“Catholic” Kennedy overturns Defense of Marriage Act June 26, 2013

And, the Supreme Court also vacated the decision of the Ninth Circuit Court regarding Proposition 8 in California from 2008, leaving the district court ruling against the constitionality – of a constitional amendment – standing (I remind, the district court judge in the case was a homosexual who strongly favors “marriage”). So, Prop 8 is overturned at present, but I guess they can re-file another appeal.  And for God’s sake get the case out of the 9th circuit of Soviet justice.

So, the federal government is now officially in the position of not only permitting, but favoring, state recognition of homosexual marriage.  Expect lawsuits against all state laws against this abomination immediately, so within 2-3 years, every state will have to recognize the impossible – homosexuals can be “married.” As for Kennedy’s decision, it’s blindingly stupid:

The class to which DOMA directs its restrictions and restraints are those persons who are joined in same-sex marriages made lawful by the State. DOMA singles out aclass of persons deemed by a State entitled to recognitionand protection to enhance their own liberty. It imposes a disability on the class by refusing to acknowledge a status the State finds to be dignified and proper. DOMA instructs all federal officials, and indeed all persons with whom same-sex couples interact, including their own children, that their marriage is less worthy than the marriages of others.  [Well, Justice Kennedy, if you were any kind of faithful Catholic, you would know that these marriage are, indeed, invalid and worthless.  You can wave your magic wand and get the state to do whatever you will, you unelected unaccountable oligarch, but that doesn’t make “homosexual marriage” any less of an oxymoron.  So, can we have Justice Kennedy interdicted now, since he has ruled directly counter to a clearly defined Doctrine?] The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity. [Really!  And yet, Justice Kennedy, you voted with the majority in Planned Parenthood vs. Casey, which defined that the federal government could INDEED deny the protection of personhood to some, even some the various states sought to protect through laws against abortion!  And I would argue that an extremely legitimate purpose is associated with DOMA, which is to protect the very foundational element of all civilizations, the marriage between one man and one woman.  What a load of self-serving hypocritical horse hockey.  I must also note that Kennedy was the turncoat “conservative” justice who voted with the majority in Lawrence vs. Texas, overturning state sodomy laws. He’s been a one man wrecking crew of morality and virtue] By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment. This opinion and its holding are confined to those lawful marriages. [I’m making my tongue bleed I’m biting it so hard]

So, what Kennedy – an ostensible Catholic! – is saying, is that it is wrong under the “equal protection clause,” one of the most abused amendments to the US constitution, for the federal government to deny rights to those individuals who have been granted “rights” by various states. What he leaves unsaid, is that this now creates the massive problem of different definitions of marriage in the various states.  And as I noted, the hypocrisy is breathtaking.

With this precedent in hand, it is difficult to see how the 30 plus state laws defining marriage to be between a man and a woman have much of a chance.

So, Fr. Rodriguez, and Michael Voris, and I were right: we will see state recognition of homosexual simulation of marriage as marriage in all 50 states within the foreseeable future.  This recognition will be the vehicle to attempt to silence the Church on any number of matters related to morality.

As I said in another context yesterday, I am not surprised, but I am terrified. The state has arrogated such awesome powers to itself that any thought of “democracy” is a fantasy – whatever the state wills, the state will get. And the state is dominated by those who are completely, totally given over to the leftist sexular pagan mindset.

May God have mercy on us all.  And may He give us the strength to remain faithful, and raise up innumerable Saints in the coming dark times.

I think, more than ever, we’re in the midst of the Fatherless books (Brian Gail)… or at least that’s what it seems like.

Now he is in for it. In short order our American Cardinals Wuerl and Dolan will step in and remind these people that they will uphold the Catholic Truth or consider themselves outside of the Church. No more Holy Communion for Kennedy or his ilk! What was he thinking?

I know! How dumb can you be, when you know the Hammer of Heretics himself, Cardinal Wuerl, will see him out of the Church in no time? Interdict! Ha! We’re sure to see an excommunication for the ages. Kennedy will have to crawl on his knees in sackcloth and ashes all the way from the Supreme Court building to the cathedral!

And then I woke up.

Time for the church to get out of the business of being agents of civil marriage – leave that to the JPs.

tantamergo - June 26, 2013

I disagree, because this will encourage more and more souls having their marriages sanctified by the Church. Many people, perhaps not strong in the Faith, will not want to have to go through two wedding ceremonies.

Plus, it is really the civil authorities that took something the Church had developed – a marriage sanctified by God in His Church – and began to apply their own perogatives to it and give such benefits. It was government entry into civil marriage that led to tax breaks for marrieds and things of that nature. You are asking the Church to give up something it essentially developed, and which the state then glommed onto for its own purposes. Why should the Church just roll over and permit that?

Dismas - June 26, 2013

You are quite correct. Marriage is not the province of the state, either to create or to destroy. When you suggest it is…you have to expect these results. So, how about…we don’t issue driver’s licenses, the state gets clean out of the “marriage” business?

Sacrament of Holy Matrimony is the only true bond of God, man and woman and no secular entity or government can alter that. Period.
