Marriage, MLK, and SCOTUS

Marriage, MLK, and SCOTUS

We found out Friday afternoon that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will take up the issue of marriage and its definition. Long story short, here’s what it could mean for the citizens of the United States:

1) Since the court will rule on the power of the states to ban so-called same sex marriage, the result could be that people in their states will no longer have the power to vote for the definition of marriage to be between one man and one woman.

2) Through the court’s ruling, they can force unnatural marriage upon every state and every individual in the nation.  

Here is a video recapping my thoughts:

Many legal prognosticators believe SCOTUS will “rule” to overturn the majority of states’ constitutions, and try to force so-called “same-sex marriage” on all 50 states.

On MLK Jr.’s Holiday, we recognize his wisdom that, should SCOTUS render an opinion not in line with natural law, we should not recognize or obey it.  As MLK Jr. said in his  “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,”

“One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘an unjust law is no law at all.’  …  How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas:  An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.” 

Clearly, a law or court opinion recognizing so-called “same-sex marriage” as equivalent to procreative marriage violates natural law, the moral law, and the eternal law of God.

We will likewise urge our next President to consider whether or not to enforce such an unnatural and unjust opinion, should it happen.  We will be asking candidates, if elected, whether they will be in favor of asking over 30 states to violate their own Constitutions, by requiring them to issue so-called “same-sex marriage” licenses.

While SCOTUS is the Supreme Court, it is not the Supreme Being, or even the Supreme branch of our government.  Thomas Jefferson and others said it was the weakest branch, since it has no power of the purse, or of the military.  It’s past time to politely reject unjust SCOTUS opinions, and govern this country according to the Declaration of Independence’s legal foundation of  “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”

You might be asking, “What can I do?”  The simple answer is PRAY. Pray diligently, often, and specifically for the hearts and minds of the nine Supreme Court Justices who will be making this historic ruling.
