Log Cabin Republicans Response to Supreme Court Marriage Decision

Log Cabin Republicans Response to Supreme Court Marriage Decision

Jun 26, 2015

Washington, D.C. — Moments ago, the Supreme Court of the United States issued its landmark ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges. In its 5-4 opinion, the court ruled that there is a constitutional right to marriage equality in all 50 states.

“Today the Supreme Court of the United States finally recognized what Log Cabin Republicans has long advocated for: the constitutional right of committed same-sex couples to engage in civil marriage partnerships,” Log Cabin Republicans National Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo stated. “At hand lies a tremendous opportunity for healing on all sides: Log Cabin Republicans encourages marriage equality advocates to resist the temptation of being ‘sore winners’ and respecting others who may not yet be at a place of acceptance; and opponents of marriage equality who can light a way out of the LGBT culture wars by recognizing that civil marriage for committed same-sex couples is no threat to any straight couple’s marriage, family, or faith. This is a watershed moment for the LGBT rights movement — one that had its genesis on the center-right — and Log Cabin Republicans congratulates our allied organizations, grassroots Chapter Leaders, and — especially — those committed same-sex couples who moved national sentiment on marriage equality so far, so fast simply by living their lives in quiet dignity.”
