Biden Signs Controversial “Respect for Marriage Act” Into Law

The “Respect for Marriage Act”, federally protecting same-sex and interracial couples, was signed into law at the White House early Tuesday afternoon.

Those in attendance celebrated afterward with dance numbers, musical performances, and celebrities in attendance. Support for the bill was shared amongst both parties, with 39 Republicans joining Democrats in their support.

The bill voids the Defense of Marriage Act from 1996, which legally defined marriage as being between one man and one woman- a bill that President Biden supported at the time as Senator.

Throughout the decades, Biden’s position has shifted on the definition of marriage, and today signifies a key moment in the progressive agenda for governmental control over our moral definitions, not just our individual freedoms.

Biden stated in his speech, “This shouldn’t be about being conservative or liberal, red or blue, no this is about realizing the promise of the Declaration of Independence, a promise rooted in sacred and secular beliefs.”

Those who hold to a traditional definition of marriage might find this statement from Biden to be a confusion of moral sources, while others may find it to be just another happy-go-lucky statement about equality.

For one, the Government’s needs to define marriage at all might call into question what the difference is between laws and one’s own moral convictions. It also makes us wonder where the line is, since if the government can define marriage, can they define my rights as a citizen in the name of “freedom”?

Amongst the Republican supporters was RINO Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) who emphasized that the bill would not interfere with the rights of individuals or of private businesses. But the reality is the bill does include language that allows LGBTQ couples to sue people of faith who refuse to accept their non-traditional marriage relationships in civil court.

Time will tell how this affects many of us business owners, retail shoppers, and our communities, with the government taking another step in this overreach of protections.

The reality is the bill was unnecessary as states have already been allowing people, of the same sex to marry since the SCOTUS ruling of Obergefell v. Hodges in 2013.
