With Gay Marriage Decision, America’s the New Europe; United States of RuPaulistan

By Debbie Schlussel

Meet the new Europe. It’s called the United States.

Yesterday, I was out of town, taking a deposition of an ICE official for one of several Department of Homeland Security agents I represent. And this morning, I was in court representing a wrongly accused person in a criminal matter. During both of those events, I thought to myself that, ultimately, the system works. And then, the Supreme Court splashed the cold water in my face yet again with its decision promoting–and, frankly, almost preferring–gays and gay marriage over everyone else. And we’re well on our way to the system completely breaking down, as is basically the case in Europe.

America is the new Europe. My late dad used to say that the Conservative sect of Judaism was like the Reform sect of Judaism, only ten years behind. Both are competing to become watered-down Judaism, so watered down that it is no longer Jewish at all. And so it goes with America. We are Europe, only ten years behind. Everything they do, we ultimately do, with equally disastrous consequences. Gay marriage is just the last straw. (Or is it? Why not legalized bestiality marriage or pedophile marriage, since they, too, are “born that way” and are “discriminated against?”)

They allow unlimited immigration of Muslims and others and lose their Western identity (and soon their countries). Now, we essentially do and lose ours. They allow women in combat and in all facets of their militaries. Now, we do. They allow open gays in the military. Now, we have that. They have Euro-trash socialist leaders. We have neo-Euro-trashian Barack Obama. They have “conservative” parties that are essentially liberal Democrats with capitalist views on business. That’s where the Republican Party is headed and is, in many ways, already there. They have single motherhood galore. Now, America has more than 42% of births born to single chicks. They have a growing population of the non-religious and newly atheist. We have that in spades now, too. And now we have gay marriage . . . just like in Europe.



So, what’s left? Well, nothing. We’re really no different. Not at all. We are just ten years behind. We are like the two watered down, lesser versions of Judaism competing themselves out of business until there is nothing left. America is competing with the rest of the Western world, particularly Europe, to put ourselves and Western civilization out of business.

Today’s gay marriage ruling was the final nail in the coffin, and not really a surprise when you look at the sea change in social programs and values promoted by the government since Obama took office. Gay marriage, open gays in the military, women in combat–all of this came about under Obama. The immigration stupidity and Islamo-pandering was already happening big-time under Bush, despite 9/11. But the rest was an Obama thing. And it will kill America forever.

But lest you think that gay militance is over, think again. It’s as much over as racism in our “post-racial” Obama world. Just as Black-on-White racism is as strong as ever, and demographics reveal a concurrent future trend toward the long-term elimination of the White race in America, you will see more and more in your face BS and demands from gays. You will also see–as today’s majority Supreme Court decision reflected–more and more hatred toward the fewer and fewer traditional marriages and nuclear families still left. It’s a hatred and intolerance in many ways similar to Islamic hatred and intolerance for the West. And we’ll see more and more of it. Today’s Supreme Court ruling was just a taste of the new dominant rainbow flavor that tolerates no others.

What’s next? Decisions that gay sex on a public table is no longer obscene or lewd behavior? Don’t bet against it. They don’t just want the same rights as you and I (which they already had and have). They want more than us. And they won’t stop ’til they get it. And, by that, I don’t mean better discounts at the interior decorating store or better deals on arugula and cashmere cup cozies. They want gay domination. They want heterosexuality to be an unnecessary thing, and with science, technology, egg donors, sperm banks, and today’s Supreme’s idiotic decision, they’re well on their way.

Congrats, America, you’ve become the United States of RuPaulistan. Are you a patriotic RuPaulistinian?

The only holdouts against gay marriage is Israel and the Islamic countries.

The way the future is headed, traditional marriage, strong nuclear families and conservatism are things of the past both in Europe and America.

We’re competing with Europe to see who can become extinct first. I was not really surprised by today’s ruling. The popular culture and public opinion shifted and so did the Supreme Court.

I’m the last of my kind – traditional, religious and conservative. The America that we knew is gone and isn’t coming back… regardless of whether the Lavender Jihad or the Green Jihad ultimately prevails here.

NormanF on June 26, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    You are so over the top Norman. How will this make us become extinct?

    Laura on June 26, 2013 at 7:06 pm

It is ironic that one of the few remaining arguments for voting for the Republicans is that they would appoint more conservative Justices. Like the Health Care and Gay Marriage decisions, and striking down of local immigration laws. At one time it would have been hard to imagine our highest court striking down laws that protect us against those in the country illegally.

In a broader sense, Supreme Court nominees are similar to Republican political candidates in the sense that what you see is not always what you get. Just as so many Republican political candidates campaign as conservative and then become more liberal once in office, this is happening with the Supremes. Not all of them, just like not all political candidates, but enough of them to ensure the liberalism of the court. A few sops like the Voting Rights decision, and a few judges like Clarence Thomas, but the overall impact and trends are clearly towards liberalism.

And it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if Republican judges who want to get on the Supreme Court craft ‘conservative’ records waiting for the day they get elevated either to the Supreme Court or the Appeals Courts and can become more liberal. They are not that different from office-holding politicians.

Little Al on June 26, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    LA,

    The Supreme Court follows the culture and judges are political animals first and foremost. They want to be “on the right side of history.” And they can see what is popular. Standing up for principle isn’t in their brief.

    I knew this day was coming and nothing I have see so far has disappointed me.

    NormanF on June 26, 2013 at 3:10 pm

      Norman, I have been reading your comments a long time, and have a lot of respect for you. I agree with the overwhelming majority of your comments. But really, don’t you think I know that the Justices are political animals, after all the time you have been reading my comments?

      Little Al on June 26, 2013 at 11:45 pm

As for being a RuPaulistinian – I’ll stay home before I vote for him – Rand Paul and his rainbow-flavored libertarianism. None of which suits my taste!~ And I have a bad taste in my mouth at the dumbed-down conservalumpenpoletariat cheering on the treason of Edward Snowden.

The GOP is no longer a conservative party and given which way the political winds are blowing, European social democracy will become a fact of life in this country well before the decade is over. People decided this is what they wanted after the last election and they’re going to get it in spades. We’ll get to hell but only faster than before. Today’s Supreme Court decision is an indication – not an encouraging one – of what the America of the future will look like.

NormanF on June 26, 2013 at 3:07 pm

As I prepare to leave Puerto Rico tomorrow morning for another work and chiropractic related stay in the states, I do so with a sigh of extreme heaviness. I have been building toward this feeling for weeks, as I hate going back to the states, especially NYC.

I have rarely seen such an accurate commentary, word for word, on the current state of American society, or any society, as this column of yours, Debbie. Your analogy to the two forms of Judaism was also very much noted and appreciated in the way you formed and built your commentary. This is truly the end. I do not put anything past these factions, and that includes actually some day physically persecuting and putting people to death for their beliefs.

People will some day actually be marched off to die for the things you talked about, Debbie, all of it. I have been cornered and tried to point out many times that the Bible points out God is angry with the human race, and it is our propensity for sin that is bringing us all these problems we have. This is usually by heterosexuals on the left, and you know what their mantra is, man-made climate change. They always counter by asking if environmental destruction is sinful. They are like horses with blinders.

There can be no greater destruction to any “environment” than the one being done to our cultural realm by the rampant sinfulness and idiocy that Debbie addressed in this wonderful column. The Lord is going to step in some day and let us all know that, but in the meantime, it is all upside down, and some day those who were once considered “normal” in their life styles and beliefs will be killed for the same.

Simply put, Debbie’s wisdom is straight from the mouth of Almighty God, and that is a fact. It’s too bad that facts don’t mean anything to the people hugging each other and jumping up and down in the streets across America today.

God love you and protect you Debbie, and bring you and all your loved ones in to His Holy Kingdom at an appointed time.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 26, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    Hello Alfredo, You speak of the Lord stepping in. Yes. Isn’t that what we pray for when we say the Lord’s Prayer – for God to intervene? We ask for God’s Kingdom to come, and for His will to be done upon the earth.

    And Jesus is the one annointed by Jehovah as the King of that Kingdom.

    The Hebrew Scriptures tell us exactly what it will do:
    (Daniel 2:44) “And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite.”

    The Kingdom of God, which, Daniel shows us, is a heavenly government, ruling from the heavens, will crush and put an end to all human governments.

    It will restore Paradise earthwide. For example, it will restore the original peace between man and animal, and between the animals themselves. Nature will no longer be “red in tooth and claw with ravine”.

    “The wolf will actually reside for a while with the male lamb, and with the kid the leopard itself will lie down, and the calf and the maned young lion and the well-fed animal all together; and a mere little boy will be leader over them. And the cow and the bear themselves will feed; together their young ones will lie down. And even the lion will eat straw just like the bull. And the sucking child will certainly play upon the hole of the cobra; and upon the light aperture of a poisonous snake will a weaned child actually put his own hand. They will not do any harm or cause any ruin in all my holy mountain; because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah as the waters are covering the very sea.”

    What human government could even begin to achieve that?

    sue on June 27, 2013 at 4:07 am

      Oh no! More proselytizing from Sue the Pom. Skippable.

      skzion on June 27, 2013 at 6:33 pm

America. A great idea while it lasted. Now put her in the trash can by the curb.

I don’t believe in discrimination against gays; however, gay unions for legal purposes should not be called marriages.

As to Judaism, whether or not someone supports gay marriage, reform synagogues, and now conservative in name only Judaism, are holding gay weddings, something forbidden by the Torah.

I guess the Torah is now like the U.S. Constitution, a mighty set of laws and rights that no one pays attention to anymore.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 26, 2013 at 3:09 pm

The more we try to ignore the bastards, the harder they try to get attention.

RT on June 26, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    The gay marriage decision was one shoe dropping. The future imposition of Sharia upon this country will be the other shoe dropping.

    And that’s only a matter of time now.

    NormanF on June 26, 2013 at 3:16 pm

      LOL – Norman – you forget one thing – if Sharia comes the gays go – so at the very least we only have to deal with one, and at least the muslims are religious (although extreme)

      George A. on June 26, 2013 at 9:18 pm

        George A(hole) as usual you show your ignorance here.

        What must it be like to read the columns but for none of the compelling facts to stick?

        Islam is NOT a religion. It is a supremely fake one. DS has proved on every level that they are religious hypocrites. Backwards and forwards.

        Like the Libtards, it is a power construct to control, absolutely.

        Don’t know why you’re qualifying it as a religion…as if that is some sort of mitigating, positive factor for Islam. It isn’t. Regular readers should know that.

        What was your point, exactly???

        Skunky on June 26, 2013 at 9:31 pm

          Skunky, little Georgie has his priorities. So long as the Mooooslims kill the gaaaayz, he’s ok with the Mooooslims. Except that if the gays were killed, the Jews would already be dead, and the Christians would be on the road to extermination. He can’t think that far ahead, though.

          skzion on June 27, 2013 at 6:32 pm

I’m not anti-gay; I’m anti-gay marriage and one has nothing to do with the other.

Jon – what the Lavender Jihad like its Islamic counterpart wants is the complete destruction of Western society. The only difference is they’re aren’t having to serve up a slew of human corpses to get there.

Civilizations ultimately die! Rome did – the only question is how long it will ours to vanish from the earth. We’re lucky to have lasted as long as we have.

NormanF on June 26, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    ” . . . what the Lavender Jihad like its Islamic counterpart wants is the complete destruction of Western society. The only difference is they’re aren’t having to serve up a slew of human corpses to get there.” – NormanF

    That is exactly what it is, a supremacist movement. Not only that, there are other similarities. One main one is that both pressure groups scream “bigotry” and “-ophobia” to bully and silence anyone who dares challenge or oppose their destructive agendas. Already we’re seeing a push to criminalize any criticism of homosexuality, using as the excuse a recent spike in anti-gay attacks in New York City (which suspiciously has dovetailed with the aforementioned Muslim immigration to this country spurred by Bush and continued, under a lesser extent, by Obama). Ironically, the forced homosexualization of the West by the leftist elites plays straight into the hands of Islam in terms of their quest to take over the world.

    “The 60′s radicals have been running our educational system and all branches of the media for over a generation. By the time they turn 18, everyone is fully indoctrinated with leftist values.” – mrivera

    Another reason why granting the vote to 18-year-olds in 1971 via the 26th Amendment has proven extremely disastrous for this country and why it should be scrapped (as, for that matter, should be the so-called “Motor-Voter” law).

    ConcernedPatriot on June 26, 2013 at 3:35 pm

I laugh at both sides on this issue. I can’t believe all the time, energy and money that everyone is wasting on this.

Despite what the Supreme Court (or any other court) ruled, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS GAY MARRIAGE.

If its not a man and a woman, its not a marriage. No court, legislature or county clerk can change that, PERIOD!!!

I_AM_ME on June 26, 2013 at 3:15 pm

What do you expect? The 60′s radicals have been running our educational system and all branches of the media for over a generation. By the time they turn 18, everyone is fully indoctrinated with leftist values. Even “conservative” Fox news has moved so far left I don’t watch it anymore. Talk radio is dying because most radio hosts have turned their shows into infomercials for their books and listeners are tuning out. If I didn’t have so much family here, I’d seriously consider moving to Israel.

mrivera on June 26, 2013 at 3:16 pm

What Debbie said about Conservative Judaism is true. I left my synagog after the rabbi kept referring to God as “She”.

mrivera on June 26, 2013 at 3:18 pm

Conservatism is a dead philosophy. Its lost the culture war. All that remains to be negotiated are its terms of surrender.

NormanF on June 26, 2013 at 3:18 pm

If America is like Europe then she will be a Muslim country so there will never be gay domination.
Gay marriage is the precursor to polygamy not bestiality.

migraine boy on June 26, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    So you would rather have muslim domination than gay marriage? I wonder about the priorities of so many “conservatives” who fear gays more than jihadists. I don’t support gay marriage, however I don’t think its the end of the world or even of western civilization either.

    Laura on June 26, 2013 at 7:11 pm

Debbie, you left out polygamy. Inside info has it that U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups has been sitting on his federal court ruling on whether to decriminalize polygamy in Utah, pending the SCOTUS’ ruling on Prop 8. We are suckers, and the real punch is right around the corner.

KDI: I’ve written about that case on this site in the past and was gonna mention it here but didn’t b/c I had two examples of similarly ridiculous marriages and felt that sufficed. But you are absolutely right. DS

K Dee Ignatin on June 26, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Like Debbie sez – why stop there? What’s wrong with polygamy, bestiality, pedophilia, or necromancy? After all, there are people who want to marry multiple sexual partners, animals, underage children and the dead. Who are we to say it isn’t “natural?” Whatever sexual union people fancy, society should condone.

And it definitely won’t end with gay marriage.

NormanF on June 26, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    Why repeat what Debbie said Norman? Muslims will not allow any of the things you mentioned so the question is academic.

    migraine boy on June 26, 2013 at 3:58 pm

Mankind is at a crucial point in history and it is my personal, as well as religious believe, that were are truly in the end times. I wonder if the Islamists, and other fringe groups that are tearing the very fabric of American Society, have figured out that you can pretty much destroy our country not with bombs but from within.

I pretty much could read the writing on the wall with the appointment of the Wise Latina and the other one that looks like maggots are crawling between her/his/its legs.

The perverseness will just get worse as time goes on; and I also believe that to make room for other fine outstanding illegal aliens (immigrants), the politicians will somehow start getting rid of actual American Citizens. They will probably call it something like Reverse Migration of European People (RMEP) I should not say this because I do not want to give them any ideas.

Groups like La Raza already go around aying the Anglo-Saxons are the true illegal aliens and Mexicans are legitimate citizens and all that are not Hispanic must get out of the country.

AR on June 26, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    “It is clear to see that she, like most women, love me. I am tall and am considered good looking among my peers. I am not boastful, but I must explain for the sake of clarity that I am relatively well-equipped with ten inches of solid man meat.”

    -AR

    No comments are necessary.

    skzion on June 26, 2013 at 7:23 pm

      Well, geez, Schizo, aren’t you and your buddy Funky just a bundle of knowledge. What do you care if there are people that engage in the alternative lifestyle? You just spew out nothing more than rhetoric and innuendo at the expense of the individuals that are not hetero or others that are not here to defend themselves. Do you walk into a bodega or down on 81st Street and tell one of the Latinos or Arabs how you feel? I thought so. You talk a big game in an anonymous forum, but I would venture to say you aint got any nuts to back up what you say.

      AR on June 26, 2013 at 8:42 pm

        “you aint got any nuts to back up what you say.”

        -AR

        I fully expected AR to detail the size of his nuts, since he has already informed us of the size of his man meat. I have NO idea what he’s talking about in his comment, however.

        skzion on June 26, 2013 at 8:51 pm

          Skzion, it really is not worth reading one letter of Anal Retention (AR). Not one.

          I did think I had a posse of haters but now I know it’s only one Rumpelstiltskin-like nutter. A cha-cha-chimpanzee. Shucks!

          One day his love of Bob Dole will come out & you’ll know I was spot-on. ;)

          Skunky on June 26, 2013 at 9:07 pm

          I am impressed. Schizo is so intelligent he just cuts and pastes a sentence from one of my posts and then fantasizes about me by posting something about my manhood. You keep doing that. Sorry pal. Even though the supreme court made an historic ruling, weather you agree or disagree, I do not swing that way, so try to get your game on with someone else that is of your persuasion. You and that other thing can continue your hate speech with someone else. You two are so insignificant, I’m going to quit wasting my valuable time responding to your utter nonsense.

          AR on June 26, 2013 at 11:27 pm

      Skzion, if the projectioner-in-chief indeed said that (and you’re not using joking prose mocking him) one can also use my fav. quote I usually save for Sue The Pom…

      “The louder he spoke of his honour, the faster we counted our spoons”. (Or subtracted his humble-brag of supposed wicked endowment!)

      Skunky on June 26, 2013 at 9:14 pm

        Yoo hoo, Funky, come out, come out wherever you are.

        AR on June 26, 2013 at 11:18 pm

        Skunky, I did not make up that quote about AR’s man meat. The quote was from the previous thread. The “she” in the quote referred to you. I know you hadn’t realized this because you are so diligent in ignoring him.

        A couple days back, AR directed me to a female hooker. RIF. Now he seems to have had a new revelation and thinks that I’ve joined you in fantasizing about him and his “manhood” (where does he get these anachronistic or just plain pornographic terms?).

        I don’t believe he’s the chimp, though. Unless, of course, the chimp has multiple personality disorder.

        skzion on June 26, 2013 at 11:49 pm

          Ugh, Skzion. He’s such a douche-chill. He can’t contribute to the topics in an intellectual and heavy-hitting way and his poor attempt at invective is also douche-chilly. A Howard Stern fan should be more capable. What a loser!

          I reckon he stole that little fantasy scene from an old, 80s Ron Jeremy film. He’s prolly even more hairy than the “hedgehog”. Girls don’t like hairy, old man-virgins!

          Anyway, I love that he reads every word of our posts. His are too boring to read. I’d rather read ones like Ralph’s long one near the bottom…I think he is on to something and his is quite ponderable.

          Skunky on June 27, 2013 at 12:02 am

No one has discussed the great impact on taxpayers. Besides affirmative action for gays, which is already going on in government, there is the issue of survivor’s benefits for social security. There are countless other welfare issues, etc. that will be affected by gay marriages.

What about fraud? There is now a greater possibility for fraud, as shown in the Adam Sandler movie.

Whether one is for or against gay unions or marriages, the financial impact on America will be huge!!

Jonathan E. Grant on June 26, 2013 at 4:01 pm

This is just another sign of the decay and rot of our civilization. Look at all the other “decadent” civilizations and what happened to them ??

Sodom & Gomorrah—brimstone did them in.
Babylon—Gone—Persia conquered them.
Greece—-gone–conquered by the Romans.
Rome—gone–conquered by the barbarian tribes that they had trained because Romans didn’t want to fight in the Legions anymore. This led to a Dark Age that lasted 1000 years.
Western Civilization—–circling the drain.

The greatest problem with our society is that we have totally subverted our gender and family roles that evolved over thousands of years. We do this at our peril and in my opinion the vast majority of our problems descend from this very issue—the breakup of the family.

Gay marriage is just a symptom of this greater problem.

jimmyPx on June 26, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    As a student of History it amazes me that the average man doesn’t understand how fragile civilization is.
    Marriage is, sorry was, one of the pillars that held our civilization up. With that pillar gone we will self destruct.
    In the early Roman Empire families were strong and marriage was sacred. By the end of the Roman Empire it was fashionable to get married and divorced several times a year.

    As Jimmy pointed out all of the great civilizations of the past have collapsed and are now footnotes in history books.
    Hundreds of years from now when history students read about the nation that used to be called the United States of America, they will laugh out loud at how stupid we were.
    And I doubt seriously they will be reading those books in English.

    Steve G. on June 26, 2013 at 7:41 pm

(Gender/Race) Identity politics is the single most destructive force in the history of mankind and it killed the United States of America by today’s SCOTUS ruling on DOMA.

Rob on June 26, 2013 at 4:08 pm

i’d posted earlier on another site how this decision opens the door for pedophile, bestial and any other unholy form of marriage imaginable… of course, i was lambasted with replies of bigotry and that no one would tolerate pedophile’s marrying children. yeah, right. start the countdown now for us to go from “no one will tolerate it” to the supreme court ruling on it in less than… 10 years, would be my guess.

so, i’m fully expecting to be able to marry my vintage 1968 triumph bonneville motorcycle… we’ve both suffered long enough and we demand our equal rights.

wedding pics will be posted soon!

kirche on June 26, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    Yes of course….because you know tolerating two adults of the same sex consensually being together is the same thing is allowing legal standing for a minor to be sexually abused by an adult….

    btw most cases of children forced in relationships in this country largely occur in sects full of heterosexual people.

    DMITRIY on June 26, 2013 at 5:22 pm

Debbie and others here on this blog, to me and many folks in this country, gay-marriage is NOT an important issue for any of the policies in this country, the important issues are the economy, national security, the threat of islamofascism to our shores and borders, a good percentage of Obama’s policies, etc. Issues such as this, gay marriage is a “want”, rather than a “need”, it’s a want for a certain political base in this country (the LGBT wing of the left wing establishment).

Also, when I get married sometime in the future, I don’t think gay-marriage (I’m in New York, and it’s legal here) will affect me personally, as a matter of fact, most same-sex weddings are being performed in small courts according to my knowledge rather than a house of worship.

Yes we do have a growing trend of irreligious, atheism, secularism, etc., because the world is changing infront of our eyes and noses, many folks (including myself) have rejected religious dogma and think that religion is no longer worth it. Debbie, I know and you know that religion is “man-made”, NOT god made, so when man invented the five religions, they corrupted the doctrinal teachings of putting in violent, misogynistic, homophobic, bigoted, texted in their religious books.

And it’s pretty debateable whether or not folks are born gay, lesbian, or bi-sexual, some folks have claimed that they were born with a gay, lesbian or bi-sexual gene in them, and there are some who claims that there’s no such thing as a LGBT gene in mankind, this link is very educational and worth reading and learning:

Sean R. on June 26, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    Sean, I think you have your eye mistakenly on religion when it would be more wise to have it on COMMUNISM.

    Because, with COMMUNISM religion gets sent down the river anyway (as part of the deal). And Communism has killed and harmed more people the world over than religion. Even with Islam in the mix (which is a pretty strong and illegitimate destroyer).

    And it’s not about how it would affect YOU, per se. But how it will affect SOCIETY as a whole.

    Those who brought up paedophilia, polygamy (and other variables of such…) and other weird ass perversions (like the guy in Sweden who got caught boink-ing a parked bike (and was called a “cycle shagger”) on CCTV) can see the forest for the trees.

    Don’t get lost in that Libtard meme meant to send you astray and at ease. This is more big than one person’s comfort. And in the end it’s about tyranny, control, tradition smashing and Big Gubmint all up in your grill.

    Think about it.

    Skunky on June 26, 2013 at 5:13 pm

I live in Sacramento Cali, where the populace voted gay marriage down twice, however, it doesn’t matter, see, voting doesn’t matter when an agenda is focused on with laser beam precision. Ha.

Big D on June 26, 2013 at 4:17 pm

Polygamy is the next thing in line. You already see efforts to mainstream the practice in recent television programing.

I normally don’t do this but I am going to now just because…I want it known that I like, and love Gay Conservatives and I am glad there are some (and wish for many more) but I want to point out there is a distinction between Gay Conservatives and Libtard ones. Sometimes the GC don’t appreciate those of us who don’t support gay “marriage” but I also don’t like when peeps think they can just bash gays ‘just because’ a topic such as this comes up. Many of our Gay Conservative friends are great sports when it comes to this touchy subject. I just want to remind others of that.

DS is so very right in this column. I feel so sad where this country is headed. It’s not good and it’s already started. The pot o’toads water is starting to get more warm. Just know that if you don’t.

If Libtard gays are gonna re-define our traditions and society stabilizers why don’t we start re-defining THEM? I’m gonna.

I reject the LBGT acronym. Who decided Lezzer’s should be first? No doubt they annoyingly strong-armed their designation first. I reject that. They are the most annoying so they should be LAST.

I’m kicking out the nasty Bisexuals. They are horrible and liars and did nothing for the cause. Buh-bye bisexuals.

The group of the lumpen-non-heteros that get the most crap and abuse are Transexuals. I like them the most so THEY get first bidding in my re-definition.

There is no longer any LGBT in my world. They are now known as TGL. And that is what I will call them. If they don’t like it, tough. Get with the times!

There was a 13 YO hazed by fellow (heterosexual?) wrestlers in Colorado. His fellow boy wrestlers sodomized him with a pencil. Instead of everybody being outraged by his abuse/rape the town rallied around the BULLIES who sodomized him. They ran the whole family out of town and wanted to protect the 3 sodomizing predators.

IF that is what “gay” acceptance means in 2013 I want NOTHING to do with it. It’s no different than Feminazis mistreating men when at one time they frowned on men mistreating women. It is also a misrepresentation of allowable “gay” lifestyles. Just like when Hollywood makes all their Lesbian movie characters easily sleep with men. It’s offensive and should NEVER be condoned. Is it an unseen negative consequence of all this gay acceptance the Libtard gays won’t shut up about???

The USA is circling the drain and all the vermin, freaks and pervos are winning. It’s tragic to behold.

And I didn’t even get to the Mooooooslims yet!!

The more I think about today’s decision, the more a few things have been occurring to me.

1) I have a feeling that there will be enough people marching under the rainbow flag persecuting the churches and synagogues with the government serving as their agents to heat up this culture war quite a bit. This is not to say that all or most gays want to bring down the conservative religious institutions in this country (I count some such friends of religion amongst my friends) but those who want to see us suffer are out there, with people in government as their allies. In numbers. And they’re licking their chops to get revenge on institutions they think have wronged them. The HATE us. They’re not going to let this or any opportunity slip.

2) I doubt that there will be a way to set today’s decision to rights on a national level available to us any time in the next few decades. Turnover is too slow in the Federal level and especially in SCOTUS. What we need is freedom-loving state politicians in red states and red counties to run on a “contempt of court” platform, advocating telling SCOTUS to go take a hike. We’re NOT going to recognize SSM. We’re GOING to prosecute abortionists, we’re going to offer ecumenical prayers in school. We’re GOING to fund Jewish and Christian schools. We’re GOING to allow our citizens to associate however they please and with whomever they please and for whatever reason they please. We’re going to do as we damn well please on things that are none of the federal government’s damn business.

It’ll take a long time for that strategy to start working. But like the Left, we have to be patient. They worked for decades for the symbolic victory of abolishing marriage. We can work for decades for a real victory of restoring freedom. At first, we just need politicians talking about it. Getting on TV, Youtube, Twitter. Telling viewers that they can have their freedom back without having to listen to SCOTUS or POTUS or any of those other G-d Damned (and I mean that literally) OTUS’s that want to run our lives.

Eventually one state will come over to the freedom, federalism and contempt of court side. Then another. Enough states do that, and there’s NOTHING the Feds can do about it. What are they going to to do? Invade? Because people won’t record “marriage” licenses? Because we won’t enforce stupid laws? Please.

This is the rise of the greco roman, greek part of our culture that subverts and despises the judeo-christian part. Especially the judeo part of our western civ and it’s culture. The ‘gods’, of those pantheons, were always having sex with each other and with humans, and taking out their angers on the humans and each other. The only real pleasure for humans was to get drunk or death. This was the greek writers, wrote in the 4th century in their plays, of the incomprehensible nature of their culture and it’s meaninglessness. The loving eternality of the creator, of a personal
father figure who had a personal relationship with the creation and people was despised and lost, and hated to this day. So.. here we are… the whole vampire bit, the whole neurotic tribe of the lost bit, the disbelief in the family, the father, the mother, G-D and standards that set marriage as a sacred union, and the natural
limitations to endless self gratification, that included the development of family, children, community, nation, are and have been eroded by our pitiful ‘progressive culture’ that wants the rights to do whatever feels good, demanding each new iteration of ‘godhood’ and the attendent rights therein for oddity in the name of the
right to be whatever feels good.
Hence the right and court rulings for ‘transgendered’ to decide their own sexual identity- rather than natures decision, and the ‘rights’ for such to use any bathroom in a school, regardless of their ‘born’ gender.
Well…. a bit of a rambling overview, but the point is, that the Left, the progressives have always idealized this removal of all cultural norms as atavisms of the hated judeo-christian heritage, and destroyed whole societies in the 20th century with this
destruction of 3000 yr old western values, morals and culture.

The thought of a man mounting another man’s ass just doesn’t appeal to me, least of all as the basis for a marriage. I find it even less appealing now that all 50 states will be forced to recognize such “marriages,” regardless of which state they were performed.

I have no problem with civil unions for legal purposes. However, I am against gay marriage. Why? Because gay and lesbian couples can NEVER perform the most basic of biological drives. Thy can not produce a child by their union. Eggs from to women ir sperm from two men can not achieve this.

Again science teaches us our most important drive is to pass on our genes. Homosexuals can not produce a child from their union. So marriage is sacred because it promotes this drive, which gay couples can never do.

Yesterday, today and tomorrow will never have a gay couple that can make a baby.

Glen benjamin on June 26, 2013 at 8:13 pm

I wish there were a more serious dialog between conservatives who oppose gay-marriage and conservatives who are not.

So far as I can tell (and I am not a lawyer), this SC ruling canceled one part of DOMA, that which granted the Feds the ability to ignore a state’s legal definition of marriage in relation to federal benefits. In other words, the federal definition of “marriage,” under DOMA, usurped a right of the states. The section of DOMA that required a state not recognizing gay marriage to recognize such a marriage if performed in another state was not addressed. I’ve always thought that the provision of DOMA that was struck down was indeed unconstitutional. And, for about 10 years I’ve hoped that the matter was left solely–and I mean solely–to the discretion of the states. This would allow people to vote with their feet if the matter were important enough to them. Also, it would allow those in states that are squarely in the anti-gay-marriage camp to enjoy their status quo.

I agree that there is a trend toward support for gay marriage. But, to me, that doesn’t justify citizens who live in states that reject gay marriage deciding federal benefits for those who live in states that accept it.

More generally, many here seem to believe that there are unseen hordes of latent necrophiliacs/pedophiles/animal “lovers”/polygamists/etc. that will now seize hold of our country. As I’ve said more than once before, those who believe this have far too much confidence in the malleability of human nature. “Adult monogamy (i.e., marriage between two adults) + occasional fooling around” is a robust standard in human societies. There are various sociobiological reasons for this–see the book I’m linking. Laws do not ensure the primacy of monogamy; laws reflect it.

Law can certainly decrease the rate of marriage by altering female cost-benefit calculations (e.g, by funding bastardy among blacks), but I do not think there is any movement to incentivize polygamy. As for pedophilic marriages, given the legal marriage age in some states, such marriages already exist, with parental consent (and other conditions). It is hard to believe that such marriages would suddenly become an epidemic.

I don’t think dead people or animals have legal standing to enter into contracts. However, the former sometimes vote, so I could be in error. Nevertheless, it’s hard to imagine that much support could be garnered for changing such laws–and the very political SCOTUS is not going to lead on this.

Naturally, nothing I write here will have the least impact on anyone in the anti-gay-marriage camp.

Finally, I do think there will be some efforts to turn gays even more into a protected class. THIS concern is real.

Interestingly, the most gay-positive country in Europe–Netherlands–is now beginning to fight back against Islam. Also interesting is that the guy who started the pushback in earnest was the prominent and openly gay politician Pim Fortuyn, who laid the groundwork for today’s Party for Freedom (G. Wilders).

I set this out for your consideration.

skzion on June 26, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    “Interestingly, the most gay-positive country in Europe–Netherlands–is now beginning to fight back against Islam. ”

    Just pragmatism, I would guess.

    Gays see mulsim parasites now beating and raping their hosts, so they must be starting to awaken to the fact that once muslims inevitably reach critical mass, that they (gays) will begin to be hanged by the neck in public squares.

    I’ve always theorized that most gays were ardent supporters of unbridled immigration because they fancied the notion of boatloads of swarthy, musky men and boys who could (cheaply) be seduced into their gay lifestyle via low-paid job opportunities as their pool boys, gardeners, or bartenders, plied with cheap bottles of Trader Joe’s “two buck chuck” and wide-eyes amazement evoked from the immigrants by a few dollars (Gracias, senor!)cab fare tucked under their serapes after the all-night orgy is finally over and the gay masters’ Viagra and Locker Room supplies dwindle and it’s time for Pablo y Jose to slide their magnificently sturdy immigrant feet into their huaraches and retreat to their 20-to-an-apartment lodging but-they-aren’t-hostile-because-by-their-standards-in-the-old-country-America-is-a-paradise so the gays don’t feel guilty.

    But that’s just my theory and i don’t believe that there is one, single gay with the spiritual integrity to admit to such, anyway, so a theory it will always remain.

    DS_ROCKS! on June 27, 2013 at 7:37 am

      I kind of digressed from the initial question (lol- understatement), but to sum it up, the gays defended immigration at first because of their lust and now are retreating because they see that they’ve created a monster.

      DS_ROCKS! on June 27, 2013 at 7:43 am

        “to sum it up, the gays defended immigration at first because of their lust and now are retreating because they see that they’ve created a monster.”

        DSR, first, I agree that self-interest is important. However, your speculation begs the question: WHY has this change occurred in the Netherlands and not elsewhere, and WHY this timing and not another? Are gay male Nederlanders less bewitched by swarthy nooky? If the growing percent of Muzz leads to the realization that Muzz are not good for gays, why did France not initiate a political pushback years before the Netherlands?

        Second, I don’t see any problem with groups acting out of self-interest. Don’t we wish that Jews and gays in the US did the same thing, as regards to Islam?

        Third, given that others besides gays have been ardent immigrant supporters, does some other variable explain the ardent support from straight people? If so, why does this variable not explain support from gay people?

        Fourth, how can gays be blamed for “creating a monster” when the vast majority of men are straight? Are straight men immune to the charms of swarthy nooky?

        Fifth, I think you are rejecting the most obvious explanation for the Netherlands’ pushback: there is no anti-gay political force in the Netherlands. As E. E. Schattschneider notes, politics is about fights, and fights tend to have two sides, facing off on a political cleavage. As the “sides” are not generally homogeneous (meaning that there are various interests, typically competing, on each side), the key political event that must happen is that other conflicts are suppressed to avoid fracturing the side. In Netherlands, any residual Nederlander anti-gay stance has practically vanished in the past 20 years. Thus, Muslims are hardly appealing political partners to gays on gay issues. Thus the irony that anti-gay politicking may well undercut anti-Islam politicking.

        Finally, as far as I have been able to figure out, gay men (and straight men) mainly travel to Third World countries to enjoy their swarthy (or yellow) nooky. There’s a reason that I cannot walk around in Thailand or Cambodia without offers of pretty women, marijuana, hashish, boom-boom, boys, etc. And yes, it’s annoying, and no, I don’t participate.

          LOL! Good on you, skzion.

          You also brought up very compelling points regarding gay Nederlanders’ distinction regarding their socio-political milieu vs. other Euros. I don’t know enough at this point to answer that.

          And you also made the excellent point that gays aren’t the only group who historically support mass immigration – big (and small) business such as food processors, restaurant chains, Walmart, etc. sure do.

          However, I do think that gays being so vocal, organized and permanently under special “protected” status as persecuted minorities, give an air of righteousness to the support of mass immigration. Obviously, greedy corporations hide under the same umbrella of righteousness because it serves their selfish interests, as well,

          DS_ROCKS! on June 28, 2013 at 2:33 am

          ” However, I do think that gays being so vocal, organized and permanently under special “protected” status as persecuted minorities, give an air of righteousness to the support of mass immigration.”

the question is why is a group (in this case the gay community) allowed to change the definitions of words and their intended meanings.

they can have a civil union if the people of a state so chose but by them changing the definition of marriage destroys marriage by definition.

the word has gone nuts. savages on one side and stupid liberals on the other. sodom and gomorra revisited.

You are all wrong about Moslems and homosexuality. Most of the men do it all the time. Not so much the women. They are also partial to bestiality. These are actions unspoken in Islam, but very widespread.

Sorry to have to say that while the USA is ten years behind Europe, Israel is ten years behind the USA. We also have a supreme court of left wing jerks here in Israel as well as Gays that keep pushing for more and more with no limit. “Gay pride” parades take place now in all major cities including the holy city of Jerusalem. Gays are openly in the military and they lecture children in the public schools. The institution of marriage is also under attack here and unmarried mothers are also on the rise. This sickness effects ALL western civilization.

Paul on June 26, 2013 at 9:34 pm

Having debated the gay marriage activists online, I know they are certainly out to crush religious speech, freedom and institutions. They and the atheists are the most obnoxious and the most militant about their intentions, whether they admit them our not. Now if a gay couple moves from California to Pennsylvania and then want to divorce, must the courts of PA recognized their marriage? The SC was so hypocritical – they strike down DOMA because marriage and its definition is up to the states, but then in effect upholds a federal judge’s decision to strike down a state constitutional amendment Proposition 8 on “lack of standing.” Cudos to Sotomayor for joining the minority (no pun intended) in saying there was standing to uphold the law. In this case, Justice Sotomayor is a wise Latina.

My father grew up in an Orthodox Jewish home, my mother a Reform Jewish home. I grew up in a Conservative Jewish home. I remember going to an occasional Reform service as a child and noticing there were very few prayers in Hebrew. I now attend a Reform Jewish synagogue, the services are conducted mostly in Hebrew and members of the congregation, both male and female, are encouraged to learn and regularly read from the Torah. How many Orthodox Jewish women are given that opportunity? Any? I don’t think so.
On what basis then would a reasonable person conclude that Reform Jews are less Jewish?

RCCA on June 26, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    the fact that women are encouraged to learn and read from the torah is an advertising spiel as much as anything- because they are not encouraged to follow halacha. That was what jewish women for all did for over 3000 yrs. the last 200 yrs has the progressive agenda, one of anti-religious movements rationalizing their ‘improvements’ by being more ‘diverse’, less restrictive, etc etc.
    I think your oversimplification vis a vis, ‘how many orthodox jewish women are given that opportunity’ is for the most part laughable. That you think these reform women are scholars, more learned, somehow more ‘knowledgeable’ about being jewish- halachic jewish is simply false. It is your insinuation that orthodox women are some
    bunch of illiterates compared to the new age jews of reform….. oh, dark :^)

    mgoldberg on June 26, 2013 at 10:33 pm

    RCCA, keep learning. Orthodox women, at least in Israel always are learning. We just do it separate from the men. As for reading Torah, no, not in front of men but if there are no men to lead, a woman may do it. I can’t speak for the Ashkenazi but Sephardi women are not only permitted to read from the Megillah in public, if there is no man present who can do it, a woman who can is obligated to do so.

    I have seen Reform congregations turning to Hebrew and Kashrut, at least in the synagogue but the things that separate us are Reform’s acceptance of mixed marriages, gays and the authenticity of Torah as God given and infallible, if not literal. You still have a way to go on halacha but keep working at it.

    Italkit on June 27, 2013 at 7:06 am

    “On what basis then would a reasonable person conclude that Reform Jews are less Jewish?”

    RCCA, Reform Judaism isn’t bound to Halacha whatsoever. That your group reads the Five Books in Hebrew doesn’t change this.

I’m simply dumbfounded that in such a short amount of time male-on-male buttsex and lady-in-lady…ummmm…i don’t know…fisting(?) has become not only normalized but celebrated by a majority of Americans and citizens of democratic states around the world.

And there is no possible way to restrict any other type of relationship any longer. Once marriage is no longer a man and woman, there is no legal or moral leg to stand on to restrict any other relationship between consenting people. Notice I did not say “consenting adults” because I guarantee by the time my 20-month-old daughter graduates high school, there will be activists pushing for, if not already having achieved, the normalization of adult-child sex. We already provide birth control to junior high and high school kids so we’ve obviously accepted that teens are fully capable of making decisions about sex – to assume their only going to do it with people there own age is utterly simplistic. The garbage “discrimination” and “born this way” and “consenting” arguments will absolutely be made in support of 49 year old dudes that want to get with 15 year old girls and the Debbie LaFave’s of the world.

And the gay activists will absolutely work with their political elite allies to crush religious freedom. This is not even a question.

    DS_ROCKS! on June 27, 2013 at 2:24 pm

The recent decisions of the SCOTUS–like all decisions of the SCOTUS that I have seen within the last 10 years–operate under a single principle. Do you really think that the financial powers that really operate behind the scenes would allow a series of judges to make “independent” decisions without their say-so? If you do, you are very naïve. And even if you don’t want to believe or refuse to believe that the game is rigged, all you need to do is to examine the decisions of the SCOTUS over a period of time, and then you will be struck by the ineluctable pattern.

So what is the prime principle that the SCOTUS judges absolutely MUST follow, regardless of whether it’s a 5-4, 6-3, 7-2, 8-1, or 9-0 decision–and regardless of the composition of those justices? Here it is in a nutshell. If one party is big business or big government and the other party is a small organization or an individual, big business or big government WINS. ALWAYS. Period. End of story. It’s as simple as that.

So let’s see if you understand how this works?

In a SCOTUS decision just this last Monday, one party was a manufacturer of generic drugs and the other party was a woman who suffered burns and was nearly blinded by the prescription drug from the manufacturer. A jury had already awarded the woman millions of dollars in damages, and the manufacturer lost the appeal. Do you need to know about the facts, circumstances, pharmacology, medicine, statistics, or the law to know how the SCOTUS would decide?

Not at all. Just apply my principle and you will KNOW with 100% certainty how the SCOTUS will decide. If you concluded that the manufacturer won, congratulations.

Now, let’s turn to the current two SCOTUS cases concerning gay rights and marriages.

Ask yourself the KEY question: What would big business want to see happen?

The fact is that the gay community is a powerful and influential group. The are the KEY players in many important industries. They are, as a group, very wealthy. And they tend to be the drivers of many business and cultural trends, whether you like it or not. They are also big spenders.

This is all you need to know:

Cliff Asness–A quantitative financial theorist who founded a systematic trading hedge fund in his time at Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS), Asness currently runs his hedge fund in AQR Capital Management.

Asness joined forces with four other wealthy Republicans, providing a pivotal $1.5 million donation to the “Win More States Fund” of the New York-based Freedom to Marry. The five wealthy libertarian Republicans are considered to be the major financiers of the successful effort to legalize same-sex marriage in New York state.

Jeff Bezos–As Benzinga reported in our list of Top Libertarian CEOs in Business Today, the Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) CEO made his biggest splash in activism to-date with a record $2.5 million contribution to defend Washington state’s same-sex marriage law in 2012.

Steven Cohen–A billionaire Republican and former federal prosecutor who served as New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s right-hand man, The New York Times credits Cohen with “direct[ing] the administration’s effort to legalize same-sex marriage.”

Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer–In 2012, the diehard progressive Gates and his fellow Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) co-founder Steve Ballmer joined forces to defend same-sex marriage in Washington, contributing $100,000 each.

Gates would up the ante, providing an additional $500,000 to Washington United for Marriage in 2012 with his wife Melinda .

David Geffen–The openly gay media mogul and billionaire David Geffen has contributed $1.5 million to support gay marriage efforts in California. Outside of several record companies, Geffen was one of three founders of DreamWorks Studios, now owned by Viacom (NASDAQ: VIAB).

Tim Gill–Colorado software millionaire Tim Gill founded Quark Inc., in 2004. An extremely dedicated activist, Gill committed $10 million in support of LGBT issues in 2006 alone, and in 2010, raised $800,000 for a pro-LGBT organization he founded. More recently, Gill put down $25,000 to defeat local Colorado candidates who opposed same-sex marriage.

Peter Lewis–The chairman of insurance giant Progressive (NYSE: PGR) is a diehard liberal donor who also happens to have a son that is homosexual. For years, he’s donated millions to support the same-sex marriage cause.

Daniel Loeb–Loeb is a Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO) investor who now runs Third Point LLC, a New York-based hedge fund with $11.6 billion in assets. Loeb joined Asness, Cohen and two other billionaire Republicans with liberal social views, posting a $1.5 million donation that helped fuel New York’s same-sex marriage victory in 2012.

John Morgridge–The billionaire chairman of Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) — once CEO of the company — has been an active financier of gay marriage campaigns. In 2008, he helped back the movement against Proposition 8 in California.

Michael Moritz–Moritz is a big-time venture capitalist at Sequoia Capital, whose investments have included Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL), Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA), LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD) and many others. In 2008, he was included in a petition favoring marriage equality in California.

Pierre Omidyar–The founder of eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY), Omidyar has become a dedicated philanthropist, backing the “No on 8? movement and attaching his name to the petition urging California voters to support marriage equality. (Photo: Wikimedia Commons).

Larry Page and Sergey Brin–The Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) co-founders have been active supporters of same-sex marriage. In 2008, Bern and Page donated $100,000 and $40,000, respectively, to defeat Proposition 8.

Steven Roth–Conservative billionaire Steven Roth is a real estate developer and has a son that is homosexual. Together with his wife, the Roth family has donated a total of $33,600, supporting Republican New York state senators who backed same-sex marriage.

Eric Schmidt–Schmidt is the Executive Chairman at Google, serving as the tech giant’s CEO from 2001 to 2011. A major Obama supporter, Schmidt attached his name to the “No on 8? petition featuring tech giants like eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and venture capitalist Michael Moritz.

Howard Schultz–The Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) CEO made major headlines in the last few days for taking on a company shareholder who didn’t like Schultz’s public endorsement of same-sex marriage. The company, in an effort spearheaded by Schultz, defended Washington state’s same-sex marriage provisions in 2012.

Paul Singer–Like Roth, Singer also has a gay son. Despite his support of Mitt Romney in 2012, the head of Elliott Management Corporation — a hedge fund — joined four other Republican donors including Cliff Asness, contributing $1.5 million toward legalizing gay marriage in New York state.

Jeffrey Skoll–Skoll was once the president at eBay. He was also one of the bigger names who opposed Proposition 8 in California, which would have outlawed same-sex marriage.

Jon Stryker–The heir of Kalamazoo, Michigan-based Stryker Corporation (NYSE: SYK) founder Homer, Jon and his sister committed a combined $1.85 million in efforts to legalize same-sex marriage back in 2006. In 2010, Styker contributed $602,000 in support of LGBT rights and two years later, he gave $325,000 to defeat a Minnesota measure which would have made same-sex marriage illegal.

Peter Thiel–The founder of PayPal is an openly gay libertarian who has been active in causes to legalize same-sex marriage. Thiel also helped found GOProud, an organization representing conservative/libertarian gays, lesbians and their allies.

Jeffrey Yang and David Filo–Yahoo’s co-founders, Yang and Filo, joined Pierre Omidyar, Eric Schmidt and others in their backing of the “No on 8? movement that opposed California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008.

And so on, and so forth.

Are we getting the picture yet?

Remember the principle the next time a SCOTUS case comes up. And by the way, I was one of the few people to predict with absolute certainty that Obamacare would get the thumbs-up. The principle told me what the decision would be. I asked myself: Would big government win or the would the rights of the individual prevail? See what I mean? Works each and every time. Without fail.

What I read today that sickened me most was the headline “Obama: I won’t force churches to perform gay marriages”. Well Barry, that’s mighty white of ya’. I guess that means that if you feel like it you CAN force churches to perform gay marriages. Tell ya’ what Harrison (as in Harrison J Bounel). You may think you can force churches to perform gay marriages, but I advise against it since you are a moslem. As a moslem will you force mosques to perform gay marriages? Oh, just churches huh? I’m sure synagogues slipped your mind and that you will force them to perform gay marriages also.

Barry’s first term demonstrated that he was a wannabe dictator. His second term is demonstrating that he is now an actual dictator. When his second term is over, and the international elite anoint him as permanent Politburo Chairman, then Reggie Love will be able to take his rightful place next to Obama forming the true “first couple”.

Another disturbing outcome of this decision is the political cover it gives to a number of me-too Republicans. For instance, Rubio came out against today’s decisions. Duh, look how conservative he is. He hopes actions like this will offset his leadership of the immigration bill. That is what the Republicans do. They take turns. For every major bill, about 1/3 will take a conservative position (obviously those up for election). And there are trade-offs so they can ‘support’ their conservative credentials.

For instance, maybe a Republican who supports today’s decision will criticize abortion next week, or some other such symbolic gesture. I’m sure they work it out so each of them can take a few conservative positions, and in the meantime, make sure all the liberal legislation gets passed, and liberal judicial decisions get promulgated. For all I know, they have a computer program to work out their political stances to maximum advantage.
