CWN Editor's Note: In a 258-169 vote, the House of Representatives has passed the Senate’s version of the so-called Respect for Marriage Act, which prohibits states from defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman and raises significant religious liberty concerns.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops opposed the legislation, which President Biden is expected to sign into law.
