Charles Lindbergh, DOMA, Polygamy, and the Supreme Court

Justice Kennedy’s majority opinion in the overthrow of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) made a mess of marriage and opened Pandora’s Box of future litigation that includes polygamy. Polygamists see that they’re next in line for judicial satisfaction. Kennedy and his fellow quartet of moral dilutionists greased the skids for further national decline.

The constitutional flaw in DOMA, Kennedy argued, was that it interfered “with the equal dignity of same-sex marriages.”

In order for same-sex marriage to be dignified, same-sex sex has to be dignified. There is no way morally, biologically, reasonably, or historically that same-sex sex can be dignified. Once the abnormality of same-sex sex is dignified by legal fiat, we can no longer claim that any sexual relationship can be labeled inappropriate.

Using surrogate humans for their electrical charges (as in the Matrix) is as morally acceptable as killing children in the womb or using non-sex organs as orifices for official legal acceptance and calling the “union” marriage.

This brings me to Charles Lindbergh (1902–1974). There are probably millions of people today who have never heard of Lindbergh. Lindbergh was a national hero after he made the first solo nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean on May 20–21, 1927.

If you don’t know much about Lindbergh, I suggest sitting down and watching The Spirit of St. Louis (1956) starring Jimmy Stewart.

The hero Lindbergh had a secret. While married to Anne Morrow, he had two families in Germany.

“[F]rom 1957 until his death in 1974, Lindbergh had a relationship with German hat maker Brigitte Hesshaimer (1926–2003) who lived in a small Bavarian town called Geretsried (35 km south of Munich). On November 23, 2003, DNA tests proved that he fathered her three children. The two managed to keep the love affair secret; even the children did not know the true identity of their father, whom they saw when he came to visit once or twice per year using the alias ‘Careu Kent.’ . . .  At the same time as Lindbergh was involved with Brigitte Hesshaimer, he also had a relationship with her sister, Marietta (born 1924), who bore him two more sons.”

If same-sex marriages are “dignified,” then what can anybody say against Lindbergh’s polygamist marriages?

The Court has turned all moral reasoning on its head. Now everything is up for grabs.

The moral fallout will be devastating. The five unjust judges will go to their grave mumbling, “What have we done?” But by then, it could be too late
