I suppose that somewhere in the hereafter Woodrow Wilson, Teddy Roosevelt, Louis Brandies, et al, are smiling at the Supreme Court's decision to legalize gay marriage across the country. Not because any of those men were necessarily supporters of two men or two women (or one now supposes any combination of humans) marrying each other, but because they were champions of the progressive agenda. And the progressive agenda informs all its votaries that it is a centralized government that is best endowed to make these decisions for everyone.
The majority opinion of the Supreme Court on the gay marriage decision, written by Justice Kennedy, is long in soaring rhetoric about Liberties and freedom of expressions that are ostensibly guaranteed by the 14th Amendment to the United States constitution, and short on any real legal reasoning. As Justice Scalia said in his dissenting opinion, "The Supreme Court of the United States has descended from the legal reasoning of John Marshall and Joseph Story to the mystical aphorisms of a fortune cookie."
With all due respect to the fortune cookie writers, the pithy and sometimes insightful statements written on thin pieces of paper and crammed into funny looking cookies eaten at the end of a Chinese meal, are a pathetic substitute for the brilliance of the U.S. constitution. And as Justice Scalia rightly pointed out, the 5 justices that ruled in favor of gay marriage being a constitutional right using their twisted and bastardized interpretation of the 14th Amendment assumes that they are wiser and more insightful than all the great legal minds that have existed in this country since that amendment was ratified just after the Civil War.
If we could speak to the dead and poll them, those who wrote the 14th Amendment, and those who supported it, and those who voted to make it a part of this country's great repository of freedom set forth in the constitution, would to a man, woman, and child, without hesitation, say it gave equal protection under the law for blacks in this country. One would be hard pressed to find a single person alive during that period that would agree with these 5 lawyers in black robes who changed the definition of marriage at the behest of a mere 1% of the population.
The forces of tyranny and oppression aligned against this great republic have existed from the beginning. And Abraham Lincoln rightly said that the United States of America could only be destroyed from within. The legalizing of gay marriage, and the slippery slope it greases (a slope that could lead to legalized polygamy, incest, and pedophilia) is just one more thread ripped from the fabric of our greatness. A fabric stitched together with the traditional values of virtue, which is currently being torn asunder by the soulless, moral-less, and vice-ridden beast of modernity.
