The steady drumbeat of homosexual Court activism halted in New York and Georgia courts. New York'shighest court ruled Thursday that gay marriage is not constitutionally protected under state law, rejecting arguments by same-sex couples who said that present law violates their constitutional rights.
And then shortly thereafter, the state Supreme Court of Georgia reinstated its own marriage laws, just hours after New York's highest court upheld that state's marriage laws.
Homosexual activists pursuing the redefinition of marriage in America had cases pending in eleven courts throughout the country; California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maryland, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma and Washington State. Nine cases remain pending since the New York and Georgia rulings.
While the world seems to be sleeping, homosexual activist are marching through the courts of this nation and the world, waging war on the traditional understanding of marriage. In Albany the Highest Court in New York heard the arguments of homosexual activists and ruled that their arguments have no constitutional merit.
The Georgia Supreme Court, reversing a lower court judge's ruling, decided unanimously that existing marriage law that was balloted and approved by voters defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman did not violate the state's single- subject rule for ballot measures. Superior Court Judge Constance Russell of Fulton County had ruled that it did.
Seventy-six percent of Georgia voters approved the measure when it was on the ballot in 2004.
The Court of Appeals in a 4-2 decision said New York's marriage law is constitutional and clearly limits marriage to between a man and a woman. Any change in the law should come from the state Legislature, Judge Robert Smith wrote the decision for the majority.
The New York decision said lawmakers have a legitimate interest in protecting children by limiting marriage to heterosexual couples and that the law does not deny homosexual couples any "fundamental right" since same-sex marriages are not "deeply rooted in the nation's history and tradition."
Howard Deanunder pressure from the homosexual wing of the Democrat party for remarks he made on the 700 club hosted by Pat Robinson stating that the Democrat plank states that marriage is between one man and one woman, remarked on the decision made by the Court he said, “Today's decision by the New York Court of Appeals, which relies on outdated and bigoted notions about families, is deeply disappointing…”
The N.Y. Court rejected homosexual activists arguments of due process and equal protection stating that these arguments where misapplied regarding the plantiffs claims.
