A Falsification of Evolution Becomes a Legal Premiseruled that laws in Indiana and Wisconsin, defining marriage to be between a man and a woman, are unconstitutional.
While it is no secret that evolutionary premises now inform opinions across the political spectrum, this decision (written by a Reagan appointee) made those premises explicit as it cites evolutionary research and is based on the assumption that evolution is true. Its point is that homosexuality is a result of evolution so therefore gay marriage should be a legal right.
Should we point out that evolution is scientifically flawed? Or should we point out that homosexuality, the usual mental gymnastics of evolutionists notwithstanding, makes no sense under evolution? Remember that part about reproductive success?
It is all reminiscent of Judge John Jones—exalted as one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of the Year—hilariously revealing that he actually wanted to see Inherit the Wind a second time in preparation for the 2005 Dover case, over which he presided, because, after all, the film puts the origins debate into its proper “historical context.”
Proper historical context? You’ve got to be kidding.
What a classic mistrial. Jones had been so indoctrinated by the Warfare Thesis that he actually believed the evolutionary propaganda to be historically accurate. If the perfect crime is the one that is never discovered, the perfect propaganda is the one that is never understood. Jones later reminisced about the trial, unbelievably explaining that “I understood the general theme. I’d seen Inherit the Wind.” Jones was not educated, he was brainwashed.
And unfortunately Jones is not simply a lone nut. Legal expert Andrew Cohen not only gave high praise to Inherit the Wind, but absurdly called it “one of the great trial movies of all time.” The movie is a fictional construct, based on the fictional Warfare Thesis erected by evolutionists, and long since discredited by historians. Are they showing it in law schools these days?
So the Seventh Circuit’s explicit premise of evolution is not surprising. It is simply a confirmation that dangerous ignorance pervades the highest levels of power.
