Constitution Party Reaffirms Platform Plank On Family In Light Of SCOTUS Ruling On DOMA

The following was posted on the Constitution Party’s Facebook page yesterday:

CONSTITUTION PARTY PLATFORM: FAMILY
No civil government may legitimately authorize or define marriage or family relations, as affirmed by the 10th amendment, delegating to the people as our founders understood the family as necessary to the general welfare.

We affirm the importance of Biblical scripture in the founders’ intent as eloquently stated by Noah Webster: “The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitution and laws… All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts in the Bible.”

The law of our Creator defines marriage as the union between one man and one woman. The marriage covenant is the foundation of the family, and the family is fundamental in the maintenance of a stable, healthy and prosperous social order. No government may legitimately authorize or define marriage or family relations contrary to what God has instituted. We are opposed to any judicial ruling or amending the U.S. Constitution or any state constitution re-defining marriage with any definition other than the Biblical standard.

We call for an end to all taxation and economic formulas that discourage marriage, incentivize co-habitation and child bearing outside of marriage or authorize or provide government funding for policies and programs that further erode the jurisdiction of the family or parental rights.

We reject the notion that homosexuals, transgenders or those who are sexually deviant are deserving of legal favor or special protection, and affirm the rights of states and localities to proscribe offensive sexual behavior. We oppose all efforts to impose a new sexual legal order through any courts or legislatures. We stand against so-called “sexual orientation” and “hate crime” statutes that attempt to legitimize inappropriate sexual behavior or stifle public opposition to its expression. We oppose government funding of “partner” benefits for unmarried individuals. Finally, we oppose any legal recognition of homosexual or civil unions.

We recognize that parents have the fundamental right and responsibility to nurture, educate, and discipline their children. We oppose the assumption of any of these responsibilities by any governmental agency without the express delegation of the parents or legal due process. We affirm the value of the father and the mother in the home, and we oppose efforts to legalize adoption of children by homosexual singles or couples.

    “We affirm the importance of Biblical scripture in the founders’ intent as eloquently stated by Noah Webster: “The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitution and laws.”

    Noah Webster, Jr. (b. October 16, 1758) was not even 18 when the founders met in Philadelphia and signed the Declaration of Independence.
    He was not present even as a spectator at Independence Hall of that historic date.

    Nor was he present as a delegate on Sept 17, 1787
    when the Constitution was initially ratified. Neither was he present when the “Bill of Rights”
    (Amendments 1 through 10) were ratified on Dec.
    15, 1791.

    Where does some petty lexicographer find the authority to define for those brave men who risked life, liberty and property for sake of their fellow men, what moral principles and precepts
    “OUGHT to form the basis of all our civil constitution and laws”

    This is arrogant, beyond belief.

    > “No civil government may legitimately authorize or define marriage or family relations, as affirmed by the 10th amendment, delegating to the people as our founders understood the family as necessary to the general welfare.”<

    ABSOLUTE GIBBERISH! There is absolutely NO reference to marriage or family in either the Constitution OR the Bill of Rights and the TENTH Amendment expressly states that the powers not delegated to the Federal Government are exclusive reserved to the State or the people.

    In short, the Several States, AND the people CAN define marriage ANY GOD DAMN WAY THEY
    PLEASE!!!

    Comprende?

    Dear Constitution Party,
    I am glad you like a book, but please reread it and let me know if you literally want us to beat our slaves according to scripture, stone our women who have premarital or extramarital sex, and please, let me know about the Sabbath, I think we aren’t supposed to pull our ass out of a ditch on Sunday, but what if it really is Saturday…should I leave my ass in the ditch all weekend, just to be safe? PS, I’ve rendered a bit too much to Caesar…can you let GOD know he can collect my tithe from the gov’t for me? Thanks a bunch, and if you are done with the cross, please get down, someone needs the wood.

    Jason

    Bible trumps Constitution in the Constitution party…go figure. Maybe they should call themselves the bible party?

    It drives me nuts that they take a few comments from the Old Testament and use them to vilify millions of people. And you’re right, Daddyfatsax, to point out those Scruiptures that they choose to ignore. I wonder how many of them will offer up their daughters to travelers?

    And if we’re going with the Lot story, how many of them will get drunk and impregnate their daughters? And do they follow Abraham’s lead and make people swear oaths while cupping the other man’s testicles?

    It would certainly simplify all the ballot access problems if they did 🙂

    And if we’re going with the Lot story, how many of them will get drunk and impregnate their daughters?

    About half.

    And do they follow Abraham’s lead and make people swear oaths while cupping the other man’s testicles?

    Grundmann and Riley Hood very well might.
