Respect for Marriage Act — Really?

In July, the House of Representatives passed a bill misnamed the Respect for Marriage Act. The legislation repeals the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which had asserted the traditional definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Of course, the 5 to 4 Supreme Court decision in 2015, Obergefell V. Hodges, legalizing same-sex marriage already effectively repealed DOMA. So, why are Senate Democrats pushing a vote to repeal something no longer in force? The advocates say they are doing so because they fear the Supreme Court will invalidate same-sex marriage based on the same reasoning it used to overturn Roe v. Wade. This is disingenuous. The Court majority specifically said the Roe decision was not linked to any other precedent.

What is clear is that the deceptively-named Respect for Marriage Act will provide a new avenue for attacks on people of faith and religious liberty. To pass the Senate, the legislation needs 60 senators to vote to advance it. All 50 Democrats appear certain to support it. Most Republican senators oppose it, but some are wavering. It is important to urge Republican senators to oppose the bill and to safeguard religious liberty.

Under the proposed changes, WHO, a United Nations entity, would have sweeping new powers over public health authorities and elected officials in the U.S. and around the world. In addition, all signs point to the treaty not being sent to the Senate for ratification, but being agreed to, unilaterally, by the White House.
