Not only did the Supreme Court in a pair of decisions do all but legalize homosexual “marriage” in all 50 states, but if you defend traditional marriage, it decreed that you are a bigot who is just out to demean and humiliate homosexuals and deprive them of their rights.
As Justice Antonin Scalia summarized it in his dissent, the majority opinion is that you are an “enemy of the human race.”
Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority in the 5-4 decision on the Defense of Marriage Act, said, “The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity. By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment.”
Notice the assumption that a homosexual pairing is a “marriage.” While the court technically didn’t decide on the legality of homosexual marriage, the court assumed it. Thus, the ruling has the effect of legalizing homosexual marriage by acknowledging that states can pass homosexual marriage laws and ruling that any law that doesn’t recognize those marriages is assumed invalid.
Scalia observed that “by formally declaring anyone opposed to same-sex marriage an enemy of human decency, the majority arms well every challenger to a state law restricting marriage to its traditional definition.”
