Wow. I'm pretty sure, regardless of whether you think marriage originated on a higher, spiritual plane or not, we don't need the Supreme Court deciding constitutional cases based on theology. More specifically, to Christians marriage is a union blessed by God, but that should not control Supreme Court dispositions. Unless that phrase is found in our constitution or federal statutes somewhere, it has no place in judicial analysis.

I wasn't calling it any of the above. Only irrelevant to a discussion of Supreme Court analysis.

I would imagine that, as a Christian, you believe that everyone will have to answer for their decisions--so I'm not sure why the Supreme Court needs to take special consideration in this particular decision not to offend God. I would think that they would need to pay heed to that responsibility regardless of the import of their decision.

So, again, I'm not "scoffing" at your religion--only at its relevance to Supreme Court decision-making.

The point I made in the prior post, and will repeat now: the SOTUS can manufacture whatever 'right' it wishes to out of 'creative literature' interpretaion of the Constitution, but it will STILL have to deal with the Almighty if they violate HIS laws with their decision

The Supreme Court decided today it will hear two cases surrouding gay marriage with rulings coming down as Spring 2013. More from POLITICO:

The Supreme Court announced Friday that it will take up same-sex marriage, hearing both a case stemming from California’s Proposition 8 voter-approved ban on gay marriage and a case from New York challenging the constitutionality of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

The pair of moves greatly increase the chances that the justices will rule this term on whether the U.S. Constitution guarantees same-sex couples the right to marry. However,...
