Supreme Court justices warned to leave marriage alone

'This is a line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross'

Thousands of signers of a new marriage pledge, including leaders of Christian organizations representing millions, are warning the justices on the U.S. Supreme Court to leave marriage alone.

No “redefinition.” No “gay marriage.” No nothing.

“We will view any decision by the Supreme Court [overturning traditional marriage] or any court the same way history views the Dred Scott and Buck v. Bell decisions. Our highest respect for the rule of law requires that we not respect an unjust law that directly conflicts with higher law,” says a Marriage Pledge that was assembled by Keith Fournier, a Catholic deacon who is editor of Catholic Online, and Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel.

“A decision purporting to redefine marriage flies in the face of the Constitution and is contrary to the natural created order. As people of faith we pledge obedience to our Creator when the state directly conflicts with higher law.

“We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross this line.”

The justices are scheduled on Tuesday to hear arguments in a case that was elevated from the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. That decision said that residents of states have the right to define marriage for themselves, and the judges would not do it.

But that flies in the face of the pro-homosexual activism that has enveloped America over recent years, and even the agenda pursued by Barack Obama in the White House, given his pursuit of open homosexuality in the U.S. military and more.

Sign a petition has been created in support of ordinances that allo...

“We stand united together in defense of marriage,” the pledge states. “Make no mistake about our resolve. While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the common good that this is a line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross.”

The warning to classify an adverse decision regarding marriage along with Dred Scott and Buck brings to the fore of the argument the fact that the Supreme Court has, in fact, released decisions in the past that properly horrify contemporary Americans.

In Dred Scott, an earlier generation of justices found “blacks are inferior human beings.” And in Buck, the ruling allowed forced government sterilization of specific individuals because “three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

Thousands of Americans have signed onto the pledge, including those with considerable followings, such as Franklin Graham of Samaritan’s Purse, Gov. Mike Huckabee, James Dobson of Family Talk Action, Sen. Rick Santorum, Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America. Rich Bott of Bott Radio Network, Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Harbinger,” Don Wildmon of American Family Association, Richard Land of the Southern Evangelical Seminary, Judson Phillips of Tea Party Nation, and more.

Some of the leaders’ constituencies can be numbered in the hundreds of thousands or even millions.

The pledge makes its case clearly:

“We stand together in defense of marriage and the family and society founded upon them. While we come from a variety of communities and hold differing faith perspectives, we are united in our common affirmation of marriage.

“On the matter of marriage, we stand in solidarity. We affirm that marriage and family have been inscribed by the Divine Architect into the order of Creation. Marriage is ontologically between one man and one woman, ordered toward the union of the spouses, open to children and formative of family. Family is the first vital cell of society, the first government, and the first mediating institution of our social order. The future of a free and healthy society passes through marriage and the family.

“Marriage as existing solely between one man and one woman precedes civil government. Though affirmed, fulfilled, and elevated by faith, the truth that marriage can exist only between one man and one woman is not based on religion or revelation alone, but on the Natural Law, written on the human heart and discernible through the exercise of reason. It is part of the natural created order. The Natural Law is what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., referred to as a higher law or a just law in his famous Letter from Birmingham Jail.

“Marriage is the preeminent and the most fundamental of all human social institutions. Civil institutions do not create marriage nor can they manufacture a right to marry for those who are incapable of marriage. Society begins with marriage and the family.

“We pledge to stand together to defend marriage for what it is, a bond between one man and one woman, intended for life, and open to the gift of children.”

Co-author Mat Staver wrote at Stream.org that, “I argued that a bad court decision might require civil disobedience. I still pray that won’t be necessary. I pray the Supreme Court will allow states to recognize natural marriage. That would be a great victory for truth, but it would not end the fight. Neither the Supreme Court nor any state has the authority to redefine the natural created order of marriage. Marriage is no more a state’s rights issue than is slavery or the law of gravity.”

“This is the redline we will not cross,” Staver wrote. “While no one wants this conflict, we have no choice but to resist an unjust law, particularly one that will force us to participate in acts that directly conflict with the Natural and Revealed Law.”

He continued, “How will peaceful resistance be manifested? In many different ways depending on our individual circumstances; but in every case, it should be peaceful and it should be resistance. For example, if a state commands a Christian adoption ministry to ignore the difference between a same-sex couple and a married husband and wife for purposes of adoption, the ministry should not comply and should not close its doors. It should not abandon its God-given call and mission to place children in homes with a mother and a father. Only in this way will the full truth of the conflict be seen. Only in this way will the naked injustice of the state’s coercive power be exposed.”

About two-thirds of the states already formalize “gay marriage,” and the Supreme Court decision is expected to nationalize whatever opinion is released. Most of the states that do recognize the status have been ordered by individual federal judges to allow for “gay weddings.”

In one state, Alabama, the state Supreme Court justices noted that they had as much power to interpret the Constitution as the federal judiciary and forbade their state officials from following the order of Judge Callie Granade.

The Alabama justices noted that the Supreme Court already ruled, just over a year ago, that decisions about regulating marriage belong to the states.

Other commentators have suggested it might be time for “pitchforks and torches” over the issue, and several judges forced out of office because of orders they conduct same-sex “marriages” are suing their state for violating their religious rights.

The attacks on Christian business owners by homosexuals who demand they violate their faith to provide various services already is in full swing across the U.S.

WND has compiled a “Big List of Christian Coercion” with dozens of cases in which Christians have been fined, threatened or penalized for recognizing the biblical definition of marriage.

WND reported longtime conservative leader Pat Buchanan urged Christians to fight the “LGBT fanatics” who are demanding they betray their faith, even if it means civil disobedience.

In an interview with WND, Buchanan, the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?” and other bestsellers, spoke on the controversy.

Buchanan forcefully condemned defeatism among social conservatives and rejected retreat or even compromise. Instead, the one-time presidential contender and Reagan White House aide urged Christians to put the laws of God above the laws of man.

“This battle can be won, but it cannot be won if we do not stand our ground and fight against this moral onslaught from the left,” he said. “The hill to stand on and fight on is the God-given natural right and the constitutional principle that people of faith may choose not to associate with those whose actions are abhorrent and whose lifestyle is insulting and offensive to that faith.”

Buchanan dismissed arguments that “gay”-rights activists are simply asking for political freedom or the same rights as any other citizen.

“The LGBT militants are not asking to be left alone,” he said. “They are demanding that we accept the morality of homosexuality and same-sex marriages, and manifest that acceptance, under pain of law and sanctions, in our daily lives.”

What’s America’s future going to be? Pat Buchanan offers his opinio...

Buchanan added: “As the Romans demanded of the Christians, the LGBT fanatics want us to burn incense to their gods. The answer is no. If it comes to civil disobedience, so be it.”

WND also reported a team of prominent Christian leaders worked on a statement to inform the public – including justices on the U.S. Supreme Court who soon will hear arguments on the issue – that they will engage in civil disobedience rather than follow a ruling that establishes homosexual marriage in the United States.

Well, this is beginning to look like a test, pitching the Supreme Court to declare itself either a Court of the People, or a Court of Extremism.    All my Life, I considered the Supreme Court as a lofty source of Justice.     In the last few years, my estimation of their judgment and fairness has faltered. Somewhere along the line, they have squandered their respect.

SCOTUS - bought and paid for by the NWO.

 And in Buck, the ruling allowed forced government sterilization of specific individuals because “three generations of imbeciles are enough>>>>>>>>>>>>>>That sounds like a good decision. Instead now we have about 10 generations of idiots voting.

Did I make a good point?

I have read the bible cover to cover, both old and new Testaments three times and am now reading it a fourth time. What the hell does being Jewish,baptist, Catholic, Methodist or any other Christian denomination have to do with allowing, supporting,advocating or otherwise trying to recognize same sex relationships including this latest effort of seriously mentally disturbed people of the same sex having the gall to force those of us who believe in the word of the one true God to accept same sex marriage as ok, right and the true believers  to support this blasphemous charade and even to glorify it through the sanctity of legal marriage. I noted that throught the bible even as Moses was receiving the commandments etched by God's own hand in the stone tablets the Jews were violating God's laws in every lacivious and perverted way. And though God punished them severely, eventually he gave them the opportunities time and again to repent. At no time that I can discern anywhere in either old or new testaments did God or his only son on earth ever revoke the admonition that for same sex person that engage in sexual acts be accepted or that the kings or other leaders over time be given leave to make it the law of the land, down to the present day. The advice to the Supreme Court to back away from this issue is not only sound advice by the multitudes in our country but in full and sound grounding in our Constitution. Nowhere in the Constitution does any right to engage and make legal the disgusting abominations stated by the one true God exist, nor does it give the President the right to impose it on our military. I do believe.  I do not accept that people are born with predilection to attraction to same sex let alone the desire to make it a permanent part of their lives. I do believe it is a learned act which stems from som seriously flawed social thought processes including politically correctness by some seriously mental midgets...or shoul I say seriously mentally challenged scumbags. 

That said This Marine has been married four times. Twice to my first wife once before a Justice of the Peace and Once by our Parish Priest. That marriage lasted fifty years until her passing. My second and current wife of 8 years and I went through the exact same two marriages. How can Marriage be anything but between a loving man and woman.  Both my current wife and I have raised a total of eight wonderful children. God will not grace us with more but he is gracing our family with wonderful grandchildren and even a great grandchild ...how could two men or two women violating God's laws do likewise?  No Government, No court, and no group of deviant thinkers will ever make it right or legal..for long at least. 

This is a true story.

God was sitting with Moses dictating the Jewish Law. Eye to eye.

Moses dutifully and carefully wrote it down and distributed it.

Here is one thing God told Moses to write down, Leviticus 20:13...

13 “If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.

It is called "Mosaic Law" and was given to all Israel, including the Jewish people (tribe of Judah, one of the 12 tribes of Israel), and the mixed multitude of people with them. The same "Law" Yeshua (Jesus) came to uphold and teach the deeper meaning thereof - Love God with all your heart mind and strength and to love your fellow human and you love yourself, without compromising any other facets of the "Law" (Torah).

Is there anything worse than a capital offense???

Christians are being be-headed for their faith, even children.  The days of Noah are upon us, again, as fore-told.  Just how much further will it go before Judgment?  This ruling, in my opinion, would do it.  This, in this year of the Shemitah and 4 blood moons.....look to the heavens for signs.......

The Jewish financing of the Revolutionary War was timely and successful....around the time of Valley Forge I understand.  Are the Koch Brothers Jewish?  They must be, why else would the Democrats demonize them so much, but to keep them in line?

George Soros is Jewish as well; and ardent DNC supporter. Your point is?

I know.  I hear what you are saying.  Duly noted.  Wasn't even Saul Alinksy Jewish?  Not sure.  But, my point is, a good group of Jewish shipping financiers saved and/or helped finance the Revolutionary War at a crucial time, and may have insured the success of that war for our independence.  George Washington referred to America as the New Jerusalem, I have been told, and might have genetic ties to King David?  American fighter pilots in 1946 may have single handedly, so to speak, insured Israel's independence then.  Is......what goes around, comes around, a reality?  There has, in the past, been a relationship between Israel and America, that defies logic.  I say, in the past.  The future is yet to be determined with Obama at the helm.  So, my point is....military conflicts are expensive.  In the Civil War, or War between the States, the South had a far superior kill ratio, but, was grossly under financed..........and lost. Look at the big picture, and history, to keep from repeating it, my friend.  We are on the same side.....

Yes, Alinsky was of Jewish (non-genetic) descent but, apparently a non religious Jew and atheist.

Being Southerner by birth, I am used to the term "War of Northern Aggression". Oops, side note.

But I do see your point now, not sure of the ties of Washington to King David, but still see your point.

Blessings to you!
