SCOTUS to Announce If They Will Hear DOMA 11-30-12

Supreme Court nears gay marriage decision over Doma-related cases
Justices will decide next week whether to consider the constitutionality of same-sex marriage

The nine judges of the US Supreme Court will decide next week whether to consider the constitutionality of same-sex marriage – a keenly awaited choice that will have far-reaching implications for thousands of legally married gay couples across the United States.

Up for decision is a set of cases relating to the Defense of Marriage Act (Doma), a 1996 law which states that every time any federal law refers to marriage, it means only that between a man and a woman. Same-sex couples who are legally married in one of nine states or Washington DC are thus denied the benefits or opportunities afforded by marriage to opposite-sex couples.

Five federal courts have ruled that Doma is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court could decide to take on one or more of these cases. The judges will also decide whether to consider an appeal from supporters of California's Proposition 8, a voter-approved amendment to the state constitution which seeks to ban same-sex marriage. Another petition before the justices relates to the state of Arizona, which is seeking to revive a state law that is similar to Doma.

Four Supreme Court justices must agree a case in order for the court to take it. They can take up all of the measures before them, none of them or some. The justices are expected to announce a decision on 30 November.

Douglas Nejaime, an associate professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, said..."If they overturn Doma it just means that those couples will be recognised federally. It wouldn't have any impact on states where they don't recognise same-sex marriage." [full article at link]

This post is an update on: US Appeals Court Strikes Down DOMA; SCOTUS Awaits 10-18-12 "Even though...this case does not specifically address the "states right's" issues where one state would be forced to recognize another state's homosexual pseudo-marriages, 'when' SCOTUS takes this case, as obviously they will, and then slamdunks it, as obviously they will, the critical "state right's" issues that are at stake will afterwards not have even the slightest chance of surviving. [see post]

November 30 looks to be another day of infamy in the history of the United States, and the history of mankind for that matter, as the highest court in the land more than likely will take on the homosexual-pseudo-marriage issue...and then undoubtedly give it an official sanction in a few months from now. Considering how long it has taken to get it to this point and what it has taken to make it happen, even brainwashing an entire generation, there is no way any other outcome can be expected. Alas, it is so.
