These are the times we live in, alas.
Because of course he did, that’s why. After all, nothing says “respect for marriage” quite like drag queens, no?
I swear, at this point it’s as if they just can’t help themselves anymore; they simply must—MUST—jab a thumb into the eye of all normalcy at every imaginable opportunity. It’s like a compulsion these days with these assholes, they couldn’t stop even if they wanted to. Which, they assuredly do NOT.
Both the House of Representatives and the Senate have greenlit the legislation, which enshrines same-sex marriage protections into federal law in accordance with the Supreme Court’s opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges. Democratic lawmakers recruited 39 Republicans in the lower chamber and 10 in the upper chamber to support the bill, which is expected to be signed into law on Tuesday.
Cummings shared a screenshot of the White House invitation on social media and expressed thankfulness toward the Biden administration.
“To be a non-binary drag artist invited to the White House is something I never imagined would happen,” the drag queen said. “Grateful doesn’t begin to express the emotions I feel.”
Same here, sicko, on both counts.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) remarked in a statement that he voted against a motion to advance the bill because its “religious liberty protections” were “severely anemic and largely illusory.” The lawmaker had expressed concern that religious individuals and organizations could be exposed to litigation and the loss of nonprofit status under the new law.
Biden nevertheless praised the final passage of the Respect for Marriage Act, saying that “millions of marriages and families” have been put at ease following the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade and other previous opinions purporting a constitutional right to abortion.
“On this day, Jill and I are thinking of the courageous couples and fiercely committed advocates who have fought for decades to secure nationwide marriage equality at the Supreme Court and in Congress,” he said. “While we are one step closer on our long journey to build a more perfect union, we must never stop fighting for full equality for LGBTQI+ Americans and all Americans.”
Because hey, what could possibly be more critical, more absolutely, positively vital, to the well-being of any conventional married couple and/or the institution of marriage itself than unfettered baby-murder and the promotion of sexual confusion and deviancy? The next bit is as predictable as yesterday’s sunrise.
Cummings also conducts activism on behalf of the “queer youth population” in New York City, according to Out. “I also think we need young people at the table. We need new, fresh voices,” Cummings continued.
Le sigh. Gee, bet you didn’t see that coming, now did ya?
