The ruling for gay marriage to be a labeled a “right”and a “freedom”  under the Constitution of the United States of America is an abomination in the eyes of God. It is He who will rightfully judge this nation. We have perverted the laws of God.  His justice will prevail. We can now only appeal to His mercy!   MB

WASHINGTON — Justice Antonin Scalia has really had it.

Scalia’s dissent in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, which officially made marriage equality the law of the land, runs for eight pages, but amounts largely to a big, arms-crossed “harumph.”

“I join THE CHIEF JUSTICE’s opinion in full. I write separately to call attention to this Court’s threat to American democracy,” he begins.

“The substance of today’s decree is not of immense personal importance to me,” he offers. “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. Until the courts put a stop to it, public debate over same-sex marriage displayed American democracy at its best.”

“But the Court ends this debate, in an opinion lacking even a thin veneer of law,” he opines. “Buried beneath the mummeries and straining-to-be-memorable passages of the opinion is a candid and startling assertion: No matter what it was the People ratified, the Fourteenth Amendment protects those rights that the Judiciary, in its ‘reasoned judgment,’ thinks the Fourteenth Amendment ought to protect.”

Scalia even offered what may be the first legal citation of a hippie.

“‘The nature of marriage is that, through its enduring bond, two persons together can find other freedoms, such as expression, intimacy, and spirituality,'” he quoted from the majority opinion before adding, “Really? Who ever thought that intimacy and spirituality [whatever that means] were freedoms? And if intimacy is, one would think Freedom of Intimacy is abridged rather than expanded by marriage. Ask the nearest hippie.”

HuffPost went to look for the first hippie we could find, per Scalia’s instructions. Neil Cousins, a 61-year-old man from Alexandria protesting nuclear weapons outside the White House, said he had come to this very park in the 1970s for pot smoke-ins, but added that there really haven’t been hippies around since the Grateful Dead stopped touring. He was nonetheless willing to offer a judgment on Scalia’s assertion that marriage abridges rather than expands intimacy. “I’ve known it to have both reactions,” he ruled. “Scalia is a big knucklehead.”

In Scalia’s dissent, he also bemoaned the tone of the majority opinion.

“The opinion is couched in a style that is as pretentious as its content is egotistic,” he writes. “If, even as the price to be paid for a fifth vote, I ever joined an opinion for the Court that began: ‘The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity,’ I would hide my head in a bag. The Supreme Court of the United States has descended from the disciplined legal reasoning of John Marshall and Joseph Story to the mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie.”

“And to allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than no taxation without representation: no social transformation without representation,” he writes. “But what really astounds is the hubris reflected in today’s judicial Putsch.”

Each of the four opponents of the ruling wrote their own dissent but Scalia, opposing for every reason anybody could come up with, joined the three he didn’t write.

  1. This is only the beginning I think – the next step will be to make it a hate crime to refuse to marry a same-sex couple or to refuse them service under any circumstances. This is an utterly horrible ruling from the Supreme Court and just further opens the door if not rips the door off the hinges for God’s judgment to fall on the U.S. in a very big way.

    I am highly disappointed in these so-called judges that have decided same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. They are nothing more than progressive mouth pieces for the gay rights agenda.

    There is a reason that just about the entire world thought/felt that same-sex marriage was/is wrong in the past –
    1. God says it is wrong
    2. People just KNEW it was wrong – if it was not then same-sex marriage would have been an accepted practice since time began – it was not.

  2. You are so right, Greg. I keep referring to the verse in the book of Daniel when he saw a vision of a time in the future when “truth was thrown to the ground”. So bad was the sight of this world in that vision that Daniel took to his bed. He was appalled. Welcome to Daniel;’s vision. We are there. Sin and evil has always been with us but never to such a depth of utter depravity. Isaiah 53:6 tells us so aptly that “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. Everyone has turned to his own way of thinking on what is right. Only those who have surrendered to Christ understand that there is no life, no victory and no joy apart from the ways of God. There are not many ways to God. There is only One…..Christ Jesus.
