The Marriage Chaos Begins
WASHINGTON, May 30 /Christian Newswire/ -- New York Governor David Paterson released a memo to state agencies arbitrarily and unilaterally instructing them to recognize "same-sex marriages" performed in other states and other countries in which they are considered legal. Recently, the California Supreme Court overruled a voter-approved statute protecting marriage, essentially opening the floodgates against marriage as between one man and one woman.
Matt Barber, Policy Director for Cultural Issues with Concerned Women for America (CWA), said, "The Marriage Chaos has begun. On the wings of supreme judicial activism in California, we're entering into an era of lawlessness and elitist rule, by the very few over the many, the likes of which we've rarely seen in this nation. The people must take back this great Democratic-Republic.
"First, every state in the union must pass a constitutional amendment protecting the sanctity of marriage as between one man and one woman. Second, steps must be taken to pass a federal constitutional marriage amendment protecting same. And third, those who love liberty in both California and New York should immediately mobilize and vote against the retention of the four renegade Supreme Court judges in California and impeach New York Governor David Paterson respectively.
"'We the people' are not left without recourse. Politicians and judicial activists across the country need to be reined in and made to understand that they will not be allowed to disregard the will of the people and the rule of law and create newfangled 'constitutional rights' out of thin-air," concluded Barber.
Concerned Women for America is the nation's largest public policy women's organization.
