Justice Kennedy compares his own ruling to laws creating by Nazi Germany


In a recent town hall meeting where citizens had the opportunity to pose questions to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, he basically compared his ruling on redefining marriage to the laws created by Nazi Germany. 

Kennedy, the swing vote in the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in June to redefine marriage was asked about Kentucky county Clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed for nearly a week by U.S. District Judge David Bunning after the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling when she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couple in violation of her faith. 

Ted Cruz posted the video of Justice Kennedy making the statement with the following observation: 

“When a Supreme Court justice compares his own lawless rulings to the draconian oppression of the Nazis – and says that Christians should resign from public office if they will not surrender to his imperious decrees – that really says it all. Those are his words, not mine. Justice Kennedy is holding up the Nazis as exemplars for the current Supreme Court. 

I, for one, would rather stand with heroes like Bonhoeffer, than the tyrants who inflicted unspeakable evil. And the persecution of Christians – in Iran, China, or America – is simply wrong.” 

If Justice Kennedy took his own advice, he would be the one to resign.

This is clearly an admission by Justice Kennedy that Justice Alito descending remark was true when he said this is "an abuse of judicial power".
