On Friday, the Supreme Court illegally ruled to strike down four state marriage laws. The 5-4 ruling is said to make way for sodomy-based "marriage."
The ruling illegally addressed Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee's lawful declaration that marriage is between a man and a woman.
The Washington Times reports:
The ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges said the 14th Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between people of same-sex, and also recognize same-sex marriages from out of state.
The 14th Amendment, with its equal protection and due process clauses, prohibit the "unjustified infringement of the fundamental right to marry," said the majority opinion written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, joined by Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
"No union is more profound than marriage," Justice Kennedy added.
The stories of the people asking for the right to marry "reveal that they seek not to denigrate marriage but rather to live their lives, or honor their spouses' memory, joined by its bond," Kennedy continued.
Chief Justice John Roberts read his dissent from the bench — a first according to a legal veteran with SCOTUSblog — and said that while gay-rights victors should celebrate the ruling, "do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it."
"This court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us," the chief justice wrote in opposition.
Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito joined Roberts in dissenting.
"Today's decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court," wrote Scalia. "The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact — and the furthest extension one can even imagine — of the Court's claimed power to create 'liberties' that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention."
"This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves," he added.
Scalia is right and points out the tyranny that has become the Supreme Court. However, it is the people who have the power, if only they would exercise it. Governors should immediately and publicly inform the court that they will ignore their ruling as no authority has been given to the court to rule on this matter.
The Fourteenth Amendment is being abused in order to justify all sorts of things like the murder of children, the crime of sodomy and now the definition of marriage, even though there is nothing in the Fourteenth Amendment that grants such authority.
Furthermore, the Supreme Court is out of its legal authority to rule on the matter.
The Constitution is clear on what federal courts can hear. As Publius Huldah has pointed out:
Art. III §2, U.S. Constitution, lists the cases which federal courts are permitted to hear. They may hear only cases:
a) Arising under the Constitution, or the Laws of the United States, or Treaties made under the Authority of the United States 1 ["federal question" jurisdiction];
b) Affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers & Consuls; cases of admiralty & maritime Jurisdiction; or cases in which the U.S. is a Party ["status of the parties" jurisdiction];
c) Between two or more States; between a State & Citizens of another State; between Citizens of different States; between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States;2 or between a State (or Citizens thereof) & foreign States, Citizens or Subjects;3 ["diversity" jurisdiction].
Nothing in this case meets this criteria.
Finally, the communist justices who claimed that the states definition of marriage "unjustified infringement of the fundamental right to marry" is ludicrous on its face. This is nothing more than a straw man argument by these justices. There is no right to break the law. No one is keeping anyone from actually engaging in marriage, since marriage is between a woman and a man. However, when one attempts to engage in sodomy and then drive that to define marriage, they have violated the law from the get go.
God was clear when he created man and woman. He fashioned them in such a way that they "fit together" and the result of that "union" is children. Those engaging in sodomy do not "fit together" nor do they produce children. Instead, we know that in most cases, they bring a curse on themselves. This includes physical and mental sicknesses, as well as spiritual judgment. I have said it before, and I'll say it again, because we have not followed in the footsteps of our forefathers and dealt with sodomy lawfully, we have allowed those who engage in it to descend into more lawlessness to the point where they will now seek to enforce their totalitarianism over the rest of us who have "tolerated" their crimes.
The bottom line is that God has defined marriage from Creation, the states uphold that definition and the federal government has never been given any authority to redefine what is lawful to that which is an abomination before God.
Every Justice that illegally ruled in favor of striking down the laws of these states should be immediately impeached.
On a final note, perhaps it is to push us to the brink of civil war, as my good friend Shea Bernard stated when the Supreme Court struck down DOMA. Maybe this is why they also want us to remove the Confederate Flag, so that we remove all remembrance of what the War of Northern Aggression was all about: Resisting Tyranny.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
