The NFA Daily Spotlight: Respect For Marriage Act Threatens Religious Liberty And States’ Rights
David Closson, Director of the Center for Biblical Worldview at Family Research Council, joined the NFA Daily Spotlight to discuss a radical proposal in the U.S. Senate to redefine marriage. The so-called “Respect for Marriage Act” would force states to recognize other states’ marriage laws, including polygamy, open marriages, marriages involving a minor or relative, platonic marriages, and any other marriage definition a state adopts.
Since the Obergefell decision, wedding vendors, faith-based adoption agencies, and religious schools have faced countless lawsuits. Not only does this act threaten states’ rights, it further erodes religious freedom by subjecting people of faith, private businesses, and Christian non-profit organizations that believe marriage is only between one man and one woman to increased litigation. Contact your U.S. Senators, and urge them to protect the conscience rights of Nebraskans and vote against the “Respect for Marriage Act.”
