Warning: Attempts to legitimize same-sex 'marriage' aren't over

A traditional values group is warning that a Democrat-sponsored bill tagged as being "respectful" of marriage is, in fact, disrespectful – and destructive – of biblical marriage and needs to be strongly opposed.

Homosexual "marriage" was forced on the country by the Supreme Court's Obergefell decision in 2015. But after Roe v. Wade was overturned in June by the same court, some quarters of the "gay" movement became a bit shaken. Since then, the Democrat-led House has passed a bill (with the help of some Republicans) to legalize same-gender marriage and sent it to the Senate.

Mary Beth Waddell of the Family Research Council tells AFN it's not true the misnamed "Respect for Marriage Act" (H.R.8404) would only codify the Supreme Court ruling.

"This bill would expand the federal redefinition of marriage, create a new legislative vehicle for attacks on people of faith, further exacerbate already existing attacks on religious liberty, and legislatively cement policies that are harmful to children," she lists. (More details here)

Liberal senators have suggested they have the ten votes needed to prevent a filibuster and bring the House bill to a vote.

"Currently I still think they do not [have those votes]," she responds. "I think they're being a little bit over optimistic when they say that they do or that they're close to it. However, it's not impossible to be able to count to ten and think it's within the realm of possibility."

That's why groups like Family Research Council and American Family Association are encouraging people to contact their senators to vote against H.R.8404. The vote could happen soon.
