Open thread – right wing crybabies

Waaah. Too flippin’ bad, huh? They are ready to go after the “no” votes on the amendment. This is what they wanted.

Dr. Don Wildmon, founder and chairman of the American Family Association, says most members of the U.S. House of Representatives believe that homosexual marriage should be outlawed. Those who believe otherwise, he insists, need to be held to account. “We want to identify these 187 members of Congress who believe that homosexual marriage should be legal,” Wildmon says. “Every one of them will be running for re-election this fall,” he explains, “and we want to let their constituencies know how they voted.”

See the roll call vote on H.J.Res. 88

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council described today’s vote as a failure on the part of a House minority to do its duty by representing the American people. And just as happened in the Senate, he laments, just because the two-thirds majority needed for the amendment to go forward was not there, the House chose to “turn a deaf ear” to the wishes of the vast majority of those they are sworn to represent.

Let’s take a look at Freeperland…

This is absurd! Poll afer poll after polls tells you the public at LARGE doesn’t want GAY MARRIAGE!

This should be and will be dealt with on the state level, AND it can only help us in the election. And yes, this election IS that important. 4 posted on 07/18/2006 11:49:55 AM PDT by Darkwolf377

I have an idea. Let’s create a government for the people and by the people.

Well this can work another way. The House can get itself off the hook by saying let the states do it themselves–amend their own state constitutions. (local pols will look like the baddies to the gays and lesbians)

Wonder how much money has been raised by both sides on this issue? Really, how is this going to change the average American`s life?

O.K., gang, there’s another way to do this. Article V provides an alternative way to send a Constitutional Amendment to the States. If 2/3 of the State Legislatures pass a resolution favoring the creation of a Constitutional Convention, then the Congress must call one. Said Convention can then propose (by a 2/3 vote of the delegates voting by states) Constitutional amendments that are then forwarded to the States (bypassing the Congress) for affirmation by a 3/4 vote. There are already more than 2/3 of the states that have gay “marriage” bans.

Unbelievable! And these jerks say they represent the people. They’re an embarrassment.

My rep voted “Present”?! WTF does that mean? I’ll have to ask him.

It means he is a coward.

A Constitutional Convention is a bad idea… the convention won’t be limited to the Gay Marriage question… we’ll also have every left-wing, fuzzy-thinking, spendthrift, Commie, pinko liberal issue on the table. I shudder to think what might happen.

It won’t be dealt with at the state level if the Supreme Court decides to force it on everyone just like they did with Roe. In fact, unless we act, that’s what will happen, at least with the current Robed Rulers. You cannot read Lawrence honestly without knowing that. This is an amendment to curb government overreach by the judicial branch.

The problem is that no matter what states do, if the SCOTUS says equal protection covers gay marriage, that is it. The purpose of a constitutional amendment is to block the supremes from doing that. It would be preferable not to have an amendment and a conservative court.

I’d expect this from godless demoncrats but THIS MANY Republicans – appalls me to no end!

Melissa Bean (D-IL) voted against the ban even though She Represents the most Conservative district in Illinois. SHE IS TOAST!!!!

LOL..Harold Ford, Jr. voted for it. He must be running for another office. Don Imus and Chris Matthews are deeply saddened.

There must be a TON of gays in the House!!

The usual suspects, pantywastemarkkirk, littlerichboycharliebass, limpdickchrisshays, etc.

Gay Wanna-bes.

Interesting that Ohio’s Sherrod Brown (running against Mike DeWine for a senate seat) and Ted Strickland (running for governor in Ohio) were both MIA for the vote. Seems like a convenient way to avoid controversy.

But you know the STUPID party (GOP) won’t make this a campaign issue. They don’t like to talk about those on “controversial lifestyles{ for fear of being vilified. Too often the GOP has NO BACKBONE and this “big tent” crap fuels it.

David Dreier and Mary Bono go Rainbow. The rest of our California (R) contingent voted Yea. Of course, the California Dems all voted Nay.

The Log Cabin Republicans belongs to the LGBT community. A federal political action committee working to build new alliances in the gay and lesbian community in the Republican Party.
