Washington D.C. Hiding From Public on Same-sex “Marriage”

While same-sex marriage is a political issue that crosses all socio-political boundaries, democrat leadership seems to have taken a particular interest in promoting the issue in the north eastern states and now in Washington D.C.

The District of Columbia Council has voted 12-1 to recognize homosexual “marriages” from states where homosexual marriage is now legal – Massachusetts, Iowa, Vermont and Connecticut.

The bill now goes to the U.S. House and U.S. Senate for their approval. If approved by both, it will then go to the president for his signature.  If Congress does not act on the bill by June 6, it automatically becomes law.

It appears that Democrats will not allow a vote on the bill.

Watching these kind of shenanigans go down, the question has to be asked, why play the shell game?  Why not go on the record for “equality” if that’s really what this is about?  Let’s have a debate!  Go on the record!  Stand up for what you believe in!

As Abraham Lincoln said:

“I freely acknowledge myself the servant of the people, according to the bond
of service — the United States Constitution; and that, as such,
I am responsible to them.”

If it’s not worth standing up for, it’s not worth believing.

See this from AFA:

What you can do:
1. Send an E-mail your representative and two senators today and tell them you want a recorded vote on the D.C. homosexual marriage bill. Tell them if no vote is allowed, then it is clear the Democratic Party is promoting homosexual marriage despite President Obama’s public announcement that he is opposed to homosexual marriage.
2. After you have sent your e-mail, make a phone call to your representative and senators to tell them that you want a recorded vote. The number to call is 202-224-3121.

    How the HECK can something become law if no action is taken? That’s just…WRONG. We’re darned if they do, we’re darned if they don’t!

    Do you even live in DC, Megan?

    The DC Council voted and weren’t shy about making their position known (darnit, but a 12-1 vote seems like pretty clear action).

    In any case, bb, in your first graf, it should be “democratic” (not “democrat”) …

    If, as you state, same-sex marriage is a political issue that crosses all socio-political boundaries, is it one that crosses party lines?

    If so, how about showing a little respect for my party and referring to us by our preferred and proper name.

    Democratic has a different meaning than Democrat. I know that Democrats would like to be Democratic, but if so, they ought to behave better.

    Democratic: characterized by or advocating or based upon the principles of democracy….Democracy? as in “Power to the People”? Yeah, that’s a hoot. That’s pretty much not happening here. If Democrats were interested in Democracy, they wouldn’t be rushing things through blindfolded.
