WASHINGTON -- Wednesday's “ruling is a victory of conservative principles and admonishment of government overreach,” says Gregory T. Angelo, executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans, the nation’s largest Republican organization for gay conservatives and their allies, following the U.S. Supreme Court’s concurrent rulings on the Federal Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8.
“Civil marriage strengthens families, supports stability, and allows greater opportunity for couples to live without the crutch of government assistance, and now with Section 3 of DOMA rightly relegated to the dustbin of history, same-sex couples in civil marriage partnerships in those states that allow it can engage in the full spectrum of federal rights previously denied them,” Mr. Angelo continues.
“Now the fight continues in the states, and Log Cabin Republicans will continue to be on the front lines to take the conservative case for marriage to Republicans across the nation. History is on our side, and the wind is at our backs. We’re not done yet - not by a long shot,” he adds.
