Peroutka: No to Homosexual Marriage or Civil Unions and No to the Federal Marriage Amendment

Jul 13, 2004, 01:00 ET from Peroutka 2004

    PASADENA, Md., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- "I do not support sodomy-based
 anything no matter what form it takes," said Michael A. Peroutka, Constitution
 Party presidential candidate, in reference to the debate in the U.S. Senate
 over the Federal Marriage Amendment.  "Whether it is in the form of a so-
 called 'marriage,' civil union or other euphemism, it is a violation of law of
 nature, therefore it is wrong and not something that should be recognized as
 legitimate by the federal government."
     Peroutka stated his belief that the Federal Marriage Amendment, however
 well-intentioned, is unnecessary and inappropriate because, "the Supreme Court
 has ignored the First and Second Amendments with impunity, so there is little
 reason to believe they would remain obedient to a new amendment to the
 Constitution."  Furthermore, Peroutka pointed out that the real force behind
 the efforts to legitimize "same-sex marriage" is not grounded in the nation's
 republican form of government, but instead is, "another example of judicial
 activism, where our constitutional form of government is replaced by judicial
 fiat."
     Peroutka explained, "The solution to the problem of judicial activism lies
 in having judges who acknowledge God as the source of all law, and who will
 follow their oath to obey the Constitution.
     "As president of the United States, I promise that I will do everything in
 my power to turn back the efforts of the homosexual lobby to destroy the
 traditional family.  I also promise that I will oppose any attempts to place
 the institution of marriage under the control of the Federal Government,"
 concluded Peroutka.
     Peroutka's vice-presidential running mate is the Dr. Chuck Baldwin from
 Pensacola, Florida.
