Sen. Ed Murray Going for the Brass Ring of Homosexual Marriage---Again

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
He has done it before, but this time there seems to be more confidence. After defeating R-71 and enshrining into law what they promised was "not gay marriage," I believe they called their bill that became law "everything but marriage," Senator Murray is reaching for the brass ring.

After Senator Ed Murray, Representative Jamie Pederson and other homosexual activists in the State Legislature got their Domestic Partnership bill passed into law, the one they claimed was not marriage and not related to marriage, they then admitted to the press that it was in effect the last step to homosexual marriage.

Homosexual activists are pursuing a calculated course of incrementalism, and in some cases deceit.

You may recall, The Seattle Times and other pro-homosexual activists and organizations called for the Legislature to "Give Them Marriage," in the days following the defeat of R-71.

Some evangelical leaders publicly conceded marriage to the homosexual activists, saying it was just a matter of time. We are victims of Post Modernism they say.

I do not believe a majority of Washingtonians want homosexual marriage. From Walla Walla to Port Angeles, from Vancouver to Spokane--in Yakima (and yes, Wapato) and the Kitsap Peninsula and the Puget Sound area, I'm talking to my own family members and thousands of others who believe as they do. There are many, I feel a majority, who will not support homosexual marriage.

Now Senator Murray is making his move. He introduced
SB 5793 on February 14---Valentines Day, in the latest attempt to push natural marriage off the cliff.

Yesterday, homosexual activist Representative Jim Moeller introduced a companion bill in the House of Representatives.
HB 1963.

This is the short overview of the bill :

2011 Senate Bill 5793 (Legalizing same-gender civil marriages)

Introduced by Sen. Ed Murray, (D-Seattle) (D) on February 14, 2011, to declare that it is the intent of this act to end discrimination in marriage based on gender and sexual orientation in Washington. The bill provides that, where necessary to implement the rights and responsibilities of spouses under the law, gender specific terms such as husband and wife shall be construed to be gender neutral.

Referred to the Senate Government Operations, Tribal Relations & Elections Committee on February 14, 2011.
This is the
text of the bill.

Senator Murray and his colleagues, including Governor Gregiore, are attempting to re-engineer and re-define the institution of natural marriage---a God ordained and socially accepted institution that has stood for more than 5000 years and is the model building block upon which every successful society and culture has been built in human history.

contact your senator and tell them you strongly oppose SB 5793.

If you get an email response from them, please forward it to me at .

Thank you.

It's important that state senators hear from a large number of citizens in their own districts and it's important they hear from us sooner, rather than later.

Be Prayerful. Be Discerning. Be Informed. Be Vocal.

  1. Again, identical bills have been introduced every year since 2007. If you like I can look up the bill numbers for each year.

    Yes, every year the legislature will be asked to allow marriage equality and eventually it will.

  2. I don't even feel like getting married until everyone is able to get married. It's so sad that there's discrimination in marriage still here in the 21st century. I mean 5,000 years of marriage? give me a break! A bunch of white law makers invented the thing and now their dangling it as a way to keep on top of a well-deserving portion of the population. Makes me sick!

  3. The R71 campaign assured us that the vote was about marriage,and every piece of R71 literature was directed at "saving marriage." So unless the R71 campaign was lying, I don't see how the legislature could now be considering a bill to pass something that already passed in 2009.

    Also, I am puzzled as to why hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren have not been "taught gay marriage" or "taught domestic partnerships." You would think that there would be thousands of complaints from WA parents by now, but as far as I know, there hasn't been a single one.

    The "save marriage" side keeps saying that this will be a dire consequence, but the only example they have is a single complaint about a single lesson taught by a single teacher in Massachusetts - 6 years ago.
