Backbencher of the Week

Liturgygeek and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary today. While this is a happy day for us, we remember that gay and lesbian couples are prevented from enjoying the full rights and responsibilities of marriage.

98 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are seeking to change this unjust reality. To ensure that U.S. law recognizes full and equal marriage rights for all couple the have introduced The Respect for Marriage Act. Rep. Jerald Nadler(D-NY-8) is the lead sponsor of this act.

The Backbencher recognizes Rep. Nadler and all 97 of his colleagues as this week's Backbencher of the Week for their work in giving full marriage rights to all Americans.
