Ms. LaRue, your policy has lapsed

by Jeremy Hooper

   In a piece discussing the possibility that Jersey is soon to legalize same-sex marriage, the Concerned Women For America's Jan LaRue (pic.) says of some national lawmakers who haven't voted in favor of a federal marriage ban:

"Those in Congress who are excusing their failure to begin the amendment process until the federal DOMA is struck down remind me of the uninsured homeowner whose house is ablaze and he decides to call an insurance agent"

   After thinking about a burning house and then thinking about his own monogamous, marriage-deprived homosexual partnership, this writer (pic.) says:

"Except, Ms. LaRue, unlike a fire that ravishes a home, marriage-seeking homosexual couples are not, in fact, inflicting damage on anyone's life. Therefore, there is no need for any sort of insurance policy to help Americans recoup the 'losses' they'd sustain at the hand of marriage legalization. Those members of Congress who oppose amending our nation's most precious governing document in ways that would encourage inequality for gay folks are actually insuring their own legacies, so that when the chapter of future history textbooks titled "Early 21st Century Attempts to Divide The Nation" is studied by future generations, they won't be seen as someone who fanned the flames of bigotry. Now the job of those who are trying to spark equality's flame is to show these Congress members that it's not DOMA that makes constitutional marriage bans unnecessary, but rather fairness and decency that makes them UNBELIEVABLE!

Marriage is the insurance policy that protects loving couples and their families. Marriage bans do nothing more than leave a sizeable sect of the population vulnerable.
"

New Jersey -- Like a good neighbor, we hope you'll be there.
