Chuck Hagel has accused six states of violating Federal law and spreading prejudice.
The “Federal law” is his own made-up belief in his own made-up authority to impose his made-up definition of marriage on states that don’t believe in his authority to overturn their state laws.
The “prejudice” is an insane thought control campaign where the US government is demanding that all Christians spit on the authority of King Jesus and the Bible, and pretend that men and women are interchangeable in marriage. This Orwellian re-definition of reality also affects all “traditionalist” people or anyone else who can tell the difference between men and women.
According to the New York Times, six states are,
refusing to comply with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s order that gay spouses of National Guard members be given the same federal marriage benefits as heterosexual spouses. Mr. Hagel’s decree, which applies to all branches of the military, followed the Supreme Court’s ruling in June that struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act that had prohibited the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.
While a majority of states ban same-sex marriages, most are not fighting the new policy. But Pentagon officials say that… Texas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and West Virginia have balked. Each has cited a conflict with state laws that do not recognize same-sex marriages. (A West Virginia official said, however, that the state intended to follow the directive.) While the president has the power to call National Guard units into federal service — and nearly all Guard funding comes from the federal government — the states say the units are state agencies that must abide by state laws.
It is obviously wrong that the National Guard is majority Federally funded. But it is, indeed, still under state laws. Furthermore, the states aren’t stopping anyone from getting their “treat-us-like-married-people” ID cards. The federal mandate is followed on federal bases where homosexual couples can get their (fictional) “spouse” IDs. They can get all their benefits. The inconvenience of driving to a Federal base to get one’s ID that register’s one as a “spouse” is being treated as some kind of treason against the Federal Government.
First world problems.
This is a miniscule refusal in response to a perverse and tyrannical scheme on the part of the Federal Empire, and yet they cannot overlook any remnant of states defying their usurped authority.
It is easy for mindless people to accuse Christians (and others) of prejudice for not caving to the oxymoron of homosexual “marriage,” but proponents of such “marriage” are the ones who have no basis for their dogma and cannot even explain themselves on even the basis of their own popular fictional narrative.
