Supreme 'gay-marriage' pioneer gets blown out in run for office

The man who took his demand for gay “marriage” in America to the U.S. Supreme Court, resulting in that decision that destroyed millennia of traditional morality by “finding” such a right in the Constitution – has been blown out in his first bid in politics.

It is the Washington Stand that revealed the big loser is Jim Obergefell, whose name forever is linked to the Obergefell v. Hodges case through which the anti-Christian precedent was adopted for America.

He ran as a Democrat for the Ohio House of Representatives, losing by 23 percentage points.

Republican state Rep. D.J. Swearingen buried him 61% to 38%.

Obergefell conceded, “The results were not what we were hoping for.”

The Stand reported, “The two candidates could hardly have differed more on issues impacting life and the family. Obergefell — who was endorsed by the Human Rights Campaign (an LGBT pressure group), Pro-Choice America, and a coalition of teachers unions — vowed to spend his political capital expanding ballot drop box sites, ‘fighting efforts to ban books in schools and public libraries,’ and ‘defending teachers as the experts in instruction by stopping efforts to interfere in what they can say or teach in their classrooms.’ He campaigned on amending the state constitution to support abortion-on-demand and same-sex marriage and placing ‘gender identity’ in civil rights legislation on equal par with race, sex, and religion.”

He groused about religious rights for Christians who object to participating in same-sex ceremonies and such.

On the other hand, voters saw what Swearingen had done: He introduced a Parents’ Bill of Rights, which would require schools to notify parents before subjecting their children to any sexually explicit material. He co-sponsored a bill that would effectively end all abortions in Ohio one week before the election. Swearingen’s two-term legislative record won the support of Ohio Right to Life and other conservative groups, the report explained.

When the Supremes ruled, 5-4 in his case, meaning it was on the opinion of a single Democrat-appointed justice that the nation’s entire understanding of marriage was overturned by force, all protections for historical and scriptural marriage were destroyed.

He had flown to Maryland in 2013 to “marry” John Arthur. He then sued in Ohio for not recognizing what then was illegal in many states.

He frequently boasted about his scheme.

“I took a history making fight for equal rights all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court — and won,” he said.

The Stand reported, “During his unsuccessful campaign, his rhetoric bordered on the self-congratulatory. ‘I’ve been part of the national civil rights case that made life better for millions of Americans,’ Obergefell declared. ‘I championed the American ideals of equal justice under law, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and we the people.'”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
