Why Are There No DINOs? The Shameful Role of RINOs and CINOs in the GOP-Engineered Destruction of Marriage

No one was surprised when the misnamed Respect for Marriage Act passed in the House by a 267–157 vote last July. The Democrats held the chamber and voted as a bloc. Most conservatives, however, were startled when the same bill recently passed the filibuster hurdle in the Senate, where the Democrats were short ten votes to bring the measure before the full Senate for approval.

The House bill had counted on the scandalous support of 47 Republican representatives who broke with their party’s platform and principles to pass this bill, which codifies same-sex “marriage” into federal law. The Senate vote for cloture found not the needed ten but twelve Republican votes to set the bill up for almost certain passage and the signature of “Catholic” President Joe Biden.

The Curse of the RINOs

The dramatic vote for same-sex “marriage” highlights the weakness of conservatives on crucial matters like this one. The bill’s passage was solely in the hands of the Republican Party. One word from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell demanding unity should have been enough to stop it cold. However, the Republican Party threw away its chance to defeat it and once more betrayed the trust of millions of social conservatives who have rescued them from defeat.

The Republicans have always been plagued by the so-called RINOs—Republicans In Name Only. These liberals in conservative clothing cast their votes with the other side, especially when moral issues are at stake. They take victory away from the pro-life and pro-family cause.

The Senate RINOs always include Sen. Susan Collins (Me.), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and often Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah). Nine others can now be added to this list of shame: Sen. Roy Blunt (Mo.); Sens. Richard Burr and Thom Tillis (N.C.); Sen. Shelley Capito (W.V.); Sen. Joni Ernst (Iowa); Sen. Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.); Sen. Dan Sullivan (Alaska); Sen. Rob Portman (Ohio); and Sen. Todd Young (Ind.). It is worthwhile noting that Senators Blunt, Burr and Portman are leaving office in January and had nothing to lose by voting against the measure in this lame-duck session.
