Last week’s mystical edict from the Supreme Court that imposed “gay” marriage on all 50 states, is only a symptom of a much more serious problem with the leftist dominated Court.

According to Huckabee, “While some cowardly politicians wave the white flag and surrender to this unconstitutional, out-of-control act of judicial tyranny, I reject this decision and will fight from ‘Day One’ of my administration to defend our Constitution and protect religious liberty.”
Sen. Cruz: We Must Not Submit Our Constitutional Freedoms, And The Promise Of Our Nation, To Judicial TyrannyJun 30th, 2015 | By fyork
Not only are the Court’s opinions untethered from reason and logic, they are also alien to our constitutional system of limited and divided government. By redefining the meaning of common words, and redesigning the most basic human institutions, this Court has crossed from the realm of activism into the arena of oligarchy.
“I continue to believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. The Supreme Court’s overreach into decisions that should be made by states and the people living and voting in them is disappointing. Moving forward, we must ensure families and religious institutions across America are not punished for exercising their right to their own personal beliefs regarding the traditional definition of marriage.”
But what really astounds is the hubris reflected in today’s judicial Putsch. The five Justices who compose today’s majority are entirely comfortable concluding that every State violated the Constitution for all of the 135 years between the Fourteenth Amendment’s ratification and Massachusetts’ permitting of same-sex marriages in 2003.
“It is a tragic and ominous day for the United States when a decision by five unelected justices of the U.S. Supreme Court blatantly violates the law in order to destroy the foundational building block for society provided by Nature and Nature’s God – that was stated as divine law by Moses and Jesus. Our nation has been blessed with liberty, opportunity, power, and individual prosperity beyond any other nation in history. Both Moses and Jesus stated that it was God’s law that ‘a man will leave his father and mother and a woman will leave her home and the two will come together as one.’ That defined marriage.
To argue same-sex marriage won’t affect anyone but those in a same-sex relationship is either naïve or just plain dishonest. It directly conflicts with the long-standing traditions and teachings of many faiths, setting up a collision with the First Amendment guarantee of religious liberty. Even prior to this Supreme Court decision, there are many examples of businesses fined, penalized or economically terrorized because the owners held to their convictions about marriage based on their religious views.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was one of several presidential candidates who spoke over the weekend at the Road to Majority Conference in Washington, D.C. During his speech, Cruz described his defense of religious liberty while Solicitor General of Texas and warned that the IRS will go the tax-exempt status of religious groups that oppose homosexual marriages.
“We are at the water’s edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech. Because today we’ve reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage you are labeled a homophobe and a hater, so what’s the next step after that?” … “After they are done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church, is hate speech and that’s a real and present danger.”
“For too long, federal courts have overstepped their constitutionally limited duty to interpret the Constitution.” Said King. “Rather, federal courts have perverted the Constitution to make law and create constitutional rights to things such as privacy, birth control, and abortion. These unenumerated, so-called constitutionally-protected rights were not envisioned by our Founding Fathers.”
