Twelve Republicans in the U.S. Senate just joined the extreme left and voted in favor of the radical gay agenda this week.

In a great defeat for conservatism, the Democrats voted to enshrine gay marriage into federal law by a vote of 62 to 37. That means 12 Republican senators crossed the aisle to join the left and standing against traditional marriage.

According to Life Site News:

Twelve Republican senators joined with all Democrats to move forward on the bill, “Respect for Marriage Act,” including: Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Rob Portman of Ohio, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Joni Ernst of Iowa, Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Dan Sullivan of Alaska, and Todd Young of Indiana. Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska did not vote.

Democrats needed the support of 10 Republicans to overcome the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold.

The bill is now on a glide path to final passage, which requires just 51 votes and is likely to come after the Senate’s Thanksgiving recess, CNN reported.

Today’s vote came despite the objections of many of the most prominent conservative groups in the U.S., including the Heritage Foundation and Alliance Defending Freedom, the opposition of thousands of Christian churches and institutions, and the overwhelming majority of Republican voters who oppose federal legislation to codify homosexual “marriage.”

The Respect of Marriage Act makes same-sex “marriage” the law of the land, ensuring that all 50 states must recognize such unions, regardless of state laws, in the event the Supreme Court overturns its 2015 decision, Obergefell v. Hodges, which mandates legal recognition of same-sex “marriage” nationwide.

The bill also poses grave threats to religious freedom, as numerous social conservative and religious liberty organizations have repeatedly warned.

Folks, just because the GOP is taking control of the House, don’t imagine that we can relax.

We won’t be able to stop these outrages by looking the other way.
