Happy Hour News Briefs

Our old pal Rev. Fishsticks wants us to know that “When it comes to marriage and the family, 6/26/15 is our 9/11.”

That is the date when the Supreme Court decided Obergefell, which allowed marriage equality, which is totally the same as the worst terrorist attack on US soil. But wait! It get’s more offensive! Fishsticks compares marriage equality to Dred Scott, you know, so he can pit the ‘mos against the blahs, because that’s the way he rolls:

  1. “We the People” enacted the Constitution as the supreme law of the land.
  2. Since “all legislative powers” have been vested in Congress, according to Article I, it is constitutionally impossible for the Supreme Court to create the “law of the land.” The Court issues opinions; it does not create law.
  3. In the Constitution, “we the people” gave very limited powers of action to the central government in Article I, Section 8. If it’s not in there, the federal government has no authority to do it at all, and defining marriage is not in there.
  4. Since “we the people” gave no authority to the central government to define marriage, that power is reserved completely to the States and the people by the 10th Amendment.
  5. Therefore, Obergefell was as wrongly decided as Dred Scott was, and should be overturned or ignored as soon as humanly possible.

QED, Bitchez!!1!

As far as I know, there is no finite number of rights, and so granting equal rights to one group does not take them away from another, and yet, Fishsticks and his ilk seems to think that is how the word spins.

Jeebus weeps.

    “The Court issues opinions; it does not create law.”

    And it was the court’s opinion that laws forbidding same-sex marriage were unconstitutional.

    So far, same-sex marriage hasn’t killed anyone, nor has it caused any divorces (there was an Australian couple who said they’d divorce if same-sex marriage became legal there, but that they’d continue to live together and keep their family intact. Their grandstanding never happened).

      And the Obergefell decision is based on the 14th Amendment of the Constitution (the equal protection clause). Conservatives really, really hate that amendment,

    OK, fine. The definition of marriage is not in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. Neither is it in John 3:16 or anywhere else in the Bible for that matter. So what’s your point, dumbass? Rev Fishsticks is going to hell.

    Hello TG. People like this love states rights, until the local or state level votes to give rights and protections to the LGBTQ+. Then they spring into action to strip local rights away and instead enforce what ever discriminatory law they champion. The other thing they seem unaware of is that other countries have had same sex marriage and equal rights for LGBTQ+ for over 20 years. The world has not stopped spinning and no god came down to stop that stuff that makes him cry. Their whole argument on this issue can be summed up by ego. They must be important and their personal ideas / message is the most valuable because … their god! Hugs

    The feds have some skin in marriage definitions. For tax purposes, you need something consistent for filling status MFJ or MFS. If you’re married as far as the IRS is concerned, you’re married as far as the feds are concerned.
    Other than that, why would the feds actually care who marries whom for practical purposes?

    Not cause divorces? It caused my 1992 divorce retroactively! According to the Fishsticks Law of Gay Relativity and the time/space warp, my cousin’s marriage to his husband is a case in point. The mathematicals bear this out: Take the year I was divorced, add the years between then and the year my cousin was married, subtract my house number, divide by the square root of the circumference of my big toe,, something something pi (pie!), carry the 2, and multiply by the 3 (the number of letters in gay) and bingo. You get a number! And, if you turn the calculator upside down, it spells something. Or not.
