Watchwoman: [KJV – Isaiah 5:20] “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” —  The woe-begotten wicked judges in California’s 9th Circuit that voted to promote sodomy and all the other evil sinfulness that will end up being covered because of their evil intent to allow the legal connection by government consent, that God has already ruled on to be reserved for only one man and one woman, the Institution of Marriage, will answer for their wicked decisions that will enable governments to encourage with complicity, leading men and women into sin and darkness.  One nano-second or less immediately after their darkened, evil hearts stop beating on planet earth and they enter into eternity, they will face the God of the Universe and the Law-Maker and Giver!  God Almighty will Judge them for their wickedness!  And when that fateful moment comes to pass, for it is already predestinated in time in solid concrete, if they have not already repented and made restitution for their evilness, having begged Jesus Christ to cover their evil sinful decisions and accepted Him as their Lord and Savior, serving him faithfully and taking the message of repentance for all the world to hear for having decided in their evil decisions against God’s Laws about the Institution of Marriage, they will face all eternity in torment!  Satan will laugh as he accuses them standing before the God of the Bible, the Judge of the Universe, and he will enjoy every moment their bodies burn in agony without reprieve for everlasting, where there is no chance for repentance.

[KJV – Hebrews 9:27]  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

[KJV – 2 Chronicles 19:6]  And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment.

[KJV – Jeremiah 5:4]  Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God.

[KJV – Luke 10:14]  But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.

[KJV – Romans 2:3]  And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

[KJV – 2 Corinthians 5:10]  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

9th Circuit: California Marriage Amendment Unconstitutional

In a split decision, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals today ruled the California amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman unconstitutional.

ProtectMarriage.com, the coalition of groups defending the amendment, known as Prop. 8, in court, said they will decide next week whether to file their appeal with the full retinue of judges at the 9th Circuit or the U.S. Supreme Court immediately. . No same-sex marriages will take place in California until all appeals have been exhausted.

The decision “is completely out of step with every other federal appellate and Supreme Court decision in American history on the subject of marriage,” Legal Counsel Andy Pugno said.

The judges did not address the constitutionality of same-sex marriage per se, but rather the circumstances under which the amendment defining it was passed in California: In 2008, the state Supreme Court unilaterally declared gay marriage legal, despite the fact that a ballot measure banning it had been passed in 2000. The Prop. 8 petition drive was nearly complete when the state Supreme Court made its decision — ignoring requests from family advocates to wait until the people had had a chance to speak on the issue.

The majority wrote that because the state Supreme Court had granted a “right” that was later removed, Prop. 8 violates both the California and U.S. constitutions.

“We’re disappointed in today’s decision, but it was not entirely unexpected, given the record of the 9th Circuit,” said CitizenLink Judicial Issues Analyst Bruce Hausknecht, noting that the 9th is the most often-overturned federal appellate court in the nation. “Opponents of Prop. 8 insist on changing the definition of marriage for everyone, including children who deserve the opportunity to grow up in a home with their own married mother and father.

“But no judge has the right to redefine marriage. Doing so redefines parenthood, and offers yet another instance of social engineering based on the desires of adults rather than the interests of children. We’ve already seen, and continue to suffer from, the effects of divorce, unwed births and fatherlessness on children and families. This latest tinkering with marriage to remove mothers and fathers as an essential element of family poses serious ramifications for future generations.

“The long road to vindicating the right of more than 7 million California voters to establish public policy in this case continues.”

The Alliance Defense Fund agreed.

“No court should undercut the democratic process by taking the power to preserve marriage out of the hands of the people,” said ADF Senior Counsel Brian Raum. “Americans overwhelmingly reject the idea of changing the definition of marriage. Sixty-three million Americans in 31 state elections have voted on marriage, and 63 percent voted to preserve marriage as the timeless, universal, unique union between husband and wife.”
