The Moral Compass?
By Mr. David Zanotti

Harry Reid is once again making headlines while making little sense. His latest diatribe was directed at Members of Congress who want to defund Planned Parenthood. Reid accuses them of losing their moral compass.

So upon what source of morality does Reid anchor his defense of an organization that kills unborn children and sells their body parts for for a  revenue stream? Perhaps the Senator can cite a single reference from a single moral sourcebook or writing from antiquity to the present that would call this evil enterprise a noble cause.

The Presidential Merry Go Round
By Mr. David Zanotti

Remember the Merry Go Round (or Carousel) of your childhood? The bright colors and lights, the odd sounding but charming music? As a child we looked at the horses and bears and ostriches and all the other animals portrayed on that circular adventure. We picked out the one we hoped to ride and imagined our mighty steed would carry us to the finish line or perhaps whisk us away to an adventure for the day. After a few circles around, our first selections began to lose their luster. We started looking around at what other people were riding and wondering if they might be having a better adventure or more fun. If we got a second ride on the carousel, we seldom rode the same horse twice.

Welcome to Presidential primaries. This happens every now and then with an open seat for the White House. Right now there are about 20 different people on the merry go round from both political parties. People are trying to figure out which candidate is the one they want to ride with. As the adventure progresses over the next year there will be lots and lots of changes. The best experts in the field are seriously suggesting that the Democratic Nominee is not a foregone conclusion and that the Republican race may end in a deadlock thus creating a selection process that ends up at the Convention in Cleveland.

This ride has a long, long way to go.

The Conversation Begins
By Mr. David Zanotti

In the next few weeks on The Public Square we will begin a conversation on the content, meaning and impact of the US Supreme Court decision on Marriage. This conversation may well surprise you. We begin with a panel discussion that breaks the decision down and explains it so a family sitting around the dining room table can talk it through. Then we head to the pulpit of a church on July 4th weekend and look at the decision in historical context. And in the midst of it all -- you will hear some surprising and intriguing ideas on how we the people can respond and serve the cause of liberty in American culture. 

Here is a clue on what is up ahead. This is about much, much more than marriage. 
Please join us on The Public Square heard on over 200 radio stations coast to coast and 24/7 at thepublicsquare.com.

The World According to Kennedy
By Mr. David Zanotti

Since 2003 we have been warning America that Justice Anthony Kennedy was on a mission to reconstruct the legal definition of humankind in his own image. People scoffed, mocked and walked away, especially leaders in the "Pro-Family" movement. They refused to read Kennedy in the context of history. They refused to take him seriously. They refused to do the math on how to effectively expose and defeat this strategy. Instead they continued to raise money on "the marriage issue" and play out their concerns inside a single political party. 

Today all that denial and mis-aligned strategy have come home to roost. Justice Kennedy's work is complete. He has recast humankind in his own image. In the world according to Kennedy, mankind has reached a new Genesis. No longer are humans born male and female. They are born destined to choose their gender and their identity. No longer is human sexuality an inherited process of genetics and gender. It is a matter of choice. No longer is sexual behavior something you do -- sexual behavior, practice, proclivity are all matters of identity. Sex is what you are. Therefore no law can rightly discriminate against your identity, your personhood, which is comprised of your chosen gender and sexual behavior. 

If you take the time to read what Justice Kennedy has been writing since 2003, his worldview and doctrines are clear. The questions of access to the ceremony or legal title of a marriage license are only the wrapping paper. Inside the box of the Kennedy doctrine is the re-work of human identity and all the attending consequences in the practical realm of law. He may not even have all the dots connected in his own mind -- but no matter. He has four acolytes on the Court who have been waiting for him to deliver his final doctrine on the human condition. Now he has and they readily applauded it with their votes. 

The voices of dissent, all four opinions, are written from those aghast as to what they witnessed. The language is volatile and shocking for the US Supreme Court. Only Justice Scalia has the right to say "I told you so", because he has been warning us for years that the Kennedy Court would do exactly what they have done: recast man and woman in their own image. 

The Court has been wrong before. The question is -- are we the people willing to take on the task to correct this grave error or will we hit the remote and change the channel - or head to Church on Sunday and pretend nothing happened in America this week that matters? 

The high priests of the Kennedy Doctrine are convinced we will do both and they will proceed unchallenged to the next step on their agenda.

SCOTUSCare replaces Obamacare/ Marriage
By Mr. David Zanotti

UPDATE: The team at APR is reviewing all the opinions on the marriage decision. Yes, this is the "Roe" style decision we have been predicting since 2003. So in a way this comes as no surprise. The ferocious dissent of the four opposing Justices is quite surprising. Seldom in history have four Justices ever attacked the majority (of five) Justices at this level of intensity. We will be updating this site as well as The Public Square programming in the days and weeks ahead. For the moment -- take a thought to write down where you were on June 26th, 2015. This is truly a day that will live in infamy. 

________________________________

Thank you Justice Scalia. Without you America would be lacking an honest voice of sincerity and reason. Thank you for somehow managing to sit amidst a group of lawyers who became judges and in so doing have lost their way. Thank you for not quitting. It would be so easy to give up. One of your colleagues shows up at the State of the Union Address drunk and falls asleep. A few others are perpetual cheerleaders for the radical left and use their positions as message boards for the temporary. Your "Chief Justice" has become a colossal disappointment. Thank you for not quitting even though the Republican Congress lacks the intellect and courage to act in response to your profound advice. Thank you for writing your dissent on the Affordable Care Act today and for calling the majority opinion "absurd" and proving why it is so. 

Please sir, don't quit. Who else but you would have the courage to rename the Affordable Care Act, SCOTUSCare, the law the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court wrote.
