Smith on Supreme Court Marriage Ruling
Congressman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) released the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges.
Congressman Smith: “I am disappointed the Supreme Court chose not to respect the will of millions of Americans in states like Texas. Throughout history, marriage between a man and a woman has been the cement that has held civilizations together. Many Texans’ views are shaped by their faith and deeply-held religious beliefs. We must ensure religious freedoms, as guaranteed in the Constitution, continue to be protected.”
