Oklahoma Fights Back Gay Supremacists

The people of Oklahoma had enough. They want a state that follows traditional definition of marriage and are opposing unilateral decisions by some judges to impose their unpopular opinion on same-sex marriage.

Lawmakers can feel the rising emotion of the general public and compelled them to propose a legislative measure that punishes any local or state employee who issues marriage licenses to same-sex couples. the bill will be heading to a vote in the state House of Representatives after a committee convincingly approved the legislation a few days ago.

The bill is one of several in the Republican-dominated statehouse to impose restrictions on same-sex marriages that have been proposed after a U.S. federal judge last year ruled the state's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.

The bill called the "Preservation of Sovereignty and Marriage Act" prohibits taxpayer funds, including government salaries, to be used for any activity that supports same-sex marriage. It also says that those who issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples can be subject to removal from office.

The bill's author, Representative Sally Kern, a Republican, said the measure is a response to U.S. courts overstepping their authority by forcing Oklahoma to recognize gay marriage.

As expected, the very small, but loud, groups for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals (LGBT) will try to oppose the bill. It remains unclear how they can convince the majority to support their deviant and unnatural behavior.
