On his “WallBuilders Live” radio broadcast today, David Barton revealed that he will be heading to Congress to lead a training session for lawmakers on how to prevent the court system from ruling in favor of marriage equality.
Responding to a question from a listener on what steps Congress can take to rein in the judiciary on this issue, Barton declared that Congress has several options: it can pass a law declaring that federal courts cannot hear gay marriage cases, it can pass a law that says that no federal money can ever be used to enforce a ruling from the Supreme Court in favor of gay marriage, or it can simply abolish any court, outside of the Supreme Court, that issues any ruling for gay marriage.
“All Congress has to do,” he said, “is pass a law saying, ‘you know, we saw the Northern District of Georgia struck down the marriage law; we’re abolishing the Northern District of Georgia court. It doesn’t exist any more.'”
The reason that Congress hasn’t already taken such steps, Barton explained, is because members of Congress are products of “our government education system” and therefore never learned this … which is why he is being brought to Washington, D.C., to teach it to them.
“I was at a conference recently where I was speaking on judicial myths,” he said, “and I just quoted from the Founding Fathers and the Constitution and quoted from the Founders’ own writings and congressmen said ‘we never heard that’ and so they’ve asked me to come to D.C. and do a training for them on ways to limit judicial activism”:
