Liberals attack climate change deniers as being anti-science. Agreed.
I as a liberal wonder how we can deny that the only relationship that can produce offspring is more important than the others.  Science teaches us only 1 man + 1 woman = 3 people.

We need more Democrats against gay marriage

2016: Dems can win right now

 If Democrats are smart they will win the 2016 Presidential election in the next 6 months.  Here's how:

1. Let everyone know and get used to the fact that a (white)  female will lead the Democratic ticket
-whether it's:

Hillary Clinton
Elizabeth Warren
Amy Klobochauh
Claire Mccaskil
Barbara Boxer
Kirsten Gillibrand

2. Further that it is likely that the VP choice will also be a woman- see the same list above

3.  President Obama sign as expansive an executive order on Immigration that can be defended

4.  Implement Obamacare well and get as many people signed up as possible

5.  Defend President Obama personally and professionally in a positive way.  That means not just responding to charges but asserting a positive/true account of his historic Presidency from turning around from the Great Recession, saving the Auto industry,  saving our banking system, Obamacare, eliminating Bin Laden, and more...

---

At the end of the day, politics is about demographics and personal interest.  White women will want to see themselves in power.  Latinos will need to vote Democrat to protect the EO and push for permanent legislation, Millions will want to protect their healthcare, and African Americans will want to rally to support the President's legacy.

It's important to advance the positive narrative of the Obama years now because as in 2010 and 2014, otherwise Republicans will lie their way into power.

Don't get me wrong, I would love to see a strong agenda for 2016:

-criminal justice reform
-winding down current military tours
-fix Obamacare to make it work better
-major tax reform

But it's not necessary or even wise to ignore the structural reality that can be set up.

New Republican Congress should propose Federal Marriage Amendment

I once again supported the Democrats in the 2014 Mid-terms because I am and always will be a yellow dog Democrat.  I detest these swing voters who go back and forth between parties in an incoherent way.  Also I'm not fond of party-switchers unless it is a real change rather than the popular thing to do or because one party or another "puts the people first".  So this was another tough election night for me, worst than 2010 because there really wasn't a silver lining like Scott Walker losing or Dems keeping the Senate.

That said, while I disagree with the new majority in that I support Obamacare, I support increased federal spending, increasing the minimum wage, reforming our voting to include more people, and immigration reform;

I hope Republicans attack this war on marriage with the same vigor.  Unfortunately, they don't talk about it at all.  That always makes me wonder if they are secretly for the gay agenda?

Propose and pass a Federal Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution!

So we can stop the nonsense that has been coming from our courts especially the Supreme Court.

It is ridiculous that the Scotus ruled there is no rational reason to define marriage as one man and one woman.  So we've gone from the gay rights movement saying in 1996 that there's no threat to marriage as a reason to oppose a FMA to only a crazy bigot would oppose gay marriage in less than a generation.  Unbelievable.

Well I hope the Republicans who've shown an amazing ability to ignore the media and short-term politics before to do what's right and vote to restore marriage repeatedly until it wins.

A fallback position could be to propose an amendment saying states can't be forced to accepte other state's or federal defintion.  Then maybe claw back little by little.

This blog is dedicated to Democrats against Gay Marriage.  You can google my many articles.  But right now the party is intolerant of diversity of opinion on this topic.

So it's left to others to show us the way.
