Tony Perkins wants to abolish the judicial system

“Just this week, another judge struck down a state marriage amendment. One of the most novel was Judge Jones in Pennsylvania back in May – he struck down Pennsylvania’s marriage amendment saying ‘it’s time to throw marriage laws onto the ash heap of history’. Frankly, I think it’s time we throw the opinions of unelected judges onto the dunghill of history where they belong.
