National Organization for Marriage has turned its marriage march into “National Marriage Lobby Day.” The futile fest is scheduled for June 19. After all, it was so successful the last time around:
Last year’s tremendously successful March brought thousands of marriage champions to the nation’s capitol the day the Supreme Court was hearing arguments in the Prop 8 and DOMA cases. We sent a clear message to the powers that be in Washington that Americans believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman, and that children deserve both a mom and a dad. The voices and presence of several thousand marriage champions echoed through the halls of Congress and the Supreme Court that day.
Apparently, the Supreme Court didn’t get that message, dealing a fatal blow to marriage discrimination. Of course, NOM – being NOM – gets to have its own version of the facts.
You see, last year the Supreme Court gave us something of a split decision in the Windsor case involving DOMA. While tragically invalidating a section of DOMA that defined marriage under federal law, the Court reaffirmed that marriage is and always has been in the purview of the states to regulate and define.
Actually, I don’t see. Justice Kennedy, writing for the majority, was unequivocal that states could not, in regulating marriage, violate the constitutional rights of citizens. It seems that quite a few federal judges see it Kennedy’s way as well.
I am not exactly sure who they intend to lobby and for what purpose. I guess that any excuse will do to part suckers from their money.
Won’t you please support NOM’s efforts to fight back against the disregard of the Obama administration and federal judges for marriage and the values of millions of American citizens through a generous contribution to support our lobbying efforts?
Have these baffled boobs bothered to look at polls recently?
