Justice Kennedy “y la tremenda corte”

(My new Babalu post)

Over the last 48 hours, our Supreme Court has turned into “La tremenda corte”, as John Hindenraker posted:

“Two hundred twenty-four years after the Constitution was ratified, Anthony Kennedy and four loyal Democrats have discovered, hidden somewhere in its provisions, a right to gay marriage. This so-called right, deemed “fundamental” by the five-justice majority, was undreamed of until a few years ago. If you want to read the decision, it is here.

Yesterday’s Obamacare decision told us that we do not live under the rule of law.

Today’s gay marriage decision tells us we do not live in a democracy.

These are dark days.”

With all due respect to those who support same sex marriage, this is not the way to do it.    It would have been a lot more legitimate to go through the state legislatures and voters.   (Ironically, the Court’s decision stopped what was already underway in many states)

Again, honest people can disagree about same sex marriage.    I happen to believe that marriage between a man and a woman is best, as centuries of civilization have proven.    At the same time, I’d be willing to accept same sex marriage if it came about by the will of the people.

Last, but not least, this Supreme Court decision gives many Democrats a victory that they were never willing to fight for in the political arena.

It’s weird.   At least “La tremenda corte” was a comedy.
