[Publisher's Note]: Massachusetts was the first state to allow
so-called same-sex “marriage.” Here is a classic Joe Sobran column written in 2003 discussing marriage, divorce, contraception, sin,
rationalization, perversion — and the stellar example of his stepfather.
[Classic: 11/27/2003] — The supreme court of Massachusetts has ordered the state’s legislature, within 180 days, to revise the law to accommodate same-sex “marriage.” Judicial arrogance is nothing new, but this takes the cake. The court isn’t even pretending that it’s merely “interpreting” the law; it’s demanding that elected officials legislate a perversion of the ancient and universal understanding of the most basic social institution in the world.

April 14, 2016

“SCOTUS”: An Acronym Likely To Go Down in Infamy by Robert Hale
April 7, 2016
MINOT, ND — The Supreme Court of the United States is often referred to as SCOTUS. SCOTUS seems determined to make itself the institution that single-handedly destroys what has been the greatest nation on earth.

If SCOTUS is to be saved, it must rise above the mindless arrogance it dishes out as American justice and critical legal thought. Read More
