Minute Rant: Steve [the] King of the Anti-Gays

Iowa Republican, of course, Steve King has introduced a bill — Restrain the Judges on Marriage Act of 2015 — that would strip federals courts of the power to rule on marriage because, well, Gay: 

“For too long, federal courts have overstepped their constitutionally limited duty to interpret the Constitution. 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 would strip away 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.

King doesn’t seem to be aware that times have changed since the Founding Father drafted the Constitution, but then Steve King is the same wacknut gay-hater who said that in 2000 years, no gay person has ever gone to heaven.

Then, the next day he said that leftists had "fabricated" the remark and then added that he stands by having said it.

He said, then said people made it up, and then said he said it? I’d like a Constitutional amendment banning Steve King from opening his yap; who’s with me?

It's interesting that these right wing nuts always know what the Founding Fathers meant to do when they wrote the Constitution. How come nobody else is able to second guess the Founding Fathers?
