Senate Passes Respect for Marriage Act; California Lawmakers Say More is Needed

Under the Respect for Marriage Act, all states must accept same-sex and multiracial weddings.

“We won history.” It’s a promise that the US would defend the right to marry “Equality California executive director Tony Huang.”

If the Supreme Court overturns Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalised same-sex marriage in 2015, the statute safeguards same-sex marriages.

“When the Dobbs decision came out, and particularly when Justice Thomas called out the LGBTQ community on how Obergefell may have been wrongly determined,” Huang added.

San Francisco Pride was taken aback by the decision. “I believe they’re going to come for us,” Ana Lazo stated.

People Pressured Congress to Approve Safeguards

“This is really quite a historic milestone to have federal legislation clearly establishing same-sex marriage rights across the nation,” said San Jose State University political science professor Dr. Melinda Jackson.

“A federal law that applies in every state that recognises same-sex marriage is a considerably better safeguard than a Supreme Court judgement.”

Some California politicians believe more should be done. State Senator Scott Wiener said Prop 8 should be removed from the constitution.

Wiener advised voters to abolish a constitutional amendment in 2024.
