Rep. Steve King Intros Bill To Strip Federal Courts Of Powers Over Marriage

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has introduced a bill that would strip federals courts of the power to rule on marriage. His bill is titled the Restrain the Judges on Marriage Act of 2015. Via The Hill:
“For too long, federal courts have overstepped their constitutionally limited duty to interpret the Constitution.” King said in a news release. “Rather, federal courts have perverted the Constitution to make law and create constitutional rights to things such as privacy, birth control, and abortion. These Unenumerated, so-called constitutionally-protected rights were not envisioned by our Founding Fathers.” King’s bill strips way Article III of the Constitution, which gives federal courts the jurisdiction to hear or decide any question pertaining to the interpretation of, or the validity under the Constitution of, any type of marriage. The bill also prohibits federal funds from being used for any litigation in, or enforcement of any order or judgment by, any federal court.
Last year King declared that in 2000 years, no gay person has ever gone to heaven. The next day he said that leftists had "fabricated" the remark and that he stands by having said it. Yup.
