LGBTQ+ politicians, civil rights activists, and allies are thrilled with the U.S. Senate’s passage Tuesday of the Respect for Marriage Act, which will write marriage equality into federal law and protect it from being rescinded by the Supreme Court.The House of Representatives has already approved the bill, but since the Senate amended it with a religious freedom provision, it has to go back to the House for another vote.
If the House OK’s it, it will go to President Joe Biden, who had pledged to sign it into law.Those who praised the Senate vote also noted that there is more to do for LGBTQ+ rights, such as passing the Equality Act, which would guarantee equal rights nationwide, and protecting transgender Americans.
A sample of statements released after the vote:Kelley Robinson, president of the Human Rights Campaign: “Today love won. This is a historic day, marking a much-needed victory for our community.
