Posted on 07/19/2011 1:08:18 PM PDT by Pyro7480
Tomorrow the Senate will hold the first hearing on The Respect for Marriage Act, which repeals the Defense of Marriage Act, thus granting to all lawfully married couplesincluding same-sex couplesto receive federal marriage benefits and protections if they are joined by a valid marriage in a state where such marriages are legal.
The president has long called for a legislative repeal of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, which continues to have a real impact on the lives of real people --our families, friends and neighbors, White House press secretary Jay Carney said at todays press briefing.
He is proud to support the Respect for Marriage Act, introduced by Senator Feinstein and Congressman Nadler, which would take DOMA off the books once and for all," said Carney. "This legislation would uphold the principle that the federal government should not deny gay and lesbian couples the same rights and legal protections as straight couples.

Damn well better not go anywhere in the House...
Mr. Obozo is a fruit...A roton one.
Leftists are livid. Thus, expect to see more gay headlines like this.
LLS supports legislation to repeal obama!
A roton is an elementary excitation, or quasiparticle, in superfluid Helium-4.
LOL..Well he is that too!
What a bunch of EFFING LIARS!
How long before the ossified fossils Coburn, Crapo and Chambliss sign up?
How can allowing two homosexuals ,enamored with each others rectum ,to engage in these acts and have a ceremony they call marriage be calle respect for marriage.
Tere is nothing more disrespectful for marriage than a homosexual act.
This crap is sick and anyone who votes for it should be tarred and feathered.
I don’t klnow about the rest of America ,b ut I have about had a bellyful of queers and their enablers.
OBAMA SWINGS BOTH WAYS
I give up. I am sending both my kids to Canada to get an education and start a new life.
America is dead. As soon as this passes there is only one thing left to kill before the one world government takes over.
The second amendment.
So I wonder when he will support legislation making marriage between a heterosexual male and heterosexual female illegal?
Call it a hate crime or the like.
"We've also expanded enforcement efforts [including so-called homosexual civil rights] to guarantee that in our work places, our military bases, in our housing and lending markets, in our voting booths in our border areas, in our schools and places of worship. And I mean all places of worship," Holder also said.
LOL!! Geek porn. Unfortunately, I don’t speak the language, but I love the sound of it.
This proposal is nothing less than an OFFENSE Against Marriage Act!
“elementary excitation” probably describes the way his followers react to him.
Because the DOMA prevents married Gay couples from receiving Military benefits, for one.
America is dead. Yes it is. I don’t see how Canada is any better, but whatever.
Do we not think the Lord will not do the same to us??
light in the loafers? hmmm..yes he is that too!
as long as we’re discussing repealing legislation, OBAMCARE must GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
um... I thought we were broke? about to default on our obligations and take the whole world economy down with us... and yet we are seriously talking about ADDING people to the welfare system!?!?!?!
Never pass the House.
America is dead...Yes it is....
The Apostate church is in full swing..
The Spirit of the Antichrist is every-where
What was evil and wicked is now good and acceptable....
We wait....As the LORD said, those who shall endure until the end will be saved....
this wont pass muster in the house....
A whold bunch of new folks getting federal bennies. Is this one of the reasons obama wants another $2.5 trillion?
IMHO..We are now under *Divine Judgement*
After the rapture of the true church..This world will see the Wrath of GOD like they could never imagine...
Just like in the *Days of Noah*
I sure hope the pre-trib rapture folks are right...
Everyone knows darn well this is DOA in the house, just politics as usual vote pandering throwing red meat to the gays and gay supporters out there.
It’s only meant to ensure that every queer in the country will once again vote for anyone with a (D) after their name, hopefully pulling some Log Cabin republicans over also. The media will be sure to break down the vote count and make it crystal clear that not a single democrat voted against it.
I'm living in the Orwell novel I was forced to read in high school.
Hear, O you heavens, the things I speak, let the earth give ear to the words of my mouth. 2 Let my doctrine gather as the rain, let my speech distil as the dew, as a shower upon the herb, and as drops upon the grass. 3 Because I will invoke the name of the Lord: give magnificence to our God.
4 The works of God are perfect, and all his ways are judgments: God is faithful and without any iniquity, he is just and right. 5 They have sinned against him, and are none of his children in their filth: they are a wicked and perverse generation. 6 Is this the return you make to the Lord, O foolish and senseless people? Is not he your father, that has possessed you, and made you, and created you? 7 Remember the days of old, think upon every generation: ask your father, and he will declare to you: your elders and they will tell you. 8 When the Most High divided the nations: when he separated the sons of Adam, he appointed the bounds of people according to the number of the children of Israel. 9 But the Lord's portion is his people: Jacob the lot of his inheritance. 10 He found him in a desert land, in a place of horror, and of vast wilderness: he led him about, and taught him: and he kept him as the apple of his eye. 11 As the eagle enticing her young to fly, and hovering over them, he spread his wings, and has taken him and carried him on his shoulders. 12 The Lord alone was his leader: and there was no strange god with him. 13 He set him upon high land: that he might eat the fruits of the fields, that he might suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the hardest stone, 14 butter of the herd, and milk of the sheep with the fat of lambs, and of the rams of the breed of Basan: and goats with the marrow of wheat, and might drink the purest blood of the grape.
15 The beloved grew fat, and kicked: he grew fat, and thick and gross, he forsook God who made him, and departed from God his saviour. 16 They provoked him by strange gods, and stirred him up to anger, with their abominations. 17 They sacrificed to devils and not to God: to gods whom they knew not: that were newly come up, whom their fathers worshipped not. 18 You have forsaken the God that begot you, and have forgotten the Lord that created you.
19 The Lord saw, and was moved to wrath: because his own sons and daughters provoked him. 20 And he said: I will hide my face from them, and will consider what their last end shall be: for it is a perverse generation, and unfaithful children. 21 They have provoked me with that which was no god, and have angered me with their vanities: and I will provoke them with that which is no people, and will vex them with a foolish nation. 22 A fire is kindled in my wrath, and shall burn even to the lowest hell: and shall devour the earth with her increase, and shall burn the foundations of the mountains. 23 I will heap evils upon them, and will spend my arrows among them. 24 They shall be consumed with famine, and birds shall devour them with a most bitter bite: I will send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the fury of creatures that trail upon the ground, and of serpents. 25 Without, the sword shall lay them waste, and terror within, both the young man and the virgin, the sucking child with the man in years.
26 I said: Where are they? I will make the memory of them to cease from among men. 27 But for the wrath of the enemies I have deferred it: lest perhaps their enemies might be proud, and should say: Our mighty hand, and not the Lord, has done all these things. 28 They are a nation without counsel, and without wisdom. 29 O that they would be wise and would understand, and would provide for their last end. 30 How should one pursue after a thousand, and two chase ten thousand? Was it not, because their God had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up? 31 For our God is not as their gods: our enemies themselves are judges. 32 Their vines are of the vineyard of Sodom, and of the suburbs of Gomorrha: their grapes are grapes of gall, and their clusters most bitter. 33 Their wine is the gall of dragons, and the venom of asps, which is incurable. 34 Are not these things stored up with me, and sealed up in my treasures? 35 Revenge is mine, and I will repay them in due time, that their foot may slide: the day of destruction is at hand, and the time makes haste to come. 36 The Lord will judge his people, and will have mercy on his servants: he shall see that their hand is weakened, and that they who were shut up have also failed, and they that remained are consumed.
37 And he shall say: Where are their gods, in whom they trusted? 38 Of whose victims they ate the fat, and drank the wine of their drink offerings: let them arise and help you, and protect you in your distress. 39 See that I alone am, and there is no other God besides me: I will kill and I will make to live: I will strike, and I will heal, and there is none that can deliver out of my hand. 40 I will lift up my hand to heaven, and I will say: I live for ever. 41 If I shall whet my sword as the lightning, and my hand take hold on judgment: I will render vengeance to my enemies, and repay them that hate me. 42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh, of the blood of the slain and of the captivity, of the bare head of the enemies. 43 Praise his people, you nations, for he will revenge the blood of his servants: and will render vengeance to their enemies, and he will be merciful to the land of his people.
May God have mercy on us.
And the North American Man-Boy Love Association just changed its name to “Caring Big Brothers of America” /s
No. But with the current crop of RINO's we're plagued with, I could see this morphing into something like a national 'civil unions' bill, in the House. Every bit as bad as counterfeit marriage.
And yes, he/she/it got the zot already.
Serious question: Why didn’t the Democommies try to pass legislation like this when they held both houses of Congress?
I second that!
They started doing that to me right after New York counterfeited marriage.
Please don’t post content, per Admin Moderator. It just encourages the trolls.
But Canada has nationwide homosexual marriage, hate speech laws stricter than we have, and socialized medicine. Do you really want to give up and go to Canada, if you are concerned about homosexual marriage and other liberal issues????
Relax, it won’t pass. If fact, a backlash is likely to build.
So now he and Reggie Love can be married?
Me too MrB.....me to...
Yup, I got an e-mail from the zotted person. I think it was Margaret Hoover.
Horrible as this is, use it:
Black voters have ALWAYS voted against gay marriage.
Blacks voters THAT SHOW UP will overwhelmingly vote for Obama. But perhaps we can lower turnout by reminding them of Zero’s support of gay marriage, and the horrible unemployment that has hammered the black community during his reign.
Every hit we can deliver to his core base is (electorally) deadly. Do it!
Uh,since when is getting married a “right”? It’s not a right,just like driving is not a right;It’s a privlege. Where is it written in the Constitution that we have the right to get married,or to adopt?
It's not a right for us.
It's only a right for homosexuals.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
