Gee, Republicans never get any breaks in the supposed more liberal courts. Maybe if they take everything to their sure thing, the activist Federal Supreme Court.
Same Sex Marriage Wins Again: It wasn't even close. The weird and fabricated ramifications of same sex marriage were called out for what they were:
jsonline: The nation took another big stride Thursday toward a historic decision on gay marriage, as a federal appeals court in Chicago unanimously struck down bans on same-sex unions in Wisconsin and Indiana.
"More than unsupported conjecture that same-sex marriage will harm heterosexual marriage or children or any other valid and important interest of a state is necessary to justify discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.As we have been at pains to explain, the grounds advanced by Indiana and Wisconsin for their discriminatory policies are not only conjectural; they are totally implausible," Richard Posner wrote in the 40-page decision.
The decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upholds lower federal court decisions in Madison and Indianapolis and helps set up an eventual ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on the question of whether gay marriage bans violate the federal constitution. In the meantime, the ruling does not immediately take effect.
Take it to the Activist Supreme Court: Republicans are pretty damn obvious about their reliance on the Conservative knuckle draggers on the Supreme Court. Big surprise:
Dana Brueck, a spokeswoman for Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, a Republican, said "The attorney general has always believed that this case will ultimately be decided by the United States Supreme Court.”No, really?
