State Marriage Laws Are Constitutional. Judges Should Respect Them.
Judges seem to lose the ability to read the constitution when they get their gavel.
Check it out:
Yet another judge has struck down a state constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman. These rulings claim that the equal protection of the law requires the redefinition of marriage. It does not. State laws that reflect the truth about marriage are constitutional.
U.S. District Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen discarded the votes of 57 percent of Virginians as she struck down Virginia’s 2006 constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of man and woman. Allen wrote, “Gay and lesbian individuals share the same capacity as heterosexual individuals to form, preserve and celebrate loving, intimate and lasting relationships.” But this assertion about equality fails to address the question of what marriage is.
Equality demands that we treat in the same ways things that are the same. But a same-sex relationship is fundamentally different from a marriage. No same-sex union can produce a child. And no same-sex relationship can provide a child with a mother and a father.
