DID Love Win??

Lately, especially after the Obamacare ruling, I have not been a big fan of Chief Justice John Roberts, or the Supreme Court in general. The Supreme Court has taken over the role of Congress by making laws, not interpreting laws, as it was meant to do according to the United States Constitution.

But Justice Roberts at least has seen some of the repercussions to Religious Freedom with the court’s ruling on same-sex-marriage. And it is chilling.

Roberts wrote in his dissent: “Hard questions arise when people of faith exercise religion in ways that may be seen to conflict with the new right to same-sex marriage — when, for example, a religious college provides married student housing only to opposite-sex married couples, or a religious adoption agency declines to place children with same-sex married couples.”

He continued, “Indeed, the Solicitor General candidly acknowledged that the tax exemptions of some religious institutions would be in question if they opposed same-sex marriage. See Tr. of Oral Arg. on Question 1, at 36–38. There is little doubt that these and similar questions will soon be before this Court. Unfortunately, people of faith can take no comfort in the treatment they receive from the majority today.”

Still, the ruling has been met with gleeful words: Love Wins.

Love wins? Since when is it appropriate for the Supreme Court to rule into law their opinions on love? Since when is it appropriate for the Court to rule out the laws of God?

Is it love to take away religious freedom? I would call it force. And genuine love CANNOT be forced.

Love Wins is just another politically correct, hypocritical slogan used by those who scream for tolerance–but only if it benefits themselves.

The following is a 2012 video featuring Cardinal Francis George before his death in April of this year. Great words indeed.

    Thank you, Kaye. I was considering posting something similar to this. I thought, “If God is love, and God didn’t win, then love didn’t win, either.” How ridiculous to base the foundation of a society on the nebulous, secular definition of love. What do they think love is, anyway? Freedom to marry whomever we want? Does that mean since I love my dog, I can marry her? Or what if I say I love my brother, so I want to marry him (yuck)?! I mean, where does it end?

    I also finished reading your novella, “Mary’s Mountain” while I was on the airplane last week. Fabulous. Fantastic read…and very timely. I will post a review soon! You are an amazing writer, Kaye.

  3. Thanks Kaye. I love knowing that a sister down South has some good sense about these things. Praying for you from the North! Please do the same for us. 🙂
