What Would Reagan Do?

What would Ronald Reagan have done if the California Supreme Court had done during his administration what they did recently: “created” a right to gay marriage in defiance of the legislative and executive branches?

The Supremacists must be stopped.  We the People of the United States will not allow The Men in Black to be unelected tyrants who legislate from the bench.

Mike Huckabee makes this point well, but of course Allahpundit attacks him once again.

Allahpundit can keep being a Hillary Clinton Republican.

I am a Reagan Republican.

What would Reagan do?

One recent survey by a Washington-based research council concluded that Americans were far more religious than the people of other nations; 95 percent of those surveyed expressed a belief in God and a huge majority believed the Ten Commandments had real meaning in their lives. And another study has found that an overwhelming majority of Americans disapprove of adultery, teenage sex, pornography, abortion, and hard drugs. And this same study showed a deep reverence for the importance of family ties and religious belief.

I think the items that we’ve discussed here today must be a key part of the nation’s political agenda. For the first time the Congress is openly and seriously debating and dealing with the prayer and abortion issues and that’s enormous progress right there. I repeat: America is in the midst of a spiritual awakening and a moral renewal. And with your biblical keynote, I say today, “Yes, let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.”

Now, obviously, much of this new political and social consensus I’ve talked about is based on a positive view of American history, one that takes pride in our country’s accomplishments and record. But we must never forget that no government schemes are going to perfect man. We know that living in this world means dealing with what philosophers would call the phenomenology of evil or, as theologians would put it, the doctrine of sin.

There is sin and evil in the world, and we’re enjoined by Scripture and the Lord Jesus to oppose it with all our might.Our nation, too, has a legacy of evil with which it must deal. The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past. For example, the long struggle of minority citizens for equal rights, once a source of disunity and civil war is now a point of pride for all Americans. We must never go back. There is no room for racism, anti-Semitism, or other forms of ethnic and racial hatred in this country.

I know that you’ve been horrified, as have I, by the resurgence of some hate groups preaching bigotry and prejudice. Use the mighty voice of your pulpits and the powerful standing of your churches to denounce and isolate these hate groups in our midst. The commandment given us is clear and simple: “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

I believe Reagan would have loved everyone, but fought against Judicial Tyranny that created gay marriage.

  1. I agree that judicial activism must be stopped. You and I have different opinions about a lot of social issues, but here we are similar. It is dangerous and counter-productive to allow the courts to legislate from the bench, as it robs us voters of the ability to have our voices heard.

    And I meant what I said about you. We’ll never convince each other that one of us is right (and the other wrong). Yet I will always respect your opinions and how you conduct yourself with flair. At least we have a common love and respect for Reagan, that makes me think quite highly of you. : ) You’re welcome anytime at my blog – just be warned, it’s not entirely political.

  2. Anna,

    Thank you very much for your comment and for your words of support over at HotAir.

    Thank you for standing up for free speech and respectful discussion, both when we agree and when we disagree. I think quite highly of you, too! :-)

    Sincerely,
    Red Pill

    wow … I already feel like I have been run over by the whole gay “marriage” issue as I live in Massachsuetts.
