Traditional one-man, one-woman marriage is unconstitutional? It’s a threat to national security? These are some of the descriptions you’ll hear as Jim reviews news stories that describe the intensity of the attack on traditional marriage and where this battle is really heading.

Getting particular attention is S.598, The Respect for Marriage Act, a bill that if passed, would revoke the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). A vote on this act will take place on Thursday, November 2nd by the Senate Judiciary Committee and with the contact information below, you can let your voice impact this critical vote.
