Clarence Thomas Wants SCOTUS to 'Correct the Error' of Legal Gay Marriage

Oh hell yes, this absolutely needs to happen

I was always for legal partnerships that gave homosexuals the same rights (I.e. health Beni’s, inheritance Rights, hospital visits, SS Beni’s, etc)

but the definition of marriage should not be forced by the feds

Hopefully we go after men that want to pretend to be women so they can unfairly compete in athletics as well

Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas argued in a Friday opinion that the nation's top judicial body should overrule a previous decision legalizing LGBTQ marriage nationwide and a former ruling that determined criminalizing sodomy is unconstitutional.

Redefining marriage was a travesty. The ship may have sailed, however.

Problem with the passive attitude is that is absolutely will not stop there. Polymarriage (and worse) is on the horizon.

I give precisely zero fricks about gay marriage one way or the other. I just want Federal overreach to stop and for these issues to go back to the states where they belong.

Gonna need to know more about this one. I assume it’s an additional charge on top of rape, which is weird that that got protected.

The gay marriage issue revolves around one thing and one thing alone - wether gay couples get to enjoy the same benefits of straight couples. Tax treatment and including spouse on health insurance.

Thats it, thats all this debate is about. No law can force your church to marry them. Its about wether or not the state recognizes it as a union. They’re going to cohabitate anyway, wether the union is recognized or not.

Some states have old laws on the books that make sodomy illegal, even if between consenting adults. I believe that is what its referring to. Louisiana is one of those states if memory serves correctly.

You can keep saying that; it doesn't make it true.

Meh. The government should have no say in what marriage to recognize. Marriage is religious.

If it centers around healthcare then modify healthcare laws. I see no reason why I cannot but health insurance for anyone I choose, relative or otherwise.

Some employers insure an entire family for a set price. In fact, mine is the same whether I have 1 kid or 12 kids. My employer won't let me put just anyone on the policy though.

I'm pretty sure congress can pass federal laws legalizing abortion and gay marriage. The cowards are either too lazy and stupid to do so (See Obama Administration w/ 60 senate super majority of 111th Congress) or they want to preserve the narrative for making disingenuous arguments to the electorate (hint: it's the latter).

I think threatening the Supreme Court pissed Thomas off a bit. What else you got?

All of that.
The federal government doesn't need to be involved in any issue that touches the individual. Send it ALL back to the states.
If some retards want to marry animals and inanimate objects then they can lobby their state reps or run for a position in their state legislature and make their case.

Unfortunately, I can't provide a link, but I do recall in the aftermath of Obergefell that a leftist news outlet (probably The New Yorker) said that there can't be conscience protections for clergy who don't want to perform rainbow weddings, nor can there be such protections for wedding vendors, because that would make LGBT couples "unequal."

The militant left too far into forcing unwilling people into participating in their lifestyle ceremonies.

Hopefully the SCOTUS can do something to protect the rights of those who object to rainbow stuff for religious reasons (meaning Christians and not just Muslims).

Should this be defined at the state level as well?

It should be, but it isn't.

As long as the State is involved in Marriages, under the Equal Protection Clause (among other things), there clearly needs to be an allowance for same sex Marriages. Its not even a question for me.

Now, if States get out of the marriage game all together, that's another ball game.

Which is bull shite. Neither of those have anything to do with defense, immigration, foreign treaties, or regulation of interstate commerce; therefore, they should be state issues. It's crazy how we have become so accustomed to abuse of the Commerce Clause that Republicans use it often too.

I used to believe that Progressives were the angriest and intolerant group in America.

This Dobbs decision has me thinking that SoCons are giving them some competition.
