re: TN judge refuses to grant divorce - refers to USSC gay marriage ruling as reason - Duke
[quote]The ruling as it stands, would grant incestuous marriages legal standing. Brother/brother, sister/sister.. polygamy.. etc. [/quote] Yes it certainly does. Incest would be easier to work around as the state has a compelling reason not to allow it. Polygamy though, I'm not sure there's a wor...

re: TN judge refuses to grant divorce - refers to USSC gay marriage ruling as reason - Duke
The "overrule" was likely claiming it is interstate commerce. If it's not, the state can decide but since all manufacturing and farming is interstate commerce the commerce clause applies. I read the blurbs, so I could be wrong. I do know SCOTUS likes to play fast and loose with interstate com...

re: States with stricter gun laws have fewer gun related deaths. - Duke
[quote]While it’s cer­tainly true that a num­ber of factors con­trib­ute to the high rates of gun vi­ol­ence in the U.S., a com­par­is­on of state laws versus rates of shoot­ing deaths does show a cor­rel­a­tion[/quote] :lol: So we learned people in rural states are better shots and/or have li...

[quote]while overrule may have been an incorrect term, they have made rulings that conflicted with previous ones, essentially rendering them obsolete. [/quote] Exactly. [quote]It was a 5-4 vote. It's possible that it was an incorrect ruling that will be nullified in the future at some point. ...

re: States with stricter gun laws have fewer gun related deaths. - Duke
I didn't read the study but find the initial reporting suspicious. How do they tease out socioeconomic factors. What defines a gun murder? The states that have lax gun control laws tend to have more poverty per capita. That's some statistical magic to seperate the gun control effect from educati...

[quote]Has the USSC ever reversed itself on an opinion in later yrs? Or is one decision (one singular swing vote) always left to stand as the absolute right and truth for all time?[/quote] They don't really overturn so much as jump through ridiculous logical hoops to get around previous rulings t...

re: TN judge refuses to grant divorce - refers to USSC gay marriage ruling as reason - Duke
They federalized the definition (and didn't say it couldn't be defined) to reflect the 14th amendment and due process ruling. They didn't claim it was undefinable. Reasonable people can disagree over the application of the equal protection and due process overriding the 10th. The two of us do. T...

[quote]The supreme court said states don't have the right to define what is or isn't a marriage so how do they now have the right to dissolve something they can't define?[/quote] What? The function of marriage legally is definable and defined. You combine property, insurance, taxes, hospital v...
