U.S. Supreme Court justice says marriage has been between man and woman for ‘millennia-plus time’

BigayalhitlerWASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy joined conservative colleagues in asking skeptical questions Tuesday as the U.S. high court heard historic arguments over the right of gay and lesbian couples to marry.

Kennedy, whose vote is seen as pivotal on the nine-member panel, said marriage has been understood as one man and one woman for “millennia-plus time.” He said same-sex marriage has been debated in earnest for only about 10 years, and he wondered aloud whether scholars and the public need more time.

“It’s very difficult for the court to say ‘We know better,’” Kennedy told Mary Bonauto, a lawyer representing same-sex couples.

    Same-sex couple should be only entitled to a civil union.

      That had that in California for years and it wasn’t good enough for them.

      • Robert McCall

        Nothing will ever be good enough for them. With every victory they whine, cry, threaten, stomp their feet to, they are simply mapping out the directions to the next outcry of faux rage, oppression, etc that will see them pushing to dismantle more of our Christian values and old school moral way of life.

        A line needs to be drawn and they need to be told that if they cross it they get a beat-down, metaphorically and actually!

    • I would not begrudge them that, attacking the institution of marriage, religious freedom etc has won them no friends.

    • Clausewitz

      Yep, the same rights and responsibilities as we evil heterosexuals. Just don’t call it marriage. Proper Catholics, not the Michael Coren faux kind, know that the marriage ceremony is one of their sacraments. Why does the legal system in Canada and the US allow gays to appropriate our culture. Don’t the progressives usually frown upon this action?

    He may be covering his ass for when he votes in favour of SSM.

      That is exactly what it is. The SCOTUS is second only in manipulative corruption to the SCOC.

      These assholes don’t care a bit for the law as it exists. It’s what they can turn the law into that is what truly interests them. This is true for any lawyer but for top dog lawyers of the Social Engineering Courts of the US and Canada it is particularly true.

      There is no longer any reason to trust or respect these people.

    Total head fake from Kennedy.

      It’s getting old.

  • Beware of rainbow fag riots, if the answer is “no”.
