Excellent piece. Anyone with common sense can see that Walker's ruling is beyond absurd and the ultimate act of legislative activism by a homosexual militant. Let's just hope there are enough sane judges left on the USSC to overturn this travesty.

What gets me about this case is that the judge clearly did not apply the law.

Federal law defines marriage as a man and a woman. Yet he ruled that it is against federal law to define marriage as a man and a woman. Are we in Orwell’s “1984”?

He ruled that California defining marriage violates the 14th amendment. He completely ignored the fact that federal law defines marriage. The Defense of Marriage Act is not mentioned in his opinion at all.

Since the case involves how marriage is to be defined, wouldn’t you think that a thorough judge would make note that federal law (aside from 14th amendment claims) defines marriage in the same way as does the stricken down California state law? Since the judge is applying federal law here?

Alternately, how can he strike down California marriage law based on the 14th amendment without also striking down the Defense of Marriage Act?

Who has the right to define marriage in the first place? The people? Legislatures? Federal judges? Lambda Legal?

"Anyone with common sense can see that Walker's ruling is beyond absurd."

Roger that. The findings of fact reads more like an ideological manifesto than a legal ruling and deals primarily with philosopical issues rather than factual determinations. It is so over the top there should be no problem getting Justice Kennedy to line up with the Catholic Justices on this one.

While not causal, widespread acceptance of homosexuality is associated with declining civilizations. The late Roman, high Islamic and Britain of the 1930s come to mind.

Add the US to the list.

There is one significant difference. We may be the sole civilization to impose homo marriage on society.

This activist judge's basis for ruling is absurd to the extreme. He argued that if homosexual marriage doesn't harm anyone it should be legal...well, my owing a M61 Vulcan Gatling gun doesn't harm anyone either...but that's not legal...and my owning a nuclear device wouldn't harm anyone either assuming I had sufficient staff on hand to maintain it properly...and yet the government is violating my rights to own one on the same basis this activist judge is placing his personal values above the legal votes of 7 Million Californians.

Yea but the State of California's so called "leaders"(Gov. R-null & AG Moonbeam )were in on the fix and this case was fixed from the start...

The State will say it was the defendant and is not going to appeal and say the people have no standing to appeal... the State did the same with Prop 187...

No pun intended but this case was the very worst of dirty backdoor poltics you will ever see...
