In an interview with the Family Research Council’s Craig James yesterday, Rep. Randy Weber, R-Tex., urged Americans to organize to stop marriage equality rulings from taking effect in their states.
Weber, who was on “Washington Watch” promoting a bill he wrote that would make it harder for the federal government to recognize same-sex marriages, told James that Americans who oppose marriage equality should urge their state legislatures, county commissions and city councils to “pass resolutions that say, ‘Look, we support the traditional view of marriage, one man and one woman for life.’”
If this happens, he said, “maybe that will be a groundswell where people can get behind this and say, ‘Look, we’re tired of activist judges just systematically destroying the foundation of the family by throwing out a lot of these laws that people have voted for.’”
“You’ve got to be watching the absolute insanity out of some of these judges across the country, especially what’s happening in Alabama where just the turmoil created by the Windsor case, the Supreme Court striking down that part of the Windsor case, has been unbelievable,” Weber said. “They have just thrown the entire country, in my opinion, into turmoil with a lot of these judges saying, ‘Well, it’s a right, the people of those states cannot choose what they want their state to look like.’”
