McConnell-recommended Judge Strikes Down Ky's Anti-Gay-Marriage Law

Let's not overreact here, people; this is no reason to vote for Mitchie-poo in November. Although I'm not holding my breath waiting for Alison Lundergan Grimes joins Rep. John Yarmuth in praising the ruling.

Steve Benen at Maddowblog:

Nearly a decade ago, Kentucky voters approved a ban on marriage equality that included a specific and important provision: if a same-sex couple gets legally married in another state and then moves to Kentucky, the Bluegrass State will not recognize that marriage.
Today, a federal court ruled that the law is unconstitutional.
In a ruling that could open the door to gay marriage in Kentucky, a federal judge on Wednesday struck down Kentucky’s ban on recognizing valid same-sex marriages performed in other states, saying it violates the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under the law.
U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II joined nine other federal and state courts in invalidating such bans.
In his ruling, Heyburn concluded, “[I]t is clear that Kentucky’s laws treat gay and lesbian persons differently in a way that demeans them.”
Note, Heyburn was nominated for the federal bench by Bush/Quayle. He’s a former aide to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who recommended Heyburn for the judiciary.
I've met one of the couples who filed this lawsuit. They have been together two decades, since being high-school sweethearts. Anybody who could deny them equal rights based on the fears of some Bronze-Age sheepherder is a vicious piece of shit.

Universal GAYety is Coming !

Gays are found throughout history. For the first time ever - finally - they're almost worldwide! Wow!
This global gaydom is even foretold in the Bible - predicted by Jesus (see "days of Lot" in Luke 17 and compare with Genesis 19).
And the Hebrew prophet Zechariah (14th chapter) says that during the same gay "days" ALL nations will come against Israel and fulfill the "days of Noah" at the same time (see Luke 17 again) - a short time of anti-Jewish genocide found in Zechariah 13:8 when two-thirds of all Jews will die.
In other words, when "gay days" have become universal, all hell will break loose!
Shockingly, the same "days" will lead to and trigger the "end of days" - and when they begin, human government will quickly wind down in just a few short years. For the first time in history there won't be enough time for anyone to expect to live long enough to be able to attend college, have kids and grand-kids, save for and enjoy retirement, etc.
One final thought. The more we see gays "coming out," the sooner Jesus will be "coming down"!
