Rep. Sanders Statement on Same-sex Marriage Ruling

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Mike Sanders (R-Kingfisher) today released the following statement in response to the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges:

“The Supreme Court continues to disappoint those of us that expect rulings that are consistent with our history of law and traditions. Instead they have chosen to legislate from the bench, redefining the legal definition of marriage and giving same-sex couples an elevated status that should be reserved for a marriage between a man and a woman.

“Since the beginning of Western culture, based on biblical teachings, marriage has been defined as between a man and a woman. Western marriage law also followed that teaching, until today. In Oklahoma, we had an overwhelming majority who supported a state ban on same-sex marriage. What right does the federal government have to overturn state policies on almost every front?
