Grothman Statement On Supreme Court Decision On Same-Sex Marriage
Washington, June 26, 2015
(Washington, D.C.) - Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wisconsin) released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled to allow same-sex marriage in all 50 states.
“I am deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision today to overturn same-sex marriage laws around the country,” said Congressman Grothman. “This would have been unthinkable 20 years ago, and as recently as three years ago President Obama said he was opposed to same-sex marriage. The American people are more than capable of making these decisions, just like we did in Wisconsin in 2006. Unfortunately, five Supreme Court justices clearly do not believe in the original intent of the 14th amendment as it was ratified in 1868. The contempt these Supreme Court justices have for the intent of our Constitution is shocking. This decision was partially influenced by recent public opinion, but the Constitution, as well as religious beliefs, should not change at the whim of public opinion.”
