â€œGod created Adam and Eve, He didnâ€™t create Adam and Steve,â€ said Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., on behalf of a measure that supporters said was designed to protect an institution as old as civilization itself.
My jaw dropped when I read that. What happened to seperation of Church and State Mr Roscoe Bartlett, R-MD??
The very fact that this ‘amendment’ is even being persued is rediculous.
The Constitutions already states that the matter of marriage is to be settled at a state level. The Federal Goverment should not be allowed to enforce such a blatent difference… So in THIS article marraige is to be decided at a state level But in THIS article we ban gay marraige. It would turn the Constitution into a joke. And what kind of example does THAT set for a free Iraq?!!? You are free to do what you want as long as you goverment thinks it’s okay. Yeah, THAT’S a huge change from where they are now. GAH!
…the power to regulate “commerce” can by no means encompass authority over mere gun possession, any more than it empowers the Federal Government to regulate marriage, littering, or cruelty to animals throughout the 50 States.
