Did the rainbows and glitter from this past weekend blind you to what the recent homosexual marriage SCOTUS (Supreme Court) decision was really about?

I suppose if asked, the majority of Americans would tell you Obergefell v. Hodges was completely about granting equal rights to homosexuals in regards to marital status options.  But don’t let all the rainbows and glitter blind you to what actually happened with this SCOTUS ruling.

Five people in black robes ripped the words “We the People” from the preamble of our Constitution.

Let me walk you through some things you need to keep in mind no matter what your position on homosexual marriage.

In this article from The Daily Signal in October 2014, Katrina Trinko says, “If people want to change a law they now consider to be wrong, they should do it at the ballot box, not at the courthouse.”  I couldn’t agree with her more, but yet this is what happened last week.

Over the past several years, people spoke at the ballot boxes in 34 states, and 31 of those states chose to define marriage as between one man and one woman.  The people were clear as to what they wanted.

But yet, now all 50 states are forced to abide by a law that, from the ballot boxes, a large majority of the people voted against.  Why? Because five Supreme Court justices ignored the will of the people and legislated from the bench.

All Americans, no matter which side of the homosexual marriage issue we fall on, should be concerned by this recent ruling. With this precedent, it no longer matters what the people in any state vote for.  The will of the people has been replaced by the will of five justices (it only takes five to be the majority rule of the SCOTUS).

Whether you are for or against homosexual marriage, if you believe in our Constitution, you realize our founding fathers intended this country be run by “We the People,” and not by a small elite group who make decisions for us.  This decision should have been made by the majority of voters in individual states, and not by five individuals.

Unfortunately, far too many who are proponents of homosexual marriage can’t see past the glitter and rainbows to this dangerous precedence.

While it might seem a victory to some, all Americans lost their voice with this ruling.  What happens in the future when your vote is tossed aside and the SCOTUS ignores your voice to make a law you and the majority of Americans disagree with? Will it seem like a victory then or will it be too late to stop the elite group’s power grab?
