Knight: Repealing DOMA Would "Dump A Capitol Domeful Of Cowpies Right On The Institution Of Marriage"

Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union attacked Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the House sponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act which would repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act, for “destroying” the institution of marriage. In a column discussing the recent House vote to reaffirm “In God We Trust” as the nation’s motto, Knight blasted Nadler for criticizing the need to vote on the measure, as the congressman said it would “divert people’s attention from the real issues that we’re not dealing with,’ like unemployment.”

Knight asked, “If we’re supposed to be addressing ‘real issues,’ where is the evidence that in a time of massive unemployment and economic uncertainty, Americans are just itching to redefine marriage as two guys on a pink cake?” He went on to say that “the bizarrely titled Respect for Marriage Act, which would dump a Capitol Domeful of cowpies right on the institution of marriage” and argue that Democrats support marriage equality and secular government to buttress the “all-powerful state.”

Well, the idea of affirming In God We Trust was too much for Jerrold Nadler, the New York progressive who represents ACORN in the House of Representatives and also the socialist Working Families Party and Occupy Wall Street.



“This is simply an exercise in saying, ‘We're more religious than the other people,’” Nadler nattered sarcastically. ‘“We're more godly than the other people, and by the way, let's waste time and divert people's attention from the real issues that we're not dealing with,’ like unemployment.”

Well, okay. How about unemployment? Nadler reliably voted against the job creation bills that the House passed in recent months, all of which were aborted in Harry Reid’s Senate upon delivery.

And if we’re supposed to be addressing “real issues,” where is the evidence that in a time of massive unemployment and economic uncertainty, Americans are just itching to redefine marriage as two guys on a pink cake? Nadler is a chief sponsor of the bizarrely titled Respect for Marriage Act, which would dump a Capitol Domeful of cowpies right on the institution of marriage, destroying its real meaning.

It makes perfect sense that a leading progressive would hate the thought of honoring God while trashing the institution created by God as the fountainhead of families, churches and communities. Those things get in the way of the all-powerful state, which has a devil of a time creating the new socialist man while families, churches and communities are imbuing citizens with personal responsibility.
