Facebook is making my head hurt. Folks are upset over the marriage equality ruling; some for religious reasons, but others are stating things like "Since when do random judges in black robes get to decide what's good for America?! This is not the America our ancestors fought for!"
Oh really? That's not what our forefathers wanted? Then why did they write about checks and balances in the constitution to assure that not one branch of government could have more power than the other? Why did they put in the Constitution that the judicial branch could interpret the laws when said laws were unconstitutional?
"Judicial power—the power to decide cases and controversies—is vested in the Supreme Court and inferior courts established by Congress. The judges must be appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, hold office during good behavior and receive compensations that may not be diminished during their continuance in office. If a court's judges do not have such attributes, the court may not exercise the judicial power of the United States. Courts exercising the judicial power are called "constitutional courts."
I'm not going to get into the Biblical reasons, because those who cherry pick verses in Leviticus to prove a point did not read the rest of the Bible, nor do they seem to truly understand the being they worship or what he died for.
Another issue giving me a headache is the Confederate flag - I stopped caring though after someone was arguing that it was there Heritage, because their family "succeeded" from the Union. Ummm... No you didn't "succeed", nor did you SECEDE. After that I was done with trying to bring logic to a fight against banning the Battle flag, when an actual ban does not exist in the first place.
I'm just over it. I've unfollowed and unfriended so many people already, but luckily that's made my page a bit more inviting. I'm not on Facebook to be stressed or angry, so I'm eliminating that aspect for the most part. Can you blame me?
