Democrats begin working on removing two words from all federal law code — words that were taken straight from the Bible.
Rep. Lois Capps, D-Calif., and her colleagues have decided that the “gendered” words, husband and wife, were inappropriate and discriminatory toward same-sex couples.
“The Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act recognizes that the words in our laws have meaning and can continue to reflect prejudice and discrimination even when rendered null by our highest courts,” Capps said of her efforts to strip the two traditional words.
“Our values as a country are reflected in our laws. I authored this bill because it is imperative that our federal code reflect the equality of all marriages,” Capps explained.
The bill, according to Capps, is the “next step” in the wake of the ruling, making sure the U.S Code “reflects the equality of all marriages.”
