(LifeSiteNews) – In 2014, then-Vice President Joe Biden claimed in a July 4 address that same-sex “marriage” – which had not yet been imposed on the entire country by the Supreme Court – fulfills “the spirit” of the Declaration of Independence. During the same speech he called same-sex “marriage” the “civil rights issue of our day, making it clear that you should be able to marry whoever you love — period.”

Nearly a decade later, now-President Joe Biden signed the so-called Respect for Marriage Act enshrining same-sex “marriage” into federal law. But same-sex “marriage” has largely faded as an issue debated by the public – now, conservative warnings about the slippery slope have come to pass and debates about drag shows for kindergarteners and gender mutilating drugs and surgeries for kids have taken the main stage.
