U.S. Supreme Court will not hear Utah’s same-sex marriage appeal (at least not yet)

SALT LAKE CITY – The U.S. Supreme Court has released a list of some of the cases it will hear this term and Utah’s same-sex marriage case is not on it.

However, that doesn’t mean the case won’t be considered.

Utah’s appeal of Amendment 3 is among several same-sex marriage cases across the nation before the nation’s top court. The U.S. Supreme Court justices met behind closed doors on Monday to consider the cases it will hear, including Utah’s appeal of Amendment 3.

The court could re-list the cases for consideration next week or deny them.

Last year, a federal judge ruled that Amendment 3 — which defines marriage as between a man and a woman and does not recognize anything else — is unconstitutional. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld that decision, ruling that the same-sex marriage ban violated gay and lesbian couples’ rights under the Fourteenth Amendment.

    Meantime fathers will take their sons to their soccer games and grill burgers for their wives and children. There are so many benefits that come with a traditional marriage.

    The good news is that the Utah Pride Center has opened up a counseling and wellness clinic to help distressed LGBT youth and adults work through emotional issues. I can understand why the clinic might be needed.

      Why are you such a homophobe Bob? Usually people that are so afraid of it usually have something they need to hide.

        I don’t have an escargot phobia Jenny but I just let it pass by when I see it on the menu. Likewise I have no phobias about AIDS or the people who carry it. I assume that you and Trollasaurus have a lot in common.

      Yes, Bob, your hHeterophobic rants led us to the same conclusion. That’s why I suggested that you get help from the Utah Pride Cente counseling and wellness clinic.

    Bob must receive a lot of help from the Utah Pride Center since he suggests their clinics to everyone. I’m happy to see you are getting the help you need. Great for the Pride Center as well. I wish them luck. Hopefully it will change your attitude and life for the better. Prayers!
