Observers have yet to recognize the obvious: the liberal
justices on the Supreme Court are a batch of homophobic bigots who harbor
malice in their hearts toward homosexuals.
This is evident based on their very own reasoning. In the DOMA
ruling, they made it clear that every member of Congress who voted for DOMA,
and the Democrat president who signed it into law, denied special rights to
homosexuals for one reason and one reason only: their mean-spirited intent to
“disparage,” “injure,” “degrade,” “demean” and “humiliate” homosexuals.
Otherwise, said the Court, they would have been happy to accord
full marital status and benefits upon those who enter into sodomy-based
But the liberal justices, by their own lights, are as
malevolent and as full of malice as they accuse us of being. Why? Because they
granted full spousal benefits only to homosexual couples in 12 states.
Homosexual couples in the other 38 states just got hosed. They were denied, by
those who fancy themselves to be morally superior opponents of discrimination
in all its forms, the very rights they awarded to every other homosexual couple
in the rest of the country.
What could possibly explain this egregious and reprehensible
discrimination? Well, according to the paragons of tolerance themselves, the
only possible motive for denying sodomy-based marriages full benefits is an
intent to “disparage, injure, degrade, demean and humiliate” those of the
homosexual persuasion. This makes them reprehensible frauds and hypocrites,
preening as our moral betters when they are guilty by their own standards of
every accusation they throw at us.
Antonin Scalia, in an entirely appropriate and scathing
dissent, went a step further. By demonizing supporters of natural marriage as
they have, the liberal justices have demonized every values voter in America
just as Hitler did the Jews right before he started carting them off to the
Said Scalia, “It is one thing for a society to elect change; it
is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it
hostes humani generis, enemies of the
That phrase, “enemies of the human race,” sounded familiar. I
soon discovered with minimal research that this phrase was frequently found on
the lips of Adolf Hitler. It was his pet phrase to describe the Jews, and
became his justification for seeking to wipe them from the face of the earth.
Now Scalia is a pretty smart fella. This choice of phrase was
quite deliberate on his part. He is warning us here that Christians are now
being regarded as vermin and worse by our betters in the ruling class, and
therefore as little entitled to respect and humane treatment as the Jews of
The Court has done an exceedingly dangerous thing here which
completely undermines the rule of law. It has ruled that a law and its legal
protection may be discarded if the elites even suspect that the motives behind
such a law are impure. This is regardless of whether that law is
constitutional, has abundant rational reasons for its defense, and is a
perfectly appropriate expression of sound policy.
Thus the Court, despite making the pretense of upholding
states’ rights on marriage, has laid an IED, the animus bomb, underneath the
roadbed of every state marriage amendment.
The ACLU has already launched a $10 million campaign to attack
these state marriage amendments. Proponents of sodomy-based marriage will
challenge them in court, basing their accusations solely on the completely
mythical charge that the voters who enacted such protections for natural
marriage are vicious haters, and poof, the amendment vanishes into the ether of
The Court has declared that any support of natural marriage can
be dismissed as a form of bigotry. The most alarming feature of the Court’s
ruling is the danger this represents to religious liberty. The Court has tagged
God as a hateful bigot, Christians as homophobic hatemongers, and the Bible as
We as a nation must choose between the homosexual agenda and
religious liberty because we cannot have both. Every advance of the homosexual
agenda comes at the expense of religious liberty.
It’s time for values voters to armor up, not with the weapons
of the world and the flesh, but with the spiritual weapons of warfare which are
powerful in God for the pulling down of strongholds. All-out cultural war is
about to commence. Strap it on, boys.
