The last couple of years, we have seen one judge after another cave in to the demands and lawsuits of gay activists and rule against traditional marriage. Homosexuals, in one court case after another, are given not equal, but privileged rights over those given to the rest of the population.
In Nevada, a pair of lesbians filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a state constitutional amendment that defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman. Their lawsuit claimed that the marriage amendment was discriminatory against homosexuals who wanted to marry the same sex.
The lawsuit was heard by Judge Robert C. Jones, Chief Judge of the US District Court for the District of Nevada. Judge Jones, a Las Vegas native, was appointed to the court in 2003 by President George W. Bush.
Judge Jones’ decision was rendered just a few days after hearing arguments, which surprised many involved, since most decisions take weeks and even months. Yet, Jones managed to put together a 41 page decision in which he ruled against the lesbian couple’s claim of discrimination. In denying their claim, Jones explained that the lesbians were not being discriminated against by the amendment, but they were just required to abide by the same laws and criteria as everyone else.
