the peter morrison report… anything for a vote.

Summary of this week’s report:
Radical federal judges are out of control. Judge Susan Bolton effectively invalidated Arizona’s SB 1070 with the stroke of her pen, and now an openly homosexual judge has ruled that it’s unconstitutional to ban homosexual “marriage.” If this ruling stands, it will do a lot more than legalize homosexual “marriage”; it will lead to an all out war on religious liberties in the name of civil rights. We must fight back against this act of judicial tyranny before it tramples our religious convictions underfoot.

Send a fax to Governor Rick Perry and tell him to side with us
against the judicial tyrants that threaten our rights and the
sovereignty of our state.

Full report:

In my last report, I discussed the lawsuit brought by the federal
government against Arizona’s SB 1070. Based on Judge Susan
Bolton’s remarks during the trial, I was optimistic that she was
going to rule in favor of Arizona’s right to defend itself from
invasion. Many pundits and commentators made the same prediction, but Bolton threw us a curve ball, basically invalidating SB 1070. In light of the ruling, Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu said: “Our own government has become our enemy and is taking us to court at a time when we need help.”

Sheriff Babeu is right, and unelected federal judges are a huge
part of the problem. The SB 1070 ruling is only the tip of the
iceberg. Federal judges are increasingly using their power to
overthrow the will of the people and impose their leftist views on the entire nation. Just a few days after Bolton’s ruling, another federal judge declared California’s ban on same-sex “marriage” unconstitutional. This outrageous ruling by an openly homosexual judge not only flies in the face of thousands of years of common sense and universal religious teachings, it also declared that the ban on same-sex marriage is based on nothing but irrational prejudice.

Many conservatives are confident that the ruling will be overturned on appeal, but this is by no means certain. Many experts believe a US Supreme Court ruling would come down to a 5-4 vote, with Justice Kennedy being the tie breaker. Kennedy has written several opinions strongly favoring the homosexual agenda; many believe he would use this case to become a “civil rights” hero, as he’s expected to be retiring soon and wants to leave a legacy. It’s quite possible that in the very near future a Supreme Court ruling could throw out all state laws against homosexual “marriage.”

We can’t look to the GOP establishment for any help. Vaughn
Walker, the judge who just invalidated Proposition 8, was appointed by George H.W. Bush. Supreme Court Justice Kennedy, who supports the homosexual agenda, was appointed by Ronald Reagan. One of the lawyers who brought the suit against Proposition 8 is Ted Olson, George Bush’s lawyer during the 2000 recount, who went on to become Bush’s Solicitor General. When California Attorney General Jerry Brown refused to defend Proposition 8 in court, California’s GOP
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger then refused to appoint anyone to defend it, and private parties had to intervene to make the case for traditional marriage. Even now, in the immediate aftermath of the ruling, Republican politicians are noticeably silent on the issue.

Even many conservatives seem to have given up this fight. If so, that’s simply because they don’t understand how high the stakes are. This same sex “marriage” battle isn’t simply about giving two men the right to play husband and wife, as disgusting as that is. What’s at stake is our very freedom to practice and live by our religious conviction that homosexuality is deeply immoral, and that marriage is only between a man and woman. Radical leftists pushing the homosexual agenda scoff at this, saying that no one is going to force a pastor to perform any wedding he doesn’t want to, but that’s a red herring. There’s a whole lot more to religious freedom than not being forced to perform same-sex “weddings”, and historically in America, when “civil rights” clash with religious liberty, religious liberty is the loser. As Maggie Gallagher, head of the National Organization for Marriage, says about an America
where same-sex “marriage” has become a civil right: “People of
faith will increasingly be treated like racists or bigots in the
public square; not only by public opinion, but by the law.”

This isn’t just speculation; Christians are already being punished
in many states for their views on homosexuality, and are being
forced to choose between their faith and their livelihood. In
California, a fertility specialist declined to give a lesbian
couple IVF treatments because of his conviction that homosexuality
is immoral. The lesbians sued, and the California Supreme Court
ruled unanimously that the doctor had violated their civil rights.
In New Mexico a wedding photographer turned down an offer to
photograph a lesbian “commitment ceremony” on religious grounds.
The lesbian couple sued, calling themselves victims of “hatred”:
“There was a shock and anger and fear. … We were planning a very
happy day for us, and we’re being met with hatred.” The NM Human
Right Commission agreed. They found the photographer guilty of
illegal discrimination and ordered her to pay nearly $7000 to the
“victims” to cover their legal fees.

In both California and Massachusetts, Catholic adoption agencies
have been forced to shut their doors after being ordered to allow
same-sex “couples” to adopt. In Ocean Grove, New Jersey, a
Christian group lost its tax exemption for refusing to host a
homosexual ceremony. In Mississippi, a mental health counselor was
fired because she didn’t want to counsel a patient about her
lesbian relationship, because she views homosexuality as a sin.
The counselor sued, but courts upheld her firing. Just a few days
ago yet another federal judge ruled that Eastern Michigan
University didn’t violate a young lady’s rights when it expelled
her from a graduate counseling course for refusing to affirm
homosexual conduct. In New York, Orthodox Jewish Yeshiva
University’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine was ordered to
allow same-sex “couples” to live in dormitories for married couples.

I could recite even more cases where the homosexual agenda has
already trampled on religious liberties in various states, but
there are far too many cases to describe here. If homosexual
“marriage” is ever declared the law of the land, these sorts of
cases won’t just be happening in a few states; they’ll be taking
place all over America. Radical homosexuals will sue lawyers,
insurance agents, bed and breakfast owners, caterers, wedding
planners, florists and anyone else who refuses to serve homosexual
“couples” on religious grounds. Christians colleges and
universities will be ordered to drop their ban on homosexual
relationships or lose their tax exemptions, just as Bob Jones
University lost its tax exemption back in 1984 for banning
interracial dating.

Christians and conservatives should be up in arms. If homosexual
marriage becomes the law of the land, religious freedom will be
dead. Evangelical Christians and other people with traditional
morals will be treated as if we’re members of the Ku Klux Klan for
refusing to “celebrate” something that was a crime in most states
just a few years ago. This should terrify every conservative in
America. Don’t just take my word for it. Listen to Chai Feldblum.
Not only is she one of the top legal experts in the country on the
interaction and tension between “civil rights” and religious
liberties, she is also Obama’s latest appointee to the Equal
Opportunity Employment Commission. Here’s what she wrote in a law
journal a few years ago:

“Just as we do not tolerate private racial beliefs that adversely
affect African-Americans in the commercial arena, even if such
beliefs are based on religious views, we should similarly not
tolerate private beliefs about sexual orientation and gender
identity that adversely affect LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, and
transgender] people.”

That’s the fate that awaits us if we don’t stand up to this ongoing
judicial tyranny – not even our “private beliefs” will be
tolerated. At some point we’ve got to take a stand and say enough
is enough, and we’re not going to take it anymore. As far as I’m
concerned, that time is now. It’s time to start saying no to these
unelected federal tyrants in robes. If millions of us don’t start
doing that right away, the game will soon be over, and we’ll be
paying fines and losing our jobs for refusing to treat a disgusting
perversion as the equal to holy matrimony. These federal judges
have gone too far, and it’s time to start calling these rulings by
their right name – treason.

Take action:

Send a fax to Governor Perry about these outrageous dictates by
federal judges. Ask him to do everything in his power to restore
our rights as a sovereign state which are being trampled on by the
federal government, from the White House to federal courthouses all
over America. Ask him to decide whose side he’s on – is he with
us, the people of America, or is he on the side of the tyrants in
DC?
