RERop-ed: The Last Straw

OK!  They’ve done it this time!  This is the straw that broke the camel’s back!  The Supreme Court of the United States actually had the effrontery to spit in the face of the American People and say, “We don’t give a damn what you think.  We are decreeing that y’all have got to let queers get “married” in Texas.

On Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States, in a 5-4 decision, overturned thousands of years of precedent, convention, and common sense by denying the purpose of and obviating the very meaning of the institution of marriage.

This abortion of jurisprudence dare not be allowed to stand.  It is a perversion of the fundamental precepts of propriety on which our civilization is based, and it is an insult and an affront to every civilized human being.

But equally – if not more – importantly, this egregious overreach denies the sovereign State of Texas the Constitutionally guaranteed right to decide for ourselves whether or not we want “married” queers in our State.

Without demeaning the moral implications of this blatant excursion beyond Constitutional law and common sense, it should be noted that the practical effects of the Supreme Court’s Friday perfidy will be negligible.  Queers, according to the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, comprise only 1.7 % of the population.  That’s about one queer to every fifty-eight normal people, which equates to a maximum of one queer “marriage” to every 58 actual marriages.

Of course, the negligibility of that statistic will be significantly diminished if one of ’em moves in next to me!

But as reprehensible as the concept of queer “marriage” may be, it’s important to realize that the legitimization of queer “marriage” was never the objective.  Queer “marriage” is a red herring.  It’s only a diversion to distract us from the true intent of the federal government – the nationalization of the United States.  And Texas –rightfully so – is the highest profile target in that federal assault.

This is just the latest sortie in the federal government’s continuing campaign – that began with Jane (Norma McCorvey) Roe vs (Dallas County District Attorney Henry) Wade – to reduce the sovereign State of Texas to a servile colony of Washington DC.

But this latest assault is clearly un-Constitutional, and is therefore illegal in the United States of America.  Judicial legislation of immorality is beyond the Constitutional authority of the Supreme Court, and of every other branch of the federal government.

This decision is, therefore, under the contract by which We the People created the federal government – the Constitution of the United States – null and void.  And we, as the sovereign State of Texas, must resist by refusing to honor this illegal abuse of authority within the borders of our State.

it is imperative that Attorney General Paxton apprise all State agencies that the Supreme Court’s illegal and ill-advised usurpation of State sovereignty and suppression of the will of the People is not legally binding within the borders of the sovereign State of Texas. We’ve got to take a stand somewhere.  And this is the place and the time.

As Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Dallas, recently said, “The Supreme Court, regardless of what they may think, is not the highest authority in the land.”

I can’t speak for the rest of “the land,” but they sure as hell ain’t the highest authority in Texas.
