    In other words, the courts are refusing to do their jobs and respect the Constitution.

    It's ridiculous that courts can refuse to hear a case on the basis that any finding might be too controversial. Are they bound to uphold the law or not?

    No, you weren't, and you should be thankful for that.

    Probably because there just wouldn't be enough time to deal with every case properly. And not every case needs to be argued in front of the Supreme Court.

    The "controversial" part was something another person alleged, not something the court claimed. In fact, I don't think the court ever gives a reason for why they choose not to hear a case.
