Gay Marriage Arguments Divide Supreme Court Justices…

Blaze and Spitfire AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Before I start this article I would like to ask a question. Is it in the best interest of a nation to have nine people decide the fate of so many important issues? It seems that appointing judges is about selecting persons with political ideology that are willing to manipulate whatever law or series of laws as required to achieve that ideology.

In most cases many Americans, including me have lost much faith in the Supreme court. Never the less, an important and much debated decision is on the horizon for these nine judges.

So what is the definition of marriage as stated in the Constitution? Is there any ambiguity there? Isn’t this the only issue, if anyone wants to re-define the word “marriage” then wouldn’t that require an amendment to the Constitution? In my eyes this is the starting point, we must always stand by the constitution as it was written by our forefathers.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday was deeply divided over one of the great civil rights issues of the age, same-sex marriage. But Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, whose vote is probably crucial, gave gay rights advocates reasons for optimism based on the tone and substance of his questions.

In two and a half hours of arguments over whether the Constitution guarantees same-sex couples the right to marry, Justice Kennedy sent conflicting signals. At some points, he seemed wary of moving too fast and torn about what to do. But his demeanor was more emotional and emphatic when he made the case that same-sex couples should be permitted to marry. He is also the author of three landmark opinions expanding the rights of gay Americans.

The other justices for the most part played to type, clashing over what they saw as the right answer in the case and also over how to reach it. The questioning illuminated their conflicting views on history, tradition, biology, constitutional interpretation, the democratic process and the role of the courts in prodding social change.

If the Supreme Court declares a constitutional right to same sex marriage under amendments from over 100 years ago, we can expect this issue to be with us for the rest of our lives just as the Roe v Wade decision has dominated our politics since the Court came up with that right about 40 years ago.

The justices were right. Marriage has always defined as between a man and a woman for thousands of years and marriage has been very successful as a foundation of society, so the argument to redefine it is weak at best. Especially in my eyes because gay marriage does not even give any chance for a child to be raised by biological parents- that is wrong. I predict the court will let the states decide which is the right thing to do since we have such a need to have smaller government and take control back to more local levels.

What are your thoughts?
