Gary Bauer Is Worried About SCOTUS

"The Supreme Court is split with four reliable liberals, four generally conservative justices and one moderate, swing vote — Justice Anthony Kennedy. While Justice Kennedy sided with conservatives in the Obamacare decision, he has a long history of siding with the court’s liberals when it comes to abortion and homosexual rights.

"For example, Justice Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in Romer v. Evans, which struck down a popularly-enacted ballot initiative in Colorado preventing special legal protection based solely on homosexual behavior. Justice Kennedy also wrote the majority opinion in Lawrence v. Texas, which struck down state laws against sodomy. Kennedy’s reasoning in both cases was so sweeping, it seems highly unlikely that he could uphold marriage as the union of one man and one woman." - Former Family Research Council president and 2000 presidential candidate Gary Bauer.
