Homosexual Activists File Federal Lawsuit in Nevada to Oppose Marriage
Marriage is the preeminent and the most fundamental of all human social institutions.
The Trojan Horse of Domestic Partnership and Civil Union legislation is a cog in a cultural revolutionary strategy. The case in Nevada is the first time that Lambda Legal has used a federal court to attack a State Constitutional amendment which defended marriage as between a man and a woman. They asked the Court to declare it unconstitutional and enjoin anyone from disagreeing. To limit marriage to heterosexual couples is not discriminatory now, nor has it ever been. Homosexual couples cannot bring into existence what marriage intends by its very definition.

LAS VEGAS, NV (Catholic Online) - We are in the midst of a Cultural Revolution in the West. I know some of my readers, especially my detractors, will call such a claim alarmist and an overreach. However, the writing is on the wall and we all better read it and act.
The foundation of Western Civilization is marriage between one man and one woman and the family and society founded upon it. The truth about marriage is not simply a "religious" construct. The Natural Law reveals - and the cross cultural history of civilization affirms - that marriage is between one man and one woman, open to children and intended for life.
Marriage is the foundation for the family which is the privileged place for the formation of virtue and character in children, our future citizens. The family is the first society, first economy, first school, first civilizing and mediating institution and first government.
Marriage has been understood as arising out of the consent between one man and one woman and intended for life. It has been given a privileged and protected legal and social status, viewed as the primary civilizing institution constituted for the bearing and rearing of children. Within the family they can best be nurtured, loved, taught and prepared for citizenship and life in broader communities.
This understanding of marriage has long been understood in the West as revealed by the Natural Law. It was the basis of our organizing vision of society and informed our philosophy of governance. That included the place of subsidiarity, recognizing the family as the first government. Our educational system also recognized the family as the first school and parents as the first teachers.
We are experiencing a campaign to effectuate a radical change in our social order on all of these fronts. It is being done with verbal sophistication and utilizing a well funded legal strategy. Among the legal groups at the forefront of this Cultural Revolution is one called the "Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund".
On Tuesday, Aril 10, 2012, Lawyers for the Lambda legal Defense Fund filed a Federal Lawsuit in the United States District Court asking for Declaratory and Injunctive Relief. The case is numbered 2:12-cv-00578 and styled, Sevcik & Baranovich, et al. v. Sandoval, et al.
This case is part of a National strategy to use the Courts to compel us to call what can't be a marriage to be one or face the punitive force of the Police Power of the State. The effort relies upon using the 14th amendment to the US Constitution, the "Equal Protection Clause", as a tool for enforcing a cultural revolutionary strategy.
Referring to the eight homosexual partners who are the Plaintiffs the thirty page complaint argues, "They bring this action, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, seeking declaratory and injunctive relief for the violation of their rights under the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution caused by their being denied the right to marry in the State of Nevada (the "State").
"The State has instead relegated these couples to the inferior and novel status of registered domestic partnerships, and has disrespected the marriages some of them have entered in other jurisdictions, because they are lesbians and gay men in same-sex relationships."
The thirty page complaint continues, "Civil marriage plays a unique role in society as the universally recognized and celebrated hallmark of a couple's commitment to build family life together. Plaintiffs have formed committed, enduring family bonds equally worthy of the respect afforded by the State to different-sex couples through access to the status of marriage."
"Yet the State, without any adequate justification, has deprived lesbian and gay Nevadans of the right to marry, or to have their valid marriages from other jurisdictions recognized as marriages, based solely on their sexual orientation and sex. This discrimination (referred to herein as the State's "marriage ban") is enshrined both in Nevada statutes, and in article 1, section 21 of the Nevada Constitution, which limits marriage solely to couples composed of "a male and female."
The Trojan Horse of Domestic Partnership and Civil Union legislation is a cog in a cultural revolutionary strategy. This case in Nevada unmasks the goal of the Homosexual Equivalency Activists. This is the first time that Lambda Legal has used a federal court to attack a State Constitutional amendment which defended marriage as between a man and a woman. They have asked the Court to declare it unconstitutional and enjoin anyone from disagreeing.
The leaders of the homosexual equivalency movement insist that homosexual sexual practices are morally equivalent to the sexual expression of marital love between a man and a woman. However, they go further, by insisting that every State make ...
