U.S. Supreme Court on Marriage: I Warned of What Was Coming . . . and Is Yet to Come

Those of us who have been following culture for years are not surprised by the U.S. Supreme Court

destroying marriage.

But some culture followers are surprised at the hostility rendered in the Supreme Court decision. As Justice Scalia wrote in his dissent:
It is one thing for a society to elect change; it is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race.
But I was not surprised.

In fact, I warned at least as early as 2011 that the so-called social issues were the most important of issues.

Furthermore, I warned of the danger of Big Sodomy. I correctly identified sodomites as enemies years before the U.S. Supreme Court identified people like me as, “Hostes Humani Generis.” (In fact, I had called them, “Hostis Humani Generis,” but that was deemed “too extreme” at the time and thus was edited out of the final version.)

Some might say that I was no better in calling sodomites what they truly are. Yet there is nothing wrong with correctly identifying people as something they are, just as there is something wrong with incorrectly identifying people as something they are not. In short, it is right to condemn evil; it is wrong to condemn good.

It is similar to the whole debate raging over when it is right—moral—to kill versus when it isn’t.
I mentioned that I warned in 2011 that the so-called social issues were the most important of issues. Obviously the majority of people (on the right, at least) thought differently.

Yet now that the U.S. Supreme Court killed marriage, maybe people will change their mind.
