Alabama’s top judge: ‘Same-sex marriage’ creation ‘lawless’

From WND.com, by Bob Unruh, 03/04/2016 –

‘Like Dred Scott and Roe v. Wade … it is an immoral, unconstitutional, and tyrannical opinion’

Judge Roy Moore

The Alabama Supreme Court on Friday dispensed with what probably was the last legal case over the U.S. Supreme Court’s creation last summer of “same-sex marriage,” dismissing several related petitions and ripping the nation’s highest court as “lawless.”

The Alabama court also left undisturbed its determination that the state’s Sanctity of Marriage Amendment and Marriage Protection Act, limiting marriage to one man and one woman, are constitutional and should be followed by the state’s probate judges, the only ones in Alabama who can issue marriage licenses.

From The New Yorker, By , 09/01/15 –

The beleaguered liberals on the Supreme Court had a great deal to celebrate in the term that ended in June. Two epic cases, and even some lesser ones, went their way. In Obergefell v. Hodges, the Justices ruled, five to four, that all fifty states must recognize same-sex marriages. And in King v. Burwell, the Court, by a vote of six to three, dismissed a challenge to the Affordable Care Act that might have, as a practical matter, destroyed the law. A surprising victory in a housing-discrimination case and another where the Court allowed limits on judges’ soliciting campaign contributions completed a major run of progressive victories.

Justice Kennedy Learns a New Word



by Phyllis Schlafly, Founder & CEO of Eagle Forum, 05/05/15 –
Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy learned and used a new word during the Supreme Court’s oral argument about Marriage. He said, “The word that keeps coming back to me in this case is millennia.”

He wasn’t talking about the new voting bloc of young people called the millennials. He was referring to the thousands of years in which the public has honored marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

“And suddenly,” as Justice Stephen G. Breyer said, “you want nine people outside the ballot box” to change that by judicial fiat. That sounds like somebody is seeking government by judicial supremacists instead of by “We the people” (as our Constitution says).

Supreme Court turns away challenge to Wisconsin voter ID law

By Associated Press

Supreme Court BuildingMADISON, Wis. (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday turned away a challenge to Wisconsin’s voter identification law, after having blocked the state from requiring photo IDs in November’s general election.

The justices’ action means the state is free to impose the voter ID requirement in future elections, but Republican Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel said it won’t be enforced for an election two weeks from now.

Legislatures Should Curb Judicial Supremacy Over Marriage


by Phillis Schlafly, January 22, 2015 –
It’s Roe v. Wade all over again, as the Supreme Court is poised to invent a new right to same-sex marriage found nowhere in the four corners of the Constitution. Fortunately, the Founders gave us checks and balances against this overreaching in power.

Who Gets to Define Marriage


by Lenny Leatherman

Which of the three branches of government actually has the authority to define marriage -legislative, executive, or judicial?

Should that question be settled before the Supreme Court weighs in on same sex marriage?

If federal courts actually have the authority to “un-define” marriage by ruling that individual states cannot define marriage as being between ‘one man and one woman’, do they in fact have the authority to define marriage?

So…what is marriage?  The voters in Texas answered the question of marriage (between one man and one woman) long ago in our State Constitution.

Millions more Americans will have the right to drive and walk around U.S. cities with hidden, loaded guns if freelance videographer Edward Peruta wins his fight to carry one on assignment.

The sheriff in San Diego rejected Peruta’s application for a permit to take his Colt 1911 .45 caliber pistol while traveling with cash and expensive equipment in high-crime California neighborhoods. He sued, and a three-judge panel of a federal appeals court ruled in February that any responsible, law-abiding citizen is entitled under the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment to possess a concealed firearm in public for self defense.

Future of the Supreme Court?

By:  Jim Carroll

In the near future there will be a major political event that may affect our country for generations to come.  No, I’m not talking about the upcoming 2014 mid-term elections; I’m not even talking about the 2016 Presidential election.  What I am referring to is the next probable vacancy on the Supreme Court.

For years now, the Supreme Court has been split ideologically, with four liberal leaning Justices, four conservative leaning Justices, and one swing vote who leans more to the conservative side.  Even with recent changes on the Court, the ideological split has been relatively maintained.  In the most recent changes on the Court, retiring conservative justices have left and been replaced under a conservative administration, and the more liberal justices have done likewise under a liberal administration, but there is a chance that may soon change.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a Question of Eugenics

Does Ginsburg see eugenic culling as a compelling state interest?

Here’s what Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine: “Frankly I had thought that at the time [Roe v. Wade] was decided,” Ginsburg told her interviewer, Emily Bazelon, “there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
