The camel's nose...

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Feb 05, 2004

Food for thought:

The Massachusetts constitution expressly states that the courts should not be involved in marriage issues.

So how does a court now have the right to define marriage?

It turns out, we let the courts into the game years ago, when the legislature gave them power to handle issues involving divorce.

So if you're looking for the very first decline that signals the slippery slope, that might have been it.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
