The late Judge Robert Bork wrote prophetically in 2004 that the only viable option left for protecting the institution of traditional marriage in the United States is amending the Constitution to define marriage.
Without the amendment, Bork predicted, the U.S. Supreme Court will “almost certainly” create “a national constitutional right to homosexual marriage.”
In 2013, the Supreme Court threw out the Defense of Marriage Act, so now the federal government must treat same-sex marriage no differently than it treats traditional marriage.
This week, the court will begin the process of reaching finality on this issue as it hears arguments dealing with the question of the constitutionality of state prohibitions of same-sex marriage.
The legal redefinition of marriage is just the latest, according to Bork, of “a series of cultural debacles forced upon us by judges following no law but their own predilections.”
There are many famous quotations from America’s Founding Fathers – George Washington, John Adams and others – noting the inseparability of a free nation from the principles of religion and morality.
French statesman Alexis de Tocqueville – author of “Democracy in America,” which many view as the greatest book ever written about the United States – wrote in 1835, “There is no country in the world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence over the souls of men than in America.”
Central to the propaganda being sold is the notion that embracing sexual behaviors that our religions prohibit represents progress. But in fact, these behaviors are more ancient than our religions. Our religions were the answer to these destructive behaviors.
And no, this is not about freedom. Few do not believe or accept that every American should be free to live as he or she chooses.
This is a battle about redefining the values of our nation’s culture and, hence, redefining our nation itself.
A Supreme Court decision prohibiting bans on same-sex marriage in states would negate ballot initiatives in 19 states codifying traditional marriage.
