What Does Several Thousand Years Of Precedence Mean

What Does Several Thousand Years Of Precedence Mean

  Today the Supreme Court started to hear arguments about Prop Eight from California. They will also rule on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act.   All day I have been listening and watching the media on both sides of the isle. There is no doubt which side the reporters in the mainstream/drive-by/government run media line up on. Most of these people are progressive, hence they all believe that the homosexuals should be able marry. In politics and in life, the squeaky wheel gets the grease and it seems that the many constituency groups of the democrat party are the wheels which squeak the loudest. Judge Scalia took the lawyer who represents the the lobby against Prop 8 to the woodshed. Judge Sotamayer did much the same. She may be for gay marriage, but she’ll be hard pressed to find it in the constitution. Following the day of the arguments for and against Prop 8, there are several things which could happen. The high court could decide...

Redefining Marriage and Freedom

Redefining Marriage and Freedom

  As challenges to Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) are making their way to the Supreme Court, we are hearing more and more from people who argue for the redefinition of marriage on the basis of “freedom.”   The argument goes “if two consenting adults want to get married, who are you to say that this is wrong?” So now, they are using freedom to push the idea that marriage should be between people of the same gender.

Furthermore, freedom does not mean radically redefining the most important institution in all of society (for the reason that is allows society to perpetuate itself). People who want to redefine marriage are actually undercutting any pretense of freedom. There is a fundamental misunderstanding of the entire institution of marriage. Previously, people knew marriage was not merely a...

Black Conservative!

Black Conservative!

  Like yelling “fire” in a crowded theater, these two words together strike terror in the heart of liberalists.   Why? Because these fine people see the bigger picture of our federalist republic as envisioned by America’s founders and reject the appeal to selfish identity politics liberals use to garner their vote. If black conservative thought were to catch on in the black community, then its near-universal support for Democrats would evaporate. The other day Jake Tapper at CNN had the courage to approach Dr. Ben Carson. He asked, “why do you think there are so few African-American conservatives?” Dr. Carson’s answer was perfect: “I actually know quite a few of them but I think, you know, there has developed a culture where one party in particular tends to be seen as the one that is protecting you, that is protecting your rights, and that happens to be the Democratic Party for many people in the African American community. What I really would like to aim toward is a situation...
