DeMaio to Republican Party: “Accept marriage equality – and move on”

San Diego’s own Carl DeMaio addresses the Republican Party as the news from The Supreme Court of the United States rules in favor of marriage equality over all 50 states.

In his statement, Mr. DeMaio (R) implores his party to accept the SCOTUS decision and honor the Golden Rule:

“Today’s decision establishing marriage equality is a win for all Americans who follow the Golden Rule – namely that we should treat others as you would have them treat you.

Opposition to gay marriage has cost the Republican Party supporters – particularly among the younger generation.

This decision provides a reflection point for the Republican Party. With today’s decision now the law of the land, I encourage leaders in the Republican Party to move on and embrace the Golden Rule of treating everyone with respect and dignity and standing for the simple notion that everyone is equal in the eyes of the law.”

As a matter of full disclosure, Hale Media Publisher Johnathan Hale is married to Carl DeMaio.
