Judge Vaughan Walker’s ruling against Californian’s recently passed Proposition 8 was, at the very least, disingenuous, rife with inaccuracies and personal opinion.
He stated, “Plaintiffs have demonstrated by overwhelming evidence that Proposition 8 violates their due process and equal protection rights and that they will continue to suffer these constitutional violations until state officials cease enforcement of Proposition 8. California is able to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, as it has already issued 18,000 marriage licenses to same-sex couples and has not suffered any demonstrated harm as a result.
"Because Proposition 8 is unconstitutional under both the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses, the court orders entry of judgment permanently enjoining its enforcement; prohibiting the official defendants from applying or enforcing Proposition 8 and directing the official defendants that all persons under their control or supervision shall not apply or enforce Proposition 8. The clerk is DIRECTED to enter judgment without bond in favor of plaintiffs and plaintiff-intervenors and against defendants and defendant-intervenors pursuant to FRCP 58.”
Overwhelming evidence is disingenuous in its very magnitude. Under the Constitution there are only FOUR rights RETAINED BY all citizens: RELIGION; FREEDOM of speech; PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY; PETITION. Further, The Constitution of the State of California states without equivocation:
ARTICLE 1 DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
SECTION 1. All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.
Judge Wright has unquestionably overstated perceived harms done to plaintiffs by the enforcement of the will of the people as presented in Proposition 8.
A homosexual, activist Judge should have by law, practice and good common sense, recused himself from participation in this case. He, along with his like-minded LGBT activists, have every right to petition for redress of a perceived wrong. Judge Wright by any stretch of the imagination lacks standing to rule on the merits of Proposition 8. The Ninth Circuit Court must nullify and reverse Judge Wright’s injunction.
Though the act of Sodomy between consenting adults has been decriminalized throughout the United States, our Judeo-Christian Ethical code still holds fast to God’s decree that Man shall not lie with man nor with animals. How many homosexuals are being discriminated against? According to http://www.adherents.com/adh_dem.html the percentage of the US population adhering to the LGBT lifestyle is 1.51 % or around 4.3 Million. Does this minuscule number of dissenters warrant the deference of 300 Million?
Does ‘coming out of the closet’ make a homosexual a ‘better’ person? Are they then more valuable members of society? Are they then simply more notorious and is that a virtue? The vociferous claim to some fictional ‘right’ to enjoy the procreational state of marriage is a blatant and arrogant posture. The fallout of this worldwide ‘look-at-me-culture’ promises to be more disastrous that that from ‘Little Boy’ in 1945. However, this time around, our servicemen and women will be the victims.
As a retired military officer, I speak from first-hand observation and knowledge. Here are some specifics: While serving in India during WW II, one of our naïve, young and vulnerable company cooks was seduced by an admitted (post facto) homosexual. The victim ended up serving five and one-half years in Leavenworth. The homosexual predator was given a less than honorable discharge and returned to the USA.
In another case, in 1948, a Regular Army Corporal offered to transport, in his private vehicle, three brand new recruits cross country from Fort Ord, California to Carlisle Barracks, PA. During the trip and somewhere in Middle America, this Corporal threatened to abandon the three recruits unless they submitted to his perverse sexual desires. The Corporal was later court-martialed, dishonorably discharged, stripped of all decorations and awards and unceremoniously escorted from Camp Gordon, GA in early 1949.
All the foregoing and much more was submitted to BH Obama; The Chairman of the JCS, Adm. Mullen; C/S Army, Gen Casey and the other chiefs as well as to Senator Carl Levin, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
I think it is perfectly safe to conjecture that homosexuals have the basic rights with which God blessed humanity, but none more than that. My considered advice to those who choose a life style far different from the norm would be, go for it, leave the rest of us in peace and simply shut up about it. We really don’t care how you behave in private, singularly or collectively; but rest assured we view you as a royal pain with your crybaby whimpering and that arrogant in-your-face attitude. Persist in your collective whining and foolish litigation and the greater society will ultimately make your live a living hell. We are fed up with your child-like antics and juvenile behavior.
