Now Democrats Want to Ban Words ‘Husband’ and ‘Wife’–No, We Are Serious
Now that compulsory gay marriage is the law of the land thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court, liberals are reaching out from that decision to see where else they can force the gay lobby’s agenda on the country. Next up is a war against the words “husband” and “wife” because they are somehow “anti-gay.” California Congresscritter Lois Capps is now leading the charge to try to get the two words expunged from federal law.
You read that right. More than two dozen Democrats have now launched a war against the words “husband” and “wife.”
Those “gendered terms” would be replaced by “gender-neutral” words like “spouse” or “married couple,” according to the bill from Rep. Lois Capps, D-Calif.
“The Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act recognizes that the words in our laws have meaning and can continue to reflect prejudice and discrimination even when rendered null by our highest courts,” Capps said. “Our values as a country are reflected in our laws. I authored this bill because it is imperative that our federal code reflect the equality of all marriages.”
The Supreme Court ruled in June that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution means all states have to license same-sex marriages, a ruling that effectively ended the same-sex marriage debate in America. Capps said her bill was aimed at taking the next step, which is to ensure the United States Code “reflects the equality of all marriages.”
She said her bill would also have other benefits if it became law. In one example, she noted that U.S. law says it’s illegal to threaten the president’s wife, but says nothing about the president’s husband.
“Capps’ bill would update the code to make it illegal to threaten the president’s spouse,” her office said.
The country has descended into farce.
