Brewer is not happy about marriage equality coming to her state. the anti-gay mega monster had this to say:
“In 2008, Arizona voters approved a state constitutional amendment to define marriage as a union of one man and one woman. Now, with their rulings, the federal courts have again thwarted the will of the people and further eroded the authority of states to regulate and uphold our laws.
“It is not only disappointing, but also deeply troubling, that unelected federal judges can dictate the laws of individual states, create rights based on their personal policy preferences and supplant the will of the people in an area traditionally left to the states for more than two hundred years.
“As Justice Scalia opined, such action is tantamount to ‘an ssertion of judicial supremacy over the people’ and is an image of the judiciary ‘that would have be en unrecognizable to those who wrote and ratified our national charter.’ Simply put, courts should not be in the business of making and changing laws based on their personal agendas.
“It is not the role of the judiciary to determine that same-sex marriages should be allowed. Historically and traditionally, that power belongs to the states, and to the people. If society wants to recognize same-sex marriage or civil unions, that decision should be made through our elected representatives or at the ballot – not the courts.” – Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, via press release.
simply put- FUCK OFF…..
AG Tom Horned announcet that the fight is “over”. He will not appeal today’s ruling!
“It’s over.” Tom Horne, the Republican Attorney General of Arizona, says that he will not appeal today’s federal court ruling striking down his state’s marriage ban.
That sound you hear is more shit sharts running down Brian Browns legs….

the lady is confused – as are many – gay relationships have always been an issue of national concern – this is not about heterosexual marriage — this is about gay relationships – as early as the 1940s we were made a national issue — in the 1950s Eisenhower declared gay couples and gay single men to be a grave potential national threat — then in the 1990s the states and federal government all rushed to make sure there were federal laws about gay couples – in 2003 the issue of gay couples was a national issue …
gayness has always been a federal issue -we’re so fucking special to you heteros is astonishing …
So, there’s no 200 years of gay history or tradition to discuss … the issue of marriage in modern terms first surfaced in Hawaii – in 1993 — and every single last state went to town under federal concepts of federalism to make sure the federal issue of gayness stayed federal —
You know — this requires a blog post .. tomorrow ..
