Scalia Dissent: “ 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 human race’.
So what happened at the Supreme Court today, is effectively the Justices NATIONALIZED homosexual marriage, and laid the groundwork to criminalize anyone who opposes it.
The seed of Christian persecution and criminalization of bible-believers by the State of Obama’s Amerika has now germinated with the SCOTUS ruling against the defense of Marriage Act as being unConstitutional.
The reasons of the prevailing argument winning the case for homosexuals is that anyone holding to beliefs that marriage is ordained of God to be reserved between a man and a woman, is somehow harmful to those who demand sexual perversion be legalized and forced into acceptance by all.
Couched in the clever language of the majority opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia states exactly what those who ruled against God and the American people mean with this ruling.
In a ripping dissent, Scalia says that Justice Anthony Kennedy and his colleagues in the majority have resorted to calling opponents of gay marriage “enemies of the human race.”
But to defend traditional marriage is not to condemn, demean, or humiliate those who would prefer other arrangements, any more than to defend the Constitution of the United States is to con- demn, demean, or humiliate other constitutions. To hurl such accusations so casually demeans this institution. In the majority’s judgment, any resistance to its holding is beyond the pale of reasoned disagreement. To question its high-handed invalidation of a presumptively valid statute is to act (the majority is sure) with the purpose to “dis- parage,” “injure,” “degrade,” “demean,” and “humiliate” our fellow human beings, our fellow citizens, who are homo- sexual. All that, simply for supporting an Act that did no more than codify an aspect of marriage that had been unquestioned in our society for most of its existence— indeed, had been unquestioned in virtually all societies for virtually all of human history. 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 human race.
Scalia says that the court’s holding – while limited to the Defense of Marriage Act – is a sure sign that the majority is willing to declare gay marriage a constitutional right.
It takes real cheek for today’s majority to assure us, as it is going out the door, that a constitutional requirement to give formal recognition to same-sex marriage is not at issue here—when what has preceded that assurance is a lecture on how superior the majority’s moral judgment in favor of same-sex marriage is to the Congress’s hateful moral judgment against it. I promise you this: The only thing that will “confine” the Court’s holding is its sense of what it can get away with.
And, he says, the holding will short circuit the debate over gay marriage that should have been carried out in the states.
In the majority’s telling, this story is black-and-white: Hate your neighbor or come along with us. The truth is more complicated. It is hard to admit that one’s political opponents are not monsters, especially in a struggle like this one, and the challenge in the end proves more than today’s Court can handle. Too bad. A reminder that disagreement over something so fundamental as marriage can still be politically legitimate would have been a fit task for what in earlier times was called the judicial temperament. We might have covered ourselves with honor today, by promising all sides of this debate that it was theirs to settle and that we would respect their resolution. We might have let the People decide.
But that the majority will not do. Some will rejoice in today’s decision, and some will despair at it; that is the nature of a controversy that matters so much to so many. But the Court has cheated both sides, robbing the winners of an honest victory, and the losers of the peace that comes from a fair defeat. We owed both of them better. I dissent.
Make no mistake, this will become one tool used to silence, shame, criminalize and persecute Christian and biblical beliefs in America. In fact, that is now already begun. I’ve witnessed what institutionalized persecution looks like in the third world. I recognize that is now being implemented here.
Remember the story of Sodom and Gommorah in the bible (Genesis 19:4-10). The men of the city came to Lot’s house and DEMANDED he hand out to them the two angels that had come so that they could gang rape them. Nothing would satisfy their lust and demand, and they became violent to force themselves upon Lot and his house to comply with their wickedness.
That nature of wickedness has not changed, and like the men of Sodom, the homosexuals are not going to rest in demanding we submit to their ways and/or be forced to accept it. Instead of a mob action at your door, they are a mob using government to criminalize your faith and have you declared and enemy of the state, an enemy of humanity if you dare refuse to submit.
