Republican Committee Rejects Resolution Encouraging Opposition To Gay Marriage Ruling

The Republican National Committee (RNC) on Wednesday rejected a resolution encouraging Congress and states to approve legislation aimed at undermining the Supreme Court’s ruling striking down gay marriage bans in all 50 states.

According to Time, the resolution, introduced by Louisiana national committeeman Ross Little, Jr., failed to gain sufficient support to clear the RNC’s resolutions committee. The committee recommends resolutions to the full 168-member party governing body. An unlikely possibility is the direct introduction of the resolution during Friday’s general session.

A second resolution introduced by Michigan national committeeman Dave Agema sought to encourage “schools that are teaching the homosexual lifestyle in their sexual education class also include the harmful physical aspects of the lifestyle.”

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has publicly called on Agema to resign over racist and homophobic remarks. Agema landed in hot water after he promoted on social media an article asserting that part of the “homosexual agenda is to get the public to affirm their filthy lifestyle” He refused to back down and called the article “common sense.”

A resolution calling for the GOP to respect differing opinions on the high court’s ruling among Republican presidential candidates also failed to clear the resolutions committee.
