CONSTITUTION PARTY SAYS SUPREME COURT DECISION ON
SAME-SEX MARRIAGE VIOLATES RULE OF LAW
26 June 2015, Lancaster, Pennsylvania . . . The Constitution Party decries today’s Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage as an “unconstitutional decree that cannot legalize anything”, and equates its ruling with the Dred Scott decision, which held that certain people must be recognized as chattel under the law. Both decisions are unconstitutional and both are blatant examples of how the Rule of Law has been abandoned in America.
The Court’s decision does not alter the Constitution Party position that marriage is between a man and a woman, as God ordained from the Creation.
The Constitution Party continues to support the principle of religious freedom, as outlined in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which states,
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or of the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The Constitution Party believes this includes the God-given right of religious leaders to refuse to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies, as well as the right of individuals to disagree on the matter of same-sex marriage without government interference, according to the dictates of their own conscience.
The Constitution Party agrees with Thomas Jefferson when he said, “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so, ” and calls for Civil Disobedience against such violations of the Rule of Law.
