VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) Must Be Rewritten

By Phyllis Schlafly

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), now up for reauthorization, is in major need of revision. Its billion-dollar-a-year price tag spent by the radical feminists to pursue their ideology and goals (known as feminist pork) make it an embarrassment to Members of Congress who voted for it.For 30 years, the feminists have been pretending that their goal is to abolish all sex discrimination, eliminating all gender differences no matter how reasonable. When it comes to domestic violence, however, feminist dogma preaches that there is an innate gender difference: men are naturally batterers and women are naturally victims (i.e., gender profiling).
Starting with its title, VAWA is just about as sex discriminatory as legislation can get. It is written and implemented to oppose the abuse of women and to punish men.

Protect DOMA: Support the Foxx-Burton Amendment!

Protect DOMA: Support the Foxx-Burton Amendment!
July 5, 2011
Our friends at the Center for Military Readiness just informed us that one of our favorite Members of Congress, Virginia Foxx (R-NC), has proposed an amendment to ensure that defense dollars are not used to violate the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  Please urge your Congressman to support this effort.
In a hasty effort to implement the reversal of the 1993 law prohibiting homosexuals from openly serving in the military, often called “don’t ask, don’t tell,” which Congress approved during the lame duck session last December, the Navy Chief of Chaplains issued a memorandum stating that chaplains could perform same sex marriages once the ban was lifted. However, after traditional marriage defenders and concerned citizens like you protested this potential violation of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the Navy reversed its position.
Congresswoman Foxx and her co-sponsor Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN) plan to offer this language as a limiting amendment to the House Defense Appropriations Bill, H.R. 2219, which will be considered on the House floor tomorrow:“No funds under the act may be used for activities in contravention of Public Law 104-199, the Defense of Marriage Act.”
As you can see, the Foxx-Burton Amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill is clean and simple but all-encompassing. The legislation simply expresses the intent of Congress that in all military policies, regulations, programs, and matters involving benefits, funds may not be used for activities in contravention of the Defense of Marriage Act.
Rep. Foxx  will offer her amendment on the floor, probably late in the day TOMORROW – Wednesday, July 6.  
Some talking points in support of the amendment, which is consistent with two amendments already approved as part of the House Defense Authorization Bill, are linked here:
It is extremely important that this amendment get the full support it deserves.
Call your Congressman and tell him or her to take a stand for traditional marriage by voting for the Foxx-Burton amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill (H.R. 2219).
