US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy told Harvard students that government officials should resign if a law violates their conscience.

Without mentioning Kim Davis, his message was clear toward dissenters of the marriage opinion.

While this sounds attractive, the foundational question is who sets the laws of our nation?

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “What gives the idea that judges have the final authority to be the arbiters of the law? If that were the case we would have a despotic branch.”

The Constitution is the highest law in our land.
