California Supreme Court Finally Gets It Right (Almost) About Same-Sex Marriage and Prop 8: Gay Marriage No Longer Legal

The California Supreme Court finally got it almost right on Tuesday, May 26. Same-sex (aka gay) marriage is now illegal in the State of California.


Why shouldn't it be? California voters voted twice on this issue and made it clear that they didn't want same-sex marriage to be legal in California, but the liberal court system did not want to believe this truth. So it is good news that the California Supreme Court finally gets it.


The other side of the issue, though, is that the 18,000 same-sex couples who were already married prior to November 0f 2008, when the California Supreme Court was ignoring the wishes of California voters, will remain married! This seems odd, because how can same-sex marriage be legal for some gay couples, and illegal for the rest?


The California Supreme Court should have declared all same-sex marriages performed in November of 2008 to be illegal also, since the very legality of a California Supreme Court judge declaring that he has more authority than California voters is unethical, and maybe even illegal in itself.


An interesting sidebar to all of this is that prior to the Proposition 8 election, an ad was aired repeatedly by gay activists on Los Angeles television stations, declaring that gay couples have no rights in California, and that denying gay couples these rights was equal to denying rights to Jews in Nazi Germany's holocaust during WWII.


The fact of the matter is that even during the airing of those ads, full rights to same-sex couples were already in force, guaranteed by law in the state of California. The conservative rebuttal to Proposition 8 even mentioned the exact numbering of the law in my Official Voters' Guide.


So this was a downright lie on the part of gay activists, intent on deceiving the public at large. Fortunately, though, this deceptive tactic didn't work, because California voters still voted against gay marriage.


In this morning's Los Angeles Times   (May 27) article, the truth has finally come out about this advertising deception:


"'Proposition 8 merely 'carves out a narrow and limited exception' to the state constitutional protection gays and lesbians now receive, Chief Justice Ronald M. George wrote for the majority.'"


"The court majority said same-sex couples would continue to have the right to choose life partners and enter into 'committed, officially recognized and protected family relationships' that enjoy all the benefits of marriage under the state's domestic partnership law."


"'Like opposite-sex couples, same-sex couples enjoy this protection not as a matter of legislative grace, but of constitutional right,' George wrote."


"UC Berkeley constitutional law professor Goodwin Liu said the ruling shows "the court continues to be very deferential to the processes of direct democracy in California."


In spite of the above quotes regarding the legal rights of same-sex couples in California, an Associate Justice disagrees:


"In a separate, concurring opinion, Associate Justice Kathryn Mickle Werdegar noted some rights married couples have that domestic partners do not, and suggested that the state now has the duty 'to eliminate the remaining important differences.'"


What are those "important differences?" The Los Angeles Times article doesn't mention them.

Memorial Day TV: ABC Airs Gay Lesbian Marriage On "All My Children"

I am totally shocked by ABC's decision to air a gay lesbian marriage on "All My Children", an ABC daytime television soap opera, on Memorial Day, when children and teens are home from school. Not only were children and teenagers, especially vulnerable female teenagers, able to watch two women being married, but also kissing on the lips.

This outrageously liberal scene was aired on KABC TV's "All My Children" just a short time ago, but note that "All My Children" is aired all over the country, maybe the world, in whatever time zones are appropriate for any given area.

There is no way this can be an accident, seeing as the California Courts are expected to make an official decision Tuesday, May 26, about whether the voters of California get to see their Vote Against Gay Marriage upheld or ignored.


The fact that ABC (owned by The Walt Disney Company, by the way) would make a choice to air this episode of All My Children at all is deplorable enough in itself, but to choose Memorial Day as the day of the airing is irresponsible, irreverent, and despicable.


Today, Memorial Day, is the day that Americans honor those heroic soldiers that died for the sake of American freedom. I am certain that the liberty Americans recognize in the United States of America didn't include gay marriage in the minds of America's founding fathers.

Memorial Day In May Of 1868 and General John A. Logan

Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. Memorial Day is a day to remember those who died in the service of the United States of America.

"General John A. LoganLibrary of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, [LC-B8172- 6403 DLC (b&w film neg.)]
Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his
General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states."

Kiefer Sutherland Apologizes For Head Butt Incident; Jack Bauer's Deathbed Confession to Muslim Imam On "24" Still A Mystery

Was Jack Bauer making his deathbed confession to the Muslim Imam in the final episode of Fox TV's 24, Season 7 , or was Jack Bauer merely having a pleasant conversation with him? You have a chance to vote on this, as well as 9 other fun questions, on my first Conservative Wordsmith Poll, entitled
Did Jack Bauer Convert To Islam During His Deathbed Confession To The Muslim Imam?.


Speaking of Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland (the actor who portrays American hero Jack Bauer on 24) recently apologized for the heavily publicized, although unwarranted, head butt incident with a Manhattan, New York fashion designer, and there's a good chance now that all charges will be dropped.

"'I am sorry about what happened that night and sincerely regret that Mr. McCollough was injured,' Sutherland said in the statement.The star of Fox television's '24' was charged May 7 with third-degree assault in the alleged incident two weeks ago at a nightclub at the Mercer Hotel in the trendy SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. The minor charge is comparable to a speeding ticket.'"1


"A spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney's office declined to comment on whether the charges would be dismissed.But now that Sutherland and McCollough say they have resolved their differences, a prosecutor may go before a judge and ask that the case be dropped. That could happen at Sutherland's next scheduled court appearance on June 22.'"1

24's 7th Season: Jack Bauer's Muslim Imam Confession Continues To Perplex Fans Worldwide

Kiefer Sutherland's portrayal of Jack Bauer's deathbed confession to a Muslim imam on Fox TV's 24, Season 7, Monday night, has evidently created a huge controversy for puzzled fans.

On Tuesday, I wrote and published several posts about 24 character Jack Bauer's sudden interest in, and possible conversion, to the Islam religion. Both of my sites (http://www.conservativewordsmith.com/ and http://conservativewordsmith.townhall.com/) received many visitors from all over the world. Perplexed 24 fans continue to visit my sites today.

Jack Bauer has been merciless to terrorists of any kind, especially fanatical Muslim Jihadist terrorists, in many of the past episodes during previous seasons of 24. Granted, the Muslim imam is definitely not a terrorist of any kind, but Jack's sudden interest in choosing to speak to a Muslim imam, as a spiritual advisor, during his possible last days on earth, is perplexing to many 24 fans.

Thanks to one of my erudite commentators, I have been informed that the extremely conservative Joel Surnow, one of the original creators and a major producer of 24, resigned in 2008. I had not previously been aware of this. I checked it out, and here is an excerpt from ZAP2it regarding this fact:

"Joel Surnow, a co-creator of "24," is leaving the show to pursue other projects.Surnow had been thinking about leaving the FOX show for a while, and during the writers' strike he came to a firm decision. His departure is effective immediately, meaning he won't be part of the 16 episodes yet to be filmed for the show's seventh season, the showbiz trade papers report." 1

According to an an article published in the Hollywood Reporter, and cited in a libertas, A FORUM FOR CONSERVATIVE THOUGHT ON FILM post entitled 'Joel Surnow Exits “24″, "'The openly conservative Surnow, who jokingly labeled himself a 'right-wing nut job,' has been the most visible of the masterminds behind '24.'He hasn’t shied from speaking his mind and made headlines in November when he said: 'Are we nuts thinking Hillary Clinton could be president of this country? Honest to God, just stand back and think about it.' Ironically, the upcoming seventh season of '24,' slated to debut in January 2009, features the first female U.S. president, played by Cherry Jones.'"

Joel Surnow's resignation from 24 is one plausible explanation for the mystery of Jack Bauer's deathbed confession to a Muslim imam. I emphasize the word one, because I believe there is more to it than the resignation of Joel Surnow.

However, Mr. Surnow's resignation certainly is an important factor in understanding Season 7's overly liberal slant, not only on the Muslim issue, but other issues also, such as a female president who is completely against torture of any kind, including that of terrorists.

24 Sparks Jack Bauer/Muslim Imam Controversy In Monday's Episode

In the history of Fox TV's 24 series, the 7th Season, and final episode, depicting Jack Bauer's deathbed confession with a Muslim imam has sparked possibly the biggest controversy since the show first started.

I maintain 2 sites, this one (www.conservativewordsmith.com), and my Townhall.com blog (http://conservativewordsmith.townhall.com). Both sites have been receiving many visitors today upon publishing my initial published post earlier, "24 Hero Jack Bauer Confesses To Muslim Imam On Deathbed." *See My Related Posts below.

What exactly is a Muslim imam? According to Wikipedia, "An imam (Arabic: إمام plural ائمة A'immah‎, Persian: امام) is an Islamic leadership position. Often the leader of a mosque and the community."

Click the provided Wikipedia link to read more.

Answers.com states that a imam is

"In law and theology, the caliph who is successor to Muhammad as the lawful temporal leader of the Islamic community.
The male prayer leader in a mosque.
The Muslim worshiper who leads the recitation of prayer when two or more worshipers are present."

24 Saga Of Jack Bauer's Confession to a Muslim Imam Continues

Earlier this morning, I wrote a post about Kiefer Sutherland's character, Jack Bauer, as he was portrayed on Monday night's final episode of 24. I have received many hits on my site since then. Obviously depicting Jack Bauer as making his final deathbed confession to a Muslin imam has struck a strong chord with many 24 fans.

I have been an avid fan and follower of 24 since Day 1, and I don't recall Jack Bauer's religion having ever been mentioned on any of the previous episodes. Jack Bauer, having been a crusader, in a manner of speaking, against terrorism in past episodes, Muslim Jihadist terrorism in particular, has never shown any religious interest in becoming a Muslim.

It is puzzling as to why the writers/producers (bear in mind that Kiefer Sutherland is one of the producers of 24) chose to do this. Are they that anxious to make fans of the Muslim population at large? Or are they now being overly zealous in their efforts to try to erase the memories in the minds of those protesting Muslims who were offended in the early days of the series, when the main focus of the show was to catch evil Muslim Jihadist terrorists, and even torture them?

Since I am not one of the writers or producers of 24, I can't claim to know the definitive answer to this perplexing question. However, I do believe that this tactic, that is to say, Jack Bauer's deathbed confession to the spiritual Muslim imam, has not set well with the general population of avid 24 fans. It is not at all in character with Jack Bauer's past actions, and it really makes no sense at all.

And the greater question is in the minds of many 24 fans: Is Jack Bauer now actually a Muslim? Did he convert to Islam? Is he going to convert to Islam if he doesn't die? Or did he just not have any religious ties at all to any religion, and just happened to decide, at the last moment of his possible death, to request a visitation from a representative of a religion to which he has previously shown absolutely no interest whatsoever?


Of course, there is one other possibility: maybe Jack Bauer's body and brain have been so contaminated by exposure to dangerous substances (this happened in another 24 episode during Season 7), that he is now totally insane. Somehow, though, I don't think this is the answer. What appeared to be a conservative show with sometimes liberal slants has now taken a turn into a previously undiscovered dimension. Maybe the 8th season of 24 should even have a new name: The Twilight 24.

Annie Wersching, Alias 24's Renee Walker, Deserves Best Actress Emmy

Annie Wersching is a newcomer to 24, this being her first season on the Fox TV show. I must say that she is fantastic as the equally new character, FBI Agent Renee Walker.

Renee Walker gradually becomes a sort of female Jack Bauer, and Annie Wersching is so good in her portrayal that I almost believed that Jack Bauer is going to die, and that she will succeed him as the new hero. I no longer believe this however, due to the final few moments on Monday night's final episode of 24.

In any case, Annie Wersching deserves to be nominated, and win, an Emmy for Best Actress. She added so much vitality to Series 7, and, if the producers of 24 actually do kill off Jack Bauer (still don't think that's going to happen), she would be a fitting replacement.

Carlos Bernard, Alias 24's Tony Almeida, Deserves Best Actor Emmy

Carlos Bernard, known to 24 fans as the character Tony Almeida, definitely deserves a Best Actor's Emmy for his portrayal in Season 7 as a man seeking revenge for his wife Michelle's death, even if it means being responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans in the process.

Carlos Bernard has the ability to convince viewers that Tony Almeida is either incredibly good or incredibly evil, according to the script's ever changing flow. Carlos Bernard's portrayal of Tony Almeida as an evil man is chillingly convincing to even the most skeptical viewer.

It was hard to take when Tony Almeida suddenly became an evil terrorist before my astonished eyes, because his character seemed so good, and even innocent, in previous seasons of 24.

So, for the ability to act out politically-related espionage flip-flops better than any actor I have ever seen, I really would like to see Carlos Bernard be nominated for, and win, an Emmy.

24: Will Jack Bauer Be Dead Or Alive In Season 8?

The final episode of Season 7 on Fox TV's 24 Monday night hinted at the strong possibility that Jack Bauer (portrayed by actor Kiefer Sutherland) will still be alive in Season 8. In the last few moments, Jack Bauer's daughter asked the medical person in charge to do the stem cell procedure, implying that Jack will not die after all.

If the stem cell procedure does occur in a future 24 episode, this will not be offensive to conservatives, since the stem cells will come from Kim Bauer (portrayed by actress Elisha Cuthbert), Jack Bauer's adult daughter, and not from an aborted embryo.

24 Hero Jack Bauer Confesses To Muslim Imam On Deathbed

The final 2 episodes of 24 Monday night left viewers with questions about the show's hero Jack Bauer (portrayed by Kiefer Sutherland) asking to speak to a Muslim imam on his supposed deathbed. I checked on http://www.fox.com/24, the official 24 site, and there are some discussions on the forum about Jack Bauer seeing a Muslim imam on his deathbed.

Click these links to view current discussions:
Ironic twist- Jack coverts to Islam
Jack turns Muslim? Ha!

It is interesting that 24 initially gained extreme popularity after 9/11, especially with conservatives (I have been a huge fan of 24 since Day 1), due to its focus on terrorism, specifically fanatical Muslim, or Jihadist, terrorists. (Even popular conservative radio talk show host
Rush Limbaugh, for example, stated that he is a huge fan of this show, at least he used to be. Rush Limbaugh has mentioned that he had flown in to Los Angeles to be a special backstage guest at the 24 studio a few years ago.)

Somewhere down the road, 24 was criticized for being politically incorrect, and eventually an official and very politically correct apology was made (I believe by Kiefer Sutherland), regarding the Muslim issue, during one of the commercial breaks. Was an apology really necessary?

Now the final episode depicts Jack Bauer as looking up to the Muslim imam as, evidently, the only religious person he could think of to talk to during his last few breaths on earth. I guess the producers (and Kiefer Sutherland, the actor who portrays Jack Bauer, is one of the producers of 24) have now decided to carry their political correctness to the extreme. Why did the producers of 24 ever feel the need to please and pacify the Muslim community in the first place? Do they honestly think that the viewers don't know what they're trying to do? Why not have Jack Bauer call in his family Christian pastor, for example? Maybe Jack Bauer has always been an atheist.

Don't get me wrong. I'm glad that Jack Bauer chose to talk to someone with some kind of spiritual authority, and I would like to mention that the actor who portrays the Muslim imam does so with just the right spiritual touch. It's just disturbing that while the praise of the virtues of a Muslim imam are portrayed, the possibility of a Christian pastor's ability to give counsel are completely ignored, especially in light of the fact that 24 has many conservative viewers who might also happen to be Christians. 24 fans are wondering if Jack Bauer has now converted to Islam.

I think the producers of 24 should, in the future, focus their attention on two things: their original purpose for this show, and excellent writing, rather than being so overly concerned about being politically correct. After all, it wasn't political correctness that made this show popular in the first place. It was the show's strong stance against Islamic terrorism, particularly the Jihad branch adhered to by Jihadist terrorists, that made 24, and the American hero Jack Bauer, one of the most popular series in the history of television.

Freddie Mercury's AIDS Announcement Made One Day Before He Died

I have been writing about the unique Freddie Mercury/Mary Austin love relationship. Freddie Mercury was gay.


Here are the last public words Freddie Mercury spoke, a little over 24 hours before his death from bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS.


"Although rumours about his health were rampant, he continued to deny that he had AIDS. However, from the video for "These Are the Days of Our Lives," which represents Mercury's last appearance on film, it was clear from his gaunt appearance that he was seriously ill. *(Scroll to the bottom of this post to view this video.) On November 22, 1991 Mercury called Queen's manager Jim Beach over to his Kensington home to discuss a public statement. The following day, November 23, the following announcement was made to the press:


'Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private to date to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come now for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with my doctors and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease. My privacy has always been very special to me and I am famous for my lack of interviews. Please understand this policy will continue.'" 1

Freddie Mercury: Would He Vote For Or Against Gay Marriage?

My guess is that you probably won't hear about Queen's famous rocker Freddie Mercury, and his amazing love for a woman, Mary Austin, from most gay activist organizations. In case you're visiting from an unknown planet,Freddie Mercury was gay (no pun intended).


Gay activists want heterosexuals to believe that not allowing gays to marry is tantamount to being a Jew-hater in Nazi Germany. In other words, that being gay is equal to being a member of a religious denomination, such as Judaism (Gayism?).


In fact, there was a television advertisement implying this shortly before Californians voted against gay marriage a second time, in spite of the California Court's previous positive ruling. I saw the ad myself, and it implied that if you don't vote in favor of gay marriage, you are an intolerant racist bigot.

I'm sorry, but homosexuality isn't a religion. While it is true that Hitler's Nazi henchmen killed about 6 million Jews, many homosexuals and practically wiped out the entire Gypsy population in Europe, along with torturing the mentally challenged, and others, that still doesn't make homosexuality a religion or a race. It is a sexual preference, nothing more and nothing less.

Would Freddie Mercury have been in favor of gay marriage had he made it to 2009? I don't think so. Freddie only had eyes, in his soul, in his innermost being, for a woman, Mary Austin. I don't believe that the thought of marrying a man ever even entered his brain.

Here's a short video of Freddie Mercury's last public appearance in 1990. Freddie Mercury died, a victim of AIDS due to his promiscuous homosexual behavior, in 1991.

Freddie Mercury: His Heart Belonged To Mary Austin

It is well known that Freddie Mercury, rock star of Queen (real name Farrokh Bulsara), practiced a homosexual lifestyle and was one of the earliest celebrities to die of AIDS as a direct result of his promiscuous gay behavior. Nevertheless, in spite of all that, Freddie Mercury persisted to proclaim his undying love for a woman named Mary Austin.

"He once said of Austin- 'All my lovers asked me why they couldn't replace Mary (Austin) but it's simply impossible. The only friend I've got is Mary and I don't want anybody else. To me, she was my common-law wife. To me, it was a marriage. We believe in each other, that's enough for me. I couldn't fall in love with a man the same way as I have with Mary.'"[21] 1

Take Two Aspirins and Contact the Wordsmith

Question: What is the definition of a wordsmith?

Answer: Answers.com states that a wordsmith is: "A fluent and prolific writer, especially one who writes professionally." "An expert on words." "A person who works with words; a skillful writer."

All of the above are true, and yet there is more to being a wordsmith, at least according to my interpretation of the word . . .

Open Letter to Dairus Dugger, Winner of The 2009 Frivolous Lawsuit Award???

Dear Mr. Dairus Dugger,

Perhaps you should consider changing your name from Dairus Dugger to Dairus Digger, Gold Digger, that is, due to filing such a frivolous lawsuit against Burger King.

It is indeed sad that so many Americans are now suffering severe economic losses. Maybe this applies to you. If that is the case, there has to be a better way of earning your living. Don't you think that everyone who has any common sense at all (even the most severe liberal) knows that you could not possibly have suffered a "severe allergic reaction" from either pickles, onions, or tomatoes?

Besides all that, even if you happen to be one out of 100,000,000,000 people that truly did suffer this strange malady, why did you not file your lawsuit until two years later? If you had suffered that greatly, it would seem that you would have sued in a timely manner. After all, it's been about two years (April 10, 2007) since the alleged incident occurred.

Are you seeking fame, Mr. Dugger? Is that what this is about? The extremely wealthy King Solomon wrote in Proverbs 22:1 that "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold." - The Online King James Bible, Proverbs 22:1

Dairus Dugger, Notorious Pickle Hater, Sues Burger King

Conservative Wordsmith Susan Baldwin appreciates your thoughts and comments.

Burger King Sued By Pickle-Hater Dairus Dugger

Dairus Dugger had the audacity to sue a Burger King restaurant for adding pickles, onions, and tomatoes to his burger. According to the Virginian Pilot newspaper, Mr. Dugger requested that these items not be included.

It's should be enough that the lawsuit in itself is laughable beyond words, but there's more to this story. Please note that the incident occurred on April 10, 2007, two years ago! "Dairus Dugger is seeking $100,000 in damages after alleging that the restaurant in James City County, Virginia, failed to heed his 'specific request for the omission of onions, pickles and tomatoes.'"
