Alliance Defense Fund On DOMA Ruling

“Under this rationale, if just one state decided to accept polygamy, the federal government and perhaps other states would be forced to accept it, too. The federal government had the right to step in against polygamy at one time in our nation’s history, and it has the right to step in against this attempt at marriage redefinition as well. The First Circuit’s support of this same principle suggests that it is constitutional for California’s voters to enact Proposition 8 — and that all of the other state constitutional amendments and statutes defining marriage as a man and a woman are constitutional as well.” – Alliance Defense Fund attorney Dale Schowengerdt.
