Will Donald Trump Overturn Gay Marriage? – Here’s The Answer!

So Donald Trump is President. I have to say, I never saw it coming. I thought he would do better than people expected, but that he wouldn’t get enough of the swing states to win. Well, that was me completely wrong. Maybe I need to stick to writing adult content, rather than political punditry?

Donald Trump

What has been very clear ever since his election is the state of fear that exists in some minority communities over whether Donald Trump will come after them. One of those groups is the LGBT community. Their main worry is whether Trump will knock down the 2015 Supreme Court ruling that legalised gay marriage all over the United States.

Questionable Views

On the face of it, it looks like they may have cause to worry. Trump’s running mate Mike Pence (the soon to be new Vice President) has opposed same sex marriage all the way through his career. He has even supported ‘conversion therapy which claims to cure people of the illness of homosexuality.

Pence also signed a religious freedom law which allows people to refuse service to gay couples. Not very good at all eh?

Now as anyone who has kept up to date will know, Trump gets the chance to appoint a Supreme Court judge, due to one of the old ones dying. One suspects he will bring in a really right wing judge who will be in his own image. This is important because if you get get a 5-4 in line with your thinking, the laws are likely to follow suit. A more liberal judge would attack the death penalty, a right wing one would support the right to carry guns (simplistic but you get my point)

Well, thankfully, his latest comments will give some hope to those wanting to see the gay marriage legislation stay in place. Trump has stated that he has no plans to change this particular law.

“It’s irrelevant,” he said, “Because it was already settled. It’s law. It was settled in the supreme court. I mean it’s done.”

Other Priorities

Well, if we have learned anything, it is not to trust anything that Donald Trump says, so I wouldn’t breath easily just yet. However, the fact he goes on to say he intends to have abortion struck down, and the right to carry guns like you are in the wild west strengthened, it does make you think his priorities are elsewhere. These things aren’t great for many either, let me add.

This is a stressful time for a lot of people, and to them, I will send my solidarity. Still, I will make it my duty to inform you all of what is really happening. When people are scared, the last thing they need is people scaremongering, and to be fair, there is a lot of that happening at the moment..

When it comes to the future, we can but hope. And at least these words offer some encouragement.

  1. Hello Chaps!

    All I can say it that Religion and the law should never be in the same boat.
    Religion is a choice, while the law isn’t.
    And to not being religious, I wouldn’t want religion to tell me what to do or how to live my life.

  2. I really don’t understand why these people are so focus on banning gay marriage when this has nothing to do with them.
    If you don’t like it and you think it goes against your views, turn the fuck round and look the other way.
    If people wish to marry, them let them, they are not harming anybody, at all.
