Rights vs. Morality

I read an editorial in the Ball State student-published newspaper this morning. The author of the column basically said that George W. Bush wants to add an amendment to the Constitution that will permanently fix homosexuals as second-class citizens by limiting their rights and freedoms. This, again, is an example of the fact that the world just does not understand. This proposed amendment has absolutely nothing to do with freedoms or rights. It does, however, have everything to do with morality, with right and wrong. Homosexuality is wrong, pure and simple. And it is imperative that an amendment be written and passed because of the liberal courts that are abusing the legal system and violating state laws that ban homosexual marriages.

On a similar note, I just wish people would stand up and pay as much attention to other issues of morality as they have to this one, issues like adultery, gambling, alcohol abuse, pornography, etc. But those things have all become part of the status quo, part of the norm, and I think that, given enough time, homosexual marriage may pass into the realm of the humdrum-everyday occurrences, without an amendment.

Ridiculous Litigation

Something that has come to my attention this morning on the political front pertains to the judiciary. A number of illegal aliens were arrested last week (all were Wal-Mart employees) and will soon be deported back to their homeland of Mexico. However, in the meantime, nine of these illegals are suing Wal-Mart for discrimination for not paying them overtime. The sad thing is, they will probably win the suit because there are liberal judges who fail to do their duty to protect the citizens of this country from such abuses as these. The judiciary in this country has gained far too much power, and all in the name of protecting Constitutional rights. Frankly, it’s ridiculous! Common sense has ceased to rule, being usurped by the political agendas of the few sitting behind the bench. And when a move is made to appoint judges who will exercise fairness and justice as it is intended to be exercised, that move it typically blocked by those who care little about such things. The people need to step up and elect officials who will appoint fair judges who will actually fight for the people and make decisions that are in the best interests of the country.
