Maine Becomes 31st State (31-0) Rejecting Homosexual Marriage

In a stunning rebuke by the citizens of Maine yesterday, the law passed by the Democratic-controlled Maine state legislature and signed into law by Democratic Governor, John Baldacci, to allow homosexuals to marry, was resoundingly defeated.  The American people continue to overrule their elected officials on this issue, time after time, and it seems these politicians never seem to learn the lesson.  

By an average of about 70%, voters in 31 states, including the liberal states of California, Hawaii, Oregon, and now Maine, have rejected homosexual marriage.  In the case of Maine, the Democratic-elected officials were determined to bypass their citizens and force such "marriages" upon the citizens of Maine.  The citizens rose up and voted a resounding NO!  

The institution of marriage predates authenticated recorded history.  The God of the Bible intended the institution of marriage to be between one man and one woman.  The American people have overwhelmingly rejected the expansion of marriage to include any other arrangement other than traditional marriage.   

It is time for the United States Congress to pass an amendment to the United States Constitution which would prohibit homosexual marriages in America once and for all.  There are two such amendment proposals in the House of Representatives including H.J. Res. 37 authored by Congressman Daniel Lungren, California Republican.  The other is H.J. Res. 50, introduced by Georgia Republican Paul Broun.   

After Congress passes an amendment to the U.S. Constitution (the president does not need to sign it,) legislatures in 38 states are required by the constitution to ratify the constitutional amendment.  Considering that the citizens in 31 states, so far, have now overwhelmingly rejected marriage between homosexuals, getting these 31 states and an additional 7 more states to ratify a federal marriage constitutional amendment is an achievable goal.
