Is the American majority’s will to defend natural marriage against the rainbow of perverse counterfeits dead? Has America become a Judiciocracy ruled by a bevy of black-robed autocrats?

Not if you ask the thousands who marched on Washington Thursday in this year’s “March for Marriage” rally. Not if you ask potential 2016 presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

They took on the counter-constitutional idea of judicial supremacy. They defended true marriage.

The Politico reports:

[Mike] Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and the March for Marriage rally’s final speaker, didn’t dance around his feelings about what he viewed as gross judicial overstep [imposing same-sex “marriage” via judicial fiat].

“Judicial supremacy is a curse upon this great Republic,” he told the crowd at the rally, organized in part by the National Organization for Marriage, calling the Supreme Court rulings the “greatest heresy of our time.”

He went on to argue that the president and Congress were not required to redefine what he deemed natural laws — including marriage — no matter what rulings “nine people in robes” might hand down from the bench.

“The government doesn’t give us our rights,” he said. “The government only has the responsibility to protect the rights God gave us.”

Huckabee also criticized President Barack Obama’s changed stance on gay marriage.

“I agreed with Barack Obama in August 2008,” he said, citing Obama’s “God is in the mix” justification for being unable to support gay marriage at the time. “It’s what you say now I take issue with.”

Former Pennsylvania senator and 2012 presidential candidate Rick Santorum focused on the critical importance of the institution of legitimate marriage:

“Marriage is not just a romantic relationship between two people,” he said. One tenet of marriage, he said, is having and raising children.

Santorum used his speech as a call to action, laying part of the blame for the current social climate at the feet of the [pro-marriage] movement’s failure to define marriage in the face of change.

“We can’t blame those who want to move same-sex marriage,” Santorum said. “We are the ones to blame.”

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), like Huckabee, blasted the idea that “unelected judges” could define marriage. Huelskamp is known for introducing a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage.

“We know the truth will win in the end,” Huelskamp said. “It’s what stands between us and the victory at the end.”

He ended his remarks by calling upon the men in the crowd to recommit themselves to their wives and children.

Other speakers included federal and state legislators and candidates, religious leaders and representatives from organizations like The Heritage Foundation. The speakers didn’t ignore the political implications of the number of anti-same-sex marriage Hispanic groups.

“I’m seeing a whole lot of minorities stand up for marriage,” Tamara Scott of The Family Leader said, warning political parties to pay attention.

Just after 1 p.m., the marchers made their way to the Supreme Court. …

Here’s what marriage is: The God-ordained, lifelong, covenantal union between man and wife, designed to provide men, women and children optimal stability and overall well-being. Marriage is that biologically, spiritually and morally centered institution calculated to ensure responsible procreation and perpetuate the human race. Marriage – real marriage – represents the fundamental cornerstone of any healthy society (any society that hopes to survive, at least).

Here’s what marriage is not: Anything else.

In short, marriage is what it is.

It was refreshing to see these transcendent truths hammered home in our Nation’s capital Thursday. This was a clarion call.

America, let’s answer it.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
