CURE Leadership Sign Onto Memo Opposing the So-Called 'Respect for Marriage Act'
For immediate release: July 26, 2022
CURE Founder and President Star Parker, as well as Vice President for Government Relations & Coalitions Marty Dannenfelser and CURE Board Member Ken Blackwell, signed the Conservative Action Project’s memo entitled “Conservatives Must Reject the So-Called ‘Respect for Marriage Act.'”
“The inaptly-named Respect for Marriage Act seeks to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 (DOMA) and codify the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) to legalize same-sex marriage. Such a troublesome policy pronouncement by Congress in favor of same-sex marriage would not only legislate a harmful, anti-family policy but also would unleash further religious freedom violations, threaten the tax-exempt status of religious entities, and wrongly marginalize social conservatives.”
