Kansas Rep. Sharice Davids Moved To Tears By Respect For Marriage Act

Before that haters chime-in . . . Let's at least acknowledge that the progressive Kansas politico is ACCURATE when she notes bi-partisan support and the mainstream GOP mostly standing up for gay marriage as well.

Reality check . . . 

Anti-gay talking points aren't just out of the mainstream . . . Many people consider them hate speech now that LGBTQ+ rights are, in fact, the law of the land. 

From a REAL conservative perspective . . . The less government regulates what consenting adults do in their personal lives, the better.

Like it or not . . . Here's the word . . .

“It’s really heartwarming is the only thing I can think of right now,” U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids (D-Kansas) said.

Davids, the first openly LGBTQ person elected to congress from Kansas, expects a final vote to pass the Respect for Marriage Act on Thursday. It’s an echo of her political beginnings, watching the passage of Missouri’s same-sex marriage ban: 2004’s Amendment 2.

“I remember watching the results of that election. I remember watching on TV, and I just was crying because I was confronted with the fact that there were a lot of people who thought that someone like me shouldn’t be able to get married,” Davids said.

“One of the other things that’s been encouraging is that we’re seeing bipartisan support for this, and I think that’s really where the country is at,” Davids said.
