Stand With Arizona
"If this bill has in it something that gives gay couples immigration rights and so forth, it kills the bill. I'm done...I'm off it."
-Marco Rubio, Andrea Tantaros Show. 6/13/2013
That's what 'Gang of 8' amnesty front-man Rubio said when the Senate was debating the amendment, sponsored by Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT) which would grant green cards to foreign partners of gay Americans. Leahy originally introduced the measure during the Senate Judiciary Committee markup of the bill, but he withdrew it under pressure from Republican lawmakers who said it would reduce the chance of the bill passing.
This was the full statement of Rubio regarding the amendment...
"If this bill has in it something that gives gay couples immigration rights and so forth, it kills the bill. I'm done...I'm off it, and I've said that repeatedly. I don't think that's going to happen and it shouldn't happen. This is already a difficult enough issue as it is."
Well things just got even more "difficult", Senator.
This morning's U.S. Supreme Court 5-4 ruling overturning the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in the Windsor v. United States decision, overturned the federal law that defines marriage as a heterosexual union, saying it violates the rights of married gay couples by denying them government benefits.
This ruling applies squarely to the Federal government, and now means that the Leahy Amendment text would be law of the 'Gang of 8' bill is passed in its current form.
Worse, the ruling would no doubt be extended by a friendly Federal judge within days to allow any illegal aliens granted amnesty to bring in same-sex "spouses", or those they claim to be same-sex "spouses" (remember this is a population well-versed in marriage fraud), to the U.S. legally. DREAM-status illegals would be able to do this immediately. Other illegals could begin to do this within 5 years - until a judge says that's unfair too.
So we have one question for Senator Rubio: Now that the Leahy Amendment would be the law of the land under your amnesty bill...are you "done"? Or will this be yet another promise broken?
Tell your Senator how the Supreme Court ruling extends amnesty to gay illegals and their "spouses".
Call them NOW at 202-224-3121, and demand they stand against the ‘Gang of 8′ insanity.
They did not actually “strike down” proposition 8.
They ruled that they had no standing to hear the case.
They also ruled that the appeals court had no standing to hear the case.
And they told the Appeals court to re-rule based on the lack of standing, which SHOULD mean the appeals court will now rule that the district court had no standing to hear the case.
Which SHOULD mean the district case will be thrown out, and there will be no more active ruling against prop 8.
At which point the original plaintiffs could go back and sue again. And with no standing for anybody to defend the case, a default judgement would be entered. And that would continue for each person who sued, but it would only apply to each person who sued. So you would have the law, the law would be valid, but everybody who sued would get released from the law, until someone with standing decided to defend one of the cases.
A bedrock principle of our judicial system is that you can have no judgment if there are not appropriate adversaries.
Of course, we have so little concern for the law these days that who knows what the judges will do.

Barely a year after the vast majority made their thoughts on the matter known at Chick-Fil-A’s across the land, the elites doubled-down and crammed it down our throats.
This is a street war, people.

The other day my supermarket was handing out free Boar's Head hot dogs outside under an umbrella -- and I was starving. The server turned to me and uttered, "SORRY -- LAST ONE!" Pffft.

The nerve of the Supreme Court, trying to usurp the judicial power of Chik-Fil-A!
I found this quite rude:
"Male queers are coprophiliacs. This hallmark of deep perversion has been demonstrated over and over as these deviants smear themselves, rim each other, and seek hookups with other queers in filthy public restrooms where the stench serves as their aphrodisiac. Appropriate sanitation is completely lacking in their makeup."
That poster who R8 quoted seems to have given this lots of thought...
"rim each other"
R8 knows way top much. He's a closet case.

Oh for fuck sake, it involved deep fried food, so of course it was easy for them to find supporters. Had this been some homophobic vegan establishment (I know it's redundant, but go with it), do you think the cattle would've showed up?
And I like you, R7.

Maybe he was just researching for a role.
Maybe Russia or Iran would be more to their liking. They're free to emigrate.
those creepy free republic people are literal trolls. most living in squalor on the public teat, masturbating to photos of sarah palin.
and their numbers are DWINDLING!

Dude, Satan's got ripped abs.

You could have told me every one of those posts was a satire and I'd believe it.

Excuse me? I don't WEAR makeup.
We are Toast! Stick a fork in her she is DONE!! The America I knew growing up has disappeared into the abyss. America has rapidly become a mirror image of Rome’s downfall. God promised in His Word that in the last days a revival would take place...I believe that revival along with God’s wrath(which will bring us to our knees) is just on the horizon. PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY(whatever is left of it) :( and our grandchildren and those christian churches that live by the word of God. They are next on satan’s and the Judicial agenda....MARK IT!! God be merciful!

[quote]Conservatives want homosexuals to enjoy the richness and fullness of life that marriage to someone of the opposite sex gives you. Liberals want the homosexuals money and votes and want them to die childless and soon. Which side cares more about the homosexuals?
Those people make the most screaming, flaming, orgy fest seem SANE! That's some crazy shit!
I actually had to read that twice because I couldn't believe my eyes, R21. Did someone actually type that on FR? I refuse to go over to that site.
That right there is mental illness - no one can tell me it isn't.
Wow. The posts read like a parody of stupid people. The freepers seem to have zero capacity for critical thinking. Zilch. Nada. Zip.
All of those people, living in darkness. It's really quite sad.
Oh well. Fuck 'em. Here's to their loss! May they drown in their own bitter tears.
Seriously, they make DL look like scholars of humanity.
How many of these Free Republic posters are military people with their hands on Americas nuclear triggers???
"Maybe Russia or Iran would be more to their liking. They're free to emigrate."
But this great country was founded as a Christian nation!!
The Free Republic, will be holding diner at Chick-Fil-A tonight!
The average age has to be around 58, right?
Why go to Free Republic? Instead, go to a conservative dominated place that will allow you to post like the link below. Invade and have fun with them. Let them know they're on the losing side of history.
Here is one Freeper's prediction:
"Yep. Boatloads of gay 'married couples' will be tying the knot in blue states and then moving to your town to get in your face for being such a backwards hater."
Yep. Cheboygan, here I come!!!
Gay Marriage will be the end of Country Music.
No, country music will just have to adapt to songs about dudes getting it on in the back of their pickups.
But invading a nation over non-existent WMDs, killing tens of thousands of its citizens, and using deplted uranium weaponry on them is A-OK with these murderous assholes.

Per the Declaration and Constitution and our traditional Judeo-Christian American heritage and way of life.
Those who wish to pursue some other way of life are certainly free to do so. Elsewhere. We will not attempt to interfere with thier God-given unalienable right to dissent. Ain't freedom grand.
God willing, sanity will someday return to America. Probably not until America stops turning its back on God though.
Either way, we will continue the fight.
Thank you all very much.
They are sickos over there at fried repukelick
The one that pisses me off most is "pro-family" - what does that mean?
Pro family is code

We want to fuck your sons aged 21 or over.
Why would we seek equal rights?
You are not our equals.
We will *eat you*.
After we eat your children.
The Country Music crowd won't adapt. They are quite happy to stay in the 20th century, shut out from the rest of the world, actually "Americans shut out the rest of the world" has become Country Musics rallying cry as of late.

21? Where the fuck did that come from?
WHOA!!! That was entertaining and scary.

Marriage Is Dead And The Church Is Next

DOMA is dead.
And, technicalities aside, Prop 8. in California is dead, paving the way for same-sex marriage there.
While many people will try to dissect these opinions and look for legal silver linings based on the narrowness of this or that part of the rulings, make no mistake, as a practical matter marriage as we knew it is over. The dam has burst even if all the water has not yet traversed the breach.
Marriage, as the union of a man and woman for the purposes of raising children and for mutual support as recognized in culture and law, has ceased to exist. The only reason that marriage needs be recognized by law is that previous generations understood its value and wished to confer certain legal and societal privileges to it so as to encourage it. They rightly understood that marriage is the cornerstone of a society.
Advocates have used those legal and societal privileges to beat, twist, and deform the very meaning and purpose of marriage. We now view the purpose of marriage solely as the conferring of these legal and societal privileges, and thus they can be granted to anyone and anything.
While many states have sought to forestall the redefinition of marriage in their states by statute or constitution, today's ruling basically invalidates their efforts and has opened the floodgate to approval of same sex marriage across the nation with no reasonable recourse. Marriage as we knew it is dead.
With the universal legal recognition of same-sex marriage a fait accompli, the next fight will on the Church doorstep. The next battle will be to force Churches, most particularly the Catholic Church, to recognize and conduct same-sex marriage. The refusal to do so will result in a series of escalating legal and financial ramifications.
I am amazed that any of them had time to post on the Free Republic, what with home schooling their 10 kids and praying of a cure to the diabetes.
Compared to that lot, r25, the DL is a bastion of Rhodes Scholars and Nobel Prize winners so bite your tongue.
Witness the effects of home schooling.
Christian Heritage School anyone?
[quote]Marriage Is Dead And The Church Is Next
Good! The pedophiles will have one less place to hide.
In 10 years Rush Limbaugh will announce he was wrong on all of this and expect the Gay community to forgive him.
The question is, will we? Which point is the point of no return on bigotry.
R57, let's hope in ten years we never hear him announce anything.
In 10 years, he'll be tits up.
Fat, junkie slobs like that don't last long. In life or in sex.
HRC will give him an award, R57.
But Rush will still have a future as a Country Music singer.
I just know that my brother-in-law hates the fact that in the eyes of the law my relationship with his brother is every bit as equal as his relationship with his wife.
Have the neanderthals somehow figured out how to hack the DL? It's fubared, again.
I found this comment in R30's link both amusing and intersting:
[quote]I was also curious if any of those stories about Roberts being coerced with NSA info collected on him and many others occupying key positions of power. There is a former NSA type who has gone on record that he saw the dossier that was used to coerce Roberts. Remember Roberts did an inexplicable 180 that really pissed off Scalia, Alito & Thomas.
What is up with DL?
I can't see any threads.
Yep, it's doing that thing again. No threadlist, but you can access specific threads from W&W and your own Thread Watcher.
Presumably this thread at the top of W&W will become the default thread for posting until it gets sorted out. This happened a few weeks ago.
Oh well, time for bed...
This is God's Will!
DL is a moral abomination!
And I want it back now!

That's really what it boils down to with the opponents.
Look for Justice Kennedy to be referred to as " Gay Activist Judge Kennedy" from this point on.
Ralph Reed and Brian Brown were both on Sunday morning talk shows. They're practically salivating over the prospect of raising oodles of money from the free republic crowd.
I occasionally look at the Freeper Madness and was wondering, what's the deal with those "FRee*pa*thons" ? What are they for? They're just trumpeting a new one that just started. What does the owner do with the money raised, has that ever been established?
Supposedly the money goes toward running the site and giving RimJob some sort of living, but nobody's ever done any kind of audit, AFAIK.
