Proposition 8 ruling today

36 posts in this topic

The Supreme Court is supposed to rule on Prop 8 today, and announcement is supposed to come out around 10am from what I heard.

This to me is a rather big issue, while I myself am not gay, I do have a fair amount of friends that are and realize the importance of this.

it's kinda sad and funny that I'm the only person in my family that thinks this way and the rest of my family is starting to realize how far to the left I lean politically because while I normally but out of Facebook politics this is one of the few issues I will actually get vocal about.

The way I see it is if this is the civil rights issue of our day so its a pretty big deal IMO.

My bet is a push down to the lower court in some fashion.  No way this court tackles it, but if they do I think it goes in favor of same sex marriage.  The lawyer that argued on behalf of Prop 8 was horrible and listening to it was as if you were reading a Tinderbox thread on the matter and the evolution of the debate on page 1 of that thread.

“In the majority’s telling, this story is black and white: hate your neighbor or come along with us,” Scalia said. “It is hard to admit that one’s political opponents are not monsters, especially in a struggle like this one, and the challenge in the end proves more than today’s court can handle.”

 

 

Sorry, Scalia, but this is black and white.  This issue goes beyond politics.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/supreme-court/2013/06/26/f0039814-d9ab-11e2-a016-92547bf094cc_story.html

 

 

Also, Prop 8 was bounced down to the lower court's decision apparently.

The report I read of the Prop 8 decision said it was not so much that it was kicked back to the lower court but that the plaintiffs appealing the lower courts decision to strike down Prop 8 had no standing to appeal to the SCOTUS.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
