Dignity, Hmmm

Regaining the Center

The Supreme Court announced yesterday a 5-4 decision allowing same sex marriages in all 50 States. Writing for the majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy said the decision was about “dignity”. Hmmm.

The Court’s hard core opposition, Allito, Thomas, and Scallia, joined by Chief Justice Roberts tried to hide their religiously grounded views by claiming that no where in the Constitution is their guidance on what constitutes marriage. Alliot wondered whether the Country had now entered a slippery slope where religious views would be exiled to the privacy of ones home. Hmmm (where else should they be?).

To the extent that marriage is never mentioned in the Constitution, the minority is correct that the Federal Government has no Constitutional right to define “marriage”. The Constitution does have a 14th Amendment, however, which provides due process and equal protection under the law to all citizens. Herein lies the clue of why the minority…

Why America Is Failing – ‘Constitutional Remedies to a Lawless Supreme Court’

logo2
‘This week, we have twice seen Supreme Court justices violating their judicial oaths’.

‘Yesterday, the justices rewrote Obamacare, yet again, in order to force this failed law on the American people’.

‘Today, the Court doubled down with a 5–4 opinion that undermines not just the definition of marriage, but the very foundations of our representative form of government’.

‘Both decisions were judicial activism, plain and simple. Both were lawless’.(1)

—————–

This is why America is failing.

‘undermines the foundations of government’

‘undermines the definition of marriage’

the Supreme Court is ‘lawless’.

  • When one political party – Republicans – en masse – decide that if they don’t have laws, a government, their moral standard their way – then everything else is lawless…..illegal…..unconstitutional.

No Compromise.

————————-
‘Undermines the foundations of Government’.

14th Amendment – “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws”.
**That’s pretty clear. THe 14th Amendment IS one of the foundations of our government.
———————–

Undermines the definition of marriage.

Marriage is not mentioned in the Constitution.
Now if you mean marriage as defined by the Christian Bible – which definition do you want?
Also what IS written in our Constitution regarding religions – Article 6 Section 3 – “…… but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States”.
Please remove YOUR interpretation of YOUR Bible from OUR Government.

———————–

‘The Supreme Court is lawless;.

Article 3 Section 1 – “The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court”

Article 3 Section 2 – “The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution, the laws of the United States”

Republicans And The Right To Marry – ”Murder Of The Masses’: 7 Insane Right-Wing Predictions About Gay Marriage’

6

Again all you republican religions holier then thou pundits – show me where the Bible or marriage is written in the Constitution.

Because the 14th Amendment covers equal protection under the law.

————–

“If this Supreme Court rules against marriage, all hell is going to break loose,” or so warned Tom DeLay, the former House GOP leader’.

‘DeLay has said that “if they rule against marriage,” then “we will all defy” the “ten [sic] unelected, unaccountable people” on the court, joining a host of Religious Right leaders, including presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, in signing a vow to resist a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality’.

‘In anticipation of the upcoming Supreme Court ruling, we’ve compiled a video of the Right’s most dire warnings about a potential decision striking down gay marriage bans’,

‘Including self-proclaimed “prophet” Cindy Jacobs’ fear that gay marriage will lead to natural disasters’;

‘Preacher Scott Lively predicting a devastating “calamity”;

Glenn Beck turning into the anti-gay version of Martin Luther King, Jr.’;

Tony Perkins calling for a revolution against gay marriage’;

‘And Pat Robertson, well, being Pat Robertson’.
