Once again, the Supreme Court has acted in contempt of almighty God. Our nation was founded on the laws of nature and of nature’s God.

According to the Declaration of Independence, it was the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God,” that entitled our founding fathers to break from King George, to become a separate and equal sovereign nation.

The Lawrence vs. Texas decision flies in contempt of God’s law, which shows such utter abhorrence for the sin of homosexuality that it called for a penalty of death (see Leviticus 18:22, and 20:13).

What almighty God considers a capital crime, the U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t even consider a misdemeanor.

The justices have also acted way beyond their constitutional limits, in total disregard to the 10th Amendment, which reserves all powers not specifically given to the federal government to the states and the people.

The U.S. Supreme Court is limited to dealing with matters between states, or which traverse state lines. Lawrence vs. Texas did not involve either.

It is up to the states to determine the criminal laws to govern their state. The Supreme Court has both abused and perverted its authority.

Congress must take action to impeach those Supreme Court justices who disregard the laws of nature and of nature’s God, and their oath of office to uphold the Constitution.

A constitutional amendment is needed to acknowledge the right of states to enact their own laws governing sodomy and abortion, in further support of the 10th Amendment.
