Blaze and Spitfire AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Texas always makes a stand against most any unjust ruling by our tyrannical government and the same-sex marriage ruling is no different. Lets hope this spreads to other states. Attorney General Ken Paxton today made the following statement and issued an opinion in response to questions about the impact of Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that redefined marriage:

The Attorney General Of Texas Ken Paxton:

“Friday, the United States Supreme Court again ignored the text and spirit of the Constitution to manufacture a right that simply does not exist. In so doing, the Court weakened itself and weakened the rule of law, but did nothing to weaken our resolve to protect religious liberty and return to democratic self-government in the face of judicial activists attempting to tell us how to live.

“Indeed, for those who respect the rule of law, this lawless ruling presents a fundamental dilemma: A ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court is considered the law of the land, but a judge-made edict that is not based in the law or the Constitution diminishes faith in our system of government and the rule of law.

“Now hundreds of Texas public officials are seeking guidance on how to implement what amounts to a lawless decision by an activist Court while adhering both to their respective faiths and their responsibility to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution. Here is where things currently stand:

“Pursuant to the Court’s flawed ruling, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas issued an injunction against the enforcement of Texas marriage laws that define marriage as one man and one woman and therefore those laws currently are enjoined from being enforced by county clerks and justices of the peace. There is not, however, a court order in place in Texas to issue any particular license whatsoever – only the flawed direction by the U.S. Supreme Court on Constitutionality and applicable state laws.

“Importantly, the reach of the Court’s opinion stops at the door of the First Amendment and our laws protecting religious liberty. Even the flawed majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges acknowledged there are religious liberty protections of which individuals may be able to avail themselves. Our religious liberties find protection in state and federal constitutions and statutes. While they are indisputably our first freedom, we should not let them be our last.”

“In the Attorney General’s opinion my office issued in response to Lt. Governor Patrick’s request for guidance, we find that although it fabricated a new constitutional right in 2015, the Supreme Court did not diminish, overrule, or call into question the First Amendment rights to free exercise of religion that formed the first freedom in the Bill of Rights in 1791. This newly invented federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage should peaceably coexist alongside longstanding constitutional and statutory rights, including the rights to free exercise of religion and speech. This opinion concludes that:

“County clerks and their employees retain religious freedoms that may allow accommodation of their religious objections to issuing same-sex marriage licenses. The strength of any such claim depends on the particular facts of each case.

“Justices of the peace and judges similarly retain religious freedoms, and may claim that the government cannot force them to conduct same-sex wedding ceremonies over their religious objections, when other authorized individuals have no objection, because it is not the least restrictive means of the government ensuring the ceremonies occur. The strength of any such claim depends on the particular facts of each case.”

The attorney General had previously spoke against the ruling and I’m glad to see him stick to his core principles, we need more people of character in positions to make a difference. To often we see politicians change their stance on many issues in order to fit their own agendas. It is hard to argue his statements in which he said:

“Today’s ruling by five Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court marks a radical departure from countless generations of societal law and tradition. The impact of this opinion on our society and the familial fabric of our nation will be profound. Far from a victory for anyone, this is instead a dilution of marriage as a societal institution.

“What is most disturbing is the extent to which this opinion is yet another assault on the actual text of the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law itself. Just as Roe v. Wade ripped from the hands of the American people the issue of life and placed it in the judge-made ‘penumbras’ of the Constitution, so has this opinion made clear that our governing document – the protector of our liberties through representative government – can be molded to mean anything by unelected judges.

“But no court, no law, no rule, and no words will change the simple truth that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. Nothing will change the importance of a mother and a father to the raising of a child. And nothing will change our collective resolve that all Americans should be able to exercise their faith in their daily lives without infringement and harassment.

“It is not acceptable that people of faith be exposed to such abuse. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects our religious liberty and shields people of faith from such persecution, but those aspects of its protections have been denigrated by radicals, echoed by the media and an increasingly-activist judiciary. Consistent with existing federal and state Religious Freedom Restoration Acts that should already protect religious liberty and prevent discrimination based on religion, we must work to ensure that the guarantees of the First Amendment, protecting freedom of religion, and its corollary freedom of conscience, are secure for all Americans.

“Despite this decision, I still have faith in America and the American people. We must be vigilant about our freedom and must use the democratic process to make sure America lives up to its promise as a land of freedom, religious tolerance and hope.”

Whether you support same-sex marriage or not most would agree that government has grown to big and taking decisions out of the hands of the state only pushes their control to a new level. A decision that is so debated should not be decided by so few in my eye’s, what are your thoughts?

God Bless. Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS

    Sounds like the man is a spoiled brat who is going to take his ball home ’cause he doesn’t like the game. The guy CLAIMS he supports the US Constitution, but he is a liar. He doesn’t like their decision, tough. Either get the law change nationwide or abide by the US Constitution you CLAIM you support. You don’t get to decide which provisions you’ll follow and which you will not. You may not agree, you might not like, but if you claim to support the US Constitution, you MUST ABIDE by the decision reached by the US Supreme Court.

    • Don't be so butthurt says:

      The constitution says I have the right to my freedom of religion and my religion does not agree with same sex marriage so there for if the SCOTUS some how MADE a law saying I have to do something that goes against one of the oldest standing rights known to man(and woman) then how can it in fact be a law when it violates my constitionaly protected rights? See there, the Constitution protects one right but SCOTUS violates that right. Does that mean I have to listen to SCOTUS because they say so? After all, we did have the right to own slaves but CONGRESS MADE a law to change that, NOT the Supreme Court. CONGRESS makes the laws and the SCOTUS enforces them. There is no federal law that states two men can get married, the feds gave that choice,to the state and now the feds are trying to act as if it is their choice.

      So in fact, you are wrong. Don’t like it? Move, stay out of Texas or, deal with it.

      • Samuel Stein says:

        BINGO!

      • SCOTUS interprets the law. Congress and the states make all kinds of laws and SCOTUS is the final word on how those laws relate to reach other. If someone passes a law that says you can’t have guns anymore, SCOTUS (that’s a pretty obvious one so the chances of that making it as far as that are slim) is the final stop to have that law declared unconstitutional. Same deal here. They did what they’re specifically meant to do. The laws banning same sex marriage violated the constitution so they were struck down.

        Also it doesn’t violate your rights any more than it violates someone else’s rights when you exercise your freedom to own a gun. They may not like it, but its none of their business.

        Don’t like it? Move out of America or deal with it.

          Freedom of Religion and 2nd are two different subjects . I am a Christian and do not believe in same sex marriage ; I do not condemn you or attack you for your beliefs ; because of this, ( Freedom of Religion and Christianity ) , you , nor scotus , can force a Christian church to marry same sex .
          It is not ” don`t like it ? ” move out or deal with it ; that is your own opinion and that is not correct . You want same sex marriages ?? No Problems ; ask scotus to form and establish clerks to perform same sex marriages paid by you and the LGBT ; Do Not expect my Taxes to pay for it . Scotus can do what he wants , but can`t make Laws ; my Freedom of Religion is mine and can`t be changed to allow same sex marriages .
          Please Respect my Rights , my Beliefs and my Christianity .

          • Brandon Lee says:

            My taxes pay for your heterosexual marriages to be performed
            So tit for tat

          • raffaelecafagna says:

            I don`t think so , I paid out of my pocket , 30 years ago when none of this same sex existed ; not yours . Beside all this crap ; if you want your same sex marriage ,you have to find someone to perform it , not Christian , not a Church ; because it is against my beliefs , against our Christianity and Freedom of Religion . I am not stopping you , I am not against you , I have nothing against your feelings and desires , I am not judging you or telling you what to do ; all I am saying is : Respect my Freedom of Religion and Christianity . Is that Too Much for you to understand .????Thanks and have a very blessed day ; I have nothing against you .

    • raffaelecafagna says:

      NO he is not a liar ; He`s telling you : Respect my Freedom of Religion ; something that you don`t understand or ignore it . No I do not have to ABIDE ; my Rights are protected by Freedom of Religion , Christianity , God , the Bible . I have nothing against same sex and LGBT ; if you like it , good for you ; I am not interested and all Christians feel the same . Your Preferences are yours ; no one is telling you what to do ; no one is condemning you ; all we are saying is : Respect Freedom of Religion and our Christianity . Thanks and have a Blessed day.

  2. The supreme court did NOT follow the constitution so their decision is mute. God made marriage not men.

  3. Jack B Nimble says:

    Paxton belongs in jail. Whether or not he agrees with the SCOTUS decision is irrelevant. He has sworn an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States. And sorry, unless you’re a supreme court justice, the constitutionality of any law (like it or not) is not up to you.

    • Samuel Stein says:

      The members of SCOTUS appear to have violated their oaths of office. In addition, the Judicial Branch, of our Government (like it or not) can neither “make” law nor “modify” law . Only the Legislative Branch can. It’s time for a number of SCOTUS Justices to be impeached. God bless Attorney General Ken Paxton, for addressing this issue, correctly, in the name of true justice.

      • Jack B Nimble says:

        SCOTUS did not make or modify any new laws here. That’s just claptrap that you blurt out because they didn’t rule the way you want. The 14th amendment guarantees equal treatment under the law for all regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation & that is what guided the court in their decision. Ken Paxton is a criminal & hypocrite as an attorney general who demands that everyone obey the law…. except when SCOTUS rules in a way that he doesn’t like. He’ll be forced to obey soon enough or spend time behind bars…….as he should.

        • raffaelecafagna says:

          S.C.O.T.U.S forgot all about Freedom of Religion ,God , Christianity , the Bible .
          scotus does not have the power to make Laws.
          Christians do not have to Obey this Law .

          • Jack B Nimble says:

            SCOTUS made no new laws. SCOTUS adjudicated this case against the 14th amendment, equal treatment under the law for ALL & declared that same sex marriage bans are unconstitutional. Your silly little made up religion doesn’t make the law, that’s just a delusion in your head. And yes, Texas must now issue licenses for gay couples….. like it or not. Nothing YOU can do about it.

          • raffaelecafagna says:

            Honestly I don`t give a fu#$ about any of these rules ; do not affect me or are a concern to me; so go and be happy with your same sex stuff . Thank you and Bless you into your lifestyle and adventure .

          • raffaelecafagna says:

            Justice Kennedy s opinion for a 5-4 majority of the Supreme Court has rightly been condemned for its lack of grounding in the Constitutional text he is sworn to uphold. Unable to find gay marriage in either the due process clause or the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, Kennedy ultimately rests his case on what Justice Clarence Thomas sarcastically called the dignity clause of the Constitution.

    • raffaelecafagna says:

      you are uninformed and confused ; The Supreme Court has no jurisdiction in Religion Read the Constitution. Congress shall make no law concerning religion or the establishment there of … it is an attempt to create a Humanistic Theocracy and legislate Religion which is
      forbidden..

      • Jack B Nimble says:

        SCOTUS has full jurisdiction when adjudicating against the 14th amendment, equal treatment under the law for ALL. No new law was made, only hateful state based same sex marriage bans found to be unconstitutional. You sir, are the one who is uninformed & confused. Your religion has no jurisdiction when it comes to civil law.

  4. Michelle M says:

    I am glad to be a Texan!

  5. Skip Pallo says:

    I agree the Supreme Court got it wrong but consider this implication, I will be the first to point out that
    this is a Humanistic Theocracy forced on the American people in an attempt to rewrite Biblical Authority which it can never do an foster contempt for the Biblical Authority in the Home.. forcing Religion to accept on the basis of equality it coming in the back door trying to rewrite Biblical Authority. The Supreme Court has no jurisdiction in Religion Read the Constitution. Congress shall make no law concerning religion or the establishment there of … it is an attempt to create a Humanistic Theocracy and legislate Religion which is
    forbidden.. force them to recognize what they have done. God is greatly to be feared… We ought to obey God rather than men… Their is no fear of God before their eyes… You cannot vote religious obedience into Religion, just like Hillary Clinton… Religion doen’t change because Politicians and Globalist have an agenda.

  6. How exactly is this in line with the “Freedom Fighters” theme you have going on here… this seems like oppression fighting to me. Freedom is when you don’t have to seek anyone’s agreement or permission for something, but here you seem to think that because you don’t like this thing then no one else should be allowed to do it. Our tyrannical government just became less tyrannical and you don’t like that?

    I mean, even if you don’t like gay marriage, why would you want the GOVERNMENT to be the thing stopping it? Or do you like the idea of pouring massive amounts of your tax dollars into a useless fight in hopes that the government will impose MORE morality laws and hence tell you more about how you have to live your life?

    If you like freedom and small government then let it go. Any thing else directly opposes what you otherwise claim to care about.

  7. George L Smith III says:

    The decision of the Supreme Court only opened up the can of worms that will allow people to file suit against churches that refuse because of their faith to perform their numptuals. It all started with homosexuals demanding baked goods and flowers from specific vendors they KNEW objected to the concept of same-sex marriages due to their faith. Other vendors of the same products were available but because homosexuals wanted to destroy a specific vendor known to have religious misgivings to that way of life. Next will be the specific targeting of Churches and Pastor’s who preach heterosexual marriage. Churches who follow a doctrine of heterosexual marriage will have to go underground to avoid the wrath, and protect their coffers. The 14th amendment was used by the SUPREME COURT to destroy the 1st amendment..
