    16 Comments On Same Sex Marriages From Republicans That I Can't Believe I Am Reading In 2022

    I can't believe people still use the excuse of faith to deny basic human rights.

    The year is 2022. We pride ourselves on being woke human beings and believe that we know better than the previous generation's bigotry. Wait a minute, though! Read these comments made by Republicans on marriage equality. Maybe we aren't living in 2022 after all...

    157 Republicans just voted AGAINST codifying marriage equality for LGBTQ+ and interracial couples. In the year 2022. Republicans’ backward and extreme agenda cannot be our future.

    3. When Ben Shapiro tweeted that the "founders would have died laughing" about same-sex marriages.

    There is no Constitutional "right" for two men or two women to marry one another; the founders would have died laughing. There is no moral "right" to government approval for whatever sexual relationships you form. That doesn't mean a legal bar to such activity. https://t.co/ea773HWOsO

    I’m also voting NO on another pointless Democrat fear mongering bill. Just like gay marriage, no one is trying to take away contraceptives, and Dems are creating a fake W. These bills are shiny objects to rile up voters bc Dems are purposely destroying our country. https://t.co/QANY58ogHn
