Democrats’ Proposal to Codify Same-Sex Civil Marriage Poses Religious-Freedom Issues, Critics Say

Jacquelyn MartinRoger Severino, vice president of domestic policy at the Heritage Foundation, is shown above in 2018 at the office of Health and Human Services in Washington. He said the Respect for Marriage bill “will do nothing on the ground with respect to same-sex marriage benefits and privileges, so they’re attacking a problem that doesn’t exist in order to take a swipe at people of faith.”

The push to solidify support comes in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health decision.
