    THE ANSWER AGAINST SCOTUS marriage decision is not to say it is the law of the land. It is to say, it is legally moot, “of no significance or relevance.” because according to our founding documents, this is beyond the power of the court. The second important point is that it is tyrannical to Christians. A little background may help you understand.

    In 2011 barristers from England and lawyers from the US met a few blocks away from where Thomas Jefferson composed the Declaration of Independence. They debated whether the USA had a legal basis to separate from the British Empire. The British said that natural law was not a sufficient basis for separation nor was the Declaration a legal document. The American lawyers won the debate saying both of the exact opposites were true.

    In other words the founders said, because there is a higher law of God any people can under dire circumstances dissolve one government that abuse those God given rights and establish another that will protect those God given rights. And furthermore all those rights entitled people are seen and derived from nature’s laws. This is the legal basis, and the limits of authority of any governance inside out system of government.

    “A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.” –Thomas Jefferson: Rights of British America, 1774. ME 1:209, Papers 1:134

    The court went outside the power of any branch of government according to the founders and thus what they ruled is moot and has no authority over any American. That should be the first argument.

    Then they should say, but so as to help protect this nation from the chaos that could be caused by this grab of infinite power by SCOTUS, I am asking all the citizens of my State and those of America to not try to force, against their consciences, this unlawful ruling on anyone. But two things States can do while we settle this are:

    1. Suspend or eliminate laws on marriage that can be used against Christians; if pushed to that point.

    2. In the mean while, we shall garner all the states to a Convention of States to amend the Constitution to plainly say unmistakably and irrevocably what we already know. Are there any questions?
