Republicans Retreat From Same-Sex Marriage Fight!

Republicans Republican't always have it their way! Especially if the Supreme Court has already ruled otherwise!

House leaders from the Republican party announced in a court filing today that it will not continue to try defending statutes that are similar to those in the recently struck down DOMA, which ban federal recognition of same-sex marriages.

Here's an excerpt of what they wrote:

"The Supreme Court recently resolved the issue of DOMA Section 3’s constitutionality. See United States v. Windsor, 570 U.S. __ (2013), 2013 WL 3196928 (U.S. June 26, 2013). The Windsor decision necessarily resolves the issue of DOMA Section 3’s constitutionality in this case. While the question of whether 38 U.S.C. § 101(3), (31) is constitutional remains open, the House has determined, in light of the Supreme Court’s opinion in Windsor, that it no longer will defend that statute. Accordingly, the House now seeks leave to withdraw as a party defendant."

What a relief, especially since some conservatives made it their mission (impossible) to reinstate the now-unconstitutional DOMA as soon as it was struck down by the highest court in the land, the Miami Heat's court the Supreme Court!

AHmazing news! Just goes to show that you should never mess with the dudes and dudettes in the jedi outfits judge's robes!

    They'll just wait until they have a Republican president in the White House and a majority in the Senate as well; they have all the time in the world, you dumbass homo. Don't forget that the ruling on you nasty deviants can also be reheard in SCOTUS; it's what abortion opponents hang THEIR hats on. You really are a dumb shit. NOTHING like that is permanent, ape face.

    Why aren't you covering IRS hearings? Benghazi? NSA spying? If you are going to cover politics, don't cherry pick your issues…..

    If you are so concerned with politics, how about covering really important things like the Benghazi coverup and the Dept. of Homeland Security buying up most of the ammunition in this country– what the DHS needs ammunition for, and giant trucks, too? To load dissenting Americans into, transport them into "re-education camps" (the FEMA camps that already exist), and annihilate us. This administration is very scary.

    IMAGINE WHAT IF THE EVERYONE WAS GAY? THEN HUMAN LIFE WOULD END. GOD MADE ADAM A COMPANION, AND IT WAS A WOMAN. NOT A MAN! YOU CANNOT BE A CHRISTIAN AND LET AMERICA SLAP GOD IN THE FACE. YOU HAVE TO DIE TO YOUR FLESH. YEAH IVE HAD PERVERTED THOUGHTS…BUT I RECOGNIZED GOD SAID THOSE FEELINGS WAS. WRONG. I HAVE PEOPLE IN MY FAMILY TURN AWAY FROM HOMOSEXUAL LIFESTYLES, AND GOD BLESSED THEM. ALL SAY THEY HAVE PEASE. AMERICA IS GOING DOWN HILL AND PEOPLE SAY THIS ISN'T A COUNTRY BASSED ON GOD. THAT'S FUN BECAUSE NOBODY FOUGHT GOD'S LAWS LIKE THEY DO NOW. SIN NORMAL AND GOD IS BAD

    THE BIBLE SAID IN THE END TIMES WHAT IS GOOD WILL BE BAD AND WHAT IS BAD WILL BE GOOD

    Im typing on a phone, sorry when I mess up. But my point is clear. I've lived without the peace of God and ive lived with it. God's way is like water to the soul. And I have sinned with pride on this blog…and im sorry for that. But our bodies and this planet must have had a maker because it's too complex and highly organized. So if there's a God and Jesus was the perfect match to prophecy in the old Jewish testament. ..Christ's death accrued exactly the way prophesy told. Jesus said " man is not to lay with man" sodomy was considered to be such a horrible act against God, as well as animal's have sex with humans. We have differentbody parts for a reason. Im not comparing it to rape. But I saying it's not the way God intended. If this law stays then why marry? Because God ordained marriage not man. Gays should live without fear. But my God said a man is to take wife so no need for gays to marry.
