False Gods

Cal Thomas, like many Consrvatoids, is upset that a judge struck down Proposition 8, and argues so in his latest article.
The decision by a single, openly gay federal judge to strike down the will of 7 million Californians, tradition dating back millennia (not to mention biblical commands, which the judge decided, in his capacity as a false god, to also invalidate) is judicial vigilantism equal to Roe vs. Wade.
I strongly believe that it is not the capacity of any Judge to set themself up as a God, false or otherwise. Judges are there to interpret the law not to reign in heaven!

That said, I also don't think Judges should be rulling based on what they think God wants, but should interpret the law. Prop 8 violated the California Constitution, according to Judge Walker, so he overturned it. Cal Thomas obviously disagrees with me as his article is largely about how a vengeful God is probably upset at us for failing to serve God sufficiently.
