The devil has his tail in it, and it wouldn’t be him, if he didn’t show up sub specie boni, a variant of which is unleashing friendly or alleged friendly fire. On July 19, the US House passed the bill protecting LGBT+ “marriages” and the friendly fire, or presumed friendly fire, is the 47 Republican votes that added up to all the available Democratic votes. This is friendly fire, or alleged friendly fire, because the Republicans have long shown to be the party that defends non-negotiable principles. Or pretending well to do so. Or, better yet, that it is weighted down by infidels.
This sad mantra could be repeated now in the Senate, whose vote is essential to close the game. That is, to pass bill H.R. 8404, called the Respect for Marriage Act. Please note the insolence: an “Act respecting marriage” that intends to normalize, using the nuclear option, the idea that any union between any persons is marriage.
Now, if that bill is successfull, it will become a law abolishing math, astronomy and physics. Because if it passes in the Senate, that bill would force Mr. John and Mrs. Mary to say, and to say that they believe, that two plus two is, for example, square root of two elevated to the sixteenth power, that the Sun does not rise in the morning and that, if you want to, you can even walk through concrete walls. That law would therefore say that the spousal union and responsible commitment between two persons of different sexes, that is, belonging respectively to the only two sexes existing in nature, is an identical thing to the carnal union between two or more persons belonging both or all or in varying geometries to one of the only two existing sexes. But even a homosexual person can see the nonequivalence between these two things, and there is no need for an explanatory sketch.
The Respect for Marriage Act would, in fact, recuse H.R. 3396, called the Defense of Marriage Act., which, in 1996, saved mathematics, astronomy and physics, reaffirming what even a homosexual person sees: marriage is, by nature and not by someone’s arbitrary will, the spousal union and responsible commitment between two people belonging to the only two sexes in existence, one male and the other female. And it would have the effect of locking into a parliamentary law what was decided in 2015 by the Supreme Court’s ruling in James Obergefell, et al, Petitioners v. Richard Hodges, Director, Ohio Department of Health, et al, commonly known as “Obergefell vs. Hodges”, defined by Justice Antonin G. Scalia (1936-2016) as “a threat to U.S. democracy.” That is, the same effect that President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are asking Congress to produce in order to overcome the June 24 Supreme Court‘s ruling that ended the lie of abortion as a federal “right” guaranteed by the US Constitution.
Well, CNN announces that of the 50 Republican senators, 15 are undecided and 22 have not responded to their question. Quite serious. Because, if I were asked how I would vote on that bill, sitting in the Senate of the United States or of any other country that had elected me, I would not hesitate for a nanosecond to say that I would reject it with all strength and conviction I have, just like the 8 senators of the poll who chose immediately and dryly to reject it. The fact that 15 are undecided and 22 are not responding sends shivers down the spine. 15 plus 22 is 37. More than half of the Republican senators. An enormity and a scandal for the Republicans, even the mere fact that they are hanging and not responding.
To these 37 already outrageous senators are added five more. Five rotten apples who positively spoke in favor of the bill: Rob Portman, Susan Collins, Ron Johnson, Lisa Murkowski and Thom Tillis. It means that rotten apples are increasing. In the past, even in these same columns, I have called Collins and Murkowski rotten apples, adding that the general orientation of their colleagues often ended up nullifying their aims. But rotten apples have more than doubled. If the 15 undecided and 22 silent ones turn into as many “ayes” to the bill, the favorable votes would be 42. An entire rotten orchard and a disaster for the country.
When US citizens go to the polls on November 8 to renew the entire House and one-third of the Senate, let them remember well those who want to tamper with mathematics, astronomy and physics by decree.
