BREAKING: Biden Signs Same-Sex Marriage Bill
New law targets faith-based organizations just before Christmas
President Biden just signed H.R. 8404 into law, codifying same-sex marriage in federal law and opening the door to discrimination against people of faith. During his address, President Biden also called for passage of the failed Equality Act, which would go even further in punishing Americans for living according to their convictions.
Craig DeRoche, President & CEO at Family Policy Alliance, released the following statement:
“For the last two years, we’ve seen repeatedly how the Biden Administration pits itself against the American people. Today, President Biden has gone even further by positioning himself against people of faith at Christmastime.
“The so-called religious freedom protections contained within this bill are little more than fig leaves. In reality, this bill could force faith-based adoption agencies to close, silence anyone with a moral objection to same-sex marriage, and target those who dare to disagree.
“While the Biden Administration and their allies in Congress made this signing ceremony about equality, they fail to understand that Americans with sincerely held religious beliefs on marriage will not waiver in their convictions –regardless of the passage of this new law. In the name of acceptance, the Biden Administration has chosen to alienate millions of Americans.”
