In late July, the House of Representatives introduced a bill aimed at “codifying the findings of the Obergefel v. Hodges case and the 2015 redefinition of marriage,” which was hastily passed within hours.

Many Republicans chose to run for office rather than defend the institution of marriage. Calling the move a political stunt, they chose to criticize only the lack of regular order and similarities in the legislative process, instead of defending basic natural truths.

Worse, when a handful of Republican senators voiced their support for redefining marriage, Senate Republicans seem more inclined to capitulate than they were before the election. Now there is a compromising amendment that simply restates that religious liberty and conscience protections exist in the Constitution and threatens to provide the 60 votes necessary for federal law to pass.

To stop left-wing extremists from dragging good people into the court system and blaming and blaming in the press those who simply live their lives faithful to God, even if it is simply a reversal of what already exists. You can not.

It’s bad enough that five members of the Supreme Court falsely argued that the U.S. Constitution needed a new definition of marriage, but if the Senate voted to codify this redefinition of marriage , only adds fuel to the fire of those who harass and punish. Citizens and organizations that hold truth about marriage.

The Senate bill addresses religious liberty and the right of conscience only lip service, but offers no meaningful protection for those rights. If the Senate sponsors had wished, they could have clearly stated that no individual or organization operating according to the belief that marriage unites husband and wife would be punished by the government. .

However, the bill does not provide such protection. It’s not a compromise, nor is it a bad one. It puts a false definition of marriage in our law and tells people that if they get sued they can spend the day in court.

Republican senators must do their part to defend the truth and the good. Marriage is a natural and supernatural institution before it is a political institution. Human law should reflect the laws of nature and the laws of eternity. Senators should not vote to allow the government to redefine what marriage is.

Marriage serves as a cultural pace car that determines and reflects the health of American society and culture as a whole. The future of this country depends on the future of marriage.

Marriage is a natural institution that predates government. Based on the anthropological truth that men and women are distinct and complementary. It is based on the biological fact that reproduction requires both a man and a woman. And it is based on the social reality that a child deserves both a mother and a father. It increases the chances of committing to both the children you help make and their mothers.

Marriage is so important to our society, especially the most vulnerable members, that marriage is not something that can be legislated and delivered in one day. In seven years, American culture has changed at breakneck speed. Even recent generations would be virtually unrecognizable.

Despite continued assertions by members of parliament and unelected judges, truths over thousands of years were simply dismissed or rewritten to suit the views of socially pressured activists of the time. cannot be defined.

The law should not be neutral regarding marriage. It can affirm the truth or promote distortion.


The basic truth will always remain – marriage is between one man and one woman. There is. To make matters worse, governments can punish citizens and organizations that accept the truth. This is why it is outrageous that no clear protections for such citizens are included in the bill.

Those who see and know the truth have a moral obligation to stand firm in defending the truth and defending the institution of marriage. It takes courage to defy the cultural and political pressures of oppression and compromise. The question is how many Republicans will present it when it comes to the floor for a vote.
