10th Circuit Allows Gay Marriages to Continue in Utah View Count: 203

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has declined to grant Utah’s request for an emergency stay on the order of Judge Robert J. Shelby, who struck down Utah’s same-sex marriage ban as unconstitutional last week. Within hours of Shelby handing down his judgment the state moved in appeal, but on Sunday, the appeal was rejected because it was not in proper form – those who prepared the initial appeal did it in a hurry and made mistakes.

On Monday the state attorneys filed a revised and proper petition for the grant of a stay pending appeal, but the 10th Circuit refused to grant the request. This is the fourth time the state’s moves to preserve the gay marriage ban has faced defeat in the courts. The only course open to Utah at this point would be to go to the U.S. Supreme Court, where Justice Sonya Sotomayor could refer the matter to the entire court. Unlike the first two denials on applications of stay, this Tuesday, the 10th Circuit did not give the state officials a further chance to file an amended request.

In its two-page order denying the stay, the 10th Circuit observed, “Having considered the district court’s decision and the parties’ arguments concerning the stay factors, we conclude that a stay is not warranted. Accordingly, we Defendants-Appellants’ emergency motions for a stay pending appeal and for a temporary stay. In addition, we direct expedited consideration of this appeal.” While the state attorney general’s office is preparing the Supreme Court motion, it has issued an advisory opinion to county clerks telling them they can be held in contempt of court if they refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Governor Herbert’s chief of staff sent a message to state agencies telling them that “where no conflicting laws exist you should conduct business in compliance with the federal judge’s ruling until such time that the current district court decision is addressed by the 10th Circuit Court.”

    Homosexual Wedding Float

    homosexual wedding float is like a victory dance, but not to what just appears
    on the surface – homosexual marriage. It actually celebrates something far more
    profound, and that is the defeat of Christian, democracy (Rule by the Christian
    majority) and its replacement by God hating, Bolshevism (Rule by an
    anti-Christian minority). They might as well put a big finger on the back of
    that float with the caption: “F….you, Christians !!!”

    is the culmination of a Fabian, (Incremental) Marxist, revolution which over
    the years has taken over the Federal government and most State and local
    governments. The laws of the land have become hostile to Christian morals,
    values, beliefs, conscience, holydays, expressions in public, the Christian
    Bible and even Christianity’s God. But they have become pro-everything that is
    abhorrent to Christians, such as atheism, pornography, sex perversion of all
    kinds, killing babies, euthanasia and a government that rules by executive
    order and judicial oligarchy. The remarkable thing is that all of these changes
    in government have taken place while Christians are still the Majority in the

    this revolution appears to be a defeat for Christianity, it actually confirms
    the Christian Bible as being The Book of Prophetic Truth. The Bible prophesies
    that Christianity would cover the whole world one day and then a prominent
    anti-Christ would arise and war against it. And here we are! Then Jesus would
    intervene, rid the world of his opponents and turn the world into a paradise
    for meek and humble people.

    the first part of this prophesy is being fulfilled before our very eyes, we can
    be sure that the last part will be fulfilled too. Because there isn’t much time left for this
    old world Christians must zealously and boldly share their faith in Jesus with everyone
    around them and share the hope that God’s Kingdom will soon make the whole
    world new.
