On March 5th, the California Supreme Court will hear arguments on Proposition 8. Only four months after seven million Californians voted to amend the California Constitution to read “Marriage is between a Man and a Woman”, 7 justices will decide if this will be our law.
Ken Starr (of Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial) leads the Prop 8 side and is expected to show all of the legal reasons why this was approved by California’s Attorney General, Jerry Brown, and placed on last November’s ballot.
Shannon Minter, a transsexual attorney for the National Center for Lesbian Rights will argue that “its not fair.”
However, no matter what happens and regardless of the outcome, there are immutable facts which will remain.
1 – Marriage was instituted by God. No matter your religion (or lack thereof), all roots trace marriage back to a religious institution. It always have and always will be a divine ordinance in God’s eyes.
2 – Nothing that is said in front of, or done by, the California Supreme Court, will change the facts of Marriage. Marriage will continue to be a Religious Principle that has been accepted and codified by the laws of man.
In light of these two tenets, people may protest the decision of the court, legislatures may enact additional laws and pass future referendums, and courts may continue to pass judgements as time marches on.
None of these will change the Divine Nature of Marriage.
This cannot be refuted any more than one can argue against the Laws of Physics. In the end, gravity wins.
Think about it. You have time.
