Iowa Voters Toss Out Three Supreme Court Justices Who Imposed ‘Gay Marriage’

Three elitist Iowa Supreme Court Justices down, four to go.

When the ACLU is whining about how “extremists” are taking over America, it is generally a sign that something good has happened in this nation. “We the People’s” repudiation of President Barack Obama’s and the Democrats’ left-wing agenda extended to a rejection of “homosexual marriage” and other extreme policies. Iowa voters tossed out three state Supreme Court justices who were part of the 7-0 decision to impose counterfeit “same-sex marriage” on the state in 2009. Good for them!

This is only the most important of many defeats for the Homosexual Lobby and its elitist liberal defenders on Election Day. We will try to alert you to some other significant pro-family victories on what was truly a pivotal day for the United States of America. — Peter LaBarbera,

Voters tell 3 Supreme Court justices: You’re fired!
Ouster follows imposition of same-sex ‘marriage’ on Iowans

Iowa voters have expressed their opposition to court-mandated same-sex “marriage” in their state by firing three of the state Supreme Court justices who created the new “right.”

Now those who campaigned for voters to reject Marsha Ternus, David Baker and Michael Streit say they are hoping that the message will reverberate across the country and other judges will begin reining in their activism.

“The people have spoken. Time for the elitist judges to understand there is a constitution and that government is owned by the people,” wrote Dennis S. in a forum at the website.

Pastor Cary Gordon of Cornerstorne World Outreach in Sioux City, [Iowa] was one of the pastors who coordinated a letter to churches asking them to speak out against homosexual “marriage.”

He told WND that the letter reminded pastors of their moral obligation to cry out against evil and address arrogance and injustice in the courts.

Hundreds of pastors responded, he said.

“There were Catholics, Methodists, Wesleyans, Baptists; the list just goes on and on. It was humbling to see all those who wanted to do [their] duty,” he said.

The message from voters that resulted, the dismissal of the three justices up for retention votes, was “colossal,” he said.

“The message is very clear,” he said. “The left just doesn’t understand their error. The worst talking point they have had throughout this is ‘voting no is an abuse of the system.'”

But that’s dishonest, he asserted, because the retention vote is part of the system.

“Citizens don’t have to give a reason why they vote one way or another” he said. “The problem with the judges, we have remedied this morning.”

He said the judges who change the law, and in the case in Iowa step into the role of the executive branch of government by issuing orders to counties regarding marriage licenses, are “truly elistist,” he said.

He said he understands why progressive billionaire George Soros is traveling around giving millions of dollars to campaigns to remove voters from the process of picking and keeping judges.

“Euthanasia, the violation of property rights, the most egregious and barbaric ideas have come not from ‘we the people,’ but from elitist judges,” he said.

Judge Roy Moore, the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court who runs the Foundation for Moral Law, told WND that the Iowa justices rejected the will of the people and the law they adopted.

Their removal, he said, “is a tremendously overwhelming message to the rest of the nation, that judges can be held accountable,” he said.

“This sends a message. Maybe judges won’t be as complacent and as radically activist if they realize people will rise up,” he said….
