The Life and Liberty Minute
The Life and Liberty Minute features Bryan Fischer, the host of “Focal Point” on American Family Radio. It’s a laser-like 60 second focus on an issue of the day, using the Word of God and the Constitution to analyze and explain.
Time To Recognize The Limits Of The Supreme Court’s Authority
Bryan Fischer with today’s Life and Liberty Minute. Regressives have used the Supreme Court to get what they want through judicial fiat rather than through the legislative process. Whether it’s homosexuality, sodomy-based marriage, or baby murder, every major advance of their political agenda has come from an activist Court. But the Constitution nowhere gives the Court that kind of authority. Their authority is limited, according to the Constitution, to deciding “cases and controversies” that come before them. Their rulings are binding only on the parties that are before them in court, but are not binding on anyone else. So the Obergefell plaintiffs get to have their gay marriages, but nobody else is entitled to one. Let’s limit the Court to the authority the Founders gave it, not the authority the justices have seized for themselves.
