Marriage Lives!

Traditional marriage has survived an attack by anti-marriage foes and liberal judges here in Georgia and surprisingly in New York state.

Supreme Courts in each state upheld the definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. In Georgia despite the law being thrown out over a "technicality", the Supreme Court stood by the heartfelt desires of the majority of Georgians --76% to be exact-- which was approved in a 2004 referendum. The ruling was unanimous. Independent Conservative has details of the ruling.

According to MSNBC report, the New York court, in a 4-2 ruling stated, "For the welfare of children, it is more important to promote stability, and to avoid instability, in opposite-sex than in same-sex relationships," the majority said. And it ruled that a state legislature could also rationally conclude that "it is better, other things being equal, for children to grow up with both a mother and a father."
In the New York ruling, another blow came as the court's most liberal member, African American Judge George B. Smith, flatly rejected comparisons of race and sexual preference.

With that statement, the court slammed the door in the face of ludicrous and far fetched arguments by gay activists. Despite the rulings, traditional advocates are bracing for more attacks in Washington state, Maryland, New Jersey, Iowa, Oklahoma, California, Nebraska, and Connecticut.
