U.S. Supreme Court Temporarily Puts Brakes on Utah Same-Sex Wedlocks

Same-Sex couples can no longer do the happy wedded bliss dance in Utah due to a temporary halt of marriage licenses to gay couples due to the U.S. Supreme Court, reported CNN. This ruling allows Utah state officials to uphold their state ban on gay marriages while the federal court judge’s decision is appealed.


For many Utah residents who voted in favor of traditional biblical marriage principles which support marriage between a man and a woman, Federal Court District Judge Robert Shelby ‘s decision last month was a blow. The judge decided that the state same-sex marriage ban was somehow unconstitutional when it forbid lesbians and gays from being legally married.


The federal judge relied upon the “Equal Protection and Due Process” safeguard of the U.S. Constitution to decide that gay couples were being deprived of their rights due to the Utah state ban. The 2004 ban had been supported and approved by Utah voters which coincide with the general principled beliefs of the state’s residents.

Well, gee.

If you look at the picture at the top of this page with 2 babies in arms, I can only wonder:

If she and her cannot get married, how can these two kids have both a mom and mother?

There have been many great empires and countries where and when moral decline became the norm, that societies collapsed. Morality matters and when families collapse the children are the one's suffering the most. Homosexuality is not okay.  The courts are collapsing right before our eyes when they rule based on the political winds.  In light of this, it's fair to ask what is moral?

May Utah prevail! Along with other states that have it defined in their Constitutions that marriage is between one man and one woman.

Richard, you are 100% correct

The Courts don't care about what the people want this is no longer a government for and by the people.  This is just a stall in the end the perverts will marry.   We have lost freedom and I personally think the only way we get it back is with a lot of blood!

Time for the States to inform the Fed, this is not your business and your decisions will be ignored!

Hooray for Utah!  Now make it stick!  Maybe other states will do the same.
