Certainly, this quote refers to those 3,500 unborn children2 whose lives are legally snuffed out each day because of the U.S. Supreme Court decision forty years ago which denied the right to life!
…….. Uh, no, this was Justice Anthony Kennedy referring to the 40,000 of California’s children whose guardians are same-sex “married” couples.
The children’s inexperience requires parental permission for even the simplest of activities off school campus. Nevertheless, their implied expert testimony is admissible (in absentia) for this case dealing with an attempt to overturn an aspect of Natural Law, which is not under the state’s jurisdiction by the way.
For some reason, the voice of their dying, younger peers doesn’t count in the defense of their innocent lives.
* – Justice Kennedy’s quote partially summarizing a concern of those who are opposing California’s Proposition 8 (approved by a majority of voters and which stated that marriage is defined as being between one man and one woman.) He was speaking to Charles J. Cooper, who represents supporters of Proposition 8. [“Supreme Court Proposition 8 Case Arguments Cast Doubt on Gay Marriage Ban,” by Mike Sacks and Ryan J. Reilly, www.huffingtonpost.com, 3/26/2013]
2 – I cannot take credit for this observation of a close friend, only for the courage to post commentary on a timeless truth currently out-of-fashion with a majority of the media and its followers.
