Let states decide legality of same-sex marriage

Thousands of years of human history cannot be overruled by three hours of debate before nine imperfect people. But on Tuesday, April 28, at the U.S. Supreme court, that is exactly what liberal, homosexual activists were hoping for in the race to upend nature’s law – and nature’s God.

Outside the U.S. Supreme Court, where the future of civilization was on trial, people from both sides of the marriage debate soaked in the sun while inside clouds gathered over the question that’s shadowed America for the last 11 years: Does the court have a right to force same-sex “marriage” on every state in the union?

Two years ago, these same justices argued “no.” It was wrong, Anthony Kennedy warned, for courts to “put a thumb on the scales and influence a state’s decision as to how to shape its own marriage laws.”

Now, a vocal minority is asking these nine justices to put not just thumb, but the body of America’s highest court on the scales, toppling 240 years of self-governance. If they concede, burying the nation’s democratic heritage under an avalanche of judicial activism, states’ rights and the voters’ voices are forever at risk.

For the sake of our great nation, we must hope and pray this does not happen.
