Today, the Supreme Court of the United States made another historically disastrous decision, decreeing that states can no longer make decisions for themselves, and instead are entirely subservient to the federal government on the issue of marriage. Amendment X of the Constitution that the Supreme Court is supposedly upholding reads, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." As many people seem to have forgotten, nowhere is marriage mentioned in the Constitution. It is not a right delegated to the federal government by the Constitution and therefore should be decided by the States.
Today, the Supreme Court issued a decision that stood in direct contradiction to this amendment, one that has been in place for over two hundred years. The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute strongly advocates for traditional marriage.

The activist judges sitting in the majority on the highest court in the land say yes. Yes, we should throw the Constitution out the window.
