In 1779 when Jefferson became governor of Virginia, he introduced into the state legislature a package of bills including one on marriage;
Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Vol.1, 556,”A bill annulling the marriages prohibited by Leviticus Law and appointing the mode for solemnizing lawful marriage”
It seems pretty clear here, that the SCOTUS jurists didn’t find or use any precept from 250 years of American government or history, when they redefined the definition of marriage for us in 2015. Oh, well! As I’ve said, SCOTUS has bankrupted itself with wild decisions, made outside of their authority, based on imaginary precepts, poor jurisprudence, fear of cultural repercussions and faulty interpretations. We need to get a rope on them, throw them, tie their feet together and let the people vote again, and the legislators legislate.
The Supreme Court of the US has bipassed God given rights and has overstepped its authority more than once and invented rights that don’t exist to increase its reach. For example;
-The right to outlaw prayer in schools doesn’t exist – 1963
-The right to outlaw God and the Bible from the schools does not exist- 1941
-The right to make atheism the default state religion doesn’t exist – a result of above rulings- and Darwinian indoctrination –
-The right to keep slaves doesn’t exist (1857, Dred Scot SCOTUS ruling legalizing slavery)
-The right to kill prenatal infants does not exist – 1973-prenatal infanticide ruled as legal-
-The redefinition of marriage, ignoring 250 years of American precepts- 2015- SCOTUS found the right to redefine marriage for an entire nation-
Not a great track record- unless you’re a Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin or Engels or Trotsky fan.
