In a 5-4 decision handed down this morning, the Supreme Court, with Justice Anthony Kennedy providing the swing vote, issued a ruling that the Constitution guarantees a right to homosexual “marriage” anywhere in the United States.
The majority — which included two obviously compromised justices in the persons of Ginsburg and Kagan, who refused to recuse themselves despite their previous gay rights activism — decided that refusing to “marry” two men or two women somehow denies their 14th Amendment right to due process.
The states, which long ago abandoned any semblance of a moral argument against homosexual “marriage,” failed to provide a convincing reason against the practice, the majority said.
Justice John Roberts, in his dissent, wrote, “If you are among the many Americans — of whatever sexual orientation — who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today’s decision. But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.”
Justice Antonin Scalia blasted the decision, saying the court now poses a “threat to American democracy” by making up laws.
President Obama called it “a big step in our march toward equality.”
You know what I think? I think the camel’s back is now broken.
(And yes, feel free to take that as a “Brokeback Mountain” reference.)
I really don’t see how America, as it was intended by the Founding Fathers, survives this. We have not only a president but a Supreme Court that are making their own laws based on popularity polls.
The Constitution’s chances of survival are slim to none.
For my part, I don’t think anything is left to be done as far as the legality of homosexual “marriage,” but it is still immoral, depraved, dangerous and wrong.
If pressed, I will not accept it or endorse it in any way. I will abide by my beliefs, and I hope other Bible believers, Jewish or Christian, will do likewise.
So, what are we prepared to do?
