The far-left activists of the Big Gay Hate Machine are on the loose in Congress.
Just after the the left-wing hate machine finished targeting the business interests of a pro-same-sex marriage hotelier in New York for trying unsuccessfully to convince a U.S. Senator and presidential candidate to support their cause—and drop his opposition to same-sex marriage—they’ve now entered Congress with an effort to silence any and all dissent.
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), a liberal from Colorado, just introduced a bill designed to make it illegal for his colleague Rep. Steve King (R-IA) to be a legislator—a position King, like Polis, is elected to under the terms laid out by the U.S. Constitution. Polis ostensibly introduced his bill, titled the “Restrain Steve King From Legislating Act,” in response to King introducing legislation that would ensure states—and not the federal government—handle the issue of same-sex marriage.
“For too long, Steve King has overstepped his constitutionally nonexistent judicial authority,” Polis said in a statement posted on his website. “Mr. King has perverted the Constitution to create rights to things such as discrimination, bullying, and disparate treatment. These efforts to enshrine these appalling values as constitutional rights were not envisioned by the voters, or by King’s colleagues who must currently try to restrain his attempts to single-handedly rewrite the nation’s founding principles on a bill-by-bill basis. I urge the House to bring this bill to the floor. If passed, my bill would preserve the right of millions of voters in all 50 states who would prefer that Steve King refrain from legislating a role for himself in their marriage decisions.”
King’s bill, which Polis’s proposal is in response to, is titled the “Restrain the Judges on Marriage Act of 2015.” King’s bill would strip federal judges of jurisdiction on marriage issues and return that power to the states—effectively stomping out the ability of the institutional left to use the legal system and activist judges to further their same-sex marriage agenda.
“For too long, federal courts have overstepped their constitutionally limited duty to interpret the Constitution,” King said in announcing his bill. “Rather, federal courts have perverted the Constitution to make law and create constitutional rights to things such as privacy, birth control, and abortion. These unenumerated, so-called constitutionally-protected rights were not envisioned by our Founding Fathers. My bill strips Article III courts of jurisdiction, and the Supreme Court of appellate jurisdiction, ‘to hear or decide any question pertaining to the interpretation of, or the validity under the Constitution of, any type of marriage.’ Second, my bill provides that ‘[n]o federal funds may be used for any litigation in, or enforcement of any order or judgment by, any court created by an Act of Congress.’ I urge the House to bring this bill to the Floor. If passed, my bill would stop the Court from destroying traditional marriage and preserve the votes of millions of voters in States that have passed bans on same-sex marriage.”
Rather than debating King on the merits or what he perceives to be demerits of the legislation, Polis introduced a bill aimed at silencing King and stripping him of his power—something the Constitution wouldn’t allow him to do anyway.
This comes on the heels of an unbelievable saga where two openly gay hoteliers in New York City—who support same-sex marriage and tried to convince Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to join their cause during a dinner in New York—have been the subject of boycott efforts by pro same-sex marriage activists for even meeting with Cruz. While they agreed with Cruz on America’s need to stand with Israel on the world stage, the hoteliers disagreed with him on same-sex marriage—Cruz supports traditional marriage. Left-wing activists targeted the gay hoteliers for even having a discussion with Cruz.
