The Case For Fma

Here’s the point. If the gay marriage question is resolved, not only by four liberal justices in Massachusetts, but by a campaign of civil disobedience in California and around the nation, conservatives face defeat on a whole range of issues. Americans oppose gay marriage by a two to one margin. The people of California voted decisively just four years ago to define marriage as the union of a single man and woman. If four activist judges in Massachusetts and one rebel mayor in San Francisco can overturn the legal definition of marriage-against the strong sentiment of the nation as a whole-then there will never be any issue on which activist judges fear to disregard either law or majority opinion. If the public gives up on this issue without a fight, then the battle against socially liberal activist judges is effectively dead. What to do? Simple. Ask your representatives to support of the Federal Marriage Amendment, and vote for president Bush.
