Act Now: Tell Your Representatives to Vote NO on Disrespect of Marriage Act
TODAY, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on S.4556, the so-called “Respect for Marriage Act” (more like the “Disrespect of Marriage Act”). Unfortunately, 12 Republican Senators voted yes on the “Respect for Marriage Act” last week. The following 12 Senate Republicans have egregiously tried to redefine marriage: Roy Blunt (R – Missouri), Richard Burr (R-North Carolina), Shelley Capito (R-West Virginia), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Joni Ernst (R- Iowa), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyoming), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), Thom Tillis (R-North Carolina), and Todd Young (R-Indiana). 

 

Due to these 12 Republicans voting yes, it passed in the Senate and is now headed for a final vote in the U.S. House of Representatives. This bill previously passed in the House before the impotent religious liberty amendment was added in the Senate and even then, 47 House Republicans voted yes. See if your Representative voted yes here. Learn more about why the so-called religious liberty protections are weak here, and learn why Senators’ votes were a mistake here.

 

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), the nation’s largest public policy organization for women, stands for the undisputed foundation of family as the union of a man and woman in marriage who together raise children, and the importance of mothers and fathers. This Act is an attack on millions of Americans, many whom are people of faith, who affirm Biblical morality when it comes to marriage and sexuality. 

 

The Disrespect of Marriage Act would require federal recognition of any one state’s definition of marriage without any parameters whatsoever, even beyond anything that is recognized right now—plural marriages, open marriages, or even marriages involving minors and adults. Anything goes. As explained above, the Act now includes references to religious liberty. But the changes fall far short of their stated goal.

 

Tell your Representatives: Vote NO on Disrespect of Marriage Act

 

Marriage, the union between one man and one woman for life, strengthens social norms and best promotes children’s welfare.

The Left continues to ignore the facts to the detriment of the American people. They won’t even say what a woman is anymore, so we are not surprised they are taking this ridiculous step right now. Representatives should stand strongly against their continued denigration of women, mothers and fathers, and the institution of marriage.
