Staver Urges Government Not To Enforce Gay Marriage Rulings That Don't Go His Way
Recent court decisions in favor of marriage equality in Utah and Oklahoma have riled Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver to the point where he is suggesting that the government simply ignore and refuse to enforce decisions that allow same-sex couples to marry.
Staver, who is also the dean of the Liberty University Law School, said yesterday in an interview on Crosstalk that judges “lose their authority” if they rule in favor of marriage equality.
Later in the broadcast, Staver argued that judges “act as dictators” and must be stopped through a campaign similar to the one calling on A&E to lift its suspension of Phil Robertson, the Duck Dynasty star who was temporarily suspended after making racist and homophobic comments.
We’re not exactly sure how that is supposed to work, but to give you a clue, Liberty Counsel joined a campaign to mail rubber ducks to A&E’s offices.
It really I think, in the minds of the people, hurts the credibility of these courts. And I think when that happens, if the people say we can no longer trust these courts, we can no longer accord them the kind of responsibility and authority that they have, then guess what? They lose their authority. They have no enforcement power, it is only because the people and the government officials in the executive branch — federal and state — give them the authority. Other than that, they have no authority and that will ultimately I think weaken the judiciary.
I think that you may ultimately see a push back to the level of which, maybe even exceeding the level of which, we saw the push back of the people to A&E when they tried to censor Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty. When he began to talk about human sexuality, homosexuality and marriage from a biblical perspective, the Duck Dynasty star was then censored by A&E and people pushed back in a very vigorous way. And I think what we’re going to see is we will likely see that kind of push back even to a greater extent against these activist judges. They have no right to act as dictators to undermine not only the will of the people but something that is part of our constitutional history and even beyond that, part of our natural created order.
