A Federal judge in San Francisco yesterday ruled that same-sex marriage is a Constitutionally-protected right under the 14th Amendment's Due Process and Equal Protection clauses. Forget the fact that the ban is part of an amendment to the state's constitution, adopted by the people of the state. This has been an issue where Federal courts, including the Supreme Court (Lawrence v Texas regarding sodomy), have been flat wrong over the last decade. In Lawrence v Texas, Justice Scalia wrote in the dissent that the Supreme Court's decision regarding sodomy and the 14th Amendment would lead down the path of legally arguing in favor of same-sex marriage, which was the result of yesterday's decision in California.
The 14th Amendment has nothing to do with sex -- homosexual or heterosexual! The Left continues to throw out the phrase "privacy in the bedroom" as a legal argument, which is completely ridiculous. You can't kill someone in the privacy of your bedroom or take drugs in the privacy of your bedroom. Yesterday's decision was nothing more than another step in the Federal Government's continual push to take away our ability as citizens to decide how much it can control our lives. At some point, "We the People" have to stand up and decide who is going to decide our future -- Federal judges or us. Next stop on this issue for California is the Supreme Court. Sadly, previous rulings on this topic by the high court are pointing to a 5-4 decision in favor of same-sex marriage.
