Federal judge, homosexuality are wrong

It seems as though the editor of the Andalusia Star-News takes the side of homosexuals and federal judges. We used to have state rights in the constitution but it seems as though the federal government has taken the state rights from us as American citizens.

Here’s the Star-News column to which Mullen takes offense

We the people of Alabama voted a law several years ago against same-sex marriage. Over 90 percent of the vote was to prohibit gay marriage, but it seems as though one woman, a federal judge, has more power than the people of this state. The majority is supposed to rule, not the minority, but in this country, it’s the other way around. Minority rules! Our founding fathers would be ashamed of what’s going on in this country today.

The federal judges have more power than anyone in t his country. They are appointed by the president, not voted on by the people, so they can do whatever they want. To make it worse, they are appointed for life and there is nothing we can do about their rulings.

I stand with Roy Moore and Ben Bowden for they took a stand against unconstitutional decision making. I wish the Andalusia Star-News editor would write an explanation how a federal law against marijuana can be broken by tow (or more) states in this country and the federal government does nothing about it. There is a federal law against marijuana , but it’s OK for these states to break the law? If Alabama passed a law like that, the federal government would say, “You cannot do that.” The Obama administration turns their heads and lets the states pass these laws but Alabama cannot pass immigration laws or same-sex marriage laws. What is wrong with our government? What is wrong with people who think they know what’s best for the people of Alabama? Let the people decide our future, not a government or a judge. Our constitution very clearly says that we the people vote for the laws of this country. The Bible tells us we should pray for homosexuals (all sinners) and I try to. I think of what Jesus said 2,000 years ago while dying on the cross for (all of) our sins, “God, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
