Default Tennessee judge denies straight couple divorce, citing gay marriage ruling

Quote:
A Tennessee judge has denied a divorce petition because of the US supreme court decision allowing gay marriage, leaving a couple married against their wishes.

Hamilton County chancellor Jeffrey Atherton denied the couple’s divorce petition last week, claiming the national marriage equality ruling had marred Tennessee’s ability to determine what constitutes divorce.

Atherton’s reasoning to deny the petition was that the supreme court had not clarified “when a marriage is no longer a marriage”, the Times Free Press reported.

“With the US Supreme Court having defined what must be recognized as a marriage, it would appear that Tennessee’s judiciary must now await the decision of the US Supreme Court as to what is not a marriage, or better stated, when a marriage is no longer a marriage,” Atherton wrote in the order.

“The conclusion reached by this Court is that Tennesseans have been deemed by the US Supreme Court to be incompetent to define and address such keystone/central institutions such as marriage, and, thereby, at minimum, contested divorces,” Atherton wrote.

People who are too stupid to understand their job shouldn't be employed in that job.

I agree wholeheartedly. We need to impeach those baboons in the Supreme Court immediately. Their stupid is trickling down to other black-robed dumbasses. I'll start on Obama at another time though, maybe.

I agree. Obama should not be in his current job as he is too stupid to understand it.

Funny, sensible people would say that it takes a special kind of stupid to imagine that marriage refers to people of the same sex. It took top drawer judicial stupidity for that silliness.

Actually, the judge has a point. BY voiding state marriage law, in the case of same sex marriage, the SCOTUS has invalidated all other marriage law at the state level. This is called the law of unintended consequences. Once the judiciary begins legislating from the bench, then they are stuck with the job.

Nothing like giving the middle finger from jail.

Jailed Kentucky clerk says issued marriage licenses to gay couples void | Fox News

I find it funny that libs bash this woman, claiming she should do her job, yet don't give a f*ck city officials in these sanctuary cities turn a blind f*ckin' eye to illegal immigrants and let them stay.

Nice to see libs aren't hypocrites or anything.

The imbecile who keeps calling this "the law of the land" is not making a dent in any of the "sanctuary cities" or "marijuana resorts", I'll bet.
