Polis praises Obama decision on marriage
In response to the Obama Administration’s conclusion that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage (Act) is unconstitutional, Congressman Jared Polis released the following statement.
“I applaud the Administration for finally recognizing what my colleagues and I have long criticized—that this is an unconstitutional law.
I am confident that today’s decision will secure a path to equality for every American wishing to participate in the tradition of marriage. To deny people the ability to officially acknowledge their relationship and feel welcomed as partners only for being LGBT is absurd and today’s decision confirms this. It is now an urgent call for us in Congress to address this violation of the constitution and repeal this abhorrent law.”
