California voters: your voice doesn’t matter to Attorney General Jerry Brown

Calif. AG Urges Court to Void Gay Marriage Ban

“The California attorney general has changed his position on the state’s new same-sex marriage ban and is now urging the state Supreme Court to void Proposition 8.

In a dramatic reversal, Attorney General Jerry Brown filed a legal brief saying the measure that amended the California Constitution to limit marriage to a man and a woman is itself unconstitutional because it deprives a minority group of a fundamental right. Earlier, Brown had said he would defend the ballot measure against legal challenges from gay marriage supporters.”

Memo to Jerry Brown: California’s “ban” on same-sex marriage was about more than which marriages will be recognized by the State of California.  It was also the common man’s pushback against judicial tyranny.  A vote of the people is how these matters should be decided–it’s how more issues should be decided, in fact. 

California’s voters spoke decisively [with a 52% majority] to affirm that only marriages between a man and a woman will be recognized by state government.  They also made it clear that they would not accept radical policies forced upon them by activist judges.  If Jerry Brown cares so much about the Constitution, perhaps he would recognize that creating law is not the function of the judicial branch of government.

    Great post! I really enjoy reading your blog. Keep up the good work. I’ve just started a new blog that will be highlighting the dangers of the secular progressive movement (pro-gay “rights”, pro-abortion, anti-religious freedoms, etc). Unfortunately, most Christians still don’t know what’s going on out there and the mainstream media certainly isn’t covering it.

    We’re looking to build a solid group of social conservatives who’ll frequent our site regularly and contribute to some good discussions. I hope you’ll check us out!

    If you’ll add us to your blogroll we’ll gladly add you to ours. Just drop us a comment over at our blog so that we’ll know to add you. Our blog is at http://religionandmorality.wordpress.com/

    Thanks!
