More and more, from California to Connecticut to Florida, black-robed tyrants are exceeding their powers, forcing their personal ideas and agendas on America. They are acting like lawmakers instead of law enforcers and law interpreters.
OneNewsNow.com posted the following polling question today on its website. The question was based on one of its recent articles, “Christian lawyer calls for ouster of 'activist' judge.” Here is the poll question and my response.
Do you think activist judges should be voted out of office?
1. __X__ Yes
2. _____ No
3. _____ Unsure
According to the OneNewsNow.com article cited above, Mat Staver, a Christian lawyer and Dean of Liberty University Law School, contends that the Miami-Dade Circuit Judge, Cindy Lederman, who recently ruled against Florida's ban on homosexual adoption, should run for the legislature if she wants to practice activism.
The article quotes Staver, “In the short-term, this judge's ruling is merely a tempest in a teapot, but in the long-term, it means nothing. The courts will clearly overturn this judge's ruling on appeal. This law has previously been challenged and upheld by both the state and federal appeals courts."
According to the article cited above, the judge’s ruling will permit 47 year-old homosexual Frank Martin Gill, to adopt two young brothers who have been his foster children since 2004. I do not think that Gill should have even been permitted to serve as a foster parent for these boys. The homosexual lifestyle is unhealthy, immoral, unnatural and abnormal. This is not the ideal situation to raise children. Actually, children need a loving mother and father to have the greatest opportunity to grow into a wholesome, well-adjusted persons.
According to an article in the New York Times, “The state (of Florida) presented experts who argued that there was a higher incidence of drug and alcohol abuse among same-sex couples, that their relationships were less stable than those of heterosexuals, and that their children suffered a societal stigma.” Obviously Judge Lederman didn’t buy that argument.
I agree with Staver that this judge is an “ideological activist.” Judges should enforce the law, not change it. This particular judge is an elected office and should be voted out of office at the next opportunity, if not impeached sooner.
This ruling is being appealed. The ban against homosexual marriage has been effect since 1977. Staver advises Lederman and other “activist judges” to run for the legislature if they are bent on being activists and wanting to create new laws. I agree. It is time to put an end to judicial tyranny across the board, from Judge Ledermans to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsberg and all they tyrant in between . . .
