Four Marriage Amendments Head to Federal Appeals Court

Citizen Link - Mon, 08/04/2014 - 15:44

Attorneys arguing on behalf of marriage amendments in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Michigan will be at the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday.

Lawsuits have challenged each of the state marriage amendments, even though they were passed by a majority of voters.

In Kentucky, nearly 75 percent voted in favor of God’s timeless design for marriage in 2004. Even so, Kent Ostrander, executive director of the Family Foundation of Kentucky, said that didn’t stop activists.

“It was an overwhelming victory,” he said, “the people had spoken and now, unfortunately, individual judges, and even panels of judges, have just decided the people’s will doesn’t matter.”

A recent poll shows 50 percent of Kentuckians stand by one-man, one-woman marriage. Thirty-six percent favor redefinition.

“There’s still a huge split between them. That would be a landslide if that was an election,” he said. “As we all see, the culture is sliding toward a redefinition of marriage and that’s not surprising when you consider that academia, the media, Hollywood and all the entertainment industry is pushing that.”

Historically a moderate court, the 6th Circuit is made up of two Republican appointees and one Democrat. Still, Ostrander said that doesn’t guarantee a good outcome.

“When you look back at their previous rulings,” he said, “one judge appears to be quite conservative, one judge appears to be quite liberal and one judge is sitting on the fence.”

CitizenLink’s associated family policy councils in all four states have joined forces, calling for prayer while they wait for the decision to come down.

“This is a time for prayer, not rallies,” said Phil Burress, head of Citizens for Community Values told The Columbus Dispatch. “We’re praying for judges to do the right thing.”

Wisconsin Scales Back on Union Bargaining, Saves Taxpayer Dollars

Citizen Link - Mon, 08/04/2014 - 15:36

The Wisconsin Supreme Court upheld Act 10, a state law that limits the bargaining power of teachers unions and saves about $3 billion in taxes.

Wisconsin has been in a long struggle to free itself from the expensive demands of government employee unions.

Justice Michael Gableman wrote the 5-2 majority opinion that took a swipe at the argument that collective bargaining is a constitutional right.

“No matter the limitations or ‘burdens’ a legislative enactment places on the collective bargaining process, collective bargaining remains a creation of legislative grace and not constitutional obligation. The First Amendment cannot be used as a vehicle to expand the parameters of a benefit that it does not itself protect,” he wrote.

Teachers unions will no longer be able to include hours, working conditions and grievance procedures in collective bargaining agreements. Base wage increases are also limited by the law.

Gov. Scott Walker supported the legislation and issued a statement after the ruling.

Act 10 has saved Wisconsin taxpayers more than $3 billion,” he wrote. “Today’s ruling is a victory for those hard-working taxpayers.”
