In the past 24 hours, I’ve defended natural, man-woman marriage on all 4 English-language TV stations in Sacramento, including this good interview on Fox40. SaveCalifornia.com’s strong voice for real marriage, natural genders, and what’s best for children was also seen and heard in Los Angeles, San Diego, the San Francisco Bay Area, and in various national media outlets.
After reading the U.S. Supreme Court transcript of the March 26 oral arguments, my strong belief is Proposition 8, California’s Marriage Amendment, will be decided by one man on the divided court — Anthony Kennedy.
The high court’s “swing vote” is a non-constructionist who believes in the notion of homosexual “rights,” not realizing that homosexuality is a behavior and not an immutable characteristic, which is required to be considered as a “suspect class” with “civil rights” protection.
Still, Kennedy seems to be a traditionalist in support of a married father and mother being in a child’s best interest, calls homosexual marriages “uncharted waters,” and doesn’t like the “odd rationale” of the Ninth Circuit, which deemed Prop. 8 “unconstitutional.”
Our Republic is on very shaky ground when judges don’t follow the plain words and original intent of the written Constitution. This is why I’ve been telling people that the Prop. 8 case, as much as it matters as a role model for children, is more about our Republic than about marriage.
For no People will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when Knowledge is diffusd and Virtue is preservd. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauchd in their Manners, they will sink under their own Weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.
