Delaware’s Homosexual Civil Union Bill Is Anti Civil Rights

    Let me start by pointing out that it was the homosexual activist, that were pushing for the passage of the civil union bill  in Delaware, that first made the argument that it was akin to the black civil rights movement of the sixties.

  Personally I don’t see the comparison of the two.

  If however the idea was to pass a bill that would allow civil unions for those who wish to join into an arrangement that is similar to marriage, why then did those who sponsored the bill in the General Assembly, craft it in such a way as to exclude all people except for homosexuals?

  This bill was sold as being a way to be more inclusive. Problem is, the bill actually excludes more people than it includes. With this bill heterosexuals will be barred from joining into civil unions. Why?

  Why has the Delaware General Assembly chosen this path? An amendment was put forth to allow heterosexuals to join in civil unions, and was voted down by the supporters of the original bill. Again, why?

  I believe that to have allowed heterosexuals to be included in the bill would have thrown a monkey wrench into the plans of the radicalized homosexual community and their supporters within the General Assembly.

  I believe they intentionally excluded anyone but homosexuals. I believe that they want to have grounds to bring a law suit of discrimination against the state of Delaware using Delaware’s own homosexual antidiscrimination law and the U.S. Constitution.

  Remember that the need for this bill was sold as a civil rights issue. The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is very clear on matters of civil rights.

  It clearly states in section one of the 14th Amendment;

” 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

   I would draw special attention to the last line of this section; ” nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

  Now if the Delaware civil union bill clearly excludes heterosexuals from being able to join into a civil union, it would seem as if, this flies in the face of the 14th Amendment and its intentions.

  This Delaware law actually creates a separate class of people and bestowed upon them a special protection under the law. How can this be constitutional?

  Also as I have listened to the coverage of the signing of this bill by Governor Markell. All I have heard is that this bill creates an environment, where homosexuals can enter into civil unions that will afford them all of the same rights and benefits of heterosexual marriages.

    Let’s review. The people pushing for this bill likened it to the black civil rights movement. Yet they chose to exclude everyone but homosexuals. They now state that this bill has created civil unions that are like heterosexual marriages in every way, except that they are between same-sex partners.

  Didn’t we learn in the sixties that ” separate but equal” was unacceptable?  Isn’t creating a separate class of people and special protection under the law for them counter to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution? Of course we did, and of course it is.

  That is why I believe this bill was intentionally crafted in this way. The radicalized homosexual community can now come back and state that the bill they pushed for, is actually unfair, due to the fact that, while it creates a “separate but equal” situation. It does not create an equal situation. They will then push for their next step, which is having the joining of same-sex couples designated as a quote un-quote, “marriage” .

  This bill does not take effect until January of 20112. I believe that in that time we should be working to have this law repealed based on the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. If the law does not include all people then it is unconstitutional.

  Now of course some will try to make the argument that heterosexuals need not be included because they can already be “married”.  But under this law no one but homosexuals can enter into a civil union. If we are going to fight people who are playing word games to further their agenda, we had better learn to play word games also.
