Fanatic Friday: And I Feel Fine edition

Big whoop.  Everyone has known SCOTUS was prepared to Roe v Wade marriage.  Providentially there is a Synod on the Family coming up..... *cough*

On what basis can a government define or witness marriage anyway?  Perhaps the appropriate response is to get the gov't out of the marriage business all together.


Also: Bon Jovi in Milwaukee

Update from a friend:
One of the best quotes of the day. Justice Scalia, at footnote 22, ripping into Justice Kennedy comparing his legal reasoning to a fortune cookie:

"If, even as the price to be paid for a fifth vote, I ever joined an opinion for the Court that began: 'The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity," I would hide my head in a bag. The Supreme Court of the United States has descended from the disciplined legal reasoning of John Marshall and Joseph Story to the mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie."

  1. How was Chief Justice Roberts a disappointment from your perspective? Was he not one of the dissenting votes?

  2. Apologies, I mistook him for Kennedy with the previous day's ruling on Obamacare. I'll update appropriately once I have a chance
