The Democrats told us the so-called “Respect for Marriage” law was meant to protect same-sex unions. That’s what they told us. But it turned out to be a lie.
And for the record, God has still not changed His definition of marriage – the institution that He created.
Instead, the law that President Biden signed on Tuesday is a Trojan horse designed to destroy religious institutions that oppose the LGBT agenda.
Consider this portion of the president’s remarks on the South Lawn of the White House:
When hospitals, libraries, and community centers are threatened and intimidated — (coughs) — excuse me — because they support LGBTQ children and families, we have to speak out. We must stop the hate and violence like we just saw in Colorado Springs, where a place of acceptance and celebration was targeted for violence and terror.
We need to challenge the hundreds of callous and cynical laws introduced in the states targeting transgender children, terrifying families and criminalizing doctors who give children the care they need. And we have to protect these children so they know they are loved and that we will stand up for them and so they can seek for themselves. (Applause.)
Folks, racism, antisemitism, homophobia, transphobia — they’re all connected. But the antidote to hate is love.President Biden
So if you oppose the medical mutilation of children the Biden Administration considers you to be a transphobic hater. If you complain to your school board about pornographic material in your child’s school library, you are a homophobic bigot.

“Today is a dark day for religious freedom,” said Family Research Council president Tony Perkins. “President Biden has now unleashed one of the greatest assaults on religious freedom in modern history.”

Perkins warned that the president had “succumbed to the temporal forces of the culture.”
“As Bible-believing Christians, we understand that whether by the White House, the Court, or by the Congress, truth cannot be altered — nor will our commitment to that truth,” Perkins said. “Marriage is an institution created by God for the well-being of men, women, children and society as a whole — it cannot be redesigned without impoverishing them all.”
