Handing the LGBT community and Barack Obama a victory, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5 to 4 decision in favor of gay marriage making it legal in all 50 states.
The ruling permits same sex couples to marry in all 50 states and “states must perform same sex marriages. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the opinion and Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the dissent, joined by Justices Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas.”
Anyone who thought Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s dissent in Thursday’s Obamacare—which Scalia now calls ‘SCOTUScare’— was intense should read his dissent in Friday’s 5-4 ruling mandating same-sex marriage in all 50 states. In fact, Fox News’ Andrew Napolitano said that Scalia’s Obamacare dissent ‘looks like a Christmas card’ compared to his rebuke of the majority today….
Scalia doesn’t hold back in his criticisms of the Supreme Court and the “wisdom” of five robed members of our federal government.
We pulled out a dozen of the best quotes from his blistering disagreement with the SCOTUS majority (emphasis added):
No. 1: SCOTUS Is a ‘Threat’
‘I write separately to call attention to this Court’s threat to American democracy.’
No. 2: Our New Rulers
‘[I]t is not of special importance to me what the law says about marriage. It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact—and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of the Court’s claimed power to create ‘liberties’ that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves…..’
While we’re on the subject, check out Grumpy Opinions post entitled, “5 Justices Just Trashed The Accumulated Knowledge of Mankind, and the Constitution.” Definitely a worth read (excerpt below).
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as ‘normal, natural, healthy.’ The 45 Communist Goal Necessary To Destroy America.
George Washington, our first President viewed “sodomy” or homosexual relations with “Abhorrence and Detestation.”
As a member of the Virginia Legislature, Thomas Jefferson proposed a law that would punish homosexual males by castration and a half inch hole drilled through the nose cartridge of lesbians. His colleagues disagreed, hanging was faster and cheaper. When our Constitution was written homosexuality was a hanging offense in all thirteen states. For a brief period Pennsylvania experimented with short prison terms, it took them less than 20 years to go back to hanging them.
Needless to say, back then, a discussion about gay marriage wouldn’t have ended well for supporters of the idea….
Finally, Progressives are doing what they do best when a Black person refuses to tend the fields of their plantation. Clarence Thomas is trending on twitter courtesy of foul-mouthed, racists, many self-loathing petards all too thrilled to tote that barge and lift that bail on their Progressive slave master’s plantation.
