Palazzo Opposes Sham Democrat Marriage Bill

Washington, DC - Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-4) voted in opposition of H.R. 8404, the Respect for Marriage Act, which is an unnecessary piece of legislation with the sole objective to delegitimize the United States Supreme Court and its previous decision to make all marriages, regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin, legal.

"Instead of working towards bipartisan legislation to help the American people through President Biden's numerous and disastrous crises, Democrats in Congress are determined to continue pushing through redundant legislation for non-issues," said Congressman Palazzo. "H.R. 8404 is a messaging bill put forth by my Democrat colleagues to distract the country from the problems that really matter like inflation, open borders, and rising violent crime. It's time they get serious about their jobs here in Congress. All that to say, as a practicing and devout Christian, and unlike what this legislation eludes to, I am fully of the belief that marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman."

Recent Democrat sponsored legislation and Executive Orders from President Biden have sought to invalidate decisions previously made by the Supreme Court because they do not bend to the beliefs of the left. H.R. 8404 passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 267 to 157.
