their deeds (not forgiven) will be judged there. Those whose names are not in His book will be cast into the lake of fire.

If you find hell hard to believe, just watch one of National Geo-graphic's documentary's on Hawaii. You will see rivers of fire that run out of the earth. Where do you suppose they come from?

How can one last forever in hell? Your soul is never dying, never aging. If you will notice, your body will age with time...but you will ALWAYS be the same person inside. My body is older now...but "I" am just the same inside as I was as a youth...I just move more slowly. I 'feel' just as intensely (maybe more) as I ever did, but I can't run as I did when I was a child, and my physical body was new.

Seek the truth...

There IS NO SUCH word. And you are listening to folks who are so full of hate and ignorance that they can call the Bible 'phoney'.

I dare you to read the New Testament through (honestly), and see if you still talk the same.
