Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
Please pray today for our country as the Senate votes today for a final vote of the "Respect for Marriage Act" which is not a respect for marriage but a trampling of the traditional family and religious freedom to believe and embrace this biblical teaching of one man and one woman equals marriage.
"Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh." Genesis 2:24
Monday’s vote paves the way for a final vote in the Senate, which is scheduled for today and requires 60 “yes” votes, according to the U.S. Senate Periodical Press Gallery.
The RMA would make the redefinition of marriage the law of the land, even in the event that the Supreme Court overturns its 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision that mandates legal recognition of same-sex “marriage” nationwide.
The bill would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996, which federally recognized marriage as a union between one man and one woman and the guaranteed the right of states to uphold traditional marriage, and instead would require the federal government and all 50 states to recognize homosexual “marriages” and any other marriages lawfully performed in any state.
It also poses grave threats to religious freedom, as numerous social conservative and religious liberty groups have repeatedly warned.
The Senate will vote today on amendments offered by Republican Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, James Lankford of Oklahoma, and Marco Rubio of Florida designed to blunt the bill’s impact on religious freedom.
The Lankford and Rubio Amendments each require a majority vote for passage. The Lee Amendment, the most comprehensive of the three, needs 60 votes, effectively dooming its passage in the evenly-divided Senate.

The book of fiction... 1984 by George Orwell is about a communist tyrannical world .....it is no longer fiction......we are now living in it.....which Our Lady of Fatima predicted as a chastisement for the crimes of the world....may we pray to Her for help.
Please pray for a miracle.
Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us!
