Today, Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Bill Flores (R-TX) released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges:
“Today the Supreme Court overstepped its authority in another unfortunate display of judicial activism. With the Constitution silent on the question of marriage, this issue should be decided by the American people – not an activist Court. Millions of Americans have voted to preserve traditional marriage, with the knowledge that moms and dads raising kids in a stable home is essential to healthy communities and a healthy nation. I remain committed to restoring the right of Americans to decide this question for themselves, at the ballot box or through their state legislature. The first step is protecting the rights of religious organizations and schools to live according to their beliefs without facing retribution from the federal government.”
