DC COUNCIL FLOUTS CONGRESS AND CITIZENS AND FORCES HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE ON ENTIRE CITY

The city council and the local District of Columbia has refused to allow a referendum on the topic but instead has imposed same sex marriage on the entire population of the city.

The Congress refuses to allow a vote to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act. Pro-family groups will file suit to protect citizens from both a local government and national government that refuses public referendum and flouts laws passed to protect traditional marriage.

From the CBN News: History professor Nancy F. Cott, who has researched legal institutions and marriage in the U.S., was also leery of the new law, The Harvard Crimson reported.

"What is curious about [the ruling] is that this has been done under a Congress still in support of the Defense of Marriage Act," Cott told the Crimson. "D.C. is not a state, it is a federal territory, which means there is a direct conflict between what the D.C. standard is and what federal law is."


Lawmakers or judges in five states and D.C. have now approved homosexual marriage. But in the 31 states where it's been put to a vote of the people, it's been rejected every time.
