Tyranny of judges

26 June 2015 is a black day in the history of USA and the world. USA’s Supreme Court by 5-4 majority judgment destroyed democracy and upheld same sex marriages. In California people in a referendum had voted to define marriage as union of one man and one woman. In USA marriage is a state subject. Legislatures in more than 30 states had passed laws making marriage a union of one man and one woman. Judges at local level had overturned such laws and the matter had come to USA’s Supreme Court. The five judges nullified the will of the people and imposed their view as law. Judges became tyrants.
It was unimaginable till some years back that men will want to marry men and women will want to marry women and judges will overturn laws to allow such perversity. Yet it has happened. Now it is for US Congress to define marriage as a union of one man and one woman in the Constitution and have retirement age or term limit of judges and make it easy for removal and punishment of judges in case of perverse verdicts . It is good to have a term of four years for judges of Supreme Court.
Five judges who ruled in favour of same sex marriages were Anthony Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Members of Congress shall impeach them.
Four judges who ruled against same sex marriages were John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas.
Catholic bishops of USA should excommunicate Anthony Kennedy and Sonia Sotomayor for favouring same sex marriages. It is for the Jews to decide what they want to do with Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Elena Kagan.
Judicial tyranny is not restricted to USA alone. Sometimes it is euphemistically called judicial activism. In many countries judges cross their limits and encroach on the powers of executive and legislature. Judges assume powers which are not given to them in Constitution or by convention.
Evil is justified as being modern. Good is destroyed by saying it is antiquated. There is nothing modern about homosexuality. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of it.
Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. When judges become tyrants liberty is destroyed. Terry Schiavo lost her life because of judges.
States with heterosexual marriage legislation shall defy Supreme Court. Louisiana and Mississippi have cited legal hurdles.
Some countries have passed legislation or held referendum to make same sex marriage legal. The result of referendum in Ireland was a shock. Many times evil triumphs because good people do nothing. Those good people should now speak up and act to restore marriage to its rightful status.

  1. U Better start an extremist organisation viz CS, (christian state), like IS…
    What the nation done in Vietnam and Iraq is not tyranny? A judgement with humane aspect seems tyranny for you?… Crap…

  2. What Israel does in Gaza and West Bank is also tyranny. My article is about judges exceeding their limits, assuming powers of executive and legislature, and destroying democracy. It is for legislatures to change law, not to judiciary.

  3. It is sad to see even educated human beings are misled by such wrong things like homosexuality.
    We are not condemning the sinner but the sin. To forgive the sinner is in Gods hand but the sin is detestable in Gods sight.
