Supporters of gay marriage wave the rainbow flag after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the U.S. Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry at the Supreme Court in Washington, June 26, 2015. The court ruled 5-4 that the Constitution's guarantees of due process and equal protection under the law mean that states cannot ban same-sex marriages. With the ruling, gay marriage will become legal in all 50 states. | Reuters/Joshua Roberts

The House on Tuesday passed a bill codifying federal "protections" for sodomite "marriage" amid growing concern among some lawmakers and advocates that the Supreme Court could revisit its landmark 2015 decision.

After the Supreme Court’s decision to nullify federal abortion "protections", House Democrats are pushing to protect other "rights" they believe were left vulnerable following the court's overturning of Roe v. Wade.

All 220 House Democrats voted in favor of the Respect for Marriage Act on Tuesday, with 47 Republicans also in support. Because of the Senate's filibuster rules, 60 votes are needed to get the act through Congress. So far, though, no concurrent bill has been introduced in the Senate.
