The statement refers to male-female unions as “natural” marriages and says they are “part of the very fabric of a free society” — not that any same-sex couples are keeping different-sex couples from marrying. It also claims that if the Respect for Marriage Act becomes law, “if any state recognized polyamorous marriages, the federal government would be forced to recognize them as well (as a matter of federal law).” Again, no state recognizes such marriages.”
