Uphold State Laws above Federal Judicial Courts' Decisions on same-sex marriage
- Kentucky State Congress.
- United States of America
The Court System in this country was designed to enforce the laws not create them. That is what the legislative branch of our Government is for. Kentucky voters voiced their opinion when they cast their ballot to ban same sex marriage in this State. Where is the legislature for the Federal override of our State law?
Below is survey information on the percentages of Kentucky voters on this issue. Our voting rights might as well vanish if you are not going to step up and protect our votes and voices in this State to which the politicians were elected to uphold.

Please sign this Petition in hopes that our elected officials will take action on the override of our State law enacted by the Supreme Court.
Without Federal legislature the Judicial system had no legal right to circumvent and enforce a declaration that supersedes our State governing legislature. Your stance is not as much the issue as the fact that a judiciary branch was never designed to create laws they were created to enforce them.
If this is to be made Federal law that overrides individual States we need to see it go before the United States Congress which it has not.
