Court blocks same-sex marriage in California

A federal appeals court in San Francisco has blocked same-sex marriage in California, until it hears broader questions over the constitutionality of such marriages. The brief order from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals set aside a federal judge's decision August 4 permitting same-sex marriages to resume.

    Ah, so a little sanity still exists in California. Thumbs up to the law-makers. Grave mental illness should not be paraded as normal.

    Be careful what you post. CNN has been banning people who post comments against gay marriage. 🙂

    here is a shocker the original view on marriage is between a man and a woman GOD TOLD ADAM AND EVE not adam and steve TO GO AND MULTIPLY THE EARTH and for those who are unfamiliar with this i suggest that read the book of GENESES WHERE IT SAYS GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE AND THEY thatmeans both of them male and female i dont hear or read of any two guys or two girls in that scripture it also says and THEY MEANING A MAN AND A WOMAN SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH

    Being gay makes no biological sense. It is the single most retarded idea mankind has ever come up with. Gay people are the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to common sense. If everyone chose this way of life the human race would sees to exist.

    Apparently the Secular Religion wants marriage embedded in the law of the land. And that is a violation of the separation of church and state. They need to resolve the attacks on laws that promote civility and social order. Revise the 'common law' statutes to include all relationships so that they have to answer to all the unfair restrictions and infringements. Alimony, Tax Liabilities, Child Support, and Property Rights. If it’s for healthcare benefits then resolve that with the new health care laws. But don’t dismantle the traditional family. Apparently the activists want to make all legal burdens available to all adult relationships. But somehow I don't think that is the core issue here. This is an activist movement to destroy the traditional definition of family and the sovereignty of homes.
