The Supremes Think They've Killed States Rights

Something is rumbling in the hinterlands.

From Kirkpatrick Sale:

The principle of states’ rights, which has lived on for the last 150 years as a noble, though often sickly, memory of the Founding Fathers’ intentions, was dealt its final, fatal blow by the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage decision last month.
Thirty-one states banned same-sex marriages between 2000 and 2012, responding presumably to the wishes of their populations, and they were easily a majority of Americans.  Those bans are now overturned and the will of the people in those states is now thwarted.  States do not have rights that a liberal majority of nine non-elected judges declares they should not.

Justice Scalia realized immediately what the majority was doing: its decision “robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.”  The People made the mistake of governing themselves against the will of five wily Ivy League lawyers who believed that homosexual marriages were good, and justified by the 14th Amendment.  They had to be set straight.

The "Founding Father" whose laws should be obeyed is Christ, not a bunch of heretic anti-Catholics. Their endeavor was doomed to fail because it was not Catholic. Whoever wrote that article worships the wrong God.

I agree with you that the "American experiment" was doomed from the beginning.
