Religious Right Reacts To DOMA Repeal Vote
Yesterday, the Respect for Marriage Act, legislation that will repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act, passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee on a 10-8 vote, naturally spurring outrage among Religious Right activists. The vote was not a surprise to conservative groups, who told activists to be ready to fight the bill on the floor of the Senate.

Focus on the Familys political arm CitizenLink blasted the ironically labeled the Respect for Marriage Act and the Thomas More Society warned of the great legal problems, great confusion and the actual human beings who will be hurt if DOMA is no more.

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins told activists that if the Respect for Marriage Act passes, your tax dollars go to pay for the federal benefits and subsidies of gay couples because liberals wanted to award marriage to a small, vocal and already well off special interest group and consequently cause harm to society:
