American Republican Plan To Void Gay Marriage

American Plan To Void Gay Marriage

20 November 2015

Over in the USA, four Republican Presidential candidates have signed a pledge to void the marriages of thousands of loving same-sex couples.

The National Organisation for Marriage (which was forced to disclose this week that it is secretly funded by the Catholic Church) asked all Republican candidates to pledge support for a new constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman – voiding the thousands of existing same-sex weddings across all 50 states.

It is also asking them to “prevent the promotion of a redefined version of marriage in public schools” – effectively de-facto banning teachings about same-sex marriage or same-sex couples.

The group also wants them to protect “the right of organisations and individuals” who disagree with same-sex marriage – permitting discrimination against same-sex couples.

Incredibly, despite the overtly homophobic measures proposed by the anti-gay group, four of the Republicans vying for the Presidential nomination actually signed the pledge.

Republican loony's, Rick Santorum, Senator Ted Cruz, Dr Ben Carson, and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal all agreed with the group’s mission to strip gay people of their basic rights to marriage and protection from discrimination.

All four have equally vile records of homophobia and in the past openly demonstrated hatred towards LGBTI folk everywhere.
