Tuesday February 28: The Indian Government declared that it will not challenge the 2009 ruling by Delhi High court decriminalizing homosexuality.
This was informed to the Supreme Court by government lawyers, which is now hearing a case filed against that ruling by religious leaders challenging it.
Homosexuality had been illegal in India since the 1860s, when a British colonial law classified it as “against the order of nature.”
The support of the Indian government for the ruling might tip the scale in favour of the LGBTQ of the supreme court ruling.
We can only hope and keeps our fingers crossed.
I just read about how State Reps. Tom Shaw, Glen Massie and Kim Pearson are pushing to remove the 4 remaining supreme court judges who ruled in favour of same-sex-marriage in Iowa.
“An Impeachment“. Is that what they are calling it? In other words they are saying that ruling in favour of same-sex-marriage was a criminal offence.
I really don’t get the legalities and the political aspect of things. Explain to me…. tomorrow if a judge rules against a murderer, few State Reps. can draft a legislation to remove the judge because the ruling was not to their liking?
This is how the United States Governing body works. Politicians can remove anyone for doing their job if it doesn’t sit well with their agenda. 7 Supreme Court judges came to a decision and they can so easily be removed because few politicians didn’t like their ruling?
If these petty politicians in state level have so much power, why is the President of the country so useless?
Removal of the judges would not reverse the ruling. The ruling will still stand.
So what is the point? You remove these 7. There would be 7 more who would be pro-gay marriage.
If US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit rules in favour of Repealing Prop8 and the entire country has to accept same-sex-marriage, what are they going to do? Hang themselves? If they do, I will make sure there are a few heterophobes picketing their funeral.
The list of “Why I hate America and Americans” just goes on and on and on.
