A Call to Action for Americans Concerned About Judicial Activism and the Future of Traditional Marriage

“In Obergefell v. Hodges, five justices, without the slightest warrant in the text, logic, structure, or historical understanding of the Constitution presumed to declare unconstitutional the marriage laws of states that maintain the historic and sound understanding of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife.
Obergefell is not “the law of the land.” It has no more claim to that status than Dred Scott v. Sandford had when President Abraham Lincoln condemned that pro-slavery decision as an offense against the very Constitution that the Supreme Court justices responsible for that atrocious ruling purported to be upholding. “- Professor Robert P. George.
I, Carol M. Swain, am proud to stand with the courageous Americans who have signed a statement calling for constitutional resistance of judicial edicts not grounded in traditional methods of constitutional interpretations.
Excerpt from the Statement:

As the 2016 election season heats up, we call on all who aspire to be our next President to pledge to:

  1. treat Obergefell, not as “the law of the land,” but rather (to once again quote Justice Alito) as “an abuse of judicial power”
  2. refuse to recognize Obergefell as creating a binding rule controlling other cases or their own conduct as President
  3. appoint judges and justices who respect the constitutional limits of their power, and
  4. support the First Amendment Defense Act to protect the conscience and free speech rights of those who hold fast to the conjugal understanding of marriage as the union of husband and wife.

Like Lincoln, we will not accept judicial edicts that undermine the sovereignty of the people, the Rule of Law, and the supremacy of the Constitution. We will resist them by every peaceful and honorable means. We will not be bullied into acquiescence or silence. We will fight for the Constitution and our beloved Nation.
