Constitutional Court replaces God

South African government spokesperson Themba Maseko reminded everyone "that the definition of marriage in the Marriage Act was unconstitutional." Maseko added to that that "parties should not express themselves in a way that suggested they wanted to defy the decision of the Constitutional Court."

The fact is, whenever the Constitutional Court (ConCourt) makes decisions that support immorality, the people have a right to defy that court. The ConCourt is not the binding principle for our consciences! For a Christian, like myself, the Bible binds my conscience and no law or constitutional statement that any court makes in South Africa that flies in the face of what the Bible so clearly states, will overrule my conscience.

Can a person's conscience get him into trouble with the law? Sure! It happened continuously during the apartheid years!

The question I would like to ask is "Who died and made the ConCourt king?"

According to my understanding, the ConCourt can merely make rulings based on what the Constitution already states. The fact is, the Constitutional Court does not make the Constitution! That would be the job of parliament.

It is for this reason, in the case of ConCourt's pro-same-sex-marriage pronouncement, that parliament must act with moral greatness and amend the Constitution to reflect marriage as between one man and one woman. This, in effect will leave ConCourt with no option to degrade marriage to what it has never been, which God has pronounced to be between one man and one woman for life!
