47 Republicans join in House bill to protect marriage equality

A total of 47 House Republicans voted in support of a marriage equality bill that passed on Tuesday.

The bill came in response to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas suggesting in a ruling last month that same-sex marriage rights could be changed and returned to states.

“The legislation, titled the Respect for Marriage Act, passed in a 267-157 vote, with 47 Republicans joining all Democrats in supporting the measure. Seven Republicans did not vote,” The Hill reported.

“The measure, which faces a shaky future in the 50-50 Senate, calls for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a bill former President Clinton signed into law in 1996 that recognized marriage as ‘only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife.’ The measure referred to the word spouse as ‘a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife,'” it added.

The new bill will now move to the Senate, where its outcome is uncertain.

The effort seeks to give Democrats some type of win while also making conservatives look bigoted for opposing same-sex marriage.
