Senate President Pro Tem Comments on Gay Marriage Ruling


Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman comments on U.S. Senior District Judge Terence Kern’s ruling today regarding Oklahoma’s constitutional ban on gay marriage, which was approved by 76 percent of Oklahoma voters in 2004.

“We are disappointed in this judge’s ruling as the people of Oklahoma overwhelmingly made their beliefs on this issue known at the ballot box. This is an unfortunate example of the federal government once again overstepping its bounds and asserting its will on the people of Oklahoma. This ruling will be appealed, and I hope the federal courts will recognize Oklahoma’s sovereignty on this issue.”
