12 Republicans Join Democrats to Rush Marriage Bill: ‘Devastating Blow to Religious Freedom’

(Worthy News) – The Senate is fast-tracking a bill that could deny religious freedom for individuals and faith-based organizations.

On Thursday, 12 Senate Republicans joined with their Democratic colleagues to move the “Respect for Marriage Act” forward. A final vote is expected this month.

The bill would repeal the 1996 “Defense of Marriage Act” signed by President Bill Clinton, which affirms for federal purposes that marriage is the union of one man and one woman and also permits states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages granted in other states.
