Bill'd Nullify SCOTUS same-sex 'Marriage'
April 24, 2017 - North Carolina Bill Would Nullify SCOTUS Same-sex Marriage Opinion.
When the Supreme Court issued its unconstitutional faux (same-sex)-marriage opinion in June 2015, it sought to rob states’ power to formulate marriage law. Now North Carolina is fighting back with a bill that would nullify that Obergefell v. Hodges opinion.
Filed April 11 by four Republican lawmakers, House Bill 780, also known as the “Uphold Historical Marriage Act,” states, “Marriages, whether created by common law, contracted, or performed outside of 34 North Carolina, between individuals of the same gender are not valid in North Carolina.”
The bill correctly asserts that SCOTUS overstepped its constitutional bounds on government recognition of faux marriage. It states, “The General Assembly of the State of North Carolina declares that the Obergefell v. Hodges decision of the United States Supreme Court of 2015 is null and void in the State of North Carolina, and that the State of North Carolina shall henceforth uphold and enforce Section 6 of Article XIV of the North Carolina Constitution, the opinion and objection of the United States Supreme Court notwithstanding.”
The four representatives floating the bill, Larry Pittman, Michael Speciale, Carl Ford, and Mike Clampitt, also note “that the U.S. Constitution does not give power to the federal government to create laws surrounding the institution of marriage, and that the issue is rather reserved to the states,” writes Christian News.
