What to Watch for
H.R. Bill 8404
This bill, deceivingly called the Respect for Marriage Act, holds the sole purpose of redefining marriage. The traditional understanding of marriage as between a man and a woman will be replaced with provisions that recognize any marriage valid under any state law. You can read the full bill on the Congress.Gov website here.
This bill passed in the House of Representatives in July of 2022 and will probably be pushed through the Senate during the lame duck session that just started now that the mid-term elections are over.
Please understand that this legislation will, if passed, obliterate the traditional family. Remember family-friendly movies, family-friendly resorts, family-friendly bathrooms? They will no exist because recognizing the traditional family unit WILL BE ILLEGAL.
In case you may think I’m unnecessarily crying wolf, read this portion of a letter written by the Liberty Counsel:
“As [this bill] is written, if just one state allowed incestuous marriage (e.g., between a father and daughter or mother and son), this bill would force all 49 states to recognize and respect that “marriage.”
