WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – A self-described “Christian” and “conservative” senator said that Congress needs to pass a federal law enshrining a right to same-sex “marriage” in order for the United States to have a chance at “survival.”
Wyoming Republican Senator Cynthia Lummis joined on Tuesday with 11 other Republicans and all of the Democrats except Georgia’s Raphael Warnock, who is campaigning for re-election, to pass the “Respect for Marriage Act,” which would require the federal government to recognize any partnership called a “marriage” by a state, even incestuous ones.
Lummis explained that her vote would help the country survive.
These are turbulent times for our nation.
Americans address each other in more crude and cruel terms than ever in my lifetime. It is jarring and unbecoming of us as human beings. It is highly intolerant and frequently the most so when expressed by those who advocate for tolerance. Many of us ask ourselves, ‘Our nation is so divided. When will this end? And how will it end?
For the sake of our nation today and its survival, we do well by taking this step, not embracing or validating each other’s devoutly held views, but by the simple act of tolerating them.
The legislation will likely allow activists and attorneys to target Jewish, Christian, and Muslim institutions that refuse to conduct same-sex “marriages,” throwing into question how much “tolerance” this law will engender.
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."
“As a Christian and a conservative, ensuring that the religious liberties of people in Wyoming are protected and that no institution would be forced to perform a ceremony that is not in line with their values is absolutely essential,” Lummis said in explaining an earlier vote to move the bill forward.
The “Respect for Marriage Act” poses grave threats to religious freedom, as numerous social conservative and religious liberty organizations have warned.
Lummis also claimed that she actually does believe marriage is between one man and one woman, despite voting completely contrary to that truth, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.
