Re: Same Sex Marriage in the District of Columbia


Dear Congressional Member:


We are opposed to granting the District of Columbia a vote in the United States House of Representatives because we are opposed to the granting of the right to same sex marriage point blank, as it would be in opposition to the laws of God.


DC Vote which you probably know is in fact a finger on the hand of the “Gay Lobby” in the District of Columbia where most of its leaders are Gay, Lesbian or Bi-Sexual overtly or covertly which was started by the well known bi-sexual, Joseph Sternlieb. The hidden agenda behind why DC Vote seeks a vote in the US House of Representatives is because they and their supporters, the “Gay Lobby” sees “this” vote as being paramount to ushering in GAY MARRIAGE in the District of Columbia.


This is not our word for it but the words of Mr. Richard Rosendall, VP for Political Affairs for the Gay, Lesbian Activist Alliance of Washington, DC, as he made this fact clear in the local newspaper known as Washington Metro Weekly in the March 15, 2007, edition when Rosendall is quoted as saying:


When will it be time to push a (gay)marriage bill in D.C.?


GLAA's legislative maven, Bob Summersgill, suggests prerequisites like these:


The Davis-Norton bill granting D.C. a full vote in the House.


This will still leave us unrepresented in the Senate, but will give us far more leverage than we have now.


Passage of budget autonomy, so that D.C.'s locally-funded budget is not subject to undemocratic congressional amendments. Passage of legislative autonomy, so that D.C.'s locally-passed laws are not subject to routine congressional review before taking effect.


Once several states (say six) have adopted same-sex marriage, Congress's meddling impulse might be tempered if D.C. follows (rather than leads) the trend.


The point is not to wait until there is no risk, but until we have a fighting chance.


If you are outraged at the second-class status of gay families, please work with GLAA, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and allies like D.C. Vote to win the next battles. Instead of looking for shortcuts or fighting one another, let's press ahead smartly together.


The District of Columbia per the gay publication The Advocate is now the USA’s third largest gay community in the United States per capita and growing as gays see DC as being the best place for achieving the goal of same sex marriage.



Please vote no to granting the District of Columbia a vote in the

United States House of Representatives!
