Homosexual Marriage: "Not a Fundamental Right"

A judge has ruled that homosexual "marriage" is not a fundamental right.

A lesbian couple "married" last June in Massachusetts are now seeking a "divorce" in Pennsylvania.

Judge Scott Lash says "No" because their argument is unsupportable to pass the test for being a fundamental right.

Judge Lash said, "This is a plea for social change. If homosexuals had a fundamental right to marry each other, this plea would be unnecessary."

The judge also wrote the following in his ruling:

"Courts should be reluctant to identify a right as fundamental when not clearly required by the Constitution or established precedent. A court who finds a fundamental right where none exists, bypasses the legislative process and denies the people a voice in effecting social policy, in essence, trumping democracy by judicial fiat."

Take away fact:

Some judges try to "follow" the Constitution and some try to "use" it.

Judges are either elected or appointed by people you elect. In either case it is in your hands.

Be prayerful. Be vigilant. Be active.
