Is The Fall of Western civilization at hand?

Dr. James Dobson, who founded the highly influential groups Focus on the Family and Family Research Council and now runs Family Talk Radio, is warning that if the U.S. Supreme Court redefines marriage as analysts predict, the ruling will presage the “fall of Western civilization.”
“I do not recall a time when the institutions of marriage and the family have faced such peril, or when the forces arrayed against them were more formidable or determined,” he writes in a letter distributed to his hundreds of thousands of supporters.

“Barring a miracle, the family that has existed since antiquity will likely crumble, presaging the fall of Western civilization itself. This is a time for concerted prayer, divine wisdom and greater courage than we have ever been called upon to exercise,”


I can’t be sure, but it looks like the Supreme Court is about to rule in favor of same-sex marriage. In doing so, it will be declaring the Supreme Court to be a new Olympus made up of a plurality of gods
For decades Supreme Court justices have been working for self-deification. Catherine Drinker Bowen's fictionalized biography of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Yankee from Olympus, wasn’t all that fictional.
“Holmes helped move American legal thinking towards legal realism, as summed up in his maxim: ‘The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience.’ Holmes espoused a form of moral skepticism and opposed the doctrine of natural law, marking a significant shift in American jurisprudence. As he wrote in one of his most famous decisions, his dissent in Abrams v. United States (1919), he regarded the United States Constitution as ‘an experiment, as all life is an experiment’ and believed that as a consequence ‘we should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe and believe to be fraught with death.’”
The constitutional experiment is over. Five unelected judges now rule on high creating rights ex nihilo, out of nothing, actually, like the birth of Athena, out of the head of the fictional god Zeus.
If five judges can redefine marriage, then they can redefine anything and everything. Seven of them redefine the status of unborn children in a 1973 decision. They found the right to kill unborn babies in the “penumbra,” the shadows, of the Constitution.
