By Moody Adams Homosexuals took a terrible beating in this election; continue a long string of great victories for traditional marriage. A majority of states have now ratified an amendment making marriage to be between a man and woman only.

In 2000 Californian’s adopted Proposition 22 which forbids homosexuals from marrying. The Californian court quickly ruled this unconstitutional, discarding the will of the people.
Now 5 months after they were ruled legal in California, thousands of same-sex marriages are thrown out. This includes Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi and Star Trek actor George Takei, who wed Brad Altman, his partner of 21 years.
In Florida, the Yes2Marriage.org’s traditional marriage organization won 62.1 percent of the vote, to 37.9 percent opposed.
In 2005, the ACLU filed suit seeking to block an amendment and Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel and dean of Liberty University School of law, argue at the Florida Supreme Court, which ruled 7-0 in favor of the amendment.
"There's a big difference between a law (also known as a statute) and a constitutional amendment. A law or statute can be easily changed by politicians or activist judges; a constitutional amendment cannot," said a statement by YesForMarriage.org. "Three courts – Massachusetts, California, and Connecticut – have overturned state marriage laws! This shows that marriage can be redefined by judges unless the people define marriage in the state constitution."
The family was the first of God's institutions, coming before government. At least, we are still winning there.
