Of course the events outlined below come as no surprise to GLOOG readers or anyone else who recognizes The 800 Pound Elephant in The Room.   Once again 9 lawyers decide how 300 million people should live, what they should accept, what they should think, and after thousands of years of their religion and traditions and in spite of Mother Nature and her laws, even who they can marry.  And the opinion and the demands of the American people be damned!

Supreme Court supremacists

Phyllis Schlafly zings Kennedy for ‘insulting’ DOMA justification

The Supreme Court decision on marriage, as Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in his dissent, “is an assertion of judicial supremacy over the people’s representatives in Congress and the Executive. It envisions a Supreme Court standing (or rather enthroned) at the apex of government, empowered to decide all constitutional questions, always and everywhere ‘primary’ in its role.”

Scalia said this role would have been unrecognizable to those who wrote our Constitution. They knew the dangers of “primary” power, and that’s why they divided power into three branches of government.

The New York Times headlined its report with the bald-faced lie that the court “Follows the Nation’s Lead.” Au contraire: the court ignored the nation’s lead. The court rejected the majority vote of the people of 31 states, including our nation’s bluest state, California, and ignored the fact that the traditional definition of marriage is enshrined, either by statute or state constitution, in 38 states.

Not only were the court’s decisions wrong but, as Scalia wrote, the Supreme Court had no power under the Constitution to invalidate those two democratically adopted laws, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Prop 8. California passed Prop 8 in a ballot initiative procedure designed to enable the people to correct public officials’ actions that are not acceptable to the people.
