House Votes to Support Traditional Marriage

July 22, 2004
U.S. House members Thursday voted to strengthen a law that defines marriage as an act between one man and one woman. By a vote of 233 to 194, the House action is also seen as a defeat for homosexual activists seeking to export the legal rights of marriage from one state to another.

Massachusetts has legalized homosexual marriage and San Francisco city officials earlier this year allowed thousands of homosexual marriages to take place, but most states and local jurisdictions still legally limit marriage to heterosexuals.

The Marriage Protection Act, if signed into law, would prevent federal courts from hearing challenges to a key provision of the similarly titled Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which became law in 1996. FR Reprint.
