The court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) on Wednesday in a 5-4 decision.
June 26, 2013 – The Day Marriage Died
In two rulings, the Supreme Court gave major victories to same-sex couples committing fornication with the approval and absolution of the Supreme Court. In the first, it overturned a ban on federal benefits for same-sex married couples. In the second, a California case, the court dismissed an appeal. This means same-sex couples will be able to get married in that state.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the Majority Opinion representing the evil five that included Justices Sotomayor, Breyer, Kagan, and Ginsberg who support and legalize what God calls an abomination and the Holy Bible condemns!
Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito were the four dissenting votes supporting Traditional Marriage and God’s Laws that are thousands of years old – Talk about precedent! – Thank God for their dissenting votes!
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in his dissenting opinion that he was dismissing the majority’s reasoning as “legalistic argle-bargle.”

Consider what you read in this section because it is from the far-left extremist source, The Huffington Post…Scalia’s dissent is less a legal argument and more a plea for recognition that there are “good people on all sides.” In it, he repeatedly played the role of victim, complaining that it is unfair that his opposition to gay marriage is no longer considered legitimate.
“It is one thing for a society to elect change; it is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race,” Scalia wrote, accusing the majority of “declaring anyone opposed to same-sex marriage an enemy of human decency … In the majority’s telling, this story is black-and-white: Hate your neighbor or come along with us.”
“To hurl such accusations so casually demeans this institution,” said Scalia, before using his dissent to re-argue the legality of sodomy. Wednesday’s decision was inevitable, he said, when the court sanctioned “homosexual sodomy,” and striking down the Defense of Marriage Act will inevitably lead to fully legal same-sex marriages.
“When the Court declared a constitutional right to homosexual sodomy, we were assured that the case had nothing, nothing at all to do with ‘whether the government must give formal recognition to any relationship that homosexual persons seek to enter,’” he wrote. “Now we are told that DOMA is invalid because it ‘demeans the couple, whose moral and sexual choices the Constitution protects,’ ante, at 23 — with an accompanying citation of Lawrence.
“It takes real cheek for today’s majority to assure us, as it is going out the door, that a constitutional requirement to give formal recognition to same-sex marriage is not at issue here — when what has preceded that assurance is a lecture on how superior the majority’s moral judgment in favor of same-sex marriage is to the Congress’s hateful moral judgment against it. I promise you this: The only thing that will ‘confine’ the Court’s holding is its sense of what it can get away with.”
Along with debating sodomy, Scalia drew a connection to polygamy, noting “the Constitution neither requires nor forbids our society to approve of same-sex marriage, much as it neither requires nor forbids us to approve of no-fault divorce, polygamy, or the consumption of alcohol.”
Scalia argued that the question of same-sex marriage should be left to Congress and the states.
“We might have let the People decide,” he said. “But that the majority will not do. Some will rejoice in today’s decision, and some will despair at it; that is the nature of a controversy that matters so much to so many. But the Court has cheated both sides, robbing the winners of an honest victory, and the losers of the peace that comes from a fair defeat. We owed both of them better. I dissent.”
From The Christian Science Monitor…The US Supreme Court struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act on Wednesday, and in a separate decision by a different majority dismissed an appeal supporting a ballot initiative that banned same-sex marriages in California.
The twin decisions did not address whether there is a fundamental right to same-sex marriage under the US Constitution. But the DOMA decision appears to have laid the legal groundwork for future cases challenging state laws banning same-sex marriages.
As such, the court’s actions represent clear and important victories for gay rights advocates in their fight for equal marital rights for gay men and lesbians. At the same time, the decisions represent a significant setback for those seeking to maintain the traditional definition of marriage as a union between one man and one woman.
President Obama offered his personal congratulations via telephone from Air Force One to Chad Griffin, president of Human Rights Campaign.
“We’re proud of you guys, and we’re proud to have this in California,” he told Mr. Griffin. “And it’s because of your leadership things are heading in the right way. So you should be very proud today.”
House Speaker John Boehner, who intervened to defend DOMA when the Obama administration refused to do so, said he was disappointed in the ruling.
“A robust national debate over marriage will continue in the public square,” he said, “and it is my hope that states will define marriage as the union between one man and one woman.”
Dear Faith2Action Friends, Members, and Partners:
June 26, 2013 – For Immediate Release
“Five justices just trampled on more than seven million California voters and the sacred institution of marriage,” said Janet Porter, president of Faith2Action, who was at the Supreme Court this morning filming with her crew for an upcoming documentary on marriage and the criminalization of Christianity. “Today’s decision points to the need to make the case for marriage more than ever.”
The Supreme Court today announced their decisions regarding two cases on marriage that were heard this spring. One involved California’s Marriage Amendment, approved by voters with Prop. 8 at the polls in 2008. The Court voted 5-4 in Hollingsworth v. Perry that the supporters or proponents of the amendment did not have legal standing to defend it. (They had stepped in when state officials refused to legally defend it). This opens the door for same-sex “marriage” to be legalized in the state of California. A quote from the dissent, written by Justice Kennedy, states that the Court “fails to grasp or accept” that “the right to make law rests in the people and flows to the government, not the other way around. Freedom resides first in the people without need of a grant from government.”
The Supreme Court also declared the federal Defense of Marriage Act, approved by Congress and signed into law in 1996 by President Clinton, to be unconstitutional. The case, U.S. v. Windsor, has been decided by a vote of 5-4 with Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito as the dissenting votes.
Roberts and Scalia rightly argue in dissenting that the Supreme Court did not have proper jurisdiction. In other words, they shouldn’t be making any decision about this law. In his lengthy dissent, Scalia stated, “We have no power to decide this case. And, even if we did, we have no power under the Constitution to invalidate this democratically adopted legislation. The Court’s errors on both points spring forth from the same diseased root: an exalted conception of the role of this institution in America.” -30-
Please help us to make the case for marriage this summer!

THE DAY MARRIAGE WAS MURDERED BY FIVE EVIL DOERS IN BLACK ROBES WHO PROCLAIMED THEMSELVES TO BE HIGHER THAN GOD ALMIGHTY!
* Satan/Lucifer tried this thousands of years ago and look what happened to him. *
[Isaiah 14:12-15] How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!  “For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.  Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”
by Donna Calvin
Calvin’s Commentary: So here’s the bottom line … Approve everything Satan embraces. Sin is condoned by the U.S. Supremes!
It is fitting and proper by U.S. Man-Made Standards to hate every one who believes and proclaims God’s Holy Word and Laws. It is now proper to punish, ridicule, and condemn every one who agrees with God on what is evil because the U.S. Supreme Court ruled over God’s Laws today!
Readers, be warned!
It’s going to get a whole lot worse in the coming future. I know that extreme persecution will be coming to every USA Christian citizen who speaks out in a politically incorrect way one day — and it won’t be far off. You will see it in your lifetime when even your brothers and sisters in Christ deny anyone who speaks out against sodomite fornication, just like Peter betrayed Jesus Christ at his hour of torture and condemnation. The cowards will run and watch you be stripped of all your dignity and wealth for speaking out against sodomy.
Because of how the five evil Supremes worded their opinion on sodomite-gay marriage — they wrote that ANYONE who doesn’t believe in sodomite-gay marriage is a bigot.
Their wording caused Justice Scalia to write his scathing Minority Opinion condemning the 5 evil Majority of Supremes.
So you see what’s coming.
Persecution for true, Bible-believing preaching, teaching Christians.
Will you be among the brave defending God’s Law Word or will you abandon God’s Holy Righteousness to be found among the cowards hiding out, seeking to save your skin and popularity by denying Christ?
Also, recall this: It was Congress who originally passed DOMA and the President of the USA who then was Clinton signed DOMA into law in 1996. Al Gore was the President of the Senate that the Democrats controlled at that time.
Also, remember that at on at least 5 or 6 occasions Obama publicly proclaimed he was against gay marriage and affirmed that marriage was only between one man and one woman. It was only recently Obama flip-flopped on gay sodomite marriage. His flip-flop came about soon after the 2012 election was over and he was elected to his second term.
Get ready, my dear dedicated, Bible-believing Christians, the next time I go off line, it might be because I’m in jail for writing sodomites are going to hell if they don’t repent and should not be allowed to marry — because I will not deny that God has already ruled that marriage is between one man and one woman thousands of years ago.
Because the U.S. government is defying God’s Law and because it is going to just get worse and worse for Truth, does not mean that real Christians can relent.
America is going to be judged by God for its immoral decisions (national sins) like baby-killing (abortion) and condoning what God calls an abomination (sodomy).
Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean real Christians who are willing to speak out the truth of God’s Law Word and preach against sin won’t be punished and submitted to all kinds of mischief by the evildoers in power today.
Justice Scalia wrote that the five evil Majority Supremes purposely wrote their opinions, not based upon U.S. Law or the U.S. Constitution, but upon their own bigoted assessment that all who were/are for DOMA being upheld are bigots who basically hate sodomites. Bottom line, they have declared real Christians all to be hate-filled bigots! This is dangerous! This will surely open up a can of worms for making it impossible for true Christians to preach God’s Word without risking getting arrested, sued, and who knows what else! Merely writing or proclaiming God’s Word against sodomite-gay marriage or speaking against sodomite sin could be a new reason to be tried for committing a hate crime!
Hell is coming to America! Thanks to this ever more-incriminating double standard of justice prejudiced against real Christians here in the USA by five very evil Supreme Court Justices!
Five People, 2 men and 3 women, declaring themselves to be above God in heaven, wearing Black Robes, Justices Kennedy, Sotomayor, Breyer, Kagan, and Ginsberg have today declared you a bigot and God’s Law-Word irrelevant!
There is a new, evil, dangerous Double Standard of Justice!
Based upon today’s malignant decision, US citizens must approve everything Satan embraces and hate everything God says is evil (His Law Word – the Holy Bible).
Alas, I cannot continue with this US Supreme Court decision…because…
God’s Word declares:
[Leviticus 20:23] And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
[Matthew 10:28] And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
[Hosea 4:6] My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
[Proverbs 16:18] Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
[Leviticus 18:22] Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
[Romans 1:28-31] And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
[Isaiah 5:20 KJV] Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
[Acts 5:29] Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
[Matthew 5:28] But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. [Matthew 5:29] And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
