After NC, Several Measures Are Being Prepared

HR 2802
Everything is falling place now and the people are fighting back against attempts by lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders to penetrate the fabric of morality and impose their homofascist form of government.

After the stand of North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, and other state legislatures, members of the federal House of Representatives is now weighing in with their own proposed legislation and sound rationale for it. The bills' sponsors declare that it is about the "freedom of religion" and "religious liberty" guaranteed in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

H.R. 2802, sponsored by Raul Labrador of Idaho and co-sponsored by 167 of his Republican colleagues along with sole Democrat Daniel Lipinski of Illinois, is subtitled "A Bill to prevent discriminatory treatment on any person on the basis of views held with respect to marriage," has the short title of the "First Amendment Defense Act," or FADA.

The bill proposes that "the Federal Government shall not take any discriminatory action against a person, wholly or partially on the basis that such person believes or acts in accordance with a religious belief or moral conviction that marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman, or that sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage."

To add teeth into the measure, many of the religious groups and people who seek to be exempt from treating gay couples equally are recipients of federal funding for one program or another. In other words, the federal government collects taxes from everyone, and then distributes those monies – including to those who want an exemption from the fair treatment of those gay and lesbian citizens who have paid those taxes.
