The Supreme Courtmade history Monday, with a nondecision that effectively moved the country much closer to the day when legal gay marriage is the law of the land.
In a move that surprised but delighted gay marriage activists, the high court declined to take up appeals from five states that ban gay marriage, paving the way for same-sex unions to immediately begin in those states, plus as many as six more states by the end of the year.
The high court’s decision, issued without comment, meant the rulings in the three lower federal appeals circuits striking down bans on gay marriage in Virginia, Utah, Wisconsin, Indiana and Oklahoma are now binding law.
Clerks in those five states issued marriage licenses or conducted marriages on Monday. Clerks in Colorado, one of six other affected states in the federal circuits, also began issuing marriage licenses to same–sexcouples.
Modern daySodomand Gomorrah!!
Gay rights lawyers, eager to expand their victories, began pressing for court action in Kansas, North Carolina and West Virginia, and predicted that, in effect, the Supreme Court’s first day in session may have brought to 30 the number of states with gay marriage.
The justices stopped short of accepting the cases, with the possibility of settling once and for all whether the Constitution guaranteed a right to marriage for gay Americans. Officials in states that still maintain bans on same–sexmarriage vowed to continue the fight.
TheseJusticesare UNGODLY and UNHOLY!!
A minimum of four justices is required for the Supreme Court to grant the so-called writ of certiorari to hear the case. Monday’s action means that at least one of the four members of the high court’s more conservative bloc voted not to put the cases on the court’s current docket.
“It’s an incredible day; it’s historic, and I am ecstatic,” Jon Davidson, legal director at Lambda Legal, told a media briefing Monday.
Virginia plaintiff Carol Schall said that reading a Twitter message Monday reading “Cert denied, marriage legal” left her in a “puddle of tears.”
“Our long journey has ended in such joy and such happiness,” said Ms. Schall, who sued for the right to have her California marriage to Mary Townley recognized in Virginia.
Stunned traditional values groups expressed “deep disappointment” that the Supreme Court didn’t weigh in on the landmark social issue and instead let stand “rogue” rulings by judges who cannot be held accountable by the public. The high court in June 2013 had appeared to signal it was willing to let the individual states decide at their own pace whether and when to sanction gay marriage.
“The entire idea that marriage can be redefined from the bench is illegitimate. Marriage is the union of one man and one woman; it has been this throughout the history of civilization and will remain this no matter what unelected judges say,” said Brian S. Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM).
NOM and the Family Research Council called for Congress to pass laws to protect states’ rights to define marriage or pass a constitutional amendment defining marriage in the traditional sense.
“This is an unfortunate setback for sound constitutional self-government and a setback for a healthy marriage culture,” said Ryan T. Anderson, Heritage Foundation fellow in religion and free society. “Declining to review these cases does not speak one way or the other to the merits of the cases,” he said. “But it does leave in place bad rulings from the lower courts.”
Theodore B. Olson, co-counsel for the Virginia gay couple and part of the legal team for American Foundation for Equal Rights, savored the day’s events as “extraordinarily exciting.”
