In just a couple of hours, the Senate is gearing up for a final vote on the misnamed “Respect for Marriage Act.” The vote is set to begin at 3:30 p.m. EST with the full Senate voting on the First Amendment Defense Act amendment from Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and two other amendments from Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
Afterward, a final vote on the Respect for Marriage Act will likely take place with a 60-vote threshold required for passage. The stakes are high, but it’s not too late for a final “push” of opposition to quash the bill.

It seems that many people, especially in the infamous Gen Z category, have grown deaf to many of the religious liberty concerns latent in legal debates surrounding same-sex marriage, gender, and more.
