Tennessee county commission to vote on anti-gay marriage resolution

NEWPORT, TN (AP) - A Tennessee county commission is scheduled to vote on a symbolic resolution condemning same-sex marriage.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that Hamblen County Commission Chairman Louis "Doe" Jarvis says a committee's 7-1 vote in favor of the resolution Monday pushes it to a commission vote scheduled for Dec. 21.

The resolution also would urge state politicians to push back on the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to legalize same-sex marriage across the country.

Jarvis officiates same-sex marriages and was the only committee member to dissent. He says right-wing group Patriot's Brigade of Tennessee, which suggested the resolution, is "playing on Christianity to further its agenda."

Commissioner Howard Shipley, who voted for the resolution, says he's not very familiar with the group, but that a Patriot's Brigade spokesman had contacted the commissioners.

GOOD for them! This stuff has to be stopped locally and moved up until it's stopped nationally. It is wrong as stated in the Bible and 'their' way of life should never be pushed over on God fearing Christian people.

Perhaps you've never been to Newport in Cocke County. Ever seen the movie Deliverenice? Listen to the words in the song "copperhead road" .
Those old boys would have a ball with a bunch of rug munchers and snake handlers.

Not sure that Deliverance is such a good reference depending on the point you are trying to get across.

Re: TN county commission to vote on anti-gay marriage resolu

I'm not real smart, but the last time I checked the Supreme Court was not authorized by the Constitution to make law. What their decision a few years ago really should have been taken to mean was that if one state recognizes a marriage, then all 50 states have to accept THAT marriage as valid for whatever reason(survivors benefits, divorce, tax purposes). It should not have been taken to require that all 50 states issue and perform same sex marriages, that should have rightly come through the US Congress. Good for Hamblen County, for whatever good it will do them. It's kinda like a City Council or County Commission passing a resolution against crime. It says something that is already known, but in the end, it really does not make any difference.

If I'm not mistaken, Marberry v. Madison changed the scope of the black robed dictators.

It is not Constitutional for the Supreme Court to make laws, but that has been ignored for 200 years now. They actually had the audacity to change the laws in 32 (I think 32) states that had passed that marriage is between one man and one woman.

Of course, then you have Stinkin Lincoln and the 14th Amendment.

We've got our work cut out for us to regain our Liberty.

Re: TN county commission to vote on anti-gay marriage resolu

"MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (WATE) - Hamblen County commissioners voted down a controversial resolution that says marriage is just between a man and a woman Thursday night. Commissioner John Smyth told WATE 6 On Your Side four voted for the measure, five voted against it and four others abstained from voting....."
