"...what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” “A Republic, if you can keep it

KLEINS

Sorry folks, I just can not let this go. Every fiber of my being screams out in outrage. I don't know what to do, but We the People must do something! Our side is composed of Conservatives, Christians and true patriots with brilliant minds. Surely, we can come up with a solution to defeat a handful of evil Leftist arrogant tyrannical bullying Oregon government officials.

In case you were abducted by aliens and just returned to earth (I watched the movie Close Encounters yesterday), Christian bakery owners, Melissa and Aaron Klein, were fined $135K and state ordered not to speak publicly about it.  The Kleins' crime is refusing to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding.

Now get this folks, the Kleins served their lesbian client on numerous occasions. But, the Kleins' religious faith forced them to decline from doing anything in support of a behavior that is contrary to the Word of God. That is the Kleins and our first Amendment Right.

Leftists have masterfully entrenched the absurd claim that not supporting a behavior is the same as “discrimination” against a person. Oregon officials figuratively told the Kleins screw your rights; comply or suffer economic death.

Who are these Oregon officials who think they can give the Constitution and 40 million Christians the finger and get away with it? Brother and sister patriots, we can not let this go unabated; literally stand by and watch Christians slaughtered right before our very eyes.

Donald Trump said his rising presidential poll numbers confirm America's “silent majority”. Rush Limbaugh asked why are we not seeing proof of their existence; push back against SCOTUS redefining the thousands of years old definition of marriage, the bullying of the Kleins and so on?

Explaining his point, Rush cited when Obama sent bus loads of illegals to Murrieta, California. Local residents rose up in protest and would not allow the buses to unload.  Why are we not seeing that kind of resistance against the Left's government minion's full court press, no-holds-barred assault on our freedom?

I will not give the ministers' names because I think it is unproductive to beat up on people on our side. Focus on defeating our Nemesis, not each other. In response to SCOTUS unlawfully and outrageously cramming same sex marriage down America's throats, I heard a few TV preachers say let's not over react. It is just the world acting like the world.

It felt like the preachers were conceding the point, advising us to speak gently about the topic. Let's just keep our beliefs safe and warm within the walls of our churches. Well guys, the Left “ain't” gonna allow Christians to do that.

When a reporter asked a homosexual activist attorney will there be a “ceasefire” now that they have been given the right to marry, the attorney said absolutely not. She said that while they respect religious rights, they will continue to fight for gays to have the cakes and flowers they want. Do you see the insidious crafty way the attorney solidified the Left's determination to force Christians to act against their faith? Who in the world is stopping gays from having the cakes and flowers they want? Nobody. The Totalitarian attorney is really saying they will not rest until every Christian is government mandated to fully embrace homosexual behavior.

Rush quoted this famous chilling poem by Pastor Martin Niemoller.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I am not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I am not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I am not a Jew.

They came for me –and there was no one left to speak for me.”

What am I saying? I am saying if we passively allow the Left to destroy the Kleins, we are next!

I thought another “Dan's Bake Sale” style rally in Oregon might be in order for the Kleins. Imagine, multiple thousands showing up in support of the Kleins and protesting the Left's unconstitutional tyranny. We would need someone with a big platform like Rush to pull it off.

As I stated earlier folks, I prayerfully covet your ideas and solutions. All I know is We the People can not simply stand idly by and allow what is happening to the Kleins go unabated. Quoting heroic Todd Beamer, “Let's Roll!”

Hi SGT Geresy, Your comments are brilliantly stated. You have explained the Kleins' defense. I pray the Kleins' attorney has your knowledge and fire.

Thoughts on Supreme Court Homosexual Marriage Ruling.

 

It is very clear this ruling violates the US Constitution’s enumerated separation of power.  The main body of the Constitution enumerates and thus limits the powers of the Federal Government.  There is no mention of marriage in Constitution.  Marriage is not a power given to the Federal Government.

Our Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments gives the power on marriage to the states exclusively in the 10th Amendment. 

Amendment X  The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, or to the people.

Those few words may well be the most powerful words in our Constitution.  This greatly limits the power of the Federal government by giving great power to the States or to the individual. 

Without the 10th Amendment, government here would be greatly changed.  There would be no State, County, or City, Village, or Township government.  There would be no Governors, Legislators, Mayors, Boards, or Councils.  There would be positions filled by the Federal Government to administer Federal law locally.  The US House would be our only voice in the Federal Government.  The US Senate would have to become apportioned as our Representatives are as there would no longer be States for them to represent.  This is why our Founding Fathers included the 10th Amendment in the Constitution.

Marriage is thus completely granted to the States.  The Federal Government is denied any power when it comes to what is or is not marriage.  To give the Federal Government any power concerning marriage, a Constitutional Amendment must be passed per the Constitution.

So any Bill passed by Congress and signed into Law by the President is unconstitutional.  Congress can pass a nonbinding resolution on Marriage, but has no power to enforce it.

With all this said, the Federal Courts including the Supreme Court have no Constitutional jurisdiction to hear any case concerning marriage.  They don’t have standing since marriage is reserved to the States.  So in even hearing the case, much less ruling on it, was a violation of the Constitution.  So the ruling is rightfully to be ignored by the States and local governments.

In November of 1971, as a new Airman Basic in Basic Training at Lackland AFB, one of my many classes was about legal and unlawful orders.  To summarize, just because a superior gives you an order, the person must have the power to give you that order, and carrying out the order must not be in violation of regulations and Military Law.  If any are not true, then the subordinate must not carry out the order.

The same is true here.  All officials that took an Oath that incudes “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States” are honor bound to not follow this Supreme Court Ruling. 

I have shown that the ruling of the Supreme Court is in complete violation of the 10th Amendment.  Since this ruling exceeds the limited power of the Federal Government, it is thus invalid and not to be followed.

Marriage is still a power left exclusively to the States to define as they see fit.  Since the Supreme Court exceeded its power, State and local laws are still in effect.

Only State Courts have jurisdiction and standing when it comes to marriage.

What about if a couple goes to a state that allows same sex marriage, but lives in a State that prohibits it.  Article IV, Section 2, answers this question.  All marriages performed in another jurisdiction or state would have to be recognized in all.  So people are allowed to vote with their feet on this issue.

I am sure this will not please all, but it does please the letter of the Constitution.  That is all that is important on the issue.

Some will try to get around this by claiming it is discriminatory for any State to deny homosexual marriage and this gives the Federal Government a voice on the issue.  I think this is a very weak argument at best. 

We discriminate all the time.  We shop at this store rather than that store.  We live here rather than there.  We choose this person to be with rather than that one.  You say you got me with that one, well read on.

Being with a person is not anything that is being prohibited.  It is just what we choose to call it that is being debated.  The great bard Shakespeare once wrote, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."  I think William Shakespeare provides our answer.  We have two terms now in use for marriage, Marriage and Civil Unions.  So long as both are basically equal, there is no discrimination.  So Marriage can be reserved for a man and women.  Civil Union can be used for all others.  Remember, we are only referring to the name.

I think this is the great compromise on what we call it.
