“In the 7th Circuit case, Judge Richard Posner crafted one of the most ideologically-driven and personally invested rulings I’ve ever read from a federal justice—and that’s saying something! Indeed, the craziest moments of Posner’s decision are not merely ludicrous and poorly reasoned, they’re scandalously offensive. For example, he insinuates that the people of Indiana and Wisconsin—whose marriage laws his decision strikes down—were acting against children’s welfare by instantiating in law the ideal that kids have both a mother and a father!
“But it gets even worse than that. To take another—and perhaps the most egregious—example: We know that the tradition of marriage as the union of husband and wife is nearly universal to the human experience; it is a tradition honorably celebrated and sincerely believed in by nearly every religious tradition and philosophy, throughout history and in our own day. It constitutes a deeply held belief for literally billions of people worldwide.
“Well, Posner compares that tradition to cannibalism and ritualistic suicide! Marriage Supporter, you should be outraged, as I am, that the deeply held beliefs of millions of Americans like us can be subjected to such calumny by high-level judiciary official in our land. We should be disgusted to find the votes of millions of Americans to protect marriage and the interests of children in having a mom and a dad compared libelously to something as grotesque as cannibalism! The redefinition of marriage is not inevitable—not by a long shot.” – Hate group leader Brian Brian, in a blog post titled A Major Victory because Louisiana.
