President Joe Biden signed a bill that codifies gay marriage across the nation. The Dec. 13 signing took place after Alaska Senators Dan Sullivan and Lisa Murkowski cast crucial votes to help narrowly pass a national gay marriage bill in the U.S. Senate, which was then approved in the House with the help of Rep. Mary Peltola.

Biden signed the so-called Respect for Marriage Act while surrounded by radical LGBTQ activists, including a young drag queen performer. Seconds after he signed the law, Lady Gaga’s song, “I was born this way,” blasted from the White House with the lyrics, “Don’t be a drag – just be a queen” as LGBTQ political activists burst into cheering and dancing.

On Dec. 8, Alaska Congresswoman Mary Peltola joined all 219 House Democrats, along with 39 Republicans in helping to pass the legislation. Days before, Sullivan and Murkowski abandoned the vast majority of their GOP colleagues in helping Senate Democrats pass their version of the bill on a 61-36 vote, which included 12 Republicans voting in support. The bill needed 60 votes to pass the Senate, which means Sullivan and Murkowski could have stopped the bill if they would have joined the majority of Republicans.

Striking a defiant tone, Biden said the law provides a legal mandate for gay marriage in every state. The bill, however, also poses grave threats to religious liberty by mandating that all states grant “full faith and credit” to same-sex “marriages” performed in another state, while requiring that the federal government recognize polygamous “marriages” if they are considered valid by an individual state.

Numerous religious liberty organizations and advocates have warned that the legislation will force non-profit groups and private businesses and services that accept public funds to recognize gay “marriage.” This includes adoption services, homeless shelters and other charitable organizations.

The bill also empowers future lawsuits against individuals or organizations that hold to a traditional view of marriage.

The 2015 Supreme Court decision in Obergefell said states could no longer define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, but had to recognize gay “marriage.” The official Republican Party Platform clearly opposes this ruling.

Worried that a more conservative U.S. Supreme Court might one-day overturn Obergefell, Democrats pushed the “Respect for Marriage Act” to ensure that the high court could not unravel gay “marriage” by overturning Obergefell sometime in the future.

    What a joke this nation is. We already had gay marriage orotection.
    Lisa, Dan and Mary are complete frauds, oath breakers.
    Looking forward to this being abolished vy SCOTUS.
    You idiots.

    • jon says:

      The Supreme Court could have negated gay and interracial marriage under the existing conditions, that’s why they were codified. Roe should have been codified too.

  • Michael Johnson says:

    We do not have representatives; we have a criminal syndicate ignoring the will of the people and implementing the globalist cabal’s vision of the world they want. They are purposely shredding your Constitution, and therefore your rights, through illegal legislation bent on destroying them. This is the problem our founders warned us of and placed certain safeguards against in the Constitution. The Emoluments Clause, Article 1 Section 9 will bring all the corrupt politicians down. The majority of them have taken money to undermine the Constitution, enrich themselves and overthrow our government in at least 2 elections now. The 2020 & 2022 election were stolen through copious amounts of fraud and election engineering. This would fall under treason and sedition against the United States. Now all we need is the representatives and judges with the cohunes to follow through and bring them to justice!

    The message of Sodom and Gomorrah was not heeded and yet they bow their heads in prayer? To whom? This is a mockery and I fear the lords repercussions upon this nation, may god have mercy on us all.

    The US is going the way of Rome. Rome expanded its empire beyond its control, collapsed its economy with fiat currency, culturally disintegrated into perversions that destroyed its ability to defend itself and corrupted its national identity, and was ultimately defeated by waves of attacks by bands of unsophisticated, tribal germans. Out of the ashes rose Christendom. Stay faithful, get used to being on the fringes, live your faith and be glad for your suffering. There will be a rebound—and if history is any indication, it will be glorious.

    Yet another colossal, albeit not surprising, failure of leadership by the Alaska Delegation.

  • Terry Stires says:

    It’s almost 2023 and yet Watchman commenters are against interracial marriage. There’s a word for that: racism.

    • Mary says:

      Who said anything about interracial marriage? Racists always bring racism into an otherwise neutral agenda.

      I pushed on the highlighted word, “signed” and It’s green! Since when has DC been green in December?! My brother lives in Richmond, VA and he says all the leaves are off the trees and they have been off for awhile.

    You are a liar Terry Stires – and you know it.

      I wonder how much Soros pays these trolls (Terry Stires, Clark/clark, Jon, Whidbey Thedog and a couple of others – can’t think of their handles right now) and what type of AI program they use to make themselves sound half-way intelligent?

      • Terry Stires says:

        I make a ton of money from Soros, enough to pay for my son/daughter’s gender affirmation surgeries plus join Earth First! and the Freedom From Religion Foundation. No AI, just homegrown compassionate brilliance.

      Larand: The Respect for Marriage Act repeals the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), requires the U.S. federal government to recognize the validity of same-sex and interracial civil marriages in the United States, and protects religious liberty. ” according to Wikipedia.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Terry, go ahead and keep echoing the left’s narrative. Thanks to Obama and O’biden you get to keep repeating their rhetoric. In the end, God who is the Almighty Creator of All wins and he will destroy all that he has deemed abhorrent.

        Terry uses Wikipedia to base his logic on. That’s all I need to know.
