News release from Stevenson campaign:
Jayme Stevenson, the Republican and Independent candidate for Congress in Connecticut’s 4th Congressional district, joins more than 400 current & former Republican leaders to sign the Centerline America letter urging the United States Senate to pass the Respect for Marriage Act.
Jayme recently received the endorsement of Connecticut and National Log Cabin Republicans–the nation’s largest Republican organization dedicated to representing LGBT conservatives and allies–due to her outspoken support for the LGBTQ community and advocating for civil liberties and marriage equality.
“One of my priorities is restoring and preserving freedoms that allow every American to pursue their own version of happiness to be healthy and productive individuals accepted within their communities. I am proud to show my support or the Respect for Marriage Act,” stated Stevenson. “I believe in freedoms and liberties for everyone, and a more inclusive future for all Americans. The diversity of our nation has always made us stronger, and we rely on our individual rights to succeed personally and professionally.”
See attached letter and the list of those who signed “Preserve the Freedom to Marry” urging Senate to pass the “Respect for Marriage Act.”
Stevenson says “I believe in freedoms and liberties for everyone, and a more inclusive future for all Americans”. What happened with John Flynn, star Darien High School football player Charlie Zuro, the underclass members of the Darien High School swim team and Jay Hardison while she was Darien First Selectman (2011-2021)?
In 2015, I did a critique of the U.S. Supreme Court decision which legalized same sex marriage, Obergefell v. Hodges. I commented as follows:
” The concept of same-sex marriage implies that the sexes are [similar]. Even without the subject of procreation, such a notion is without foundation”.
Also in my critique, I discuss some of the views of Judge Robert H. Bork on privacy rights, their extents and limitations, including with reference to his book Coercing Virtue – The Worldwide Rule of Judges.
Democrats in Congress are in a hurry to codify everything that may be reviewed by the Supreme Court.
I think Congress got it right with the Defense of Marriage Act which Joe Biden championed.
Not that it would effect the outcome, but I advised Stevenson I would not vote for her based on her position.
