Perfect: Counterfeit Marriage Advocates Continue to Show Contempt for Rule of Law

We've chronicled how supporters of counterfeit marriage have shown contempt for law at every turn, starting with then-Mayor Gavin Newsom's illegally instructing the county clerk to issue "marriage" licenses. The narcissistic disregard of the common good is psychologically interesting. They continue to prove our point.
From Lisa Leff, writing for the AP:
"A federal appeals court on Friday cleared the way for the state of California to immediately resume issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples after a 4 1/2-year freeze.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a brief order saying it has dissolved a stay it imposed on gay marriages while a lawsuit challenging the state's voter-approved ban on such unions worked its way through the courts."

Leff concludes her article (emphasis added):
"Under Supreme Court rules, the losing side in a legal dispute has 25 days to ask the high court to rehear the case. The court said earlier this week that it would not finalize its ruling in the Proposition 8 dispute until after that time had elapsed.

It was not immediately clear whether the appeals court's action would be halted by the high court."

Their attitude toward the rule of law may have been best expressed by a commentor to a San Francisco Chronicle blog post on the subject, who wrote:

"Excellent chess move, wait until 4:00pm on a Friday to announce this...and on Pride weekend too. Good luck religious right in trying to find a judge to issue a halt before Monday morning."

Andy Pugno writes (emphasis in original):

"We just received word that the Ninth Circuit, without waiting for the Supreme Court’s decision to become final and depriving us of our right to ask for reconsideration, has rushed forward to order same-sex marriage licenses.

This outrageous act of judicial tyranny tops off a chronic pattern of lawlessness, throughout this case, by judges and politicians hell-bent on thwarting the vote of the people to redefine marriage by any means, even outright corruption.

Homosexual marriage is not happening because the people changed their mind. It isn’t happening because the appellate courts declared a new constitutional right. It’s happening because enemies of the people have abused their power to manipulate the system and render the people voiceless.

The resumption of same-sex marriage this day has been obtained by illegitimate means. If our opponents rejoice in achieving their goal in a dishonorable fashion, they should be ashamed."

"Pray the Gospel and Change the World!"

Catholics of San Francisco (and throughout the USA for that matter) should organize a public prayerful Rosary Rally (yes and with all the Bishops too!).

Take to the streets with rosaries in hand praying Our Lady's Rosary with the intention of restoring a true Marriage Culture and the Culture of Life as taught by the Church.

Such a simple plan of prayer in action and yet a time- tested means to convert hearts--Yes!"Pray the Gospel and Change the World!"

See the stories about famous rosary miracles at

I couldn't help but smile when I read on this above blog, regarding the Brazilian Rosary Rally 1962-1964;

"Leone Brizola, a Communist high government official, left in a rage when his planned speech was thwarted by the rattling of 3000 rosaries and the murmuring of the prayers in the assembly hall."

Can you just imagine some of our own antagonists here in CA and throughout the USA having to put up with a crowd rattling thousands of rosaries? Wouldn't you just shout for joy if those preaching the 'rights' of so-called 'gay marriage' were silenced by the 'rattling of rosaries' being prayed for faithful Catholics in attendance?? Count me in . . .
