June 26, 2013 -- For Immediate ReleaseProp. 8, Natural Marriage, Killed Off By Federal Judiciary
Thomasson: "The Supreme Court has done vast damage to man-woman marriage, the foundation of the natural family."
Sacramento, California -- SaveCalifornia.com, representing the truth of man-woman marriage supported by millions of Californians, is saddened and disappointed that Proposition 8, reserving marriage licenses for 'a man and a woman' in the California Constitution, has been dashed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
"Sexual behavior does not constitute a civil right, but the Supreme Court has done vast damage to man-woman marriage, the foundation of the natural family." said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, which promotes moral virtues for the common good.
"The high court's refusal to correct the unconstitutional rulings of lower-court judges and the dereliction of duty by constitution-bound state officials demonstrates that not only is natural, man-woman marriage no longer respected but neither is our republic and system of written laws," Thomasson said.
"Because the high court didn't care about protecting natural marriage or even the initiative process, they have allowed unnatural, homosexual 'marriages' to resume in California as role models for children," Thomasson said. "Today, marriage, children, and the rule of law all suffer."
"Because they refused to do their sworn, constitutional duties to defend in court Prop. 8 as approved by the People of California, Jerry Brown, Kamala Harris, and Arnold Schwarzenegger have infamously created false, homosexual 'marriages' in California, which will greatly confuse children," Thomasson said.
"The justices had a simple question before them, and the answer is also simple when you abide by the written Constitution," Thomasson explained. "First, marriage is not in the U.S. Constitution. Second, the 14th Amendment, which is not about marriage but about race, and not about couples but individuals, does not apply to Prop. 8. Third, the 10th Amendment recognizes states have powers that are not federal powers and that are not prohibited by the Constitution. Fourth, Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution guarantees a republican form of government to each state, where a written constitution is the supreme law of the state. Fifth, the California Constitution contains Proposition 8 as Article 1, Section 7.5. Therefore, Prop. 8 should have been upheld."
Thomasson has been defending marriage rights for man-woman marriage since 1994. Together with Liberty Counsel, SaveCalifornia.com filed an amicus brief supporting Prop. 8 with the U.S. Supreme Court.
