The Case For Traditional Marriage

by James L. Lambert - October 5th, 2008 - North County Times (San Diego)

California voters were taken aback by the May 15 California Supreme Court (4-3) decision that reversed the votes of 4.5 million Californians who said "yes" to traditional marriage in 2000. Proposition 22, which legally defined marriage as between one man and one woman, was passed overwhelmingly in November 2000.

Essentially, the court by a slim 4-3 decision overturned the will of the people and said "no" to 63 percent of San Diego County voters.


Many members of the predominantly liberal media are reluctant to remind the public of the long-term consequences of this court decision. In Massachusetts, where that state's legislature rejected traditional marriage, Catholic Charities was denied its tax-exempt status because of its defense of marriage as between one man and one woman. That form of penalty has hurt thousands of families who benefited from a charity that specialized in finding adoptive parents for kids from 5 to 15 years old (who are traditionally difficult to place).

The major consequence of this ruling, and others like it around the country, is a growing recognition that our courts are corrupt and practicing anarchy. It is absolutely ignorant for a court representing a government based on democratic representation to forget the consequences of subverting democracy. Yet that is what is happening. Our courts have decided that there is some pure law that is above our people, our Constitution and the moral values of our reverence for God.

Without respect for those, anarchy will allow any Judge to invoke law to order anything they want. That is what they are doing. They have replaced the rule of law with the rule of judges. There is no moral, Constitutional or democratic defense of the current anarchy and corruption in our courts.
