What happens when lawyers decide what a society should believe
Today we saw what happens when five lawyers (of the nine on the bench of the US Supreme Court) decide what a society, what a nation, should believe. In the case of Obergefell v. Hodges that same-sex couples have the right to marry, under the 14th Amendment. Never mind that the 14th Amendment was not written with that idea in mind. Five justices on the court wanted to rule in favor of the plaintiffs, and so they invented law, using the concept that the US Constitution is a “living document,” and it can be subverted and perverted in whatever ways are necessary to achieve a goal. Now same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states.
That’s unfortunate, because this is only one step in the endless battle that “progressives” (also called Communists) wage to destroy societies so that Communism can take control. The next steps in the culture war are, in no particular order:
- Legalizing polygamy/group marriages
- Legalizing beastiality
- Legalizing incest and incestuous marriages
- Legalizing posthumous marriage
- Legalizing child marriage
- Legalizing rape (revising the age limit of statutory rape downward)
This process will take decades, but it is already under way. For example, you can see polygamy being promoted in television shows like “Big Love,” “Sister Wives,” “My Five Wives,” and “Modern Polygamy.” The media effort to condition society to accept polygamy has been underway for more than a decade. Expect the other deviant practices to show up on a television screen near you in the coming years.
The ruling today on same-sex marriage was weak, five to four. Another ruling which instructed society on what to believe (Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in 1973), was stronger (seven to two). Roe v. Wade touched off an unending culture war which has recently seen abortion on the losing side of most battles, and a majority of young people now frown on abortion. Given that same-sex marriage affects only the 1.6 percent of the US population that self-identifies as gay, and given that same-sex marriage was legalized by a weak majority of five to four on the Supreme Court, this new front in the culture war has an excellent chance of being rolled back in the coming years.
It’s sad that the Supreme Court chose to blatantly disregard the will of the people in the many states which voted to ban same-sex marriages, and that they again chose to invent law (again using the 14th Amendment, as they did in Roe v. Wade). The culture of the United States is becoming less based on democracy and free will, and more based on theocracy, the religion of progressivism, imposed by a tiny minority of government functionaries at the behest of a tiny minority of activists and lobbyists, and enforced at gunpoint by the government.
However, rules like this one that support “progressive” causes can only be enforced as long as the government exists. When the government falls, as all governments do, the underlying rules of society will reassert themselves.
It’s just a question of when.
UPDATE: The ink was barely dry on Friday’s Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage, when Politico began the next campaign – for polygamy.
I told you so.
