Same Sex Marriage: Who Decides? (Townhall.com) July 25, 2008

While everyone debates same-sex marriage, we should also remember   how we got here. As in Massachusetts a few years ago, it was not the people or the elected branches of government that redefined marriage for our society, but four lawyers in black robes.

Much of the frustration over the social revolution in our country is that courts have become the engine of change, not the brakes they were intended to be.  From abortion to same-sex marriage, judges are no longer checks on the other branches but engines of social change.
Unfortunately the people are left with little recourse against the courts.  One is to amend the Constitution, as the people of California may do this fall.  The other is to vote against continuing Chief Justice Ronald George when he’s up for confirmation in 2010.
