Dred Scott, Roe v. Wade, and now Obergefell vs. Hodges

“Let not your heart be troubled,” Jesus said. But he also said to obey God and not man.

A friend sent me this:

Here’s just one excerpt from his scalding dissent. Trust me, it will bring some momentary lightness to a dark and gloomy day:

“The opinion is couched in a style that is as pretentious as its content is egotistic. It is one thing for separate concurring or dissenting opinions to contain extravagances, even silly extravagances, of thought and expression; it is something else for the official opinion of the Court to do so.

“Of course, the opinion’s showy profundities are often profoundly incoherent: ‘The nature of marriage is that, through its enduring bond, two persons together can find other freedoms, such as expression, intimacy, and spirituality.’ (Really? Who ever thought that intimacy and spirituality [whatever that means] were freedoms? And if intimacy is, one would think Freedom of Intimacy is abridged rather than expanded by marriage. Ask the nearest hippie.”
