A group of more than 60 legal scholars released a statement concerning the Supreme Court’s Obergefell marriage decision.
The statement urges office holders not “[t]o treat as ‘settled’ and ‘the law of the land’ the decision of five Supreme Court justices who, by their own admission, can find no warrant for their ruling in the text, logic, structure, or original understanding of the Constitution.”
Among the signers is Princeton Professor Robert George who said, “We stand with James Madison and Abraham Lincoln in recognizing that the Constitution is not whatever a majority of Supreme Court justices say it is…We remind all officeholders …that they are pledged to uphold the Constitution…not the will of five members of the Supreme Court.”
