U.S. Justice Foundation Article Quoted in Mississippi Supreme Court Justice’s Opinion

November 15, 2015 @


This summer, U.S. Justice Foundation sponsored a series of articles by experts in the field in a series called “Building the Resistance to Same-Sex Marriage.” One of those articles has now been used by Justice Jess H. Dickinson, Presiding Justice of the Supreme Court of Mississippi, in a Court opinion.

Specifically, the article appeared in Justice Dickinson’s Separate Written Statement Objecting to a Court order related to a same-sex married couple. In support of his view that the Mississippi court should not defer to the State’s Attorney General’s capitulation to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision, Justice Dickinson quoted from the article commissioned by U.S. Justice Foundation:

“And, according to an article co-authored by Herbert W. Titus, who taught constitutional law for more than a quarter of a century and concluded his academic career as
the Founding Dean of Regent Law School:

‘There is simply no other way to say it.

‘The Supreme Court’s decision today redefining marriage to include couples of the same sex is wholly illegitimate and unlawful. A nullity. Worthy only to be disobeyed.

‘Anyone who says otherwise—that the rule of law requires recognition of same-sex marriage—is committing a fraud. And any State official—like Governor Robert Bentley of Alabama—who says that his oath of office requires unconditional obedience to the Supreme Court’s mandate to issue same-sex couples licenses to marry is mistaking his oath to the Constitution as if it were an oath of absolute obedience to five justices who happen to be sitting on the nation’s highest court.’ ” [Footnote: Herbert W. Titus & William J. Olson, Obergefell v. Hodges: Illegitimate, Unlawful, and a Fraud on the American People, Western Journalism, June 26, 2015 (last visited Nov. 3, 2015).

The quotation appears on page 12 of the Court’s Order. Link to Court Order and Statement

    Homosexuals do not enjoy rights like other citizens and therefore need minority status and special civil rights. As Americans, homosexuals are entitled to equal rights, not special rights. Their behavior-based lifestyle does not qualify for privileged minority status under U.S. law.

    All individuals; good, bad, homosexual or heterosexual are protected under the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. As a class, the courts have repeatedly denied homosexuals their claim to “insular and discreet” minority status, quotas and affirmative action. Homosexuality is a behavior, not a race. Homosexuality is defined by the act of sodomy. This behavior is not constitutionally protected as per the Supreme Court ruling in Bowers vs. Hardwick.

    This is exactly it. It is a BEHAVIOR, and a destructive one. Homosexual tendencies are like any other antisocial tendencies. We all have them. It is our responsibility not to engage in destructive behavior, because it hurts others. The court decisions that ratify homosexual behavior are undermining the very fabric of social order. To make matters worse, homosexuals and the courts seek to force the rest of us to accept and participate in their lifestyle. Nothing could be further from the rights of citizens in general. It is utter tyranny. Nobody has a right to force anyone else to participate in or abet destructive behavior.

    Likewise is Roe versus Wade. Maybe some sense of intelligence will ignite the world yet.

    Not only is the homosexual lifestyle destructive but it is also counterproductive. If the argument of the homosexual movement were allowed to go unchecked then the population of the world would steadily decline to a point of total and utter extinction. This lifestyle in itself has torn apart the very moral fiber of each and every country that has embraced it. Children as young as 4 and 5 years old have been brainwashed, as set by example, into believing that the very expression of homosexuality is the normal and the accepted lifestyle and nothing could be farther from the truth thus drawing their young minds into a lie by believing that such an expression of indifference is accepted in all walks of life thus drawing those young minds into the homosexual lifestyle and not realizing that such an adoption of indifference is then destructive to them and others around them. This cannot be tolerated and must not be taught as normal thus destroying the very moral fiber that has held this nation together for more than 500 years. We as individuals must get back to and return to the moral fiber that has been the fabric that has held this nation together for hundreds of years.

    It goes without saying that the entire purpose of this exercise to to destroy the moral turpitude of our society. That being done, along with a long list of other destructive policy re-inventions/changes have all been aimed to further undermine us as a nation. If anyone were truly interested as to the chain of events that have put us as a civilized society, one only needs to read and comprehend a tome that was authored in the early 1950’s By an FBI agent that was set to the task by the then Director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover. The Agent finalized the report and it became a book, “The Naked Communist”. When it was pointed out that long ago that every attempt would be made to force the present outcome. What has taken place beyond any shadow of doubt is almost exactly verbatim to what was reported in the aforementioned book. If you cannot see this for yourselves, then certainly you are too stupid to live! I rest my case.
