Still Not Satisfied, Fresh Attempts to Wipe ‘Husband’ and ‘Wife’ from Federal Lexicon Says America is No Longer a Moral Leader

June’s Supreme Court decision overturned the definition of marriage that had previously stood for millennia. Now, a group of lawmakers is working to wipe out the terms “husband” and “wife” from the landscape of America—all in the name of equality.

Rep. Lois Capps (D-Calif.) has introduced the Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act of 2015 that would strike the use of gendered terms such as “husband” and “wife” from the federal code and replace them with more gender-neutral terms, such as “spouse” or “married couple.” So far, there are 23 original co-sponsors to the bill, Capps reports on her web site.

This latest proposed legislation is just one example of the many ways America is demonstrating a shredding of the moral fabric on which the country was founded, says Sam Rohrer, president of the American Pastors Network and the Pennsylvania Pastors Network (PPN, 

First, marriage was redefined throughout the nation, and Americans’ freedoms were taken away though the passage and subsequent protection of a severely flawed government health care plan. Then, an abortion industry scandal erupts after Planned Parenthood leaders casually talk about the body parts of unborn babies over dinner. Although the undercover video has outraged many, Rohrer says it’s an entirely different culture when conversations like these would even occur in the first place.

Rohrer recently talked about the moral change in America on APN’s daily one-hour radio program, “Stand in the Gap Today,” as the homosexual agenda advances at breakneck speed.

“It’s telling that as an example, Russia and the Russian Orthodox Church have claimed the moral position regarding family and sexuality and clearly linked the U.S. and the West to moral depravity,” Rohrer said. “I recently talked about this on our radio show, ‘Stand in the Gap Today,’ and cited an article in the Free Republic outlining how Russia is battling ‘gay fever.’ Redefining the terminology in marriage of ‘husband and wife’ is further indication of the insatiable appetite of a culture that has rejected the authority of God, redefined eternal Truth into ‘what feels good at the moment’ to seek the complete destruction of concept of  marriage between one naturally born man and one naturally born woman. 

“If everything that marriage represents is eliminated, including the language, why not just settle for civil unions?” Rohrer continued. “Instead, those who wish to throw off God’s design for human sexuality will continue to push until marriage as this nation has known it will be completely unrecognizable. There can never be moral parity nor is there anything equal between a man and a woman getting married, and two homosexual men or two lesbian women getting married.”

According to Rep. Capps web site, the Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act would not only “ensure that the code reflects marriage equality, but it could also make several positive changes to the U.S. Code by removing areas of gender discrimination written into federal law. For instance, it is currently illegal to threaten the President’s wife—but not the President’s husband. Capps’ bill would update the code to make it illegal to threaten the President’s spouse. The bill would correct a number of these types of discrepancies in the code.”

Rohrer added that the very notion that terms God created—male and female, that He created them, according to Matthew 19:4—are now being targeted in order to wash them out of society is confirming proof of the downward moral spiral of America.

“While the SCOTUS ruling embracing same-sex marriage has, in part, contributed to a constitutional crisis, it has confirmed to the world that America is no longer the moral leader,” Rohrer said. “And while a constitutional crisis has been exacerbated by the SCOTUS opinion embracing same sex marriage, it nonetheless has difficult but definable solutions. The moral crisis created around the globe is far deeper and may prove fatal to the future of America.”

APN’s Stand in the Gap Today” is a daily one-hour program hosted by Rohrer, along with Gary Dull, APN board member, executive director and vice president of the PPN, (, and Dave Kistler, president of the North Carolina Pastors Network (NCPN,

Daily, “Stand in the Gap Today” considers current news topics and welcomes guests, including guest comments during “Phone-In Friday.” “Stand in the Gap Today” can be heard on several stations throughout Pennsylvania, via satellite and streamed lived online at or can be heard after each broadcast at
