LEGISLATING MORALITY AND THE END OF DOMA

In 1996, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) passed both houses with an overwhelming majority.  Today it was ruled, at least in part, as unconstitutional. 

I thought it was the left that kept telling us that "you can't legislate morality"? 
When 9 unelected Federal Judges redefine 4000 years of recorded history to determine what marriage is and isn't for 300 million people, we have a problem.  But they keep doing it.  They keep finding what is not to be found in the constitution, as if to fit their own worldview.
In 1857 the infamous Dred Scott decision deemed those of African ancestry not permitted to become U.S. citizens. 
In 1973 the high court decided somehow that the U.S. Constitution supported the idea of mothers being allowed to kill their unborn baby, for private companies to profit from it and public money to be utilized as accessory to this murder. 
But what of this Court lead by Chief Justice John Roberts, a 2005 Bush appointee? 
Just last year the court somehow managed to pervert the constitution and decide that Obamacare, otherwise known as the Affordable (which it's not) Health Care Act, is a tax and therefore legal to compel the citizenry to buy a specific product, and if not, American's for the first time in the history of the Republic will be breaking a Federal law. If you wondered what we would be compelled to buy next, perhaps it is this latest judicial legislation, and I am not sure about you, but I ain't buyin'.

Today, thanks to this Court, we have a new America.  An America defined by nine non-elected justices that see the world and the constitution much differently than most of America and I suspect all of their prior peers.  A court that rather than giving room for the People to speak, the constitution to speak (or not speak as the case may be) or even the states to speak, legislate their morality upon us.
