VICTORY FOR VOTER RIGHTS AND THE RULE OF LAW IN LOUISIANA

Federal Judge Upholds Louisiana’s Marriage Law, Voter Rights

Sept. 3, 2014

Ruling ends a string of decisions in favor of the fiction of homosexual “marriage” after the Supreme Court struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act, but ruled that Marriage was a public policy issue, not a constitutional right.

A federal judge in Louisiana ruled in favor of the state’s constitutional right to define the institution of Marriage Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman said in his ruling that the anti-Voter Rights plaintiffs failed to show the state’s definition of Marriage violated the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees equal protection under the law and a right to due process. He also held that Louisiana has the authority, under the U.S. Constitution, to set its own definition of Marriage.

The anti-Voter Rights plaintiffs in the case included homosexual individuals who were so-called “married” in states outside Louisiana and want their so-called “marriage” to be recognized there, two unmarried individuals who wanted to tie the knot in Louisiana and the extremist hate group Forum for Equality Louisiana. That latter fringe group plans to appeal Judge Feldman’s decision.

Feldman’s decision breaks a pattern of corrupt, outlaw judges deciding in favor of the fiction of homosexual “marriage” following the Supreme Court’s ruling in United States v. Windsor, a 2013 ruling in which part of the Defense of Marriage Act was wrongly struck down. The court in Windsor, however, ruled that Marriage is a public policy issue, not one of constitutional law, that states have the historic right to regulate Marriage within their borders.

Over 20 cases involving homosexual so-called “marriage” have been decided in federal courts since the highest court’s decision in Windsor.

“This ruling is an important victory for voter rights, constitutional liberties, and the Rule of Law in Louisiana. Every honest and competent judge in America would have ruled this same way,” stated Florida Democratic League President Sara Espinoza.
