Tulsa Beacon: Don't retain Judge Jane Wiseman


Don't retain Judge Jane Wiseman
Editorial (link)

As the majority of Oklahomans watched in disgust, Judge Jane Wiseman officiated the first legalized homosexual marriage October 6 and called it a "joyous occasion."

Wiseman is on the Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals. She jumped into the contentious issue of homosexual marriage because she is an ultra-liberal in a conservative state.

Wiseman gleefully officiated over the wedding of two Tulsa World lesbians, the first time that two homosexuals were married in this state. Inaction by the U.S. Supreme Court let stand a federal appeals court decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act – an amendment to the Oklahoma Constitution approved by more than 75 percent of the state's voters.

In other words, one federal judge, Judge Terrance Kern, got to overthrow the will of the people and permitted homosexual marriage.

Kern is a federal judge and is not voted on by the good people of Oklahoma.

Wiseman is.

In fact, Wiseman will be on the Nov. 4 ballot and subject to a retention vote.

Any Bible-believing Christian in Oklahoma should vote "no" on Wiseman.

Any conservative in Oklahoma should vote "no" on Wiseman.

Anybody who thinks that marriage apart from one man and one woman is a perversion should vote "no" on Wiseman.

Anyone who believes that judges should not legislate should vote "no" on Wiseman.

The liberal Tulsa World, employer of the lesbians who filed the lawsuit against holy matrimony, has endorsed Wiseman. The arrogant World editorial staff wrote, "Judges handle hundreds of appeals annually but none of the nine judges (including Wiseman) faces any organized opposition or is the subject of any controversies. Each deserves a yes vote."

Wiseman deserves a "no" vote.

If Oklahomans vote her out of office, it will be a message to the other liberal, activist judges to start following the law and the will of the people.

As the majority of Oklahomans watched in disgust, Judge Jane Wiseman officiated the first legalized homosexual marriage October 6 and called it a "joyous occasion."
