EXCLUSIVE: A conservative think tank is spending more than $1 million to run ads during NFL and college football games over the Thanksgiving holiday with the hopes of keeping a new bill codifying same-sex marriage out of the end zone in the Senate next week, at least until lawmakers add new religious liberty protections to the bill.

The Heritage Foundation's campaign is being launched ahead of a final vote in the Senate on Monday to pass the Respect for Marriage Act, which would codify the right to same-sex marriage.

Heritage and other conservatives say the bill is deceptively named and would not deliver new rights to same-sex couples and that it leaves people of faith vulnerable to litigation and other forms retaliation. 

 

"America’s religious liberty is under attack with this impending vote in the Senate," said Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts. "This legislation does not add one additional benefit to same-sex couples in the United States; it’s an attack that sets the stage to take rights away from people of faith. What it does accomplish is deputizing radical activists to target Americans who cannot in good faith endorse anything other than a man-woman marriage. The American people deserve all the facts."

 

The group accuses Democrat lawmakers of "hurrying to cram through their far-left agenda" before the new Congress next year, when the GOP will be in the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Heritage says the 50 Senate Democrats and 12 Republicans who voted to advance the bill last week are "sneaking" through a bill that would "expose religious schools and nonprofits to lawsuits" and worries the law could give the IRS a basis for stripping the tax-exempt status of dissenting religious groups.

Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., has said it would allow activists to sue dissenting faith-based groups in an effort to "force them to abandon their deeply held beliefs about marriage or close their doors.":snip:

Any Leftist idea starts out voluntary,but soon  becomes mandatory.  The USSR/PRC/Cuba/Kampuchea was  a Feature not a Bug of Leftist ideology.

Heritage Foundation Launches $1.3 Million Ad Campaign to Expose Same-Sex Marriage Bill’s Religious Liberty Threat

:snip:

“The bill puts a target on the backs of people of faith who believe that marriage is between one man and one woman, opening individuals and organizations to legal action if they hold true to their religious beliefs about marriage,” Heritage said in a press release Wednesday. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)  

The bill goes far beyond just codifying same-sex marriage and “would expose religious schools and nonprofits to lawsuits and attacks from the [Internal Revenue Service] just because they believe in traditional marriage,” the Heritage ad warns.
