Not that states actually matters much...

Not that states actually matter much…

In June of 2013, the Supreme Court’s liberals declared that the Defense of Marriage Act, which was passed by Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton, was unconstitutional, because, as they said, the power of the individual state in defining marriage is “of central relevance”, and the decision to grant same-sex couples the right to marry is “of immense import.” Basically, it’s the state, and not the federal government, which should determine what marriage is and license accordingly.

Two years to the day later, those same liberals overrode those immensely important marriage laws in 14 states and proclaimed same-sex marriage from the federal bench.

If you celebrate these rulings, and if you’ve ever been a proponent of power to the people, or you’ve ever put forth the idea that every vote should count, you either have not been paying attention, or have no idea at all what those phrases even mean.

I got our first e-mail listener feedback from what I talked about last episode, regarding whether or not legalizing same-sex marriage necessarily leads to polygamy. I thought it had to, but one listener took on my challenge to come up with a scenario where it didn’t have to happen. We had an e-mail conversation, and I’m highlighting that this time.

And remember, you, too, can have your feedback on the show. Let’s make this more of a conversation.

The media weren’t the only ones ignoring the Kermit Gosnell abortion doctor story. For years before he got caught, many, many other people ignored him as well, even though they knew what he was doing.

The housing bubble, anyone remember it? That’s when people who would not have otherwise been able to get credit to buy a house were given it anyway because the government pressured banks to do it. Everybody gets a home, and if you’re against this policy, you clearly hate the poor. Then the bubble burst, defaults were rampant, the economy tanked, and more government programs had to be thought up to save us from the previous government programs. So what does Obama want to do now?

Conservatives who made the case that polygamy would follow same-sex marriage used to be ridiculed. Now, it’s liberals making the case. Question: Do you think that same-sex marriage won’t lead to legalized polygamy? If so, I’d like to hear from you, but you’ve got your work cut out for you.

Just two topics this time around. I got a little wordy.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is another international treaty to come out of that august body that, while it is ostensibly one with good intentions, allows the UN to override national sovereignty. Want to homeschool your disabled child? A UN committee might decide otherwise.

In 2004, President of the Human Right Campaign Cheryl Jacques was asked why her groups advocacy for same-sex marriage would not lead to polygamy. Her well-considered answer was, “I don’t approve of that.” Well, what she doesn’t approve of has happened, and the liberal paper The Guardian is asking about the next stop down the slippery slope; why not marriage of 3, or 4, or 17? Slippery slope arguments are worthless, except when they aren’t.
