Call To Action: Tell Congress Not To Redefine Marriage!

Our friends at FRC Action, the political arm of the Family Research Council, are leading a coalition to oppose a Democrat-sponsored redefinition of marriage. Apparently, the lesson Democrats took from last week’s election was to get as much done now before the new Congress (and divided party control) come to Washington.

FRC Action has advised us that on Monday night, as the Senate reconvened for the first time since the election, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced that one of the Democrats’ first orders of business is to ram through a redefinition of marriage bill that will go much further than the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision that mandated same-sex marriage be legally recognized in every state!

They have asked us to spread the word about this attack on traditional Judeo-Christian values and morality and urge CHQ readers and friends to take a moment right now to use the FRC’s contact your legislator tool to contact your senators.

Tell them that a vote to redefine marriage, no matter how the bill may be amended, will go much further than Obergefell—it will further threaten religious freedom by undermining the ability of Americans to live out their sincerely-held beliefs. As we’ve already seen, redefining marriage harms children and leads to more indoctrination by the Left.

Two “Republicans” Senators, Susan Collins of Maine and Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina, have joined with Far Left Democrat Tammy Baldwin of Illinois to propose amendments to the original Democrat bill. The Baldwin-Collins-Tillis text would go much further than affirming “the status quo” on same-sex marriage. It would still:

  • · further exacerbate already-existing attacks on religious liberty due to the legalization of same-sex marriage,

  • legislatively cement anti-family policies harmful to children,

  • make faith-based adoption and foster-care agencies a greater target for frivolous litigation, curtailing or ending their ability to help children find homes,

  • threaten the tax-exempt status of adoption and foster care agencies and other vitally needed non-profit organizations, whether religious or secular, and

  • tacitly vilify millions of Americans who believe in natural marriage by labeling that belief “sex discrimination,” tantamount to racism.

If anything has been made clear over the past decade, it is that the legitimization of same-sex marriage has not stopped there; it has led to attacks on those who disagree and has spread to other areas of culture. The attacks on parental authority and the denigration of concerned parents at school board meetings are only the latest manifestation of a trend that was accelerated by the legitimization of same-sex marriage.

Will you take a moment right now and contact your senators to ask them NOT to support the bill, even as amended?

Thank you! Republican senators are being targeted for calls by the left and lobbied by their colleagues to support this harmful bill. Some have indicated they believe it will be easier to pass when they return. It’s urgent that they hear from people like you.

Senate Democrats need 10 Republicans to cross the aisle and vote to redefine marriage. The following Republicans have indicated publicly that they are supportive of the substitute amendment:

Sen. Susan Collins (Maine)

Sen. Rob Portman (Ohio)

Sen. Thom Tillis (N.C.)

Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) (“Romney told TIME […] that he’s been working with the bill’s negotiators on ’religious liberty provisions’ and said his suggestions have ’by and large been included.’ While he declined to say how he plans to vote, he added that he’s ’pleased with the progress that has been made.’”)

Based on private conversations reported by FRC Action several more may be considering it in the “lame duck” (lots of bad stuff happens when Congress returns after the November election).

Forty-seven House Republicans joined all House Democrats in voting to redefine marriage on Tuesday, July 19th:


Rep. Ken Calvert

Rep. Mike Garcia

Rep. Darrell Issa

Rep. Jay Obernolte

Rep. David Valadao


Rep. Kat Cammack

First Squawk @FirstSquawk 120 FIRMS AFFILIATED WITH FTX ARE FILING FOR BANKRUPTCY. Why is it that anytime there is major corruption the democrats are in it right up to their necks.


Many Republicans are too afraid of the left on issues like this. Many of them are also not conservatives. Most of the people on this list, if not all of them, are moderates and RINOs. Keep electing folks like this if you want stuff like this to keep happening. We need more conservative Republicans in Congress, not just more Republicans in Congress. Capiche! (Not sure of the spelling. Sorry.)


Luckily, Kinzinger "retired."

Sadly it has no happened. The RINO Republicans have finally betrayed us. They got the 62 votes as RINO' s said no to religious freedom and passed it anyways. So we were stabbed in the back. One of them was traitor Mitt Romney who as governor of Massachusetts in 2002-2006 stood out and protected marriage against the homosexual agenda. He sure has changed since leaving the MA statehouse. This whole mess began in MA when false/ phony marriage was imposed on the state from the bench.

I have always been suspicious of so called conservatives who come out and say though conservative they are SOCIALLY LIBERAL. That was code for supporting conservative economic ideas and gun rights while at t…

could be wrong but doesn’t it still needs 60 votes to get past the filibuster? It’s not a budget item which you can use reconciliation on. I can’t believe they’re going to get 60 votes for it. When you read the names of the Senators listed in the article that might come out to 56 or 57 but 56 or 57 is not 60. I can’t imagine that the people in West Virginia voting for this or wanting it, so I can’t believe Manchin would support it. Not when he’s due for reelection in 2024
