The Nullification of the 1st amendment

http://www.wnd.com/2015/08/Dobson-obergfell-fight-not-about-marriage/I have been watching and listening to people every since the 5 justice’s on the Supreme Court handed down their decision on gay marriage. I may be naive, but I don’t understand their reasoning. It seems to me they are saying that the 14th amendment has precedence over the 1st amendment. In other words they seem to be saying that the 14th amendment overturns the 1st amendment making it null and void. But that makes no sense to me since nothing in the Constitution gives them the right to delegate the right to decide the validity of the 1st amendment. If their ruling is saying that the 14th amendment overturns the 1st, then on it’s very face their ruling is unconstitutional and therefore void. Gay activist vandalizes pro-marriage signI was reading a post on WND earlier and it seems Dr. James Dobson has a lot of questions himself.

“Obergefell, Dobson said, “is actually about everything that America has been and will be.”

WND reported the case of Rowan County, Kentucky, Clerk Kim Davis, who has refused to issue licenses to same-sex couples because of her deeply held religious beliefs.

Homosexuals went to court demanding that she be forced to violate her faith even though they are able to get their licenses at any of dozens of other locations around the state.

Her case is moving up to the U.S. Supreme Court now.

The Davis case poses the question of whether or not the government can force someone to violate his or her constitutional religious rights to accommodate the newly recognized right to “same-sex marriage.”

Davis’ critics have vowed to make her pay because she’s not upholding a right that didn’t exist when she took her oath of office. Kentucky Gov. Steven Beshear, a Democrat, has told clerks to issue the licenses or resign. But that order would appear to create a religious test for public officials, meaning those with disfavored beliefs would be banned from office, which is unconstitutional.”

  2. The only function of the Supreme Court is to “interpret” the law (The Constitution and its amendments) and the law’s “intent”, not to create new laws by their rulings.They should have declined to hear the same-sex marriage issue based exactly on its conflict with existing amendment(s). With that being said, their ruling will now remain forever as a new law of the land. May God help us all. The abuse of power by the Federal Government is expanding exponentially and will continue for long as the “people” allow it. Voting the “party line” is, and will continue to be, the biggest deterrent to: “A government of the people, by the people and for the people” which was once so greatly cherished that it could transcend all political affiliations.

    • You are most likely right Jake, but there is precedence in overturning a bad decision, Dred Scott was a bad decision. It resulted in the 13th and the 14th amendment. Sometimes it takes a pivotal debate to effect change. Perhaps this is one of those times. Personally, I am thinking we have to have a constitutional convention, or the states will have to remind the feds that they are not the final word. God bless you my friend.

  3. Congress is corrupt and ineffective. The Judiciary is a completely liberal puppet show and don’t get me started on the fraud in the White House. Loopy we are in deep doo doo. The sheep that are the “party-liners” are going to continue to march to the Pied Piper… Right up to the very end.. May God help us, and I pray often that He will. God bless you and yours as well. What is the procedure for a Constitutional Convention? How many states must call for one and does Congress have any influence in preventing one?

    • The procedure for a Constitutional convention is for 2/3 of the states to vote for one in their legislatures and pass it, then for Congress to certify it and set the date for it to happen. Several states have already done so, but I am not sure how many. Mark Levin and former Sen. Tom Coburn are part of the group trying to make it happen. You can join the group and get updates. http://cnsnews.com/news/article/mark-Levin-states-should-call-convention-propose-amending-constitution
      http://www.conventionofstates.com/ Convention of States is a group you can join, they are the ones Mark Levin and Sen. Tom Coburn work with, they will send you updates and you can be involved in the process if you want to.
      God bless you my friend and love you.
