LIZ WHEELER: Twelve Republican Senators Betrayed The Institution Of Marriage
*** begin quote ***
First, the bill amounts to a direct assault upon religious liberty. The anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, anti-religion, anti-God, secular mob will undoubtedly use this law to target people of faith. They will target non-profit organizations. They will target churches. They will target religious schools. You won’t be able to conduct business under the premise of the biblical definition of marriage or you will likely come under fire. As Rachel Bovard at the Conservative Partnership Institute notes, it even creates a cultural justification for market institutions such as banks to discriminate against people with traditional views, dovetailing effectively with the advent of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) social credit scores that can and are being utilized to reduce or eliminate one’s access to financial services based upon social values.

Third — and perhaps most importantly — the bill will inherently become a legal catch-all for the Democratic Party’s radical progressive agenda, which hinges upon the deliberate Marxist goal of destroying the nuclear family and ultimately deconstructing our society’s moral fiber.

I fail to understand how the Gooferment — at any level — can “regulate” “marriage”.
We currently have partnership law. Anyone can form a legal partnership.
Where in the Constitution is there a Federal enumerated power to regulate “marriage”?
Just like SCOTUS said the Federal Gooferment has no role in aboirtion, so to it needs to declare the legislation as unconstitutional.
