ATTORNEY GENERAL: DECISION “UPHOLDS RULE OF LAW”

By FITSNEWS || The S.C. Supreme Court has waded into the ongoing legal debate over gay marriage in the Palmetto State – further complicating an already convoluted progression of federal rulings.

Specifically, the state’s highest court has ruled that Palmetto judges may not accept marriage licenses until a South Carolina case currently pending before the U.S. Fourth Circuit court of appeals is resolved.

“Today’s action by the state Supreme Court upholds the rule of law in South Carolina,” S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson said in a statement. “Based on the Court’s decision, I will continue to fulfill my oath as chief legal officer to defend the laws and the Constitution of South Carolina until this issue is resolved by the federal courts.”

South Carolina’s gay marriage ban was passed in 2006 with the support of 78 percent of the electorate – and recent polls show a slight majority of the state’s registered voters continue to oppose same sex marriages.

The latest legal drama over the issue began in late July when the fourth circuit court of appeals – based in Richmond, Virginia – ruled that state’s gay marriage ban unconstitutional.  This week, the U.S. Supreme Court – without comment – refused to hear such cases, effectively upholding the lower court ruling.

A lesbian couple who were married in Washington, D.C. challenged the Palmetto State’s ban earlier this year.  That case – Bradacs v. Haley  – was stayed by district judge Michelle Childs in April pending the outcome of the Virginia case, Bostic v. Rainey .

At this point it’s a mere formality that South Carolina’s gay marriage ban will be struck down by the appeals court … which will be the ruling of record given the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to intervene.

This website’s oft-stated view on this issue is abundantly clear: No government – local, state or federal – should have the ability to ban (or compel) marriage, gay or straight.  That’s because marriage isn’t a government institution, it’s a religious one – meaning the question should be left to individual congregations.

As for civil unions, the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment compels government to acknowledge both homosexual and heterosexual unions.

Quite the contrary, as the world is more enlightened, more people will feel that they can be comfortable being who they really are and not having to hide in a closet. Eventually, bullying will cease, and bullies will be ostracized. Your way will go the way of the dodo bird.

bsmith5401 October 9, 2014 at 4:38 pm

America is a Republic whose government is based on the rule of law, not majority rule. The Attorney General has upheld the law. Judges have a responsibility to uphold the law. There is no right to marriage in the US or SC Constitutions, so this issue should be one that is left to the state legislatures to decide. SC’s law is clear that same-sex marriage is illegal. Opinionated jurisprudence is an oxymoron, yet judges seem to think they are at liberty to rule according to their own ideology, regardless if it supports codified law or not.

Tom October 9, 2014 at 6:07 pm

Well you obviously know nothing about Constitutional law, and don’t even understand the debate.

bsmith5401 October 9, 2014 at 8:18 pm

Oh. Obviously. I’m glad to see you stepped up to the plate to debate the issue rather than offer empty criticism. Coward.

a face in the crowd October 9, 2014 at 8:40 pm

One reason courts exist is to protect a minority from the majority. And if you want to debate numbers, take a look around the United States. The people have spoken as well. As long as South Carolina continues as part of the United States (and as long as it receives tremendous amounts of federal aid) it is bound to observe the laws of the land.

Route 666 October 10, 2014 at 7:19 am

So basically, courts exists to protect minority rule? Well duh, tell something that we right wingers don’t already know. Anyway, so if the numbers are in your favor, than surely you’d not mind if we had a national referendum on gay marriage, abortion, affirmative action, etc., etc? Oh I’m sorry, that’s “one person-one vote” again and that is taboo. My advice?… enjoy your little tyrannical government before the bullets start flying. Tyrannical governments always fail.

a face in the crowd October 10, 2014 at 12:15 pm

The bullets have already flown, and the South was put down.

Jacob October 9, 2014 at 10:35 pm

Loving v. Virginia (1967); Skinner v. Oklahoma (1942): Marriage is one of the “basic civil rights of man.” Take a look at Meyer v. Nebraska (1923) as well.

Zablocki v. Redhail (1978) declared that marriage is a “fundamental right.” Even Scalia endorsed that view in 1987, in Turner v. Safley.

So when you speak about the Republic, the rule of law and the US Constitution, you are wrong. SC’s law is clear that same-sex marriage is illegal, but SC’s law is inferior to US law under the Constitution that created the Republic you mentioned. There is, in fact, an entire Clause of the document dedicated to that.

South Carolina’s prohibition will officially be gone within a few weeks.

Sexual preference is NOT a Civil Right you [email protected]$$ Liberal Cliche. You are protected as an American, equally. But to give you special dispensation as a gay American, is extra protection under the law, and un-Constitutional.

If you are protected for being Gay, then Christian churches would be FORCED to perform Gay marriages, and they should be, if it is a civil right…but homosexuality is NOT a protected civil right. Stopping you from being gay would violate your rights, but NO ONE is doing that. No one is stopping gays from marrying either. It’s just not sanctioned by the government. And it should not be redefined to be.

You ignorant F*#ks go around reciting leftwing talking points, and and have NO F*#king idea what you are talking about.

“If you are protected for being Gay, then Christian churches would be FORCED to perform Gay marriages, and they should be, if it is a civil right…but homosexuality is NOT a protected civil right.”

You’re right, it isn’t. However, equal (not superior) treatment under the law is and should be protected. Why should gay couples who work just as hard as anyone else be denied the benefits of marriage, to include being noted as next-of-kin if a spouse is sick or dying, Social Security, etc? Churches have the right to refuse to marry straight people if they don’t want to, such as if one party has been divorced and they have a big hang up about that. They would likewise retain the right to refuse to marry gay couples if they so desired, as it should be.

SC Political Digest October 10, 2014 at 6:29 am

Because they do not meet the definition of marriage. If you marry your pet, and you have a job, should the pet get your SSI after you die?

Just because the gay lobby has brainwashed the [email protected]$$#$ into believing they should be able to ride the gravy train, is not a reason to redefine marriage in America.

You elect Democrats, who have people STARVING.

Money Spent UPHOLDING the Constitution, is better for poor people. Though liberals have no ability to understand REAL equality. You only want to feed selfish pop-culture whims.

How much money has the Gay lobby, and Democrat donors, spent going to courts to force the redefining of marriage to include a leftwing special interest group???…Why have you not spent that money on the poor?

When you have so bankrupted the country, and added to the needy, where we governed over abundance, your wasting money is egregious. Ours is being used justly. And we have been rewarded for our obedience to God. And we will always be. It’s why America is GREAT enough to tolerate hateful bigots, and takers like you.

We can’t afford the bennies we’re giving out now, thanks to Obama’s HORRIBLE management of the economy.

Aside from that: Gays can get married all the want. There are some “Churches” that will do the ceremony. Except most homosexuals I know got into the lifestyle (especially the men) because they know they can get sex, any time, with any other male in the gay community….The LAST thing they want is a FAITHFUL relationship..Marriage = Buzz Kill… Duh!!!

This is ALL a government handout money grab for a leftwing political special interest group, when we can LEAST afford it (thanks to their president.)

So the the answer is not just NO…It’s H#!! No..now STFU, and go home.

This reminds me of George Wallace standing in the schoolhouse door.

An exercise in futility.

Not a bad move though for a guy running for Governor in 2018.

I remember in a former life South Carolina taking the same stance about some other issue, oh yeah, civil rights, equal education and slavery. Oh well, once stuck in the mud – stay stuck in the mud.

Wilson IS just follwong SC law, and he’s being ravaged for it. See SCPSD, to get the REAL story the media – and FITS – is trying to hide from you.

The state is covered with closeted gay men and women. And openly gay too. Most people under 30 don’t give a hoot about your orientation. Most gay people in the south are too afraid to be themselves. In the past, most gay people would move to another state to live bec. SC is so narrow-minded. Gays are good for the economy, they pay taxes like everyone, they vote, they buy from the same stores you do, and are equal to heterosexuals in every respect.
Gays will be able to marry in SC and I for one applaud that. Like Martin Luther King said, look to the content of a person’s character. Look at the straight men who beat their wives. Here in the Upstate a white guy killed all 5 of his kids. So don’t tell me being gay is the worse thing in the world.

The brilliant Alan Wilson will continue to waste taxpayer dollars. He is a fartblossom.

After a few thousand years of one group telling another how to live their lives, one would think we should have figured out that our individual lives are not the concern of others. Humans mate. Some folks are homosexual, maybe one or few in your family past or present. So what. We could all benefit from the practice of privacy. Stop inviting ridicule and scorn and let’s all mind our own business.
