Legislating “morality” in an open and free society has always been a slippery slope. And when a particular piece of legislation attempts to redefine the traditional union of “marriage” which has been the bedrock and the very fabric of America’s culture, then the vast majority of Americans need to make their voices heard.

Apparently the Supreme Courts ruling on gay marriage has had some unintended or perhaps intended consequences, and a seismic shift to our core principles and the redefining of “marriage”, has apparently encouraged Democrats in California to introduce a bill that would “ban” the words “husband” and “wife” from being used in federal law because they are “gendered terms” and discriminate against gay people.

And so by the convoluted and bizarre logic of these legislators, it is far better to “discriminate” against the vast majority of Americans, who believe in the traditional concept of marriage, rather than write legislation that is “ALL INCLUSIVE”!

The bill, introduced by Rep. Lois Capps, D-Calif, would introduce new “gender-neutral” terms such as “spouse” or “married couple.” While seeking to “ban” the term “husband” and “wife”.

“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.”

In essence what Rep. Capp is stating is that America is a “gender-neutral” society rather than what America actually is…a society that embraces traditional unions between a “man” and a “woman” and also between those of the “same sex”.

However “inclusiveness” isn’t what Rep. Capp and the other progressive Democrats are actually seeking within this legislation, what they’re seeking is a secular society void of religion. In that America is the only country in history to have defined itself as “Judeo-Christian” society. Only America has combined secular government with a society based on religious values.
