Lawmaker: Congress can halt same-sex ‘marriage’ in tracks

‘It would make Obergefell a decision that was never enforced at the federal level’

A state lawmaker with expertise in constitutional issues says there’s a strategy that would allow Congress to halt the legalization of same-sex “marriage” by the U.S. Supreme Court in its tracks.

The court’s 5-4 ruling Friday abolished all state laws limiting marriage to one man and one woman.

But Virginia Delegate Robert G. Marshall contends Congress “can immediately take action on a strategy to block the Obama administration’s implementation of the court’s decision through the use of riders to appropriations bills which will come before Congress this summer and fall.”

“Suggested by James Madison, both liberals and conservatives have successfully used this strategy to change public policy over the past 50 years,” he wrote. “This approach is constitutional. It can be set in motion within days, if not on the very day of a Supreme Court decision. … And, if pursued by defenders of real marriage, this approach will require every 2016 congressional and presidential candidate to take a position on marriage.”
