A pro-family activist is urging justices to uphold Proposition 8
just days before the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to decide on
the California initiative.
While there is bias among the justices, there is also hope that
their vote will uphold the will of Californians, says Peter
LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality.
"I'm fearful at what's going to happen," says LaBarbera. "It
seems to me at the very least, they might strike down Prop. 8 - and
that was decided by the people of California."
Justices are expected to rule on Proposition 8 before the end of
the month. The court will determine if the voter-approved
initiative will stand and if the Constitution allows states to
decide on the issue of marriage.
"I think that the judges are
swayed by the liberal media and by culture," says LaBarbera,
recalling that Justice Anthony Kennedy once talked about "animus"
"… Opposition to homosexuality being labeled as 'animus.' So we
know there is bias among the judges," LaBarbera says.
Justices were expected to decide on Prop. 8 and the federal
Defense of Marriage Act earlier this week, but the high court did
not rule on either case.
"So we have to hope that the law and the Constitution prevail
and not this tremendous politically correct tidal wave - this
tsunami of political correctness that comes from the
biased liberal media."
If the Supreme Court strikes down Prop. 8, judges can use that
decision to legalize same-sex marriage across the nation.
The U.S. Supreme Court is telling the Oklahoma Supreme Court to
think twice about its decision on the use of an abortion drug.
