Democrats succumb to political reality on same-sex marriage bill


The Senate’s Respect for Marriage Act has progressives arguing that efforts to safeguard same-sex unions remain unfinished after concessions were made to Republican demands for bolstered religious liberty protections.

The bill as it currently stands would officially repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and require state recognition of legal same-sex and interracial marriages but would not codify the Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges that legalized same-sex unions nationwide or prevent the high court from eventually overturning the landmark decision.

  1. I'm thinking that when the punishment from On High comes for codifying same-sex marriage it will be nuanced and take into effect tthe fact that the door was left open when formulating the law to undo the damage at a later time. Maybe the attribute of Mercy will lead to a postponement of the punishment as long as there is a possibility another Congress and Supreme Court will act differently.
