Heritage Action: Calls Needed Against “Respect for Marriage Act” to Defend Religious Liberty


From Heritage Action: “In the wake of the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade, the Left was apoplectic and has been frantically trying to strike back against social conservatives ever since.
Their next target? Your religious liberty, one of the most fundamental rights enshrined in our Constitution.
The House and Senate have advanced the “Respect for Marriage Act” which would repeal an earlier law that defended marriage as being between one man and one woman. It would allow lawsuits against people and institutions who simply hold a different view on marriage.
Because federal law provides for same sex marriage as a result of the Supreme Court’s Obergfell and Windsor decisions, the only effect this bill would have is to harass religious institutions and individuals.
It would threaten religious institutions such as churches, universities, charities, and adoption centers with lawsuits, removal of tax-exempt status, and even closure.
The bill has been able to advance to such a late stage due to gaining the support of 12 Republicans who have been fooled into believing this bill adequately protects religious liberty.
As a grassroots organization, it is our duty to hold Congress accountable. It’s not too late! They need to hear from you.
On Monday, CALL your Senator and tell them to vote “NO” on the “Respect for Marriage Act” and defend the rights of individuals who have the right to disagree with same-sex relationships.”

Ohio Sen Rob Portman was one of 12 Republicans voting for this terrible “Respect for Marriage Act” but the final vote will be after Thanksgiving, so there is still time for him to change his mind and vote No. You can call his office at (202)224-3353!
