King on Marriage: One Man and One Woman

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steve King released the following statement in response to oral arguments heard before the United States Supreme Court this week regarding California's Proposition 8 ban on same sex marriage and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) signed into law in 1996:

"The Constitution never contemplated marriage being anything other than between a man and a woman," said King. "And for the United States Supreme Court to come to an opposite conclusion would mean, I think, a real distortion of the Constitution, which is a contractual guarantee between each of the generations."
