As seen from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force press release below, the Democratic leadership in the U.S. Senate is working with homosexual groups to make homosexual marriage legal in all 50 states. The homosexual community and the Democratic party are not going to allow the American public to vote on this issue.

    Democratic Leadership Stands Solid In Pushing For Homosexual
    Marriage
    From: National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
    NGLTF Communications Department
    May 14, 2004

Washington, DC. Yesterday, leaders of the Democratic minority in the U.S. Senate pledged they would block any proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would prohibit the recognition of same-sex marriage. The commitment was made at a meeting in the Capitol between the Senate Leadership Council and leaders of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

"We are gratified that our allies in the Democratic minority have committed to killing any attempt to enshrine anti-gay discrimination into our nation's most sacred document," said Matt Foreman, Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. "This display of leadership stands in stark contrast to President Bush's calculated campaign to use our lives and our relationships as a wedge issue in the elections."


At yesterday's meeting, three senators -- Chuck Schumer (NY), Barbara Boxer (CA), and Debbie Stabenow (MI) -- reaffirmed the solidity of support against an amendment, regardless of any potential changes in its language. At a similar meeting last July 17, Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle said Democrats would ensure that the Federal Marriage Amendment would never get the 67 votes needed in the Senate to be passed on to the states for ratification. Since then, however, the religious and political right has mounted a furious campaign in support of the amendment, President Bush has called upon Congress to pass it, and different wordings of the amendment have been floated to
potentially soften its impact on domestic partnerships and civil unions. As a result, many LGBT leaders and organizations have become concerned about a softening of the commitment to oppose an amendment. To shore that up that support, LGBT groups have launched urgent fundraising and advocacy appeals.

"While the Right will continue to press Congress to move the amendment - and we still must be vigilant - our community can now start shifting focus and more of our resources to fighting the ugly tide of anti-gay initiatives we face in multiple states this November," Foreman said.

As of today, anti-marriage constitutional amendments will be on the November ballot in five states (Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and Utah). That number could easily double over the next
8-10 weeks. Other imperiled states include the key 2004 battleground states of Michigan, Ohio and Oregon.

 Our Liberal Canadian government did almost the same thing.
However, instead of doing it themselves, they allowed our high court to make a ruling on a case, where gays complained that it was their constitutional right to be treated equally. The court ruled in their favor!

 So for the first time in our countries history, the government did not pass legislation, our courts actually did! No one in government disputed it!

Oklahoma Howdy to Bronzesnake,

The "Balance of Power" in America that the founders intended is broken. It is not the job of the courts to legislate on behalf of the people. That job belongs to the people we elect for that specific purpose. It's far past time for the courts to get a haircut. I'm thinking that a burr haircut is in order.

Love In Christ,

Oklahoma Howdy to Dreamweaver,

Thanks Brother. It has been increasingly common for the judicial branch to ignore and run over both the legislative branch and the executive branch at the same time. It's ironic that many of the things in the news are similar to the list of reasons why we fought the Revolutionary War. Freedom of religion was at the top of that list. One can easily look back in history and see that many Evangelical Christian Faiths were hunted, persecuted, and even killed in various portions of the country that were governed by England, France, and Spain.

The founders would load their muskets if they saw what happened to what they fought for. I'm not suggesting another revolution, but I think that a Constitutional Convention is far past due.

Love In Christ,
Tom
