Forget A Federal Marriage Amendment and Go For Religious
Freedom Acts In All 50 States
“I assume that those who cling to old beliefs will be able to whisper their thoughts in the recesses of their homes, but if
they repeat those views in public, they will risk being labeled as bigots and treated as such by governments,
employers, and schools. By imposing its own views on the entire country, the majority facilitates the marginalization of
the many Americans who have traditional ideas.” – Justice Samuel Alito on the Supreme Court decision that forced
gay marriage on the country
The dilemma Christians and conservatives face after the Supreme Court’s made-up-from-whole-cloth-instead-of-the-
Constitution ruling on gay marriage is one that Machiavelli described over 500 years ago.
“And what physicians say about disease is applicable here: that at the beginning a disease is easy to cure but difficult
to diagnose; but as time passes, not having been treated or recognized at the outset, it becomes easy to diagnose
but difficult to cure. The same thing occurs in affairs of state; for by recognizing from afar the diseases that are
spreading in the state (which is a gift given only to a prudent ruler), they can be cured quickly; but when they are not
recognized and are left to grow to the extent that everyone recognizes them, there is no longer any cure.”
Too many conservatives have refused to stand up on social issues and have thus allowed liberals to make their case
in a vacuum. Too many churches have decided they’d rather keep their heads down than stand up for Christian
beliefs. Too many Republicans have played by Marquis of Queensbury rules when it comes to Supreme Court
justices while Democrats have played to win. You’ll note that liberal judges always, always, always vote liberally on
key issues, regardless of the law, while some “conservative” justices like John Roberts and Anthony “Captain Coin
Flip” Kennedy move to the left, even if they have to defy the Constitution to do it.
Of course, all of that is water under the bridge and the majority of states in the country, which didn’t vote for gay
marriage, have had it thrust upon them unwillingly by tyrants in black robes.
As a response to this, some Republicans have called for term limits for the Supreme Court. Ted Cruz has called for
justices to have to face the voters every 8 years. Scott Walker has called for a constitutional amendment to roll back
the Supreme Court’s decision.
