GOP Sen. Steve Daines: I’m A “No” On The Marriage Bill

The Hill reports:

Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) on Monday announced he is opposed to federal legislation that would protect the right to same-sex marriage, joining Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in speaking out against a bill passed by the House last week.

Daines, the junior senator for Montana, said in a statement he believes “marriage is between a man and a woman” and the push to pass the Respect for Marriage Act is a ploy from Democrats and Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“I’m opposed to this bill and believe it’s another attempt by Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats to distract the American people from the inflation crisis, energy crisis and the southern border crisis they’ve created,” Daines said.

Daines last appeared on JMG when he wondered “why we protect sea turtle eggs under the law but not human baby eggs.”

In May 2022, he was among five GOP Senators who authored a letter demanding that the FCC create a method for parents to block television shows that feature LGBTQ characters.

Last year, Daines lamented that Montana’s homemade meth industry has been taken over by Mexican cartels.

Gosh Sparklepants, where’s the legislation from your side to do something about inflation, energy or the border?

Oh, no, you misunderstand. He just brings those issues up because he wants to blame Biden and policies from the Democrats for them. His idea of “doing something about” those issues would be to defeat Democrats and put the Rethuglicans completely in charge. THEN things would get done!

Nobody expected Daines to be on our side, but consider his statement to be the first shot in the pressure campaign launched by NOM and Tony Perkins over the weekend.

If Steve does not believe in gay marriage, then he should not marry a man.

But for Steve to deny MY right to marry a man I love is just pure evil.

Motherfucker.

““marriage is between a man and a woman”” Until such time as he finds a younger, hotter woman or his wife is dying of cancer. In which case, it’s one marriage at a time.

Republicans believe marriage is one man + the one woman he chooses to be his third or fourth wife.

More Christian Nationalism. He’s trying to force those who don’t subscribe to his religious beliefs to live under them. These people don’t believe in freedom, but rather religious tyranny.

It’s fucking infuriating that they are essentially voting against not just the gays, but interracial marriages too.
