Imagine going to a used car salesman looking for a car. His eyes light up and he takes you to a certain one. “This is it,” he proclaims. “This is the perfect car for you.” “Is it a good car,” you ask. He assures you it’s in great shape. Two weeks later you are stranded on the side of the highway. Your mechanic tells you the transmission is junk and has been for quite a while. You go back to the salesman, irate and demanding your money back. He calms you down, then says, “I’m very sorry about last time. But I have the perfect car for you. Nothing could be better.”

If you want to see what a judicial roller coaster looks like, all you’d have to do is look at the Supreme Court of the United States. Decisions have been made and then reversed, made with good outcomes for the defense of morality, and made with disastrous repercussions on biblical principles. This week marked another one of those twists and turns, but it’s impossible not to feel that the Supreme’s Courts two decisions on the Defense of Marriage Act and on Proposition 8 will eventually impact our country in ways as profound as Brown vs. the Board of Education or Roe vs. Wade.
