Congress has an important role in restraining judicial supremacy. The Constitution gives Congress the power to remove issues from the jurisdiction of the courts. Congress has exercised this power frequently since the Constitution was adopted. Bill Clinton, among others, recognized this power when he signed legislation to block some lawsuits against gun manufacturers. Congress can also refuse to pay for enforcement of decisions it doesn’t like. When a court ordered a Cross removed from public lands, Congress banned the use of federal money to carry out the order. President Clinton approved that action, too.
It is time for Congress to use its powers to protect marriage. Congress should remove federal jurisdiction over marriage. Orders to recognize same-sex marriage that are contrary to state law should not be funded. Presidential candidates should be encouraged to use executive power to push back against judicial supremacy on marriage. I urge you to set up a local group to meet regularly and study my book on the courts called The Supremacists.
