It wasn’t that long ago that President Obama and Hillary Clinton opposed homosexual marriage. You and I know that they did this to get elected.
How things have changed. To oppose same-sex marriage is now thought to be a criminal offense. Michael McCann of Sports Illustrated, a writer with a legal background who specializes in sports law, compares people who oppose same-sex marriage to convicted criminals. If homosexuals had their way, any person who opposes same-sex marriage would not be permitted to hold public office.
Every state that has voted on same-sex marriage has upheld traditional marriage. This has not stopped judges from nullifying these votes in various states. For example, voters in Michigan “passed a marriage amendment in 2004 that made it unlawful to conduct or recognize same-sex ‘marriages’ in the state. It was passed with 59 percent of the vote, or nearly 2.7 million ballots cast in the favor of the measure.”
Homosexuals have tried to hitch their wagon to the civil rights moment. It’s been working because blacks have been silent. But no more:
“A coalition of black pastors filed an amicus brief in court on Wednesday asking that it overturn a lower court’s decision that declared Michigan’s marriage amendment unconstitutional.
“The Thomas More Law Center filed the brief on behalf of 110 African American pastors throughout Michigan and Ohio, who represent millions of Christians and other religious groups throughout the state.
“As previously reported, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman, nominated to the bench by then-president Ronald Reagan, struck down Michigan’s same-sex ‘marriage’ ban this past March, declaring that the state’s constitutional amendment violates the federal constitution.
“‘Many Michigan residents have religious convictions whose principles govern the conduct of their daily lives and inform their own viewpoints about marriage,” he wrote. ‘Nonetheless, these views cannot strip other citizens of the guarantees of equal protection under the law.’”
