The Unelected Supreme Court Declares Same-Sex Marriage a Constitutional Right

Conservatives in support of traditional marriage just can't seem to catch a break in America's modern political climate. Just one day after declaring Obamacare magically rewritten and that lawsuits against discrimination in housing don't require actual proof of discrimination, the Supreme Court also reinterpreted the 14th amendment to suit their political agenda. By a vote of 5-4, the Supreme Court ruled that the right to privacy under that aforementioned 14th Amendment (adopted in 1868, when every state in America criminalized sodomy) requires that every state in America grant marriage licenses to men who want to marry men and women who want to marry women, and that every state recognize such licenses from every other state.

As a result, the Supreme Court should be called America's Supreme Rulers since they can make up any law as they see fit. The court now shows that words have no meaning and can be left up to anyone's interpretation and implementation of the utopian agenda of the far-left. Government has now become America's god, and in essence, the world's god since America is still a world leader. Of course, Justice Anthony Scalia (who has long wanted same-sex constitutional rights) delivered the majority opinion. He even said that the Constitution mandates “respect” for sodomy. Kennedy opens by essentially paraphrasing himself in the pro-abortion case Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1989), in which he established one of his many preferred fantasy rights: “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life.” Kennedy then went on to say:

“From their beginning to their most recent page, the annals of human history reveal the transcendent importance of marriage. The lifelong union of a man and a woman always has promised nobility and dignity to all persons, without regard to their station in life. Marriage is sacred to those who live by their religions and offers unique fulfillment to those who find meaning in the secular realm. Its dynamic allows two people to find a life that could not be found alone, for a marriage becomes greater than just the two persons. Rising from the most basic human needs, marriage is essential to our most profound hopes and aspirations.”

Kennedy continues by telling stories of saddened homosexual lovers who cannot express their love in the same ways as those in opposite-sex relationships. Kennedy also claimed that “It demeans gays and lesbians for the State to lock them out of a central institution of the Nation’s society.” Kennedy is essentially saying that for thousands of years, the entire world has been wrong. Moreover, he goes after religious liberties by saying:

“Many who deem same-sex marriage to be wrong reach that conclusion based on decent and honorable religious or philosophical premises, and neither they nor their beliefs are disparaged here. But when that sincere, personal opposition becomes enacted law and public policy, the necessary consequence is to put the imprimatur of the State itself on an exclusion that soon demeans or stigmatizes those whose own liberty is then denied.”

Justice Scalia wrote this fiery dissent:

“[I]t is not of special importance to me what the law says about marriage. It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact— and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of the Court’s claimed power to create “liberties” that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected commit- tee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.”
