The recent Supreme Court ruling was a crushing blow to those who stand firmly for traditional marriage. However, it seems that was not enough. The liberal politicians and LGBT supporters are now attacking any and all remaining links to traditional marriage.
Rep. Lois Capps (D-Calif.) is sponsoring a bill to remove the words “husband” and “wife” from federal law and replace them with gender-neutral words such as "spouse", as reported in this recent Blaze article.
Capp says the “Amend The Code For Marriage Equality Act” bill “recognizes that the words in our laws have meaning and can continue to reflect prejudice and discrimination even when rendered null by our highest courts. Our values as a country are reflected in our laws. I authored this bill because it is imperative that our federal code reflect the equality of all marriages.”
The bill will first need to pass through the House of Representatives and the Senate and while it may seem very unfair to strike the factually descriptive words that have been used for most of history, crazier things are happening in our country.
If this deeply bothers you, there are a couple things you can do: First, Share this article with others. People need to know what is happening! Second, call your representatives in Congress and the Senate to let them know that you oppose the “Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act.” And third, pray!
