"My strong, sincerely-held belief is that marriage is a union between one man and one woman. The Supreme Court should have upheld the 10th Amendment of the Constitution, and left this principled issue to the voters and their elected representatives in each state."

Today the U.S. Supreme Court overturned traditional marriage laws and constitutional amendments nationwide. U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (R-Texas), a pro-family conservative, issued the following statement: 

"My strong, sincerely-held belief is that marriage is a union between one man and one woman. The Supreme Court should have upheld the 10th Amendment of the Constitution, and left this principled issue to the voters and their elected representatives in each state."

BACKGROUND: In a sharply divided 5-4 decision, The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the 14th Amendment requires all states issue a marriage license to same sex couples and recognize out of state same sex marriages. Ten years ago, Texas voters overwhelming voted to add an amendment to the Texas Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman.
