GOP bails out on defending marriage

The Republican leaders in the House of Representatives are no longer planning to defend traditional marriage at the federal level.

By their own admission in a case challenging the definition of ‚Äúspouse‚ÄĚ as applied to veterans‚Äô benefits, lawyers for the House Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group, or BLAG, controlled by House Republicans, announced Thursday they will ‚Äúno longer defend‚ÄĚ the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, in federal court.

Documents hosted by BuzzFeed in the case of McLaughlin v. Panetta reveal GOP House attorneys essentially believe the Supreme Court has settled the issue. ...

Must have been someone else you're remembering.

What is the equivalent of "civil magistrate" in the American system of govt? Perhaps if the terms are defined...?

More nonsense, confusion of Caesar with government. But it does ease the mind of thoughtfulness to have canned responses at the ready. Even Christians can be prone to seeking the easy way.

You, Mike, might very well think that. I do not.

God ordained the civil magistrate, such magistrates to be subject to him and rule the people for God's own glory and the public good.

If you believe government to be inherently evil, on what basis do you complain if those who govern promote evil?
Firstly, you might consider government led by the unregenerate, cannot help but be inherently evil. That's why there are laws to limit what govt can do.

Secondly, how about, cause it would be dumb to not complain of evil men promoting evil. If you believe what a murderer does is inherently evil, is it difficult to find basis to complain? What is govt evil but personal evil expanded with more power?

Ahh, thanks for the admonition. My post was completely, as they say, tongue in cheek. Trying to help brother Jim see the futility of his thinking. He is a great source of much helpful material here at SermonAudio but his political views need a little help, imho. I am sure he feels the same about my political views. But God bless you for your post it has great thought provoking statements.

So, whaddya think Jim, let us throw the whole corrupt bunch out of office, of course we mean all republicans, here the Supreme Court said DOMA was unconstitutional so they gave up trying to defend it and shifting the issue to state levels. Because we both know what this country needs is more liberal democrats in office because they can't be touched with corruption and only serve for the best intentions. Also, even though Paul touched on government matters in his epistles we want to make sure the pastors don't mention anything from the pulpit because....now where is that biblical mandate.....well it is not important, commenting on politics, unless it favors democrats, is a no no. Hope we came down on the correct side of everything,....WAIT, man I almost forgot, this is ALL the fault of G. W. Bush and his policies, the man is a disgrace to the presidency and his country. We sure are thankful that president Obama didn't have anything to do with the demise of DOMA.

Surprise, Surprise! The "Christian" "Democrats" has played the Evangelicals again! No telling whose going to bed with who in that Log Cabin Republican: GOP support for gay marriage is inevitable

I find it ridiculous, incredulous to call the GOP Christian, they are all about greed and power, q.v., The Record of Republican Corruption. Now does that make the Democrats the men in white hats, of course not. While one can see why there are groups e.g.,Why Are North Carolina Liberals So...Angry?. I would hope the leaders in such groups be they Republican, Democrat, or Independent will see that
The Inadequacy of Moralism. For pastors who want to dabble in politics keep your personal actions for Monday and keep politics out of your Sunday sermons
