Supreme Court same-sex 'marriage' case

Kim Davis, the Ky. clerk who refuses to issue same-sex "marriage" licenses

Sarah Kaplan and James Higdon

Kim Davis was narrowly voted into office last November. Her mother had been county clerk for nearly 40 years before her, and for 26 of them Davis had worked under her as deputy. She wasn’t looking to shake things up, she told the Morehead News at the time. She just wanted to do a good job. An Apostolic Christian, Davis says that her refusal to license same-sex "marriage" is “a Heaven or Hell decision.”

Rainbow Jihad Launches Religious War In America

It’s time to say plainly that the Left’s campaign against believing Christians and Jews isn’t just a public policy disagreement anymore. Much like ISIS in Syria and Iraq, the Left has escalated their campaign against believers into a war to extirpate Judeo-Christian religious belief and practice from the geography they occupy and all of America is now the target in their Rainbow Jihad.

Patriot County Clerks Defy Supreme Court On Same-Sex “Marriage”

While state governors, other than Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, have been reluctant to declare they will resist the Supreme Court’s recent anti-constitutional ruling on same-sex “marriage,” at the local level public officials are exercising their religious liberty, and standing for state prerogatives under the Constitution, by declaring they will not be bound by the Supreme Court’s same-sex “marriage” mandate.

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, argued on NBC's "Meet the Press" that members of the Supreme Court "put on an Obama jersey" by voting to uphold the Affordable Care Act and strike down restrictions on same sex marriage. "It is the justices who have politicized the Court," claimed the republican presidential contender.

Obergefell’s Threat to Religious Liberty

Adam Freedman, City Journal

Despite what the newspaper headlines say, the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges did not “legalize” same-sex marriage. It mandated same-sex marriage, something very different. 

Stand And Fight The Same-Sex "Marriage" Mandate

Observant Christians and Jews will be particularly put to the test and some, such as Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, have already caved-in to the demands of the secular left that they abandon their beliefs and accept the Supreme Court’s decision as final. Others, such as we here at CHQ, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal, our friends at the Family Research Council and the National Organization for Marriage, and others, see the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex “marriage” for what it is – a profoundly political decision that can be undone through political means.

In the Supreme Court's landmark decision on same-sex "marriage," the majority shockingly made no mention of the constitutional right to free exercise of religion - no wonder that religious Christian and Orthodox Jewish groups are worried.

Be the Best Saboteur You Can Be

Daniel Greenfield, Sultan Knish Blog

There is a Republican Party. The purpose of the party and its politicians, much like that of its Democratic counterpart, is to obtain money and privileges for its major donors. Expecting them to care as much about your issues as you do is unrealistic. They will only do the right thing insofar as it helps them do certain things which Greenfield lists in this article.

Supreme Court Mandates Same-Sex Marriage

In a ruling sure to spark a wave of protests and civil disobediance, the U.S. Supreme Court has issued a decision mandating same-sex marriage that upends millennia of history and guts the rule of law.
