Our country is one step closer to making homosexual "marriage" the law of the land, and we have so-called Republican senators to thank for it.
The dirty dozen, I call them.
In the 7 years since the Obergefell Supreme Court decision on same-sex "marriage," we have seen the transgender agenda take off and the sexualization of children in drag queen events. We've seen churches, Christian business owners, and other people of faith constantly fighting legal battles against the harassers of the LGBT "tolerance" community, and the widespread celebration of all things sexual.
Now that we're at the tipping point where Americans will soon be unpersoned and jailed for refusing to celebrate sexual practices that violate not only their own consciences, but the explicit orders of God Almighty worshipped by billions around the globe, the GOP is standing up to tyranny by going right along with the program.
From the Washington Times:
Legislation to enshrine marriage equality into federal law cleared a key procedural hurdle in the Senate on Wednesday with bipartisan support, overcoming the 60-vote hurdle needed to advance toward passage.
The Respect for Marriage Act would codify into law the Supreme Court's ruling making same-sex marriage a federal right, but with exemptions for religious organizations not to participate, a carveout that secured the Republican votes needed for the legislation to survive.
It needed 60 votes and there were more than enough fake conservative RINOs in the Senate to make it happen.
"The Respect for Marriage Act does not provide any meaningful benefit to same-sex marriages that does not already exist. It does significantly threaten religious liberty," said Sen. Patrick Toomey, a Pennsylvania Republican who voted against the bill. "This legislation would enable activists to sue faith-based groups that provide vital services for our communities in an attempt to force them to abandon their deeply held beliefs about marriage, or close their doors."
This is precisely correct. This bill doesn't change anything about the legality of homosexual "marriage," it only provides the rainbow brigade more grounds to come after private citizens who oppose the LGBT lifestyle.
As public support for same-sex marriage has increased, conservative-leaning religious groups that historically opposed it have changed their tune. This week, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, popularly known as the Mormon Church, became the latest group to back the legislation.
Mr. Romney, who is Mormon, said the bill provides "important protections for religious liberty."
"While I believe in traditional marriage, Obergefell is and has been the law of the land upon which LGBTQ individuals have relied," he said in a statement, referring to the Supreme Court case Obergefell v. Hodges that legalized same-sex marriage. "This legislation provides certainty to many LGBTQ Americans, and it signals that Congress — and I — esteem and love all of our fellow Americans equally."
We're one step closer to the legal definition of marriage being permanently altered in law.
These dirty dozen Republicans have thrown you under the bus.
It's hard to overstate the damage done here:
