SCOTUS kicking against the goads

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. – Genesis 2:24-25

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. – Leviticus 18:22

If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them. – Leviticus 20:13

Righteousness exalts a nation,
but sin is a reproach to any people. – Proverbs 14:34

“I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.  I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.  They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.   Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” – John 17:14-17

“For certainly no legislation can be supposed more wholesome and necessary in the founding of a free, self-governing commonwealth, fit to take rank as one of the co-ordinate States of the Union, than that which seeks to establish it on the basis of the idea of the family, as consisting in and springing from the union for life of one man and one woman in the holy estate of matrimony; the sure foundation of all that is stable and noble in our civilization; the best guaranty of that reverent morality which is the source of all beneficent progress in social and political improvement.” – Murphy v. Ramsey, 114 US 15 – Supreme Court 1885

“But this Court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us. Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be. The people who ratified the Constitution authorized courts to exercise “neither force nor will but merely judgment.” The Federalist No. 78, p. 465 (C. Rossiter ed. 1961) (A. Hamilton) (capitalization altered).” – Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U.S. ___ (2015), Roberts, C. J. dissenting.

‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’   And I said, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting.’ – Acts 26:14-15

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. – Galatians 6:7
