    This is indeed great news to hear. I am glad the SCOTUS stepped in and overruled a radical judge's ruling. Gay marriage should not be tolerated in the United States since it is a abomination. What we all should be promoting is the traditional marriage between man and woman. This is a win for moral family values and common decency.


    Supreme Court puts gay marriage on hold in Utah | Fox News


    The Supreme Court on Monday put gay marriage on hold in Utah, giving the state time to appeal a federal judge's ruling against Utah's same-sex marriage ban.

    The court issued a brief order Monday blocking any new same-sex unions in the state. The ruling comes after a Dec. 20 ruling by U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby that the state's ban on same-sex marriage violates gay and lesbian couples' constitutional rights.

    Gay marriage is inevitable. And only religious progressives believe in Government controlling our sex lives as marriage. Marriage is a Government issue for tax reasons only, get rid of the deductions and taxes and there is no reason for Government to be involved in a religious matter.

    The entire problem is a Federal tax code that rewards marriage

    You're the one that wants an unavoidable 94% tax rate... hard to do that when you don't want Government telling people who can and can't get married and then taxing them. Government people like Obama.

    Good that the Supreme Court put a halt to this. The solution here is to ask the residents of Utah during the midterms later this year. Let the residents of Utah decide the direction of their state.

    Now...as in California, there are some legally married gays in Utah..and some who are not allowed to get legally married. That barn door is now open...can't close it.

    This is where I become confused. Marriage s a conservative concept.

    Why are conservatives against it and gays for it?

    Gays want to be more conservative why don't we let them?

    Putting civil rights up for a ballot question is one of the worst things you can do to a group of people you know.

    What do you think would happen if the people of Alabama were left to decide the fate of the African American communities in the 1960's?
