On Monday, the Senate will vote again on whether to advance the redefinition of marriage, and this may be our last chance to add real religious liberty protections to the bill. People of faith have been targeted by the Left for their belief that marriage is between a man and a woman; if the so-called Respect for Marriage Act bill becomes law without substantial protections, courts are likely to interpret the law as a national policy on natural marriage, equating the belief that marriage is between one man and one woman with racism. Furthermore, the bill will supercharge legal attacks by granting a private right of action to almost anyone. Currently there are no equivalent protections in the bill.
A cloture vote, requiring 60 votes, is set for Monday evening. Senator Ernst and 11 other Republican senators voted to advance this bill last week; if she and just two others withhold their vote for cloture Monday, they can force Democrats to add strong religious liberty protections to the bill. But she needs to hear from you.
