“Nothing. . . authorizes judges to redefine marriage for the Nation. . .”

U.S. Senator Cruz speaks to members of the Texas Federation of Republican Women in San Antonio, TexasMY MAN on courts, the 14th Amendment, and Gay Marriage

“It is beyond dispute that when the 14th Amendment was adopted 146 years ago, as a necessary post-Civil War era reform, it was not imagined to also mandate same-sex marriage, but that is what the Supreme Court is implying today. The Court is making the preposterous assumption that the People of the United States somehow silently redefined marriage in 1868 when they ratified the 14th Amendment,” he said.

“Nothing in the text, logic, structure, or original understanding of the 14th Amendment or any other constitutional provision authorizes judges to redefine marriage for the Nation. It is for the elected representatives of the People to make the laws of marriage, acting on the basis of their own constitutional authority, and protecting it, if necessary, from usurpation by the courts.”

  1. Good I hope they can ban it and allow DEMOCRACY to actually happen. People still oppose this garbage, including mellenials. Despite polling they keep using from like year ago, support for homosexual marriage has dropped from it’s all time high in February of 2014 at 59% support to 44% support and 39% opposed and 15% no comment, http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/gay-south-florida/article9328463.html. I think that 15% no comment is because they are scared TO DEATH OF BEING THROWN IN JAIL OR LOSING THEIR JOB OVER THIS DEVIANT CRAP LIKE MANY HAVE. That is just how Satan rolls, fascism. So if you haven’t thrown your lot in with Satan yet, he will stop at nothing until the lord destroys him, to prevail.

  2. The poll you cited says no such thing. Gay equality in marriage has never had a 59% approval rating. Don’t tell lies on this blog, please–or learn to read closely. Your religious beliefs are irrelevant to equality and freedom. If Satan exists, she is most likely not a fascist. She might be a Christianist, but that’s about all. Please, also, use 100% correct grammar for commenting here.
