DOMA and The Three Branches of Government According to AG Holder

Posted By CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - Last week  US Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) will no longer be defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in the lawsuits currently pending against it. - DOMA  defines marriage in all federal laws as the union of a man and a woman, and protects the ability of states to not recognize same-sex marriages from other states, but now is under legal challenge.

Soon after the DOJ's announcement,  California Attorney General Kamala Harris demanded the Federal Appelas Court to allow Gay marriages,  NOW!.  The common denominator appears to be that AG Holder, AG Harris  and the President of the US, in word and in deed agree with  Rep. Kucinich that the three branches of the US government consist of the Executive, the House and The Senate - unless of course the Courts agree with their extremist agenda.  As a member of the House LGBT Equality Caucus, Dennis J. Kucinich h has acted to cosponsor 13 out of the 19 bills that make up the LGBT Equality Caucus, for instance.

Shortly after same-sex marriage was forced on Massachusetts by that state's high court,  children were being taught same-sex unions were normal, natural and the moral equivalent of marriage between a man and a woman. Some parents attempted to opt their children out of these public school classes, but were ultimately unsuccessful in a court of law. Two federal courts in Massachusetts, including the appeals court just below the U.S. Supreme Court, determined that, because same-sex marriage was legally recognized in Massachusetts, parents no longer had the right to determine whether or what their children would be taught about these relationships.

As is, increasingly a good  number of public schools are promoting controversial and confusing sexual topics to children with a yet unformed moral compass.  . Homosexual activists groups like GLSEN (The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) sponsor events that discuss homosexuality in thousands of public schools and colleges across the nation. This create a powerful  force of influence:  Consider that a  poll found that nearly three-quarters of those asked could name each of the Three Stooges — Larry, Curly and Moe — but only 42 percent were able to name the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government., including Rep. Kucinich, and apparently AG Harris and AG Holder:  Second-hand information is more hazardous than second-hand smoking.

The present day crisis, not unlike the one which led to WWI and WWII, is due to the fact that the subjective and objective realms disappeared, in what we call the Heisnberg Dilemma.

 On the other hand, in a free society, truth must compete in the market place of ideas through persuasion.  The best way to change hearts and minds is to engage in open and genuine discussion where reason and faith co-exists, heeding the warning issued by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger:  "Reason that operates in specialized areas in fact gain in strength and capability, but because it is standardized according to a single type of certainty and rationality, it no longer offers any perspective on the fundamental questions of mankind, resulting in unhealthy over-development in the realm of technical and pragmatic knowledge."

There are people who make things happen.  People who watch things happen, and people who ask:  what happened?  Now, while Congress is considering whether to step in to defend DOMA legally,  you may want to make things happen:  If there are teens or college students in your life, you might want to let them know about the Focus on the Family Day of Dialogue.  Better yet, you may want to join in the conversation by visiting its Day of Dialogue Facebook® page and leaving a comment.
