Republicans were already divided over the disappointing Midterm election results.
Now the Party is facing further strife and chaos.
And that’s because of this RINO betrayal that saw 12 Republicans pull off the unthinkable.
How many RINOs does it take to betray conservative voters?
The Senate passed a nationwide homosexual marriage mandate, with 12 Republicans joining 49 Democrats to put Christians in the crosshairs of the woke mob and radical pro-homosexual government bureaucrats.
The Daily Wire reported the 12 RINOs who voted for this attack on religious liberty were:
Roy Blunt (MO), Richard Burr (NC), Shelley Moore Capito (WV), Susan Collins (ME), Todd Young (IN), Joni Ernst (IA), Cynthia Lummis (WY), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rob Portman (OH), Mitt Romney (UT), Dan Sullivan (AK), and Thom Tillis (NC).
Utah RINO Mitt Romney falsely claimed that the legislation protected Christians from woke activists and bureaucrats.
“This legislation provides important protections for religious liberty — measures which are particularly important to protect the religious freedoms of our faith-based institutions,” Romney said in a statement. “While I believe in traditional marriage, Obergefell is and has been the law of the land upon which LGBTQ individuals have relied. This legislation provides certainty to many LGBTQ Americans, and it signals that Congress — and I — esteem and love all of our fellow Americans equally.”
That was not true at all.
Senate declares open season on Christians
Romney’s fellow Utah Senator Mike Lee offered up an amendment to protect the rights of religious institutions, churches, nonprofits, and Christian business owners from any government sanctions by refusing to participate in homosexual wedding ceremonies.
Lee argued if the bill’s sponsors claimed the legislation protected religious liberty, then they should put it in writing.
“Instead of subjecting churches, religious nonprofits, and persons of conscience to undue scrutiny or punishment by the federal government because of their views on marriage, we should make explicitly clear that this legislation does not constitute a national policy endorsing a particular view of marriage that threatens the tax-exempt status of faith-based nonprofits,” Lee explained. “As we move forward, let us be sure to keep churches, religious charities, and religious universities out of litigation in the first instance.”
The Senate rejected Lee’s amendment.
Missouri Senator Josh Hawley echoed Lee’s concern that this homosexual marriage mandate would infringe on the rights of Americans of faith.
“I think the Constitution is silent on this issue,” Hawley told reporters. “Churches and religious organizations and religious persons I think will have their liberties infringed.”
This latest sellout was another example of Republican elites showing nothing but contempt for their base.
Over the last year, RINOs colluded with Joe Biden to ban and confiscate firearms, impose the Green New Deal, funnel hundreds of millions in bailouts to favored corporations, and now put Christians in the crosshairs of woke bureaucrats and activists.
