The United States Senate voted Wednesday to advance the so-called Respect for Marriage Act.

The motion received 62 “aye” votes and 37 “no” votes.

Twelve Republicans voted for advancing the radical legislation: Sens. Roy Blunt of Missouri, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Shelley Capito of West Virginia, Susan Collins of Maine, Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Rob Portman of Ohio, Mitt Romney of Utah, Dan Sullivan of Alaska, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Joni Ernst of Iowa, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Todd Young of Indiana.

H.R. 8404 “provides statutory authority for same-sex and interracial marriages,” repealing provisions that define marriage as between a man and a woman.

The legislation, which was passed by the House in July, also “repeals and replaces provisions that do not require states to recognize same-sex marriages from other states with provisions that prohibit the denial of full faith and credit or any right or claim relating to out-of-state marriages on the basis of sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin,” allows “the Department of Justice to bring a civil action,” and “establishes a private right of action for violations.”

And there kids is your primary list.

This is the latest in a series of wrong votes from my own Senator, Joni Ernst. My guess is she has been compromised and blackmailed.

Please tell me how and why the Federal government should EVER have ANY say in who should get married to who.

Personal decisions are just that. Leave it to the states, insofar as a legal commitment to another person ought to be honored and enforced as a matter of common law in the courts.

Just get the hell out of our lives, okay? I don't understand gay "marriage" and I never will. But leaving us all alone to live our lives freely without any special rights or favors would be a great development.

I was surprised to see her on the list.  Disappointing.
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
    I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

Best I recall, the tax, inheritance, privacy (primarily medical) and survivor ship laws kicked this debate into high gear...
I guess it is better for the politicians to include a victimized group rather than undo the stupid laws to begin with..

Shelley Moore Capito is little better than Joe Manchin, most of the time.

Twelve Republicans voting to deny the citizens of Georgia the right under the Tenth Amendment to formulate our own marriage laws.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

That's the thing - The feds have no business in marriage whatsoever.

Which makes me wonder what SCOTUS will do if this law is challenged.

Hopefully the right thing. The stickler is reciprocity...

Hell's bells, I was surprised to find out that Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota (since 1977), New Hampshire, and Alabama have laws against interracial marriage. It isn't just a Southern thing, either.  :shrug:

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

I bet those laws have not been applied in a very long time.
