Having read the articles and the postings the following can be stated:
The problem here is that most judges are under the sway of the population and the Tennessee court’s ruling puts the entire legal system at risk of
collapse. It shows a fundamental problem in the court, where judges and justices are having to run for election, and thus can be put under political
pressure for their action. The very decisions that they make, if they rule, based on a political stance, and not one based on sound judicial
precedence, would be suspect. Consider this, if the judges in this case do not record or write down their very reason for the decision that they have
made, or fail to justify it with precedent, then the ruling is invalid and the entire trial either has to be retried or it can now be over turned by a
higher court on the basis that the lower court was in error and failed in its job.
A judge cannot simply just rule, and say this is the verdict, he has to justify said ruling and write it down, including any and all references to
such in his verdict and opinion. He cannot simply state this is how it is and that is that, as then it opens the door to judicial misconduct on the
part of the judges. It also means that a judge can be bought and is no better than a politician.
For those that think that this decision by this judge, is a good one, fail to see that with one ruling and his decision, just invalidated the marriage
of more than just homosexuals, but all of those people who are sterile, or who are past child bearing years. It invalidates all those marriages where
people do not want children or cannot have children. If that ruling stands, based on the decision of that judge, then it could and will be used as a
reason for a whole sling of other rulings and court cases, including the government intrusion into medical and private issues. And it will challenge
federal law and the constitution itself.
Marriage is a contract, and as with all contracts, they are, under the Constitution allowed and supposed to be valid in all 50 states. Should this
decision uphold, in short those in the state of Tennessee, will now, using this decision, be able to justify the refusal to honor any contracts that
originate outside of that state, and vice versa. It can also turn around and then justify the State’s ability to control reproductive issues in
both men and women.
Think about it, under this Judge’s decision, the point of marriage is to procreate, and now the state can come in and ban if not criminalize all
things that prevent such, from condoms to vasectomy’s to abortions and use this as justification for their decision. That is if it withstands the
decision of a higher court ruling.
