California’s Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, from San Francisco, has introduced and President Obama quickly endorsed a new bill, S.598, to promote homosexual marriage. Attempting to repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), this new proposal is mislabeled as the “Respect for Marriage Act” (RFMA). It will overwrite the current federal law that defines marriage as being between one man and one woman.
White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters “President Obama is proud to support the Respect for Marriage Act,” which actually disrespects traditional marriage by enforcing homosexual marriage upon all 50 states. His views are no longer “evolving.” Rather this president is now proudly promoting gay marriage nationwide—the exact opposite of what he promised as a candidate.
If this new law is passed and the federal DOMA law repealed, all 44 state laws modeled after it could be in danger of being overturned in court. While many Republicans in the House may (or may not) oppose this radical bill, the prospects for passage of homosexual marriage in the U.S. Senate are strong, since pro-homosexual Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) controls the voting schedule and could attach such a bill to the Pentagon budget, like he did last year to pass “Hate Crimes.”
Bottom line: traditional marriage between one man and one woman is now in danger at the national level a third time: not only from activist courts, not only from the President and his “we won’t defend DOMA” Department of Justice, but now from the U.S. Congress. May our God help us!
