“Today’s vote (in Iowa) disrespects Americans across the country who want to protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman – and have done as much in the 31 states who have passed statewide referenda in favor of marriage. It will also require Americans in every state to subsidize homosexual couples by using tax dollars to provide them with federal benefits. Marriage is not some prize that liberals can award to a small, vocal and already well-off special interest group. Marriage between one man and one woman was created prior to the formation of any governments and is given benefits by governments because it uniquely contributes to a productive society.” – FRC president Tony Perkins.
As I mentioned earlier today in the post about the Senate Judiciary Committee which voted 10-8 to move the Respect For Marriage Act, to repeal DOMA that Perkin’s now echo’s what Texas GOP Rep John Cornyn’s argument was against SSM ” (that it will) require Americans in every state to subsidize homosexual couples by using tax dollars to provide them with federal benefits.”
Now that the religious arguments are failing apart and the tide is turning the cost to the country will be their next argument because hate never gives up.
