On this episode of “The Federalist Radio Hour,” Federalist Senior Editor and RightForge Co-Founder Christopher Bedford joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss why 47 Republicans in the House of Representatives voted to codify same-sex marriage, how the Supreme Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges decision ushered in a new era of cultural battles, and why Republicans on Capitol Hill should speak up about the importance of marriage and family.

    I’m not sure Emily understands why government got involved in marriage. I’m no expert,  but it started with easier recourse against deadbeat dads. There are other reasons.

    The mistake was made when they let them say that homosexual “marriage” and heterosexual marriage are the same thing. They aren’t, particularly with respect to children but also in other ways. The podcast referenced the most politically incorrect reason which I will leave it to the reader to listen for. lol It was completely illogical and unnecessary for the state to recognize them as the same thing.

    The point of marriage is to procreate W-2 slaves to keep Medicare solvent. Comrades should have three W-2 slaves for the state.

    I have read compelling articles about how this stuff legally opens up forcing the state to recognize polygamist households. Nothing has happened so far, but if attitudes are changing about this it might become a big deal pretty soon. The foresight on this stuff has been absolutely terrible.

    The other thing is, can you argue with the social dynamics they describe that started with the state endorsement of homosexual marriage? Maybe you can.
