SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Feb. 26, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Judge Orlando Garcia's decision, though not unexpected, continues the disturbing trend of liberal judges amending the Constitution contrary to the will of the people and the intent of the Founders. While Judge Garcia's decision is not unexpected, and was encouraged by the 5-4 liberal decision of the U.S. Supreme Court striking down the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, respect for the judiciary will be lessened by this opinion and by a Supreme Court opinion affirming it, if such comes.
The American people as a whole still have not accepted the legitimacy of the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions, even after forty-one years. Decisions of evolving standards about sexual behavior and identity should be resolved through the political process, just as many of the civil rights efforts for African-Americans came through legislative processes and through amending the Constitution through the 13th and 14th Amendments that were ratified by the people, not imposed by the judiciary.
Even Brown v. Board of Education which ended segregation in schools, did not create a new right, it merely reversed a bad Supreme Court decision (Plessy v. Ferguson) which had gutted the 13th and 14th Amendments.
No one can be intellectually honest and claim that the original Constitution, or even the 14th Amendment in 1861, was intended by the people to give homosexual couples the right to marry.
The lawyers for the homosexual couples said they wanted to remove the stigma from homosexuality. For a large portion of the American people, there will always be a stigma attached to homosexuality, adultery, fornication and all sex outside of marriage. That stigma comes from the Creator who created men, women and marriage.
This case is supposedly about promoting wrong doing and calling it a right. As the Declaration of Independence stated: "We believe these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights …" If we continue to reject the Creator who gave us these rights, He will eventually reject us as a nation. We are still incurring His building wrath for murdering over fifty million children. We are fortunate that He is long-suffering. We urge Christians to repent for our sins and cry out for a national revival.
