Will SCOTUS Open Door to Criminalization of Christianity?
(Breitbart) – The question before the U.S. Supreme Court tomorrow inObergefell v. Hodges, dealing with the highly-anticipated same-sex “marriage” challenges, is very simple: Does the U.S. Constitution require same-sex “marriage” in every state in the nation? No one can answer that question in the affirmative with a straight face. The question is not, “Is it permissible?” but “Is itrequired?”
Anyone can read the Constitution and see it does not deal with the issue of same-sex “marriage” in the least and, therefore, the Court should leave it to the states to establish their marriage policy.
Supporters of same-sex “marriage,” including Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, argue that the country is “ready” to embrace same-sex “marriage,” but that has nothing to do with the Constitution. How can you go from saying the country is ready to saying the Constitution requires it?
If the country is ready, let same-sex supporters continue to convince their fellow Americans of their position and pass laws to establish it. And if they want a uniform policy, they can even try a federal same-sex “marriage” amendment. It should be easy for them. They are always saying how the debate is over and they have won already, so let them establish same-sex “marriage” within the framework established by the Constitution...(MORE)
Baltimore Streets Fill with National Guard Troops
15 police injured, 2 dozen arrested in fiery night of rioting
(AP) – National Guardsmen fanned out across the city, police with riot shields blocked streets, and firefighters doused smoldering blazes Tuesday after looting and arson erupted in Baltimore following the funeral of a black man who died in police custody.
It was the first time the National Guard was called in to quell unrest in Baltimore since 1968, when some of the same neighborhoods were convulsed by violence after the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
The rioting started in West Baltimore on Monday afternoon — within a mile of where Freddie Gray, 25, was arrested and placed into a police van earlier this month — and by midnight had spread to East Baltimore and neighborhoods close to downtown and near the baseball stadium.
At least 15 officers were hurt, including six who were hospitalized, police said. There were 144 vehicle fires, 15 structure fires and nearly 200 arrests, the mayor’s office said.
The streets were calm Tuesday morning. Residents came out to sweep up the broken glass and other debris. Firefighters could be seen spraying the burned-out shell of a large building...(MORE)
