Prop 8: Contemptuous Judge Overturns Will Of Both God And The People

Here’s the latest story of judicial abuse:

SAN FRANCISCO – A federal judge overturned California’s same-sex marriage ban Wednesday in a landmark case that could eventually land before the U.S. Supreme Court to decide if gays have a constitutional right to marry in America.

Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker made his ruling in a lawsuit filed by two gay couples who claimed the voter-approved ban violated their civil rights. Gay couples waving rainbow and American flags outside the courthouse cheered, hugged and kissed as word of the ruling spread.

Despite the favorable ruling for same-sex couples, gay marriage will not be allowed to resume. That’s because the judge said he wants to decide whether his order should be suspended while the proponents pursue their appeal in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The judge ordered both sides to submit written arguments by Aug. 6 on the issue.

Supporters argued the ban was necessary to safeguard the traditional understanding of marriage and to encourage responsible childbearing.

California voters passed the ban as Proposition 8 in November 2008, five months after the state Supreme Court legalized gay marriage.

“Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples,” the judge wrote in a 136-page ruling that laid out in precise detail why the ban does not pass constitutional muster.

The judge found that the gay marriage ban violates the Constitution’s due process and equal protection clauses.

“Because Proposition 8 disadvantages gays and lesbians without any rational justification, Proposition 8 violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment,” the judge ruled.

This is now the third time that a judge substituted his will for the clear will of the people in the state of California.  There’s a phrase in the Declaration of Independence that no longer matters: “deriving their just Powers from the consent of the governed.”  Of course, there are other phrases that liberals despise in the Declaration of Independence as well, such as “that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.”

For the official record, Thomas Jefferson – who wrote the Declaration of Independence – would have led the revolt against these evil, malicious, degenerate judges and supervised their tarring and feathering.

Just one of Jefferson’s comments about such “judges” as Vaughn Walker:

“The Constitution . . . meant that its coordinate branches should be checks on each other.  But the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.”
—Thomas Jefferson to Abigail Adams, 1804. ME 11:51

Thus this isn’t judicial activism; it’s judicial DESPOTISM.

The people no longer have any real power in this country.  Some unelected judge overturned the will of the people in Arizona by substituting her own ridiculous reasoning for the law.  Now this.  And soon states like Missouri – which issued a 71%-to-29% smackdown to ObamaCare – will likewise fall prey to judicial despotism.  Why even bother to vote when your will is continually overturned by despotism?  Of course, that’s exactly how liberal fascists want you to think.  They want you to give up.  Because socialism is only accepted by an apathetic, defeated people.

Let me address the specific objections to traditional marriage:

“Equal protection”? How is that violated by a law that defines marriage as the union between one man and one woman?

A gay man has the right to marry any adult woman who will have him – the same as me.  There’s your “equal protection.”  On a platter.

If a gay man doesn’t want to take advantage of that, then that’s his loss.  But radically redefining marriage into something it has never been in the history of this nation – or for that matter the history of Western Civilization, or for that matter any civilization period – is not a response that any morally intelligent individual would descend into.

How about the concept of “due process”? How does redefining marriage from an institution to a convention that can be radically transformed by judicial fiat encourage due process?  All it does is create undue process.  How will this judge now prevent three men from marrying?  If you can redefine the “one man and one woman thing,” why can’t you redefine the “two people” thing?  And by what objective standard that can never be overturned?  And if three people can marry, why can’t fifteen or more?  Just who are you to impose your narrow-minded morality on thirty people who want to get married to each other?

The same thing goes to inter-species marriage: just who the hell are you to say that that weird woman next door can’t marry her Great Dane?  Or her Clydesdale Stallion, for that matter?  Why can’t I marry my canary?

And you’d better have a damn good reason for restricting each of these, or they’ll probably be legal next month.

Gays want the right to marry.  The North American Man/Boy Love Association wants the right to have men marry boys.  Unlike homosexuals, pedophiles actually have something approaching a historic case: the Roman world had something called pederasty, in which men gave boys mentoring and help with their futures in exchange for the boys giving up their virginal backsides.

The liberal culture says a twelve year old girl has the right to an abortion on demand without her parents’ consent.  That’s a very adult decision, not unlike a very similar adult decision to have a relationship with the adult who impregnated her in the first place.  Why not give NAMBLA what it wants?  It’s not fair to allow two people who love each other not to marry, after all, right?  That’s the argument we keep hearing, so let’s be consistent.  Why are we denying the right of men and boys to marry whomever they choose?

NAMBLA once actually had United Nations status, due to its membership with the “legitimate” International Lesbian and Gay Association.

NAMBLA has been a member of the International Lesbian and Gay Association for 10 years. We’ve been continuously active in ILGA longer than any other US organization. NAMBLA delegates to ILGA helped write ILGA’s constitution, its official positions on the sexual rights of youth, and its stands against sexual coercion and corporal punishment. We are proud of our contributions in making ILGA a stronger voice for the international gay and lesbian movement and for sexual justice.

Today the gay community excludes NAMBLA as a matter of pure political expediency.  Harry Hay, the founder of the first gay organization in America, ultimately condemned the “gay community” and “reviled what he saw as the movement’s propensity for selling out its fringe members for easy, and often illusory, respectability.” The simple fact is that the gay community is just a bunch of narrow-minded, intolerant bigots and naked political opportunists who want to deny others the basic rights they demand for themselves.

And, of course, President Obama appointed a pro-NAMBLA guy to be the “Safe Schools Czar,” so we have a pretty high-level endorsement right there, don’t we?  We’re talking mainstream stuff here, these days.

Given the fact that judges can usurp the clearly expressed will of the people and impose their own “morality” as they choose, it is guaranteed that we will legalize the buggery of young boys down the road.  Secular humanism  simply doesn’t have the moral resources to prevent it.

Who are you not to allow your little boy to get married to some forty-year old “lover,” you intolerant pig?

People who defend traditional marriage have an easy and powerful defeater for these objections.  Gay marriage proponents have none.  If I’m wrong, then just finish this thought: “A marriage of three people will never be allowed by a court to happen because…”.  And don’t say that it won’t ever happen because marriage is a particular type of thing, because that was our argument, and you ran roughshod over it.

The last idea is this commonly-heard challenge: “How does allowing gay marriage harm heterosexual marriage?”

That one really isn’t very hard to answer.

For one thing, it cheapens marriage to the point of meaninglessness, which is why marriage has declined markedly in every single country in which gay marriage was imposed.  I mean, given how marriage becomes a mere convention, why even bother getting married?

Gay activists look at the gay-marriage countries and argue that divorces have leveled off.  But the problem with that line of reasoning is that divorce only becomes a factor if people actually bother to get married in the first place.  And the fact of the matter is that they AREN’T bothering to get married.  Because marriage is being destroyed.

When a young man today says “I do” in a marriage to his wife, he is continuing an institution that his parents, his parents’ parents, and his parents’ parents’ parents – going all the way back to Adam and Eve (i.e., and NOT Adam and Steve).

We go back to the very beginning when GOD instituted marriage.  And God said:

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:24).

“Shall cleave to his WIFE” – not to whoever or whatever the hell happens to turn his fancy.

Gay marriage does to marriage what cancer does to the cells of a body – it alters it, it corrupts it, and ultimately it destroys it.

Marriage is no longer a holy union between a man and a woman under God that the state recognizes; it becomes a convention BY the state APART from God that can be changed at will by powerful elites who have determined that they know better than God.

So yeah, gay marriage hurts legitimate marriage.  Because it destroys the very concept of marriage.

    Well said. I live in Australia and when I heard about the prop 8 news, I was furious. At the moment, there is an election campaign running in Australia. There is a minority party, the Greens, who have policies I agree with like compassion towards asylum seekers and protecting the environment but one thing I will never ever support, which they do, is gay marriage. I hate how gay people think they’re so oppressed because they can’t defile the sacredness of marriage. There are children being sold into prostitution and slave labour, that’s real oppression and a real human rights issue. Gay people are so self-centred and bent on getting their way with no respect for the fact that marriage has always been between a man and a woman. I like the point about NAMBLA that you make. I’ve seen programs where men have ‘relations’ with young boys and they think it’s ‘natural’ which is exactly the argument that gay people make about their sexual orientation and therefore their ‘right’ to marry. Marriage needs to be respected as a sacred union between a man and a woman and not used as a political football by the self-serving homosexual community. I hope and pray that those who are fighting against this immoral decision will prevail. Great article and expresses the argument well.

  2. HL Says:

    Michael, you actually give rational, reasoned and morally upright arguments in this post that shoot the activist judges’ ruling to smithereens!

    The hatred of God and His moral laws (which happen to bless and be best for humans), of these people is revolting. UGH!

  3. Robert Hagedorn Says:

    The exegesis for the 2nd and 3rd chapters of Genesis makes us nervous. Why? Because the sin committed by Adam and Steve, according to the story, was anal sex–the mystery Augustine almost solved 1600 years ago. (He thought their sin was normal penile/vaginal sex!) For more information google “WikiAnswers-What is wrong with Robert Hagedorn’s Blogs”

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    Wendy,
    Great to hear that support for traditional marriage is still strong in Australia.

    You hit the nail on the head, Wendy: marriage is either SACRED or it isn’t. If it isn’t sacred, then it’s really not worth saving, and there really isn’t much of a reason to bother to do it.

    Which of course is the death knell of the family, but so what? Because the family really wouldn’t be worth crap, either.

    It is BECAUSE marriage is a sacred institution that it and the family that comes from it are important.

    Not that gays or liberals give a damn about that. They would see us being born out of test tubes with no mothers and fathers to take the place of government rearing/indoctrinating children if they could.

    You stand strong in Australia, Wendy.

    Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” —Dietrich Bonhoeffer

  5. Michael Eden Says:

    G.K. Chesterton put it exactly right when he said, “When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing — they believe in anything.”

    Just as St. Paul put it exactly right when he said, “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”

    The secular humanist “intellectual” class have emptied their minds of truth, of wisdom, of a worldview that actually works in the real world, and replaced it with the devil’s lies.

    In their case, the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe to keep them from seeing the light of the glorious gospel of the Messiah, who is the image of God. — 2 Corinthians 4:4

    The Creator of the Universe – aka the God of the Bible – created the world so that that which was good would ultimately lead to salvation, and that which was evil would ultimately lead to destruction. And the left choose the path to destruction every single time.

    You love evil more than good, Falsehood more than speaking what is right. — Psalm 52:3

    But he who sins against Me injures himself; all those who hate Me love death — Proverbs 8:36

    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! — Isaiah 5:20

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    Just bizarre.

    If you read the account of the destruction of Sodom, you will immediately see that the men of Sodom demanded to have sex with the angels, who had come as men (i.e., as the type of people who DON’T HAVE VAGINAS). Further, they then rejected the daughters, who DID have vaginas. The men of Sodom wanted to sodomize other men.

    Let’s look at what God intended:

    He created them male and female and blessed them. And when they were created, he called them “man.” – Genesis 5:2

    The words of Jesus: “But from the beginning of creation, God MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE” (Mark 10:6).

    Romans 1:24-28:

    24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

    26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

    28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.

    The ultimate issue with the men of Sodom was defiant rebellion against God.

    God created humankind male and female. When God ordained marriage, He ordained it between a man and a woman.

    “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh” – Genesis 2:24

    Any other sexual union abandons God’s created order and is the result of a depraved mind.

    Some exhibiting that depraved mind reason that since some animals engage in homosexual acts, therefore homosexuality is fine with God. Wrong. For one thing, we are not animals. If you want to be an animal rather than a human being, fine. But God is going to judge you to hell for abandoning the human nature He gave you and giving yourselves over to unholy lusts. Secondly, the biblical account is rather clear: when sin entered the world, the very creation was tainted. Therefore animals aren’t acting out God’s created order any more than humans are. The only difference between humans and animals in this sense is that God will hold humans accountable because they and they alone were created in HIS image.

    Read what Paul wrote in Romans 8:18-25. Paul says, “We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.”

    You can look at the world through the God’s-eye-view as presented in His Word, or you can place the “wisdom” of man above it and pursue the fruits of a depraved mind.

    Personally, I love the God’s-eye-view.

  7. Jasper McMillan Says:

    America is through. We have turned our backs on God. We accept any and all depravity as good and pass laws legalizing it. Christianity is on the decline. Churches across America no longer preach the Cross and the perils of sin. They prefer to preach “friendly and non-threathening” sermons designed to make one feel warm and toasty inside. The truth is no longer welcomed inside most churches. We watch tele-evangelists everyday and regard them as God sent yet, they are nothing more than thieves, swindling millions from the people who are themselves too lazy to read Gods word for themselves. If they did, they would know Gods truth and not have to rely on men and women who do not fear God at all.

  8. Michael Eden Says:

    Jasper,

    My only bone of contention with anything you said is to remind that God is also gracious and willing to forgive those who turn to Him.

    But things being as they are, I believe you state reality.

    Furthermore, there comes a point when repentance is too late. When you die, for instance, your fate has already been determined. And I think we are in the last days, when it will soon be that it is too late for repentance prior to the coming of the Antichrist – who will literally lead the world to hell on earth.

    Pray for America. Pray that God does not give us the leaders and the fate as a nation that we deserve.
