PhoboQuotable – Robert Knight

“In light of federal Judge Vaughn R. Walker’s ruling on August 4 striking down California’s marriage law, let’s imagine a worst-case scenario. 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.” – Coral Ridge Ministries spokestwat Robert Knight.

Knight further bleats that legalizing same-sex marriage would be similar to the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, which stifled dissent of the federal government.
