Stealth anti-marriage tricks

You are reading

Even as Senate Republicans appear to be failing in their efforts to
write discrimination into the Constitution, leaders of the House of
Representatives are gearing up to find alternative backdoor methods to
block marriage equality.

House Republican Majority leader Tom DeLay is considering two proposals
that take steps toward halting marriage equality.

One proposal would
block the District of Columbia from recognizing marriages of gay and lesbian couples married in other states. �The other would deny the
Supreme Court and all other federal courts of the ability to consider
any challenges to the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act.

Both these attempts are crude attempts to force marriage
discrimination. The House should reject any attempt to stop marriage

Take Action! Urge your representative to oppose stealthy attempts at
marriage discrimination.
