OPINION, April 9, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- Statement of Eugene Delgaudio, President of Public Advocate of the U.S., Inc., responding to Supreme Court threatened destruction of traditional marriage:
"Public Advocate's 48-page legal brief filed in the U.S. Supreme Court this past Good Friday was designed to explain to the court that traditional marriage is an institution ordained of God. As such, traditional husband-wife marriage is not subject to being revised by a majority of the elite lawyers from Harvard, Yale, and Columbia who are now serving on the U.S. Supreme Court." (The brief is available here)
"Our brief first explains why the Fourteenth Amendment was never intended to mandate homosexual marriage. Then, we expose how judges who personally support homosexual marriage are determined to misuse their limited power to interpret the Constitution as though they had full authority to amend the Constitution to change its meaning. Lastly, our brief starkly warns about the consequences that can come upon a nation that violates God's laws.
"Our brief cites the excellent decision of the Alabama Supreme Court in upholding traditional marriage, which explains how truly revolutionary a decision for homosexual marriage would be, forcing legislatures to rewrite not just family law, but property law, insurance law, and laws in many other areas.
"In more than 30 states, the voters chose to defend marriage as only between one man and one woman. But the U.S. Supreme Court may rule against these states -- stripping these states of real marriage and disenfranchising citizens who voted according to personal beliefs.
"It is the text of the U.S. Constitution that is the Supreme Law of the Land, not what Courts say the Constitution means. The Courts have been wrong before, such as in the Dred Scott decision, and the people have refused to follow their wrong decisions. Therefore, the U.S. Supreme Court cannot assume that the states and the people will sit back and watch the foundations of the nation be destroyed because they want homosexual marriage.
"In the days since our brief was filed, some of the consequences of homosexual marriage discussed in that brief have already come true. Christian-owned businesses have been under concerted attack simply because the owners want to run their businesses by the principles of their faith. And, some have urged that churches lose their tax exemption if they do not change their doctrine to support homosexual marriage. The coercive agenda of homosexual activists has been on full display.
"Congress and the states should also take positive action by passing religious liberty protection legislation to curtail the abuses being done to Christian businesses under the guise of 'hate crimes' laws. However, few members of Congress apparently have the guts to stand up to this abnormal lawlessness. Few real leaders have stepped forward to protect Christian businessmen from attacks by a blatantly anti-Christian Executive, President Barack Obama and by well funded, anti-Christian 'flash mobs.'
"This is why we have done our best to remind the U.S. Supreme Court of the Biblical foundation of American law and the consequences of ignoring the laws of God."
