All these same folks who have sought and received (from the media) the title of “Christian Leaders” have been saying for years that “these things must and will happen” before Jesus returns, and then are “disturbed, stunned and disappointed” when they do. Really?
Conservative Christian leaders have expressed disappointment and concern over the United States Supreme Court’s decisions on the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8. Many conservative Christians have denounced the Wednesday morning decisions regarding the standing of the California constitutional amendment and the federal definition of marriage.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said in a statement that the five-judge majority’s decision regarding the DOMA case was “absurd.” Perkins also took issue with the Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss the Proposition 8 appeal over lack of standing.
“We are disturbed that the court refused to acknowledge that the proponents of Proposition 8 have standing to defend Proposition 8. This distorts the balance of powers between the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government,” said Perkins. “Ironically, by refusing to defend the law, California’s executive branch has also denied the nation any definitive ruling on the constitutionality of defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.”
