So Much for Democracy!

A three-judge panel of The United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has made its unprecedented ruling, striking down California’s Proposition 8, which had democratically defined marriage in this state as being between one man and one woman. In fact, sixty-three million Americans in 31 state elections have voted on marriage, and 63 percent voted to preserve marriage as the timeless, universal, unique union between husband and wife. Now—for the first time ever—this ultra-liberal 9th Circuit Court has found a “right” to same-sex marriage in the United States Constitution!

Alliance Defense Fund Senior Counsel Brian Raum has said:

“We are not surprised that this Hollywood-orchestrated attack on marriage–tried in San Francisco–turned out this way. But we are confident that the expressed will of the American people in favor of marriage will be upheld at the Supreme Court. Every pro-marriage American should be pleased that this case can finally go to the U.S. Supreme Court. The ProtectMarriage.com legal team’s arguments align with every other federal appellate and Supreme Court decision on marriage in American history.”

Let us continue to pray and believe that God will yet “protect and preserve religious liberty, the sanctity of life, marriage, and the family” in this great land.
