Congress to Act on Moral Issues this Week

Social conservatives are hopeful that the upcoming week will produce several victories in both the House and Senate.

The House this week will likely pass HR Res 88, the Marriage Protection Amendment, defining marriage to be between a man and a woman.

The Pledge Protection Act will also be voted upon in the House. It is also likely to pass.

I support the Child Custody Protection Act which, if passed, will make it a federal offense to transport a minor across state lines for an abortion to avoid parental involvement laws in the originating state. This is important legislation and will hopefully pass in the Senate this week.

Senator Rick Santorum's two bill regarding stem cell research will be voted upon in the Senate this week. One bill, the Fetus Farming Prohibition Act, will 'expand current prohibitions on fetal tissue of aborted babies to also prevent researchers from obtaining fetal tissue if they know the pregnancy was initiated for the purpose of donating the fetal tissue after an abortion.' I support S.3504.

Senator Santorum's second bill, S. 2754, Alternative Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapies Enhancement Act, to be voted upon this week increases funding for research on pluriporten stem cells, including adult stem cells which--unlike embryonic stem cell--have already led to major advances in research. I also support S. 2754.

The Senate will vote on H.R. 810, Expanding Taxpayer Funding of Embryonic Stem Cell Research. I agree with the President that embryonic stem cell research ends of the life of a baby after conception--this is a form of abortion and should not receive taxpayer funding. I oppose HR 810.

The Republicans have failed the conservative movement.

They must be voted out of power.

Not to nitpick, but I just read your post about not voting and find your views here... a little bit at odds with one another. State-licensed marriage is a bastardization of God's plan and anything that is not done according to God's plan is wrong. So... are you willing to legislate such things as the biblibcal notion of patriarchy, submission of the wife, husband's Christ-like sacrifice for his family, etc.? How about conform all divorce laws to the exact biblical standards? Would you be willing to prosecute everyone who divorces without a biblically-sound reason and then remarries to be prosecuted under Mosaic Law-like standards for adultery?

What we have today is so far away from God's plan that to call it a civil union would be euphemistic.
Mike Again, hi.

Let me see if I understand your comment; because marriage has been so distorted, then who cares how American defines it?

I care.
Actually, what I was getting at is that if you enter the legal realm and create a definition of marriage that isn't 100% inline with the Bible, what you have done is tried to rewrite what God has created. Hence why I am completely against democratic government having power over marriage. I prefer the "dictatorship" of biblical law on such matters.

Since our version of marriage isn't just a distortion, but an outright abomination, I could care less what happens to the American **legal** institution of marriage. Anyone who abides by the secular institution will be sinning in the eyes of God because it is very permissive of sin.
