The ‘Respect for Marriage Act’?

To undermine Liberty, Demos must erode the historic faithful understanding of marriage and family.

Pride Month” may be over, but the Rainbow Mafia is never content.

The gender confusion protagonists took a break from promoting their so-called “transgender” agenda — you know, ensuring men can be in girl’s dressing rooms and promoting the sexual mutilation of ever-younger children — to fein offense at anthropologists who identify the gender of skeletal remains. Apparently, a gaggle of professorial snowflakes in America’s institutions of higher learning are stressing over their colleagues who dare to affix male and female labels to skeletons.

Of course, the gender of skeletal remains is easy to determine based on the fact that the bone structure of men and women is markedly different — you know, kinda like other things that differentiate men and women. But the triggered detractors insist that assigning gender to such remains does not take into account what gender that long-deceased individual might have identified as.

Yes, that is where the Left’s absurd “gender identity” doctrine has taken us this week.

But these gender-deluded individuals are not just hanging out on university campuses. They have infested the halls of Congress.

I enter into evidence the fact that the House just passed the so-called “Respect for Marriage Act” by a 267-157 vote – 47 Republicans voting with Democrats. This misnamed legislation is a masterful example of the BIG Lie, boldly calling something what it is not. Demos have mastered the Soviet-era communist “dezinformatsia” (disinformation) propaganda model of labeling a brazen lie the opposite of what it actually is.

And enlarging the lie, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) insisted: “It is critical to ensure that federal law protects those whose constitutional rights might be threatened by Republican-controlled state legislatures. LGBTQ Americans and those in interracial marriages deserve to have certainty that they will continue to have their right to equal marriage recognized, no matter where they live.”

What? There is not one subatomic particle of concern in any state that a legislature is preparing to outlaw “interracial marriages.” Oh, wait, we see what you did there, Steny — frame this legislation as if homosexual preference, the whole LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ thing, is equivalent to legitimate race-based civil rights. Then, by extension, suggest any Republican voting against it also opposes interracial marriages. That was really slick!

Demos claim the bill is necessary because, after the Supreme Court returned regulation of abortion to the states, Justice Clarence Thomas suggested that other rulings should be revisited: “In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.” That is a reference to mandates regarding the redefinition of marriage.

But “interracial marriages”? For the record, Clarence and Virginia Thomas have an interracial marriage.

Basically, this legislation further codifies the Left’s redefinition of marriage by establishing national reciprocity — forcing states to recognize “same-sex marriage” licenses from other states, much as they do driver’s licenses. Still waiting on national reciprocity ensuring states recognize “right to carry” licenses!

Now it’s on to the Senate where the bill is likely to get soft Republican support for the same reason House Republicans folded.

Let me assure you, the uber-leftists in Congress and across the nation, who are relentlessly seeking to redefine the timeless “binary” definition of marriage as between a man and woman, are not motivated, first and foremost, by placating their gender-dysphoric constituents. They understand that faith and family are the foundational pillars of American Liberty, the nemesis of their statist agenda. Thus, their objective is to undermine the timeless traditions of faith and family.

To accomplish this, they must erode the natural science defining gender and the historic faithful understanding of marriage.

To that end, political and cultural observer Dennis Prager wrote this week about a banner on Boston’s historic Church of the Covenant, which exemplifies that erosion.

The banner read: “And God said … Protect Abortion Access 4 All, Ensure Black Lives Matter, Honor Bodily Autonomy. Defend LGBTQ+ Rights, End Voter Suppression, Turn Guns into Plows, Abandon Fossil Fuels, Provide Sanctuary, Abolish Prisons…” ad nauseam. Of this message, Prager notes, “If you needed one example of how destructive leftism has been to mainstream Christianity, both Catholic and Protestant, and to non-Orthodox Judaism, this banner would suffice.”

For sure, that banner does not represent the Gospel that most churches outside of woke urban centers embrace — those not led by the Left elite who have also infiltrated the clergy.
