Kansas Congressman Tim Huelskamp Introduces Resolution; Americans Can Encourage Representatives to Co-Sponsor
The traditional definition of marriage has certainly taken a hit over the
past few weeks, but there is hope as a federal Marriage Protection Amendment
defining marriage in American as between one man and one woman is in the works.
Congressman Tim Huelskamp of Kansas has introduced the Marriage Protection
Amendment (H.J. RES. 51), an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would make
marriage legal only between a man and a woman.
“Many Americans haven’t heard about this encouraging development
because the liberal media opposes it and therefore simply refuses to report on
it,” said American Family Association President Tim Wildmon. “If citizens don’t
know about it, they can’t act on it, so we’re hoping to encourage Americans to
take action so this amendment to protect marriage will pass.”
The amendment states, “Marriage in the United States shall consist only of
the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution
of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal
incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and
“The Supreme Court has opened the door for homosexual marriage in our
country,” Wildmon continued. “The recent rulings on DOMA and Prop 8 have
emboldened gay activists to work even harder. A federal Marriage
Amendment will finally put an end to activist judges tampering with the will of
the people. Rep. Huelskamp needs co-sponsors for H.J. RES. 51. We encourage
Americans to contact their representatives and ask them to co-sponsor the
resolution. Homosexual activists are determined to force homosexual marriage on
America by using activist liberal judges, like those on the Supreme Court.
“The time has come for Congressmen to go on the record and take a
public stand. By signing on as co-sponsors to HJR 51, these lawmakers will
make it crystal clear to their constituents what they really believe about
Wildmon suggests several ways Americans can take action on
the proposed federal marriage amendment:
an e-mail to representatives asking them to co-sponsor H.J. RES. 51.
