And finally we have the out-of-control ruling released today in the Obergefell v. Hodges case that imposes same-sex marriage on the entire country. As Justice Antonin Scalia has warned in his eloquent dissent, democracy itself is at stake. Ironically, Chief Justice Roberts got it right today, when he says that the opinion by the liberals on the Court has nothing to do with the Constitution. Here is my statement:
Today's decision shows that the Supreme Court can be a danger to our republican form of government. The opinion authored by Justice Kennedy is not constitutional, is unmoored from law and precedent - and is invalid. The exercise of raw judicial power by five justices should be resisted under law and overturned. Justices Kennedy, Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan abused their public offices and acted contrary to their oaths of office by assuming the power to legislate their progressive views on homosexual marriage from the bench. The personal advocacy for homosexual causes by justices in the majority has also cast an ethical cloud over this decision. This decision will lead to frontal assaults, led by the Obama administration, on a right which actually is in the Constitution, the right to freely exercise one's religion. I fear this judicial coup will lead to social unrest, the jailing of religious leaders, and other outrages against those Americans who shared the views of Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and all of Western civilization on traditional marriage. This is a terrible, terrible day for our nation.
We know what a punch to the gut these rulings are for our readers and supporters who value the rule of law and the idea of constitutional limited government. For the moment, those principles are lost. I encourage you to read all three opinions at issue (especially the dissents!). Again, you can view the opinion on marriage here, the opinion on Obamacare here, and the opinion on so-called "disparate impact" here.
In the wrong hands, the judiciary is a threat to the republic. You can be sure that Judicial Watch will continue to advocate for a constitutional and accountable judicial.
