My Faith Votes: Respect for Marriage Act a ‘sinister trick’ to attack Americans who hold a biblical worldview
DALLAS — Jason Yates, CEO of My Faith Votes, issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate passed the Respect for Marriage Act:
“Make no mistake, when the so-called Respect for Marriage Act (RFMA) is signed into law it will grant no new rights to LGBTQ individuals. Instead, it is a sinister trick designed to intimidate, silence, and shut out of the public square any American who disagrees with same-sex marriage on the basis of sincerely held religious beliefs. Religious freedom, a cornerstone of our republic, will face serious threats. Religious institutions like churches, Christian colleges, faith-based nonprofit organizations, and Christian small businesses will undoubtedly face unending lawsuits and government harassment like IRS investigations for adhering to a biblical worldview. Perhaps this is why the Biden administration is amassing a small army of 87,000 new IRS agents.”
