Courts Undermine Self-Governance in Michigan?

ByUSDR

U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman, struck down the Michigan constitutional marriage amendment which had been approved by nearly 60 percent of the state’svoters.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the followingstatement:

“This judicial activist stampede to redefine marriage is making a mockery of the ideals that our Founding Fathers stood for. The Left continues to push their social agenda into the courtrooms to demand the change that voters won’t give them. With their ballot box options very limited, these activists have focused their attention on the federal bench – raising the eyebrows and ire of the very Americans they hoped topersuade.

“One by one federal courts are vaporizing the right to self-governance. This is not just an attack on marriage, but an attack on the rule of law. It is not the role of judges to redefine our most fundamental societal institution which has such far-reaching implications for society at everylevel.

“Rather than repeat the disaster of Roe v. Wade and redefine marriage for all fifty states, we expect the Supreme Court to return to the people and their elected representatives the right to decide the future of marriage,” concludedPerkins.
