Legal Scholars call for resistance to Obergefell

Sixty-four distinguished legal scholars call for resistance to the recent Supreme Court decree.

We stand with James Madison and Abraham Lincoln in recognizing that the Constitution is not whatever a majority of Supreme Court justices say it is. 
We remind all officeholders in the United States that they are pledged to uphold the Constitution of the United States, not the will of five members of the Supreme Court.  
We call on all federal and state officeholders: 
To refuse to accept Obergefell as binding precedent for all but the specific plaintiffs in that case.
To recognize the authority of states to define marriage, and the right of federal and state officeholders to act in accordance with those definitions.
To pledge full and mutual legal and political assistance to anyone who refuses to follow Obergefell for constitutionally protected reasons.

Nice to see some signs of courage finally showing up.

(Will the Catholic Church show equal courage?)
