Stop Congress From Forcing Homosexual ‘Marriage’ On The States! Tell Your Senators To Vote NO.

(LifeSiteNews) – LifeSite’s petition demanding that Republican senators oppose Democrats’ same-sex “marriage” bill has hit 10,000 signatures, reflecting broad disapproval of the radical legislation among conservative voters.

The Senate will vote today at 3:15 p.m. EST on the “Respect for Marriage Act” (RFMA), which would codify the redefinition of marriage into federal and pose grave threats to religious freedom. The bill already passed the House in July.

“Republican members of the U.S. Senate still have a chance to defend natural marriage by stopping this bill from becoming law, but we need to let them know that the American people oppose the left’s seemingly never-ending efforts to degrade the sanctity of marriage,” states LifeSite’s petition message.

At least four Republican senators, including Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Rob Portman of Ohio, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, have signaled that they will vote in favor of the Respect for Marriage Act.

We need YOU to be a voice for natural marriage and the constitutional freedom of individual states by SIGNING and SHARING this petition calling on Republican U.S. Senators to oppose the deceitfully named "Respect for Marriage Act!"

Leftist members of Congress have, once again, opted to ignore the myriad of issues facing our country — be it the border crisis, gas prices, inflation, crime, and more — to instead virtue-signal by introducing their radical new bill, the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act," which, among other things, would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.

And with the radical left continuing its attempts to redefine words, people, and events to better suit their agenda and advance their political narratives, it should come as no surprise that their latest target happens to be natural marriage.

But marriage is not a political tool for the left to manipulate and destroy; it is the key building block of our society, and the primary basis for the safe, responsible upbringing of our children.

Republican members of the U.S. Senate still have a chance to defend natural marriage by stopping this bill from becoming law, but we need to let them know that the American people oppose the left's seemingly never-ending efforts to degrade the sanctity of marriage.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to Republican members of the U.S. Senate, insisting that they vote against the "Respect for Marriage Act" when it comes before them for any form of vote.
 


The legislation in question, formally filed as H.R.8404 and sponsored by liberal New York Congressman Jerry Nadler, would codify same-sex marriage into federal law, effectively forcing states to recognize any marriage performed in another state regardless of laws on their own books.

It would also fully repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which was signed by President Clinton back in 1996 and formally defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman under federal law.

With the fall of Roe v. Wade back in June, the left's paranoia about losing ground when it comes to their radical social and political agenda has reached a fever pitch, resulting in the ongoing push for the "Respect for Marriage Act," which, if we don't act soon, may well become law...

TIME IS RUNNING OUT: With a 50-50 Senate, the left needs just TEN Republican members to bow to pressure: the mainstream media, Big Tech, Hollywood, and the university system are all fighting against us. With so much pressure against conservatives, we need you to send these Senators a powerful message demanding that they stand strong against the left.

That's why we need your help now.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to Republican U.S. Senators across the country, urging them to stand against the left's attempts to reinvent marriage by opposing the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act" when it comes before them for a vote.

Protect natural marriage! Protect the freedoms of individual states!

Put Republican U.S. Senators on notice and let them know that you're watching closely how they vote on the "Respect for Marriage Act."

Thank you!

Other potential “yes” votes include Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Deb Fischer of Nebraska, Joni Ernst of Iowa, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, and Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming.

Democrats need 10 Republican votes to overcome the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold.

Polling shows that the Republican Party’s conservative base resoundingly rejects the Respect for Marriage Act, and that passing it could lead to a significant backlash for the GOP.

recent Economist/YouGov poll found that more than 57 percent of Republican voters oppose national legislation to codify same-sex “marriage,” including 41 percent who strongly oppose it. Just 30 percent of Republican voters support it, and only 11 percent strongly support it.

On Monday, a group of Republican and Democratic senators championing the Respect for Marriage Act announced changes to address religious liberty concerns, but the new language does virtually nothing to protect Christian institutions and has faced widespread criticism from prominent social conservatives, as LifeSiteNews reported.
