What Judges Do and Must Do Is ... Move the Strike Zone
Prop. 8 Judge: 'What Judges Do and Must Do Is ... Move the Strike Zone' | CNSNews.com
Should Judges Apply the laws as written, or be allowed to move the "strike zone"?
Seems this Judge ruled in his own favor. Should his decisions be reviewed and over turned?
Note I don't care about gay marriage, I am in this case simply interested in whether we should allow judicial activism, and what should be done if we don't believe in judicial activism.

The Supreme Court has the authority to "move the strike zone" as they see fit. That's why it is so important to elect a conservative president that will appoint a conservative judges. Maintain our rights are they were originally written.

Tough call. I am very much in favor of "the letter of the Law," but there is so much now that the framers of the Constitution couldn't possibly have seen happening (gay marriages, national health care, abortion, etc.). A lot of it (excuse me for saying this) the government has no business in. I guess if the Constitution is silent on a particular issue, then it should be a non-issue. Am I opposed to gay marriages? Yes, but I am also opposed to an intrusive government. A bit of a predicament. I am not opposed to people living together. There's no law against having a roommate. I don't see the need to expand things.
My opinion on the topic is, the Strike Zone should not be moved, nor should it be expanded.
