Odds are that SCOTUS will decide Obamacare this Friday and same-sex marriage next Monday.— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 22, 2015
One way or the other we're going to get a marriage equality ruling by next Monday at the latest. I'm optimistic that the court is going to settle this matter once and for all and side with equality. SCOTUS has allowed the number of marriage equality states to double in the last 2 year and to undo all of that now, throwing families like mine into limbo and chaos, would be judicial malpractice of the highest order.
But if we lose we simply keep fighting until we reach our goal. It will be a setback but it won't be the end of the world. We've already won the battle of public opinion. Even young conservatives are supportive. It's only a matter of time.
If you're thinking that the other side is going to be just as magnanimous, you'd be wrong. Many are riding the crazy train.
- Jeb Bush is vowing to carry on the fight.
- Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum have signed on to the National Organization for Marriage's insane pledge to obstruct our constitutional process.
- Pat Boone thinks gay rights will kill the Boy Scouts or something.
- James Dobson is threatening revolution.
Rick Scarborough, the antigay Texas pastor who already made headlines with a full-page newspaper ad announcing that he had at least 44,500 followers who pledged to go to jail to defend so-called traditional marriage, is now threatening to set himself on fire to stop marriage equality.
“We’re simply being preemptive and saying, no matter what the cost, we are not going to bow, we are not going to bend, and we will burn,” said Scarborough on a recent National Emergency Coalition conference call hosted by fellow antigay preacher E.W. Jackson.
Pastor Scarborough, The Trammps have a little message for you...
