Remember in May when the Imperial Court of California (aka the California Supreme Court) manufactured a “right” for homosexual couples to call their unions “marriage,” doing so in defiance of the law passed by Californians explicitly defining marriage as between a man and a woman?
Well, a “rebel alliance” of at least two California counties may be striking back in defense of the law, according to WorldNetDaily.
The Kern County board of supervisors is meeting today to discuss a proposed ordinance which would have the county simply continue to uphold the existing law which defines what people have understood for thousands of years: marriage is between a man and a woman.
A memo on the effort cites both Abraham Lincoln and the Dred Scott decision, and the Declaration of Independence:
“Our republican government is wary of judicial tyranny,” the memo about Kern County’s meeting said. “Abraham Lincoln was severely critical of a United States Supreme Court decision which held that Congress had no power to restrict slavery in federal territories and that black persons had no rights which white persons were bound to respect.”
“Lincoln refused to accept the Court’s ruling in Dred Scott v. Sanford, (1857) as the last word on the subject. As he said in his first inaugural address (1861): ‘[I]f the policy of the government upon vital questions affecting the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made in ordinary litigation between parties in personal actions, the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having to that extent practically resigned their government into the hands of that eminent tribunal,” the advisory said.
“Kern County citizens who seek to defend traditional marriage, based upon ‘the laws of nature and of nature’s God,’ are acting in the spirit and following the good example of our nation’s sixteenth president. They understand, as he did, that the people – not the judges – are the sovereign rulers,” the memo said.
The laws of nature tell us that male and female bodies were designed to work in complimentary fashion, and to produce offspring together. Nature also tells us the union of the bodies of two men or two women serves no useful or legitimate function, and can actually be counter to the good health of those involved.
Nature’s God tells us in His written instructions (i.e. the Bible) that He designed humans to express their sexuality only between a man and a woman in marriage, that homosexual behavior is a violation of His design for human sexuality, and that He strongly disapproves of homosexual behavior.
The drafter of the proposed ordinance, Randy Thomasson, says it’s time to begin the fight for marriage.
“This will be as inspirational as the Alamo, without the guns, knives, blood or death,” he said.
No kidding! To see county-level government stand up to judicial tyranny when a state legislature and state governor cower in fear of the black-robed oligarchy.
Not only is the judicial branch not allowed to write laws, they are expressly forbidden to do so.
If these county governments go through with obeying the law, they may just inspire other counties in California to do the same thing: stand for the law and against judicial activism.
Who knows? The trend might actually spread to other states, and with a miracle in motion might instill some backbone in Congress to stand against federal judicial tyranny.
I know I’m getting carried away, but the thought of returning to constitutional government and “government of the people, by the people and for the people” is a pretty intoxicating concept!
