U.S. House lawmaker vows to introduce constitutional ban on gay marriage

Thursday, June 27, 2013

TOPEKA, Kansas — U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas vowed Wednesday to introduce a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage across the nation, blasting the U.S. Supreme Court rulings in two same-sex marriage cases.

“These unelected judges have allowed the desires of adults to trump the needs of children,” said Huelskamp.

U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas)

The Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), that denies federal benefits to legally married gay couples. It also cleared the way for same-sex marriage in California, though the high court said nothing about gay marriage bans in other states.

“Five activist justices have short-circuited the democratic process,” he said, in a statement posted on his website. “This radical usurpation of legislative and popular authority will not end the debate over marriage in this country. Congress clearly must respond to these bad decisions.”

“As a result, I plan to introduce the Federal Marriage Amendment (FMA) to amend the United States Constitution to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman,” Huelskamp announced.

The last Congressional vote to take place on a proposed federal marriage amendment occurred in the U.S. House in 2006, when the Amendment failed 236 yea to 187 nay votes, falling short of the 290 yea votes required for passage in that body.

Observers say Huelskamp’s bill would go nowhere, as he would need the support of more than 50 House Democrats, and the Democratic-controlled U.S. Senate.

Huelskamp has previously proposed legislation to prohibit gay and lesbian service members from marrying on U.S. military bases, add an amendment to a Commerce-Justice-Science appropriations bill to reaffirm DOMA, and denounced a lesbian couple’s commitment ceremony held at a U.S. Army chapel.

  23. Okay, so they’re pissing their pants in republicanland, so rather than getting over their cheap selves and accepting that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is a violation of the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of ‘equal protection,’ they’ve decided that it is in the best interest of this Nation to waste billions more in tax dollars to chase the absurd notion that they can convince the legislatures of at least two thirds of the states and both houses of Congress, in order to pass a sweeping anti-gay Constitutional Amendment?

    Yeah……good luck with that, fucktards.

Plus even if he got the leadership in the house to back him the senate is going to laugh and throw this right back in his face and then if it got past the senate if it would POTUS would toss it back and refuse to sign the law. This jackass is wasting our tax dollars why are the American people allowing this dumbass to be allowed to make stupid laws like this.

    Posted on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 6:11pm
  57. Good luck with that, douchebucket. You need 2/3 of both houses of Congress, *and* 38 state legislatures to ratify. 13 states have already implemented marriage equality. Do the f*cking math.

    Posted on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 6:11pm
  58. Let’s see. What is the path to add a constitutional amendment?
    2/3 of the House has to pass it. Not happening.
    2/3 of the Senate needs to pass it. Not happening.
    The President has to sign it. Not happening.
    38 states have to ratify it. Not happening.
    Also, it would help if the amendment you are proposing were constitutional in itself. Yesterday, the SCOTUS ruling has set a precedent that will ultimately lead to state bans on same-sex marriage being ruled unconstitutional.
    So basically, this is an effort to court the evangelical vote in your district, at the expense of taxpayer dollars. A waste of money from the “fiscally responsible” congressman.

  97. I don’t understand why people think that banning gay marriage is just. So what if the word marriage was in the bible, so were a lot of things about how women were property and how they should be killed for stepping out of line. Unless the House is planning to impose a law that marriage is only recognized when performed in a church by a member of clergy, which would of course infringe upon so many of our inalienable rights, than this is just another display of a political figure trying to enforce their beliefs on others. Sorry to rant but I feel that too many of the political figures in this country are trying to impose their religious beliefs upon a people they are too close minded to realize are human and deserve the same rights as everyone else.
