'Mike Huckabee continues to spin colossal lie about marriage equality ruling' & other Thur midday news briefs

Mike Huckabee obviously thinks that lying for his faith is not a sin.

This delusional primary: Huckabee claims 'same-sex marriage is not the law of the land' - Exact words : "Well, let me correct you. Same-sex marriage is not the law of the land. And let me tell you why. Because the Supreme Court cannot make law. And so I know we say it is, but — let’s be very clear. Let’s go back to the fundamentals of the Constitution. Three branches of government equal to each other. Each has checks and balances with each other. No one branch can just do something and say, to heck with the other two branches. It doesn’t work like that." 

It always amazes me how anti-activists like Huckabee will repeat a lie continuously even though we just KNOW that they aren't dumb enough believe the lie to be truth. It more than amazes me. It drives me to distraction. You just wanna shake some people. For the one millionth time - SCOTUS did NOT create a law with regards to marriage equality. It said that the laws barring marriage equality were unconstitutional! That is the job of SCOTUS, i.e. to declare whether or not laws passed meet constitutional muster.  

National Transgender Survey Could Be A Gamechanger - Could be? It WILL be!

 A Look At The Promiscuity 'Culture War' In The Gay Community - A very GOOD discussion to have in the wake of legalized marriage equality, etc. Unfortunately, it's a war in which I have not been able to take part in (not by choice, mind you.)

 Union University leaves council over same-sex marriage - What's that old saying which is pertinent to this situation? Oh yes - "let the door knob hit ya where the good Lord split ya."

 Kim Davis Files Emergency Motion: Issuing Licenses To Gays Would 'Irreparably' Burden Her Conscience - More on the Kentucky clerk Kim Davis. That woman is getting on the tip top of my last nerve.

In regards to the whole, Not the law of the land bit. I wonder how they would feel if that attitude was taken to citizens united, or the striping of the civil rights voting protections. I bet then the supreme court's power would be protected.
