Judicial Tyranny Strikes Again: Homosexual Marriage Imposed on D.C. Voters

WASHINGTON,—In a 5-4 decision, the D.C. Court of Appeals held today that “We the People” do not have the right to vote on the issue of same-sex “marriage.” Penny Nance, Chief Executive Officer of Concerned Women for America (CWA), denounced the opinion, saying:

“The D.C Court of Appeals strikes at the heart of democracy with this activist ruling. The Court went outside the law (the Charter Amendments Act), buying the argument that the law cannot be read literally, to deny the residents of the District their right to self-government.

“Knowing that whenever the issue of homosexual marriage is left to the voters the people overwhelmingly choose to protect traditional marriage and recognize only marriages between one man and one woman, a handful of activist judges who want to promote what they see as a desirable policy for our country, have taken matters into their own hands and imposed homosexual marriage by judicial fiat.

“No question, the case should be appealed to the United States Supreme Court. This case goes to the fundamental issue of our right to self-government. We hope the Supreme Court affirms this right and rejects the idea that no rules apply when it comes to homosexual ‘rights.’

“This case is just the latest example of the judicial tyranny CWA’s more than 500,000 members around the country are committed to fighting. It highlights the importance of the current nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, someone who has already circumvented the law to impose homosexual ‘rights’ in denying access to the military recruiters at Harvard Law School. And it reminds senators of how important their ‘advice and consent’ role is when selecting judges.”

Concerned Women for America is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization.
