Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are desperate. They are trying to appease their far-left base before the November election while also trying to distract Americans from the failures of the Biden Administration and the Democrat-run Congress.
How? Yesterday, Democrats introduced H.R. 8404, a bill to codify same-sex marriage. Today, they are putting that bill on the House Floor for a vote.
Democrats are working so hard to fast-track the bill that the legislation was announced and the House Rules Committee began a hearing on the bill- in less than an hour. This is an extreme breach of congressional norms.
This is why their credibility continues to tank with the American people. While gas prices and inflation soar, leaders of the Democrat party continue preaching a woke agenda in their echo chamber. But American families aren’t buying what they’re selling. Moms and dads don’t want their daughters turned into sons in government schools. Americans don’t want “all abortion all the time”—even up to birth. And voters didn’t elect our leaders to redefine marriage in order to “play that on repeat” in an effort to bring us all into submission.
In 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court invented a “right” to same-sex marriage, completely redefining this institution established by God and given special importance in our law. Like Roe, this ruling was egregiously wrong. The Court ignored voters and state legislatures that recognized marriage is between one man and one woman.
But Americans know the truth: marriage is between one man and one woman. Americans also know that, when possible, children deserve the chance to be raised with both a mother and a father.
It makes no sense for the legislative branch to parade around a wrongly decided Court ruling.
