This decision is clearly outside of, and hence in violation of, the delineated, limited authority granted by the Constitution of the Supreme Court. These justices have violated their oath of office and provided the grounds for their impeachment.
We urge our fellow, God-fearing Americans to demand of their congressmen that they impeach these six members of the Supreme Court.
To Congress, we ask these questions:
* Most of you claim to support "family values": Do you have the courage to defend the family?
* Most of you claim to be ? Christians: Do you have the courage to defend God's Law and Christian morality?
All of you claim to be free men and women: Do you have the courage to peacefully dethrone the tyrants who are plunging us into perdition, or will you grovel before the Supreme Court like the ministers of the crown used to grovel before their King?
Are you men or cowards:
If you do that which is right, Americans will love and respect you, and history will honor you. If you do nothing, a deeper disgust and cynicism will creep into the American public, and your cowardly inaction may help inch us closer to that black chasm into which no sane man desires to look, and few dare.
If you choose the path of cowardice, the path of inactivity, history will raise its head and mock you for your impotence and folly. Future generations will hold you us as miserable examples, tepid slaves who sold themselves and their countrymen into bondage for a bowl of politically correct pottage.
Are there God-fearing lovers of liberty and justice in the House and Senate:
If so, impeach these tyrants
LOYAL, to GOD, HIS LAW, & the CONSTITUTION

[COMMENT: The Supreme Court is an unelected body, appointed for life, which means they are essentially "unget-at-able" by the public whom they govern. Only Congress has the capacity to discipline the justices. The House of Representatives can impeach a justice, and the Senate holds the trial.
Certain of the justices have clearly violated their oath of office to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States by, in effect, rewriting it. They have accomplished damage to the American Republic that tyrants over more than two centuries could not accomplish, including two world wars.
Rewriting the Constitution on the grounds that it is a "growing" document is treason on the bench of the Supreme Court just as clearly as treason on the battlefield. When the justices are sitting, they are on the battlefield of justice. Rewriting the Constitution is done by the people through amendments, not by any decision of the Supreme Court.
In the early years of our Republic, Congress was much more willing to stand firm on a clear separation of powers, and unwilling to let the Supreme Court usurp the power of legislation by so-called "judicial review". When the balance of power gets out of balance, and when one branch of government begins to override another, we are on the road to tyranny. The call to impeachment is right and proper. The question is: are we electing people to Congress who have either the intelligence or the backbone to do so.
I have written a book, Reason, Revelation, and Politics, which investigates these issues much more deeply, available in print from Emmaus Ministries or on the ROAD to EMMAUS==>> bulletin board. And I will be proposing two amendments to the Constitution which will be posted to this website shortly.
