A homosexual publication says attacks on marriage are expected soon in five states.
Bills that would legalize same-sex marriage are expected to be taken up by law makers in five states when the new sessions of the legislatures begin. In three of the states - New York, New Jersey and New Hampshire -LGBT rights groups say there is a strong indication they will be passed.
Two other states also are likely to have marriage equality bills: Rhode Island and Maryland.
A bill to allow same-sex marriage was filed in the Maryland legislature in January, but failed to gain traction. It is expected to be refiled in the next session, but its fate is unknown. Legislation is also expected in Rhode Island.
Pro-family folks in these states had better mobilize NOW if they want to prevent marriage from being counterfeited in their states.
In fact, they should not only work to counter these assaults, but move forward with marriage protection amendments such as Proposition 8 just passed in California.
The states in question do not have marriage protection amendments in their state constitutions, and most do not even have a Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to provide legal protection.
The number of states without marriage protection amendment is dwindling; with the recent passage of such amendments in California, Florida and Arizona, now 30 states have constitutionally protected the institution of marriage.
Homosexual activist Tim Gill and his allies have been busy in several of these states. The Gill Action Fund strategy works at a state level to get homosexual-friendly legislators elected to advance the homosexual agenda at the state level.
So far this agenda has mostly involved things like "restroom chaos" bills, "hate crime" laws and attempts to legislatively silence Christian criticism of homosexual behavior.
I will say one thing positive about this news: for once, it appears homosexual activists and their "useful idiots" are going about their attacks on marriage in the only manner suitable for our representative democracy.
Previous attempts to hijack marriage and force the concept of homosexual "marriage" on the people have always involved judicial activism with judges who acted like legislators and "created law" out of thin air.
But there's a reason they've gone the judicial route: legislators face re-election while judges usually do not.
And when given a choice, the people will almost never stand for the counterfeiting of society's most important institution: marriage.
