Proposed Law Would Strip Words ‘Husband’ and ‘Wife’ from Federal Code

Last week, Rep. Lois Capps (D-Calif.) introduced a bill that would remove the words “husband” and “wife” from the language used in federal law – a move that had drawn ire from faith leaders and family advocacy groups that see this legislation as expected fallout from the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in June that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry.

“It is as if a collective madness has settled over our nation's elite and they are trying hard to bring everyone under the same cloud of confusion,” Bishop E.W. Jackson, president of STAND (Staying True to America’s National Destiny), told “They can change 1,000 laws and 10,000 dictionaries.

“Marriage was, is and always will be only a union between one man and one woman,” Jackson said. “If the emperor has no clothes, it matters not that the whole world compliments him on his outfit.

“Perceptions change, but reality remains the same,” he added. “I will oppose any effort to sanitize our legal system of the words husband and wife.”

“Redefining the terminology in marriage now of ‘husband and wife’ proves that the gay lobby is only out to completely destroy marriage between one (naturally born) man and one (naturally born) woman,” Sam Rohrer, president of the American Pastors Network, told “If everything that marriage represents is eliminated, including the language, why did they not just settle for civil unions?

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of Ingsoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible. It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought— that is, a thought diverging from the principles of Ingsoc— should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words. Its vocabulary was so constructed as to give exact and often very subtle expression to every meaning that a Party member could properly wish to express, while excluding all other meanings and also the possibility of arriving at them by indirect methods. This was done partly by the invention of new words, but chiefly by eliminating undesirable words and by stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meanings, and so far as possible of all secondary meanings whatever. To give a single example. The word free still existed in Newspeak, but it could only be used in such statements as ‘This dog is free from lice’ or ‘This field is free from weeds’. It could not be used in its old sense of ‘politically free’ or ‘intellectually free’, since political and intellectual freedom no longer existed even as concepts, and were therefore of necessity nameless. Quite apart from the suppression of definitely heretical words, reduction of vocabulary was regarded as an end in itself, and no word that could be dispensed with was allowed to survive. Newspeak was designed not to extend but to diminish the range of thought, and this purpose was indirectly assisted by cutting the choice of words down to a minimum.

It doesn't matter what you do it will never be enough to appease the progressives who with to recreate society in their own image. Somewhere along the line has to be a change to far where the majority of unindoctrinated people stand up in force and say no more. That day becomes harder as so many more are seduced by the indoctrination of the leftist progressives. Until we get rid of university tenure and exterminate groupthink to allow free minds to develop and challenge the orthodoxy taught these days society will slide in to decay and dysfunction as seen on the news every night where anyone who has an independent thought is howled down by the group think zombies. Until we get rid of the trade unions as they exist with their prohibitive demands that crush production and development in today's society in order to rort and monopolise industries while producing corrupt candidates for political office. People wonder why western society is collapsing like the Roman Empire. The Green's global warming scam was the canary in the coal mine. Removing the terms 'husband' and 'wife' is the icing on the cake for seeking to overturn society.

Wow, I didn't think that Luke would ever quote a liberal socialist (Orwell) to support his arguments.

Luke just grabs randomly at any straws to justify his prejudices (often to build a "straw-man" argument).
