California Pro-Family Leader Responds to Prop. 8 Ruling
Thomasson: "Natural marriage, voter rights, the Constitution, and our republic called the United States of America have all been dealt a terrible blow."
TV CLIP: Thomasson says Judge Walker has "smashed the Constitution"
Sacramento, California -- In response to today's ruling on California's Proposition 8 by U.S. Judge Vaughn Walker, SaveCalifornia.com President Randy Thomasson, a longtime defender of marriage rights for only one man and one woman, has issued the following statement:
"Natural marriage, voter rights, the Constitution, and our republic called the United States of America have all been dealt a terrible blow. Judge Walker has ignored the written words of the Constitution, which he swore to support and defend and be impartially faithful to, and has instead imposed his own homosexual agenda upon the voters, the parents, and the children of California. This is a blatantly unconstitutional ruling because marriage isn't in the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution guarantees that state policies be by the people, not by the judges, and also supports states' rights, thus making marriage a state jurisdiction. It is high time for the oath of office to be updated to require judicial nominees to swear to judge only according to the written words of the Constitution and the original, documented intent of its framers. As a Californian and an American, I am angry that this biased homosexual judge, in step with other judicial activists, has trampled the written Constitution, grossly misused his authority, and imposed his own agenda, which the Constitution does not allow and which both the people of California and California state authorities should by no means respect."
Background: Aug. 4 morning statement -- Homosexual Judge Vaughn Walker has already shown his bias
