Theresa Santai-Gaffney , Schuylkill County Register of Wills, has not given up her efforts to challenge the decision of Judge John E. Jones III to legalize same-sex “marriage” in Pennsylvania. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide advocate for natural marriage, applauds and fully supports her efforts.
It’s again time to pray for the Romeike family who fled Germany with their children in order to freely homeschool them in the United States. They were originally granted temporary asylum by an immigration judge in 2010, but the Obama administration appealed that decision and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the immigration judge’s decision.
Saturday’s announcement by US Attorney General Eric Holder regarding same-sex so-called marriage further illustrates the Obama Administration’s attack on natural marriage and the effort to redefine that institution in all 50 states. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide advocate for natural one man one woman marriage, is appalled that the executive branch of the federal government continues to try to impose its views on those states which define marriage the way it has been defined since the founding of this nation.
Rep. Randy Weber (R-Texas) has introduced the State Marriage Defense Act (H.R. 3829) to help states which define marriage either through a Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) or Marriage Protection Amendment (MPA) defend that definition within their state’s borders.
The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide defender of natural one man one woman marriage, has warned for years of the danger of not passing a Marriage Protection Amendment. Using the June 26th US Supreme Court 5-4 decision to toss Section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act as a springboard, the ACLU has moved to challenge Pennsylvania’s own Defense of Marriage Act.
Next week the United States Supreme Court is expected to hand down two decisions that could change America forever. Those decisions are to decide the constitutionality of California voter-approved Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act. We, of course, have no idea how the decisions will come down. The uncertainty in itself is mind-boggling, but Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia warned in his dissent in the 2003 Lawrence v. Texas case, which struck down that state’s sodomy laws, that the Court’s decision would open the door to same-sex “marriage.” Now, fast forward ten years.
The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a broadcast decency advocate, is mostly pleased by the United States Supreme Court decision in the Federal Communications Commission v. Fox case handed down today upholding the federal broadcast decency law (18 USC 1464) including the “fleeting expletives” rule. As television programming aired over the people’s airwaves continues its assault on our senses the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) must do its part in enforcing the law.
