If I Must Accept the Hobby Lobby Decision, You Must Accept Marriage Equality

US Supreme Court Color

June 2014: the Supreme Court hands down its opinion in a controversial case, Burwell v. Hobby Lobby. In a 5-4 vote, the court allows corporations to claim religious exemptions from federal laws. Opponents are angered but accept the court’s decision as the final word on the subject.

June 2015, the Supreme Court hands down its opinion in a controversial case, Obergefell v. Hodges. In a 5-4 vote, the court grants same-sex couples the right to marry in all 50 states. Opponents are angered and do not accept the court’s decision as the final word on the subject. With excessive pouting, they demand an end to the Supreme Court as we know it.

Texas senator Ted Cruz, self-appointed leader of the outraged, convened a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting titled, ‘With Prejudice: Supreme Court Activism and Possible Solutions.’ He spoke gravely with lots of heavy sighs and theatrical turns of phrase: “Much to my great disappointment, this past term, the court crossed a line. Continued its long descent into lawlessness. To a level that I believe demands action. [dramatic pause] The court today is not a body of jurists. It is not a body of judges following the law, but rather it has declared itself, in effect, a super-legislature.” A musical stab would have worked wonderfully here to punctuate his point. He continued in a supremely serious tone: “Five unelected judges declared that the marriage laws of all 50 states were now, somehow, transformed into being unconstitutional … That’s not law. That’s not judging. That’s policy-making.”

    Ted Cruz is a sissy little tantrum throwing baby! He and all of his BUTT BUDDIES are the ones crying because they lost and they want to be traitors to our country for thinking they are above the law and do not have to follow the law! Let us do one thing against the law and we end up in prison, but let them do it and it is okay!

    Cruz and all of his republican buddies is running this FREE country into the ground all for the LOVE of money because the radical so called christians are filling his and their pockets with money financing their run for the presidency!

    When is AMERICA home of the FREE going to wake the hell up and see that they want us to be a communist country and let them tell us what to do! Cruz and every republican needs tried for treason and stripped of everything they have!

    SCOTUS needs to see that the republicans think that they are above the law and think they do not need to follow the law!

    The U.S. Supreme Court rules for unlimited contributions to buy seats in Washington….the court is doing it’s job. However, when the same court doesn’t allow a state to discriminate against GLBT….the all of a sudden have become “Activist”. Go Figure! Cruz is a mad man with an ego to big to handle. I doesn’t make a pimple on a real Congressperson’s ass.
