Should SCOTUS play tough, Robert Knight will play 'ruff'

by Jeremy Hooper

So what happens if/when we win marriage equality at the United States Supreme Court? Well, if longtime "pro-family" so-and-so Robert Knight has his way, we will see evangelical Christians denying the decision ever happened:

It goes to the U.S. Supreme Court, where, flanked by leftist newcomers Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, Anthony Kennedy takes his latest plunge into existential mystery and manufactures a constitutional "right" to force Americans to recognize same-sex "marriage." I'm not saying they are going to do this, but what if?

What should right-thinking Americans do?

First, they should announce loudly and clearly that they won't go along with this abuse of language ruse. Does a federal judge have the right to change the meaning of a word?

For example, if a law gave special recognition to dogs (a dog license) could Judge Walker, a cat lover, arbitrarily decree that cats are dogs? Clearly not, any more than decreeing the absurdity of brideless or groomless "marriage" into the law immediately transforms it into the real thing. Creating counterfeits and then forcing them down people's throats is straight out of George Orwell's Newspeak in 1984.

Gay activists aren't trying to change the species of marriage participants in ways that incorrectly mislabels -- the goal is simply for society to accommodate all worthy and eligible members of the human race. Gay couples exist in loving unions. Gay couples share responsibilities with each other and share taxes with their government. To honor these unions with marriage is not at all like inaccurately labeling an Abyssinian as a Shih Tzu: It's more like allowing all doggies access to the same kennel, regardless of whose leg they might hump.

</absurd realm where gay humans are forced to defend themselves against biological declassification>

Knight goes on to compare potential marriage equality to the Alien and Sedition Acts, saying that it would "impose falsehoods on its citizens" and stifle the First Amendment in a way that "Americans are wired to resist." Except gay Americans, of course. We just want to play fetch the constitution before lining our litter boxes with the same.
