I support gay marriage.. but I support religious freedom more. And I’m an atheist.

This law is wrong. Those that backed it were wrong to do so.

It’s rare to see gay rights advocates fuck up on this scale of magnitude, they’ve had a near flawless PR campaign thus far.

This law undermines their credibility and justifies virtually every accusation made against them.

What were they thinking?

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Idaho’s and Nevada’s bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional. 

Writing for the court, U.S. Circuit Judge Reinhardt says judges found the law were unconstitutional by subjecting them to heightened scrutiny.

“We hold that the Idaho and Nevada laws at issue violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment because they deny lesbians and gays who wish to marry persons of the same sex a right they afford to individuals who wish to marry persons of the opposite sex, and do not satisfy the heightened scrutiny standard we adopted in SmithKline,” Reinhardt writes.

The Ninth Circuit decision affirms a lower district court ruling against Idaho’s ban on same-sex marriage, but it also reverses a court rulings affirming the ban on same-sex marriage in Nevada that was handed down in 2012 before the Supreme Court decision against the Defense of Marriage Act.

THIS WEEK, THOUGH.
