Gay marriage opponent calls for impeachment of Maryland judge
Same story from the Family Policy Council
And last but not least, I found this this article which seems to be the most in-depth of the three. (Video included) This one goes on to say that the judge in question, a Ms. Brooke Murdock, overturned a 33 year old law "against same-sex marriage". What gives her the right to do that I ask? Why does she have the right to overthrow a clearly constitutional statute? A statute that is and was clearly supported by the writers of our constitution as we saw in my post yesterday. This is a clear overstepping of judicial power. Thomas Jefferson warned us that:
"[T]o consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional
questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us
under the despotism of an oligarchy. . . . The Constitution has erected no such
The Constitution . . . [would be] a mere thing of wax in the hands of the
judiciary which they may twist and shape into any form they please."(link)
That is where the problem lies. When a judge is able to invent from thin air the right for sodomy, he or she clearly has overstepping the bounds of the constitution and the bounds of all that is righteous and holy. Let us look at the thoughts of John David Michaelis, the author of an 1814 four-volume legal work. (Text provided by David Barton here)
"Whoever, therefore, wishes to ruin a nation, has only to get this vice (Sodomy)
introduced; for it is extremely difficult to extirpate it where it has once
taken root because it can be propagated with much more secrecy . . . and when we
perceive that it has once got a footing in any country, however powerful and
flourishing, we may venture as politicians to predict that the foundation of its
future decline is laid and that after some hundred years it will no longer be
the same . . . powerful country it is at present."
Let us look at an example of a court out of control.
If a judge had been allowed by the legislature to overturn laws that the people make without any check, slavery would not have been abolished. (see this article about half way down the page)
This is the reason that legislators like Delegate Dwyer MUST take action to stop these judges from overturning laws that are both constitutional and moral. To allow otherwise is to turn our country into a dictatorship of nine persons in black.
(Agent Tim recently heard this man speak. That must have been very cool and to top it off, it gave me a great post idea.
