Liberals everywhere have been rejoicing the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide last week, but they may have started celebrating too soon…
Just days after the controversial ruling, Republicans in the House of Representatives introduced a bill that will stop anyone from being discriminated against for their views on gay marriage.
Idaho representative and proud Tea Partier Raul Labrador introduced the bill, which is known as H.R. 2802. The bill states that it’s purpose is to “prevent discriminatory treatment of any person on the basis of views held with respect to marriage.”
According to Conservative Tribune, the bill is meant to protect the tax-exempt status of churches and organizations that wish to support traditional marriage by not performing same-sex unions.
The bill would forbid liberal politicians from trying to “alter in any way the Federal tax treatment of, or cause any tax, penalty, or payment to be assessed against, or deny, delay, or revoke an exemption from taxation under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.”
Other actions that the bill would define as discriminatory would be to “disallow a deduction for Federal tax purposes of any charitable contribution made to or by such person … withhold, reduce, exclude, terminate, or otherwise deny any Federal grant, contract, subcontract, cooperative agreement, loan, license, certification, accreditation, employment, or other similar position or status from or to such person … withhold, reduce, exclude, terminate, or otherwise deny any benefit under a Federal benefit program from or to such person; or … otherwise discriminate against such person.”
This bill could ensure that churches are free to refuse to perform gay weddings. If liberals REALLY want equal rights for all, they won’t be disapproving of this bill…
