Shame on CA Judges

Something shameful has happened in California, the state where I was born and raised. Judges have overturned the voters and are now allowing same-sex marriages. The voters of CA have been mocked and, I'm sure, are left wondering why they voted at all.

While I do not support same-sex marriages and believe marriage is only between one man and one woman, I am equally concerned that a few judges would have so much power as to overturn a decision made by over 60% of the voters. What happened to the voice of the people? Is this the beginning of the unraveling of our governmental system? Why vote if that vote will then be overturned by judges seeking to advance their own political agendas? It's sobering to see this happen.

For a great article on this subject visit here.

Further, when we change the definition of marriage where will it end? Where do we draw the line? How can same-sex marriage be legal, but polygamy is not? Will cousins, siblings, or parents and their children be allowed to marry one another?

Will this be our society's downfall?
