I can’t be sure, but it looks like the Supreme Court is about to rule in favor of same-sex marriage. In doing so, it will be declaring the Supreme Court to be a new Olympus made up of a plurality of gods
For decades Supreme Court justices have been working for self-deification. Catherine Drinker Bowen‘s fictionalized biography of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Yankee from Olympus, wasn’t all that fictional.
“Holmes helped move American legal thinking towards legal realism, as summed up in his maxim: ‘The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience.’ Holmes espoused a form of moral skepticism and opposed the doctrine of natural law, marking a significant shift in American jurisprudence. As he wrote in one of his most famous decisions, his dissent in Abrams v. United States (1919), he regarded the United States Constitution as ‘an experiment, as all life is an experiment’ and believed that as a consequence ‘we should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe and believe to be fraught with death.’”
The constitutional experiment is over. Five unelected judges now rule on high creating rights ex nihilo, out of nothing, actually, like the birth of Athena, out of the head of the fictional god Zeus.
If five judges can redefine marriage, then they can redefine anything and everything. Seven of them redefine the status of unborn children in a 1973 decision. They found the right to kill unborn babies in the “penumbra,” the shadows, of the Constitution.
