Judges around the country have become a law unto themselves. There were five church-going judges in Alabama who ruled that sodomy marriages are constitutional. Their Christianity made no difference in their lives. I don’t know who to blame, the churches they attend who separate the Christian faith from politics (and nearly everything else) or the law schools they attended that do the same thing.
U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II ruled that a Kentucky law prohibiting same-sex marriages is unconstitutional. He based his argument on the 14th Amendment, an amendment that has nothing to do with same-sex anything.
That’s why you will find in every state Constitution a reference to God or Providence as the source of our freedoms. For example, the preamble of Kentucky’s state constitution written in 1891 states, “We, the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky are grateful to Almighty God for the civil, political and religious liberties we enjoy, and invoking the continuance of these blessings, do ordain and establish this Constitution.”
Judge Heyburn declared in his ruling, “In America, even sincere and long-held religious beliefs do not trump the constitutional rights of those who happen to have been out-voted.” He most likely took his oath of office with his hand on a Bible and stated, “So help me God.” Moreover, he’s begging the question by asserting what he must prove that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. The framers certainly didn’t think so in the 18th century, or in the 19thcentury when the 14th Amendment was drafted.
What is the source of the marital relationship? It’s certainly not in the atheistic worldview of atheism. It’s a creational ordinance ordained by God.
