FRC Action sent an alert on Monday letting people know that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and “radical Democrats” introduced a bill on Monday to codify the redefinition of marriage into law.

“That bill, the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act, is schedule to receive a vote Tuesday morning,” the email said. “Click here to tell your member of Congress to vote no!”

FRC Action said the Defense of Marriage Act was approved in 1996 with “overwhelming bipartisan majorities” in both the House and the Senate. It was signed by Democrat President Bill Clinton.

“As the Republican Party Platform observes, “[t]raditional marriage and family, based on marriage between one man and one woman, is the foundation for a free society and has for millennia been entrusted with rearing children and instilling cultural values.” Thus, “the [U.S.] Supreme Court’s ruling in United States v. Windsor, which wrongly removed the ability of Congress to define marriage policy in federal law,” is to be condemned. Congress should certainly not affirm this ruling now by voting for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act.

“Your member of Congress will vote tomorrow. Make your voice heard now.”
