Staver: Marriage Decisions of Supreme Court and Ninth Circuit Undermine Rule of Law

"Poor us!"

Add one more preposterous polemic to the pile of protest of Supreme Court decisions in DOMA and Proposition 8. According to Liberty Counsel:
Mat Staver
Thomas Jefferson understood that the judiciary was supposed to be the weakest branch of government, but he also warned it could be the seed that results in the dissolution of the Republic if judges did not exercise restraint. The Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, in the marriage cases, illustrate why Jefferson was concerned. These decisions are not based on the law or the Constitution, are devoid of reason, and are contrary to natural law. 
When I was a child I learned in school that there are three co-equal branches of government. It's truly amazing. Faced with a decision that the Christianists don't like it must not be based on "law or the Constitution" and it must be  "devoid of reason." As for natural law, that was the attempt, by Liberty Counsel's predecessors, to recognize religion in order to justify slavery and then segregation.
