Decision "Weakens the Voice of "We the People'"

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

"I am disappointed to hear the Supreme Court's decision to overturn a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act, signed into law by Bill Clinton, which protects the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. Their refusal to affirm the decision of a majority of voters in California and uphold Proposition 8 is also dispiriting, as it weakens the voice of "we the people."

"The family bond of a mother and a father is foundational to society and sacred to many. Decisions to distort the tradition and definition of marriage should not be up to activist judges without recourse by the citizens of the nation or the various states."
