news bits from here and there dissenting u.s supreme court justice calls gay marriage decision a jawdropping edict ­ as all readers know the u.s supreme court by a closely divided 5-4 vote overturned both the doma [defense of marriage act and the voter passed california constitutional amendment concerning heterosexual marriage in defense of their actions it should be noted that justices alito roberts scalia and thomas all voted correctly in favor of marriage as recorded history has defined it throughout the human ages unfortunately one justice justice anthony kennedy cast the deciding vote that undermined both the meaning and impact of genuine marriage in a blistering rebuke of the supreme court decision to overturn the defense of marriage act justice antonin scalia said the self-governing power of the people had been eroded in his dissenting opinion scalia wrote that today s opinion aggrandizes the power of the court to pronounce the law it will have the predictable consequence of diminishing `the power of our people to govern themselves scalia described the `assertion of judicial supremacy over the peoples representatives in congress and the executive as `jaw dropping scalia stated it envisions a supreme court standing or rather enthroned at the apex of government empowered to decide all constitutional questions of law always and everywhere `primary in its role this image of the court would have been unrecognizable to those who wrote and ratified our national charter scalia had particular disdain for fellow justice anthony kennedy s ruling in the 5-4 case saying it opened the door for a federal law allowing same-sex marriage scalia also wrote that by formally declaring anyone opposed to same-sex marriage an enemy of human decency the majority arms well every challenger to a state law restricting marriage to its traditional definition the result will be a judicial distortion of our society s debate over marriage via the august 2013 4·the voice in the wilderness august 2013 virtual edition
