Ladies and gentlemen.
Governor Mike -- And welcome.
These extreme court has done it again.
This week they decided that the voters of California.
Nor god almighty himself or is wise as they were.
Now while I understand the technical legal nature of the decision.
The effect was to ignore a substantial majority of voters in California.
Twice affirmed the biblical historical and natural law definition of marriage of one man one woman.
Now even if you think people of the same gender should marry.
I'd like to think that you might feel that such a major cultural shift.
Ought to be in the hands of the people who are supposed to -- ultimate authority under our government.
Even in the decision on the defensive marriage or drama.
The legislation was passed overwhelmingly.
By both houses of congress and a bipartisan vote and it was signed by a Democrat President Bill Clinton.
-- no matter.
That some people who voted for -- say they have evolved.
And that they are now against it.
But if that's so then put it back before the world's greatest deliberative body and the people's house.
-- -- -- flies.
Same sex marriage is newer than Google and the iPod.
And the first nation to even codify -- in the law didn't do so until the year 2000.
Now I'm told that I need to get on the right side of history and support the marriage of two people the same gender.
Well I respectfully believe that I am on the right side of history because the history is pretty long on marriage between a man and a woman.
Not so much for other versions.
Despite the frothing at the advocates to the add to the contrary.
I'm neither a homophobic.
Nor a hater.
I'm simple enough to believe that a marriage of one man and one woman not only is the only biological combination.
Capable of creating the next generation.
But in the context of a monogamous in committed relationship.
It's the best context for children to learn how to replace their parents.
Now if we're determined to change the definition of marriage to accommodate how people feel and what they wish to do because of their mutual consent.
-- we should immediately release those incarcerated for practicing polygamy or bigamy and frankly.
Let's -- all consensual adult behaviors legal.
Or even drinking sixteen ounce sodas in New York City.
-- As much as I'd love to be loved and admired by all I can't -- the definition of marriage any more than I can defy the law of gravity.
God created both and at the point I decided to follow him in my Christian commitment.
My life nor its rules belong to me anymore.
As for the argument that it's a matter of equality let me gently pointed out that the issue is not -- quality that sameness.
-- equality means intrinsic worth and value and would guarantee one's right to voter rent -- buy a house go to school receive medical care.
But equality of worth doesn't create -- -- there are differences between men and women.
And votes of congress nor the extreme court can change that.
After 39 years of marriage.
I won't pretend that I understand women.
But I do know there's a difference.
Court said an 1857.
That black people weren't fully human and the court was wrong they said in 1962 that we couldn't pray in school and the court was wrong.
In 1973 they -- unborn children were disposable and expendable and 56 million dead children later they were wrong.
And this week for those of us who believe that god created male and female.
And who believe that Jesus said that a man shall leave his father and mother and a woman shall leave her home and the -- will become one flesh.
Well to us the court was wrong yet again.
