California’s Supreme Court (which has six of seven judges appointed by Republican governors) decided the state’s law against gay marriage was unconstitutional. The state will now begin marrying gays and lesbians in 30 days.

Sen. Jim DeMint apparently had time to burn today and thought he’d give his useless 2 cents.

“Marriage is America’s most important institution and it must be cherished and protected. This decision by the California State Supreme Court to overturn the ban on same-sex marriage is the latest in a series of attacks on the sanctity of marriage in this country. We cannot allow activist judges to force their liberal views on American families that overwhelmingly support marriage between one man and one woman.”

Again, those “activist judges” are Republican appointed activist judges.

But DeMint doesn’t stop there. He had to take another offensive stab at gay and lesbian families.

“Families are the strength of America, and that’s why we must protect marriage because we know children that are raised by a mother and father have the best chance to succeed in life.”
