Judge rules against discrimination, therefore in need of discrediting label ('black-robed philosopher king')

by Jeremy Hooper

Peter Wolfgang, head of the Family Institute of Connecticut (Brian Brown's old job), isn't so fond of courts determining laws are legally sound (i.e. the very role of courts). But I am glad to hear that he's apparently okay with legislatures in places like New York, where marriage has been fairly passed by the elected representatives:

"It is not the role of judges to behave as if they are black-robed philosopher kings reaching down into the democratic process and saying -- You know, these really big issues like the sanctity of human life or the definition of marriage, we'll take these out of the process; and you little people with your elected representatives, well, they can focus on filling the potholes in your streets," says Wolfgang.
...
"We defeated same-sex marriage every year for a decade at our state legislature," he says. "Then our state supreme court, by a one-vote majority, redefined marriage for our entire state -- took the issue right out of our democratic process -- right after our state legislature had explicitly determined that marriage was between a man and a woman.”
Another 'black-robed philosopher' rules against DOMA [ONN]

Right, Peter. Ya see, it's a funny thing, this whole discrimination thing. It doesn't get to stick around simply because you, a majority vote, a chicken company, or a Huckabee have a strong aversion. Thankfully, for the sake of this great nation, both past and present.
