Joe Miller on Civil Rights

 

 


Supreme Court voided the majority on same-sex marriage

Left-wing lawyers clothed in black robes have imposed their twisted view of law and morality on the country with breathtaking speed. Americans overwhelming rejected same-sex marriage at the ballot box. Incredibly, federal judges have arrogantly reversed the decisions of voters in most of those states. And now, in Obergefell v. Hodges, the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to void the few remaining pro-traditional marriage laws, nationwide.

Despite the federal judiciary's near full-body embrace of homosexual marriage, such sexual couplings are not equally accepted by ordinary Americans. The elites have a completely different view.

So what can be done? Obviously, there is no court above the U.S. Supreme Court from which discipline may be applied. The only answer for justices who blatantly violate their Code of Conduct, federal law, and their oaths of office is impeachment and removal.

Concerned over dissolution of traditional family

Question topic: Marriage is a union of one man and one woman. No government has the authority to alter this definition.

Miller: Strongly Agree.

Question topic: Briefly list political or legislative issues of most concern to you.

Miller: Dissolution of traditional family (majority of children born to mothers under 30 are born to single headed households. Culture cannot survive this).

Opposes ENDA; ok to decide whether a business serves gays

Q: The Employment Non-Discrimination Act that passed the Senate--would you have voted for it?

A: No. I would not have. No, I think that private employers should be able to make decisions as to what they do in their private businesses, and I think the people then are entitled to make decisions as to whether or not they use their services. They can boycott. If, for example, somebody that is a traditionalist, that believes in traditional marriage, that runs a bakery for weddings, should necessarily be compelled to do something that's against their conscience.

Q: Should a hotel be able to turn away a couple because they're gay?

A: I believe that if you're a private employer, you have the right to do what you want with respect to your business, and that the people of the country then have the right to do as they will, with respect to whether or not they boycott or take other action to financially penalize. I don't think the government has a role in that.

Let states decide about gay rights & minority rights

Q: Should a hotel be able to turn away a couple because they're gay?

A: I believe that if you're a private employer, you have the right to do what you want with respect to your business. And if somebody wants something like that, then they should be encouraged to move to a state that provides for that. At the federal level, the better thing is not to impose the one-size-solution-fits-all, but to reduce the involvement of the federal government, in favor of the people in the states.

Q: So at the federal level, then, should it be legal for that hotel to turn someone away because they're African-American?

A: I'm a state's right advocate in those areas.

Q: So should a restaurant then be able to turn someone away because they're African-American?

Q: I've said my piece on that.

Q: And so would you repeal the Civil Rights Act?

Q: Of course not. I've said my piece on the issue of ENDA. That was your specific question, that's my response to it.
