SC lawmakers introduce bill to define same-sex marriage as 'parody marriage'”

The bill, called the "Marriage and Constitution Restoration Act", seeks to make marriage only between men and women, and deem all others "parody marriages".

Despite the fact that the Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage was constitutionally legal, the SC representatives say the First Amendment has jurisdiction over which types of marriages the state can endorse, respect, and recognize-rather than the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which the justices focused on. In this case, they are trying to change the legal definition of the marriages of same-sex couples, from marriage, to "parody marriage".

The bill obviously runs afoul of the Obergefell v. Hodges decision, which required all states to recognize all marriages regardless of the genders of those involved.

"It's a faith-based belief that gay marriage is OK, and we can't have policy that puts religion over non-religion", Long said.

Josiah Magnuson, Bill Chumley, Steven Long, Mike Burns, John McCravy and Rick Martin are the six representatives behind the bill.

A near-identical bill was submitted in Wyoming, sponsored by GOP lawmakers Lars Lone and Roy Edwards.

Jeff March, the president of South Carolina Pride, told WACH: "Pure prejudice is what that is". As for civil unions, we believe the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment compels government to acknowledge homosexual, heterosexual or plural unions. Declaring same-sex couples' marriages "parody marriage" and refusing to recognize them is hardly "the same terms and conditions". "This issue has been settled by the United States Supreme Court".

So-called "no promo homo" laws are on the statue books in Alabama, Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas. Sevier previously sued states for the right to marry his laptop computer in protest of marriage equality. Those states have laws that undermine LGBT equality and decrease quality of life.

The states in the category include Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming. The vast majority of Americans today understand that this insane quilt of protections - and lack thereof - is wrong, impractical, and unacceptable.
