Judge Walker Proves With Gay Marriage Case That Liberal Activism Is Winning
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}
jeffcrouere_150_200Once again, an unelected, appointed liberal Judge has made a ruling that negates the voice of the people. The wishes of 52 percent of the voters in California were discarded by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker, who struck down the state’s ban on gay marriage and gave gay activists a tremendous victory.

This decision nullified the votes of 7 million people who in November of 2008 ratified Proposition 8, the ban on gay marriage. The decision also nullified the rulings from the state courts in California.  

This continues a disturbing trend that has been accelerating in the last few years. The voice of the people is being ignored by activist judges. It occurred in California in the case of affirmative action and just happened last week in Arizona when an activist judge decided to negate key parts of the state’s immigration law.

If the vote of the people has no meaning, then our constitutional republic is in danger. In fact, we are witnessing the destruction of democracy in our country.

The ruling sparked celebration among gay activists who will undoubtedly contest marriage bans in other states.

Yet, the ruling is a sad day for the millions of voters who believe in the concept of traditional marriage. For thousands of years, marriage has been reserved for one man and one woman. This has been the tradition in civilized societies throughout our human history.

Today, we are changing a basic definition of an institution that is very important to Americans. Our country is not ready to accept gay marriage and polls show a strong majority of citizens want to protect the traditional definition of marriage.

If judges continue to ignore the will of the people, it will spark more voter unrest and distrust about an unelected and unresponsive judiciary.

This case was historic for it was the first time a federal court made a decision on the gay marriage issue. However, the fight will continue and is far from over as the decision will be appealed, but it might take several years for the case to be heard by the Supreme Court. In the meantime, voters “that want to uphold traditional family values will be outraged,” according to attorney Donald Napier, who defended Proposition 8.

Currently five states allow gay marriage and this ruling will certainly spark more efforts to expand this right. The cultural war is alive and well in the country and as this ruling indicates, the supporters of traditional values are losing.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
