True Native American Leadership

          Navajo tribal council upholds gay marriage ban

     Once in a while I hear a story that revives my faith in leadership. This does not mean the leadership of our "Federal Family" in Washington DC  however.

     The story posted below is an old one but I recieved news from another source; Quinn and Rose; that the decision was recently upheld. The Tribal Council of the Navajo Nation has total sovereignty in making such decisions. I have heard little response from the Gay Mob on the issue, other than one scathing report from MSLSD. Google has wiped most links to the story. As Native Americans belong to a victim's group I doubt if you will see much of an actual Gay backlash...unles someone sees a chance at suing a native casino one day for discrimination of one sort or another. 

    WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. - The Navajo Nation has outlawed same-sex marriages on its sprawling Indian reservation.

The Tribal Council voted unanimously Friday in favor of the Dine Marriage Act of 2005. Dine is the Navajos' name for themselves.

The act restricts a recognized union to a relationship between a man and a woman and prohibits plural marriages as well as any marriage between parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren, brothers and sisters and other close relatives.

Supporters say the goal is to promote Navajo family values.

''Men and women have been created in a sacred manner. We need to honor this,'' said delegate Harriet Becenti.

Wouldn't it be nice if our disfunctional "Federal Family" would support  such solid family values.

Everyone everywhere is wiser than Washington.
