Supreme Court Commits an Unnatural Act
In France, terrorists left a severed head at the site of an attack on a chemical plant. On Friday, the Supreme Court beheaded its own hostages – the Constitution and Judeo-Christian morality.
A Constitutional right for two men or two women to marry lurking in the 14th Amendment is as absurd as it is for a right to abortion to exist in an imaginary penumbra of a mythical right to privacy in the 1st Amendment.
It’s all a game.
It’s as if the Court’s leftist majority – including Anthony Kennedy and, occasionally, John Roberts – tack the Bill of Rights to a board and throw darts at it to determine the rationale for their latest flight of fancy. “The 3rd. Amendment’s prohibition against quartering troops in homes without the owner’s consent probably means that there’s a constitutional right to assisted suicide.”
In a way, the SCOTUS marriage decision is worse than Roe v. Wade. A thriving right to life movement sprung up in its wake. The ruling wasn’t used to punish those who refused to bake cakes and create floral arrangements for abortion clinics.
The Court’s edict in Obergefell v. Hodges will be used to further the persecution of believers whose conscience will not allow them to go along with the travesty. The “gay marriage” drive has always been about punishing dissidents. That’s why Christian businesses are specifically targeted.
When Justice Samuel Alito asked Obama’s Solicitor General if religious schools which provided married housing would be required to offer the same arrangement for same-sex couples, Donald Verrilli responded “I don’t deny that.” There’s a precedent here in the treatment of schools which supported racial segregation in the wake of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
What’s next? For this movement, there’s always a what’s-next: polygamy, polyandry, abolition of age of consent laws? If a man loves three women, how can government refuse to validate their union? If a 14-year-old girl loves a 44 year-old-man, who are we to say nay? Are they not, in the words of sweet-mystery-of-life Kennedy, writing for the majority, couples that “have the same right… to enjoy intimate association” as natural families?
We’re talking about the deconstruction of marriage. If the government must acquiesce to any union, marriage loses all meaning.
As Justice Antonin Scalia said, the decision is also a direct attack on democracy. While the left and its media auxiliary cite the latest opinion polls, they neglect the only polls that count.
Since 1998, the voters of 31 states have amended their constitutions to ban “same-sex marriage,” in most cases by overwhelming majorities:
Tennessee by 81% (2006)
Ohio by 62% (2004)
Oregon by 57% (2004)
California – Nancy Pelosi’s California! – by 52% (2008)
Virginia by 57% (2006)
Wisconsin by 59% (2006)
Kansas by 70% (2005)
North Carolina – where the Democrats held their last nominating convention – by 61% (2012)
Florida by 62% (2008)
Texas by 76% (2005)
Michigan by 59% (2004)
Harry Reid’s Nevada by 69% (2002)
SCOTUS just nullified tens of millions – perhaps hundreds of millions – of votes, by creating a nonexistent right in the 14th Amendment.
In his dissent, Antonin Scalia said of the majority: “They have discovered in the 14th Amendment a ‘fundamental right’ overlooked by every person alive at the time of ratification (1868), and almost everyone else in the time since.”
In a voice dripping with sarcasm, Scalia wrote: “These justices know that limiting marriage to one man and one woman is contrary to reason; they know that an institution as old as government itself and accepted by every nation in history until 15 years ago (marriage as the union of a man and a woman), cannot possibly be supported by anything other than ignorance or bigotry.”
The Obergefell decision is a milestone of the Sexual Revolution – a cataclysmic upheaval that’s brought falling fertility and marriage rates, spiraling rates of divorce, sexually transmitted disease, cohabitation and fatherless families.
But it’s not the culmination of the revolution. As Antonio Gramsci, the father of Cultural Marxism, wrote in his “Prison Notebooks,” the final stage is the abolition of the family and the church.
Batten down the hatches for the next what’s-next.
