Exposing the So-Called Respect for Marriage Act
The Respect for Marriage Act, H.R.8404, was signed on the White House lawn earlier this week. Contrary to bold claims, the law did nothing to change the legal status or provide any additional protections regarding marriage. Interracial marriage has been fully legal in the US since 1967 and same-sex marriage has been legal since 2015. The bill does; however, expose Americans to predatory lawsuits for holding to traditional values about life, marriage, and family. Hence, it has been dubbed the (dis)Respect for Marriage Act.
