legally speaking ALL marriage is defined as a civil union.
thhis is deliberate via the ABA model laws program.
There should be a prohibition against judges belonging to the ABA since it is a left wing lobby group that does not represent the vaaaaaaaast majority of lawyers.
You are correct.
I am reading a book on the origins of Judicial Review and Jurisprudence in America, with lots of John Marshall quotes and opinions.
One think is explicitly clear-—all Just Law has to be reasoned and logical. That is what is missing today-—we have absurd irrational judges making laws.
Now, John Marshall said, that any laws (State or Federal) that are repugnant to the Supreme Law of the Land (Constitution) should be struck down as “Null and Void”.
Many current laws can be classified as so repugnant to freedoms and unconstitutional-—it is not even funny anymore. They need to be liquidated.
Homosexual “marriage” and “civil unions” of homosexuals are very repugnant to a document which states our Natural Rights come from God (and His standards) Sodomy is evil and NOT a Right. The “laws of nature” can NOT arbitrarily be flipped upside down and intentionally IGNORED when it is the basis of our Laws. Natural Law Theory is the basis of our Constitution and legal system—it is where Justice and Rights and Duty and Common Sense come from.
By legalizing something as bizarre as sodomy-—you take away natural rights of children and make them means to an end-—something that human beings can never be by our Standards in our Constitution with INDIVIDUAL rights and dignity to every human being. You allow force of law to deny children their biological parent. It is evil and never promotes the general welfare of each individual child keeping them from their natural biological family.
