Here’s what’s coming next.
Watch for a *cough* *cough* totally unforseeable constitutional challenge to Section 2(e) of the bill, which states:
No Private Cause of Action – Nothing in this section, or the amendments made by this section, shall be construed to create a private cause of action.
Once that section’s excised with surgical precision by a sympathetic lefty judge (Vaughn Walker to the lavender courtesy phone, please!) … Katie bar the door.
The gay activists in uniform will then sue to be allowed to marry, notwithstanding Section 2(d) of this bill, which states:
Benefits – Nothing in this section, or the amendments made by this section, shall be construed to require the furnishing of benefits in violation of section 7 of title 1, United States Code (relating to the definitions of “marriage” and “spouse” and referred to as the “Defense of Marriage Act”).
Once 2(d) is gone & a few suitable test couples get hitched, retire, & file for marriage-related benefits in the civilian world, guess what’ll be next on the chopping block?
After that inconvenient law is out of the gay activists’ way (phone call for Judge Walker on line 3) they’ll demand more than “tolerance.” They’ll demand financial benefits & federal protection for gay “marriage,” state laws be damned. Why? They can’t cite national security, because effective national defense matters not one whit to these activists. No, they’ll simply cite the full faith and credit clause found in Article IV Section 1 of the Constitution:
Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. And the Congress may by general laws prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof.
Game over. It’ll be “Sit down, shut up, & hand over those wallets, you hateful bigoted Christianist breeders.”
This. Is. Their. Goal.
