Supreme court ruling tramples Constitution, bible


By Mark Wassberg, Staff Writer

On June 26. 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of same sex marriage and passed it into law. But what right did the court have when the laws of marriage are enforced by states?
The argument was that the state and local governments in California and throughout the nation violated gay people’s constitutional right to marry. There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that gives the people a right to marry.
There has always been some type of moral-filled piece of legislation that stops people from marrying their family numbers, close-blood relatives and having two or three wives or husbands. It is called polygamy and people do go to jail for that.
It won’t surprise me at all to soon see marriage between family members, relatives marrying relatives or people having two or three wives or husbands at a time.
In some U.S. states it’s still against the law to marry your first cousin because of genetic, physical and mental deformities that can occur. During biblical times there was marriage between family members. Kings and queens in Egypt and throughout the world did marry family members to keep the royal bloodline pure, but most their offspring died from severe genetic disorders.
America was founded under Christianity. That is why we have churches on just about every street corner. Marriage is a religious institution, but whatever happened to the separation of church and state?
Congress opens up with a prayer before every session. On the dollar bill it reads, ”In God We Trust” and what about “one nation under god.”
It was the Mormon Church and many other churches that help pass Proposition 8 banning same sex marriages in California, because of biblical teachings that forbid these types of activities and only supporting marriage between a man and a woman. Did it ever occur to you why people get married in the first place?
Marriage is a religious act between a male and female.
Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky, was jailed when she refused to issue a marriage license to same sex couples violating a federal court order.
It was her religious belief that convicted her not to issue these licenses and she stood by her religion, even though being prosecuted. Even Pope Francis supported her stand.
The first recorded marriage in history was between Adam and Eve and there are other reasons to marry in the book of Corinthians. Many years ago if you got your lover pregnant you married her for the sake of that child, so they could have a proper upbringing.
