Just when America believed all current state marriage-bans in the U.S.A. would be lifted and deemed “unconstitutional;” a Louisiana judge ruled the state’s current marriage ban “constitutional” Wednesday, September 3, 2014. U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman delivered the ruling today. He’s also the first judge to support the state’s ban on marriage this past year. This follows a strong year of judges finding marriage-bans “unconstitutional” and the U.S. Supreme Court stomping down the definition of marriage as an institution that should only include couples of the opposite sex back in June 2013. In the case of Jonathan P. Robi Cheaux vs. Louisiana Attorney General, Judge Feldman rules in favor of the Defendant, Caldwell and supports his ruling by stating:
The Court finds that defendants in this passionately charged national issue have the more persuasive argument.
And then emphasizes:
For the reasons that follow plaintfiss motion for summary judgement is DENIED and defendants’ motion for summary judgement is GRANTED.
Further into the ruling, Judge Feldman expresses concern in other states’ marriage bans. He writes:
Perhaps, in the wake of today’s blurry notion of evolving understanding, the result is ordained. Perhaps in a new established point of view, marriage will be reduced to contract law, and, by contract, anyone will be able to claim marriage.
Further more, Judge Feldman reveals who anyone would be:

 

… Must the states permit or recognize marriage between an aunt and niece?
Oh no, it doesn’t stop there:
Aunt and newphew? Brother/brother? Father and child? May minors marry? Must marriage be limited to only two people?
And while we’re still going at it:
What about a transgender spouse? Is such a union same-gender or male-female? All such unions would undeniably be equally committed to love and caring for one another, just like the plaintiffs.
Way to be on the wrong side of history, Louisiana; we can't say we're really surprised. To gain access to this ruling’s document, you may visit here: Louisiana Marriage Case.
