Over the course of the past week, we have read volumes from the Liberal Media mouthpieces and lapdogs of the communists and demagogues who are lusting to overrule natural law and install their own personal desires. Yet they still cannot/will not accept the truth which is this: Natural Law will always trump positive law and personal opinion.
Still, we must work through the fallacies, inconsistencies, and outright lies held in the minds of the governmentally educated (the low information people), dispelling the disinformation taught over the course of 60 to 70 years. So let us begin.
The current hearing before the Supreme Court regarding Proposition 8 in California is misdirected at best. First, Prop 8 is not a law; it is an amendment to the California Constitution. As such, it is an integral part of that Constitution, voted on by the people, not enacted or otherwise voted upon by elected representatives and signed into law by the governor.
As frustrating as it may be for those of certain persuasions to realize, not even a federal court has jurisdiction over a State Constitution as long as that Constitution and the amendments voted on by the people are not in conflict with the federal Constitution. To understand this reality more fully, please take time to read Mr. Mike DeVine’s article on Western Free Press.
Beyond that reality, those of certain persuasions must still try to cobble together some justification for their alternate lifestyle and try to call it a marriage. To quote a certain individual who is idolized by the communists, “let me be clear:” marriage according to the immemorial understanding of mankind, viz. a contract by two people of the opposite sex to live together and become one flesh, loving and cherishing one another.
This is not merely a religious concept; it is a time honored sociological concept that has been accepted down through the ages as a basic underpinning of society necessary for the maintenance, health and well-being of social comity. To undermine this natural law principle through some man-made positive law or imperfect human juridical ruling is to contradict the understanding and practice of the ages and suppress the common understanding of right reason.
But as significant as those forgoing realities are, we must be equally cognizant of what Pope Francis, then Cardinal Bergoglio, has already stated about the legalization of unions between same-sex couples in 2010:
Let’s not be naïve, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.
