Time to Fight!

The Court’s rationale for its decision should prompt outrage from the majority of California’s citizens,” said Ron Prentice, chairman of the coalition, a group of organizations promoting the ballot initiative. “The will of the people has been completely undermined by four individuals. In November, the people will have an opportunity to overrule the Court’s decision by passing a constitutional amendment – and California’s voters must respond by voting.”

Our State Constitution must be amended in order to overturn what four misguided judges did to weaken the family fabric of our state.

How does this ruling "weaken the family fabric of our state?" It takes nothing away. It clarifies the separation between civil and religious marriage (remember, if you marry in the church, you are required to be married by the state as well). One of the profound purposes of the judiciary as set up by the founders was to protect the rights of the minority from being trampled by the majority. This is not 'judicial activisim' at all, it is justice served. There are far too many historical examples of the majority being wrong (the church condemning Galileo comes readily to mind) to worship at the altar of 'majority rule.'
