NOM's Maggie Gallagher Reacts to SCOTUS: 'At the Heart of Gay Marriage is An Untruth'

NOM's Maggie Gallagher reacts to the SCOTUS ruling:

Maggie_gallagherJustice Kennedy has invented a new standard of ‘heightened scrutiny’ for laws which are new or unusual—that is to say most new laws: “DOMA’s unusual deviation from the usual tradition of recognizing and accepting state definitions of marriage here operates to deprive same-sex couples of the  benefits and responsibilities that come with the federal recognition of their marriages.”  Kennedy unfairly and illegitimately makes “custom” and ‘tradition” a sufficient reason to overturn the democratic branch of government—a standard which has never been applied when Congress passes new laws that affirm new leftist values.  Kennedy’s decision is not law, it is Justice Kennedy’s moral values written into our Constitution, and interfering with our rights as Americans to pass laws that accord with our values on marriage.”  Kennedy’s decision is the Roe v. Wade of this generation, not this generation’s Brown v. the Board of Educations,” said Gallagher, “Like Roe,  stepped in to disenfranchise millions of voters’ concerns to tilt unfairly the scale of justice controversial moral issue trending in a liberal direction. 

But like Roe the deep questions involved in marriage will not simply go away:  At the heart of the gay marriage argument is an untruth: unions of two men or women are not the same as unions of husband and wife; The law cannot make it so, it can only require us to paint pretty pictures to cover up deep truths embedded in human nature.

  3. Oh Maggie...get over it and get a life!!!

  4. she's just upset that gay couples are better parents than she is, and have actual loving partners. and she doesn't.

    sure, Mrs. Srivastev may be married. But he clearly doesn't love her enough to be seen in public with her. And her pro-family stance is negated by the fact that her son will never, ever, stand with his mother on this issue.

    Sorry Mrs. Srivastev. You lost.

  6. In Maggie's heart there seems to be just hate.

  7. Dear Maggie,

    Based on the American Medical Association's new are diseased.

    Think about that for a moment.

  8. This woman is lying. She is delighted by this decision. Disenfranchising gay people is how she makes her living. If her side ever truly wins she will have to get a real job, so.... Celebrate, Maggie! Drinks all around! We're buying!

  9. That lying sack-full of manure could recognize a half truth a million miles away. Her whole career is based on half truths and outright lies.

  10. oooh...the screeches and howls of anguish from the xtians and the other haters. I wonder if they really have opposable thumbs. It's a jungle out there. Can't wait to hear from the Bryan Fischers, Rush Limp-baughs, John Flemings, the Westboro gang, et al.

  11. I kinda wish people would stop giving her a platform to voice her opinion. Her ideas and comments are out of date, she merely restates general bigotry.

    Let her talk to herself, be by herself, and continue to hate herself.

  12. Feel free to go to her blog and leave her a comment. I only used one curse word...

  13. What would that cow know of human nature? It's never displayed any.

  14. Gotta love how she talks about the democratic branch of government like it's the only branch that matters, while the other two branches that do their duties in the checks-and-balances system that is the U.S. Government apparently aren't worth a damn because they disagree with her. I am in awe at that level of ignorance.

  15. And at the end if the day, Maggir, you still just a fat, old bitter cow of a woman. Sorry, but, that felt good.

    Posted by: Pdxblueyes | Jun 26, 2013 1:44:29 PM

  16. Of course she did not understand the Court's confirmation of each state's right to pass marriage laws as they see fit. If she did, she would shut her huge mouth.

    On the other hand, I love to see her flopping around and gasping like a just-caught fish.

  17. There is no comparison to Roe. Regardless of what I may feel about when a fetus becomes a person, most of those who argue against abortion do so from the stance that it is the taking of a human life (something I disagree with). Marriage Equality has no effect on anyone other than the two entering into the relationship.

  18. Nice attempt at subterfuge Maggs but the obvious similarity to anyone with a minimal understanding of case history is that LGBT equality is Brown vs Board of Education. A minority subjected to legalized discrimination by a majority.

    It's not a morality issue, never has been. Feeble attempts to qualify your bigotry as religious based have been scrutinized and rejected. Civil society has no room for 'faith based' bigotry.

    Kennedy's analysis was brilliant.

  19. Maggie's been basing her fight against same-sex marriage on "custom" and "tradition", as well as Roman Church categories of "natural law", for years. What's good for the goose, Mags, is good for the gander. We're all so sorry you're going to have to get a real job now. Good luck. I hear McDonald's is hiring at a franchise near you.

  20. Now there will be TWICE as many weddings she isn't invited to!

    Someone should send her a gift basket of sour grapes she can eat while watching tapes of "Breaking Bad" alone every Saturday night.

  21. When these talking heads complain about the supreme court overturning congressional legislation, they need to explain why it was ok for them to overturn the voting rights act yesterday.

  22. Here I thought the only thing at the heart of gay marriage was two hearts.

  23. Dear Maggie:

    You'd know all about "Untruths," wouldn't you? You hateful old sow. Go back and wallow in your sham marriage and stop blaming gay people for your lousy life decisions.

  24. Oh Maggie, go on back to your second baby daddy/husband and cry on your bastard son's shoulder. Just get away from the rest of us and shut the f*ck up!
