“Panther” from the comments thread: “The Supreme Court did the right thing in overturning Roe v. Wade. Clarence Thomas did the right thing. His opinion was brilliant. And he did it because he knew what would lie ahead. The groomer controlled House saw this and used codification to head off homosexual marriage at the pass. But the sad part about this are the 47 cowards who call themselves Republicans.
They may well be in that party, but they’re definitely not conservatives. They sold us out again. Why? Because the groomers worded the bill very craftily, which is what the devil does. He’s very subtle and crafty. They included in there interracial marriage. And the cowards didn’t want to be perceived as racists. And, of course, this bill has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with allowing sexual deviants to marry each other.
This is nothing but destroying God’s order of things. Which is why it’s of the devil. The devil wants to overturn everything God did. He is the exact opposite of God. Do not, and again I say, DO NOT trust a “red wave” in November to fix this sin sick country. Even if you don’t believe in God, do not think the republicans will swoop in and save the day. They will not. These 47 traitors to decency, or most of them, will still be there after November.
They will do nothing because in order to do anything worthwhile in getting rid of the evil agenda of the Biden administration, they will have to shut down the government. And they won’t do that. So, “red wave” or not, things are just going to get worse.
Because, whether you believe it or not, God told us this in His Word. Evil must be purged. And if the Christians in this country won’t do it, God will. [end]
Two moms / two dads conundrums. Much too easy to succumb to evil.

On Tuesday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that would formally repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and codify a 2015 Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage into federal law.
Axios reports that the bill, the Respect for Marriage Act, passed with 267 votes in favor and 157 votes against, with 47 Republicans joining every Democrat in support. The legislation is widely seen as a response to the Supreme Court’s latest wave of rulings in favor of the Constitution, which largely overturned numerous liberal policies on such issues as gun control and abortion.
Among the Republicans who voted in favor are House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry (R-Penn.), and NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer (R-Minn.). However, the bill was opposed by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), and House leadership ultimately did not tell members of the Republican caucus how to vote on the bill.
The bill was introduced on Monday by a group of top Democrats from the House and Senate, as well as Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine), the sole Republican sponsor. In addition to declaring that same-sex marriage is a Constitutional “right,” the bill also codifies interracial marriage into federal law.
“As this Court may take aim at other fundamental rights, we cannot sit idly by as the hard-earned gains of the Equality movement are systematically eroded,” said House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) on Monday. “If Justice Thomas’ concurrence teaches anything, it’s that we cannot let your guard down or the rights and freedoms that we have come to cherish will vanish into a cloud of radical ideology and dubious legal reasoning.”
Nadler was referencing language written by Justice Clarence Thomas in his concurring opinion in the decision of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the landmark ruling which overturned both Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, ultimately returning the matter of abortion back to the individual states. In his opinion, Thomas explicitly mentioned the 2015 case of Obergefell v. Hodges, the case which legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, as one of the cases that the court’s new conservative majority may have to revisit in the future.
The unusually high level of Republican support for the bill has led to speculation that the legislation could see the required minimum of 10 Republicans in the Senate vote in favor as well, which would be enough to overcome any potential filibuster by opponents of the bill.[end]

Christian culture is the basis of western civilization. You don’t abolish marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman without massive consequences, nor bad consequences. Having politics founded on Christian culture was and is immensely good.
The give-and-take and devotion of a husband and wife as described in the New Testament is simply the best foundation for raising families and establishing stable communities. It has value both in the Church and in secular society. The cultural drift that muddied that understanding of what marriage was is not the problem of “dogma,” and to whatever extent the courts’ legal definition of the term meant, it was more incumbent on them to clarify their terms, not pretend we’re all reading from the same malleable dictionary in agreement.
If parents deem it good to teach their children that the Christian God created the universe, it is their right to do so; public school teachers must respect that other students may have families that believe in other deities or none at all. Hence, no teaching theology unless it’s in the sense of history or comparative religions.
Evolution is not a religion in any sense; it’s the best supported scientific theory regarding the development of life on Earth. It notably doesn’t address the origin of life. It’s entirely appropriate to teach in biology classes.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald John Trump – MAGA! KAG!
