Statement from Sen. Josh Brecheen on Supreme Court Ruling against Oklahoma’s ban on same sex marriage

Sen. Josh Brecheen, R-Colgate, today issued the following statement in response to a ruling of the Supreme Court against Oklahoma’s ban on same-sex marriage.

“The voices of Oklahoma citizens have once again been ignored today by federal judges. Oklahoma voters made their beliefs very clear in 2004 when they overwhelmingly voted against legalizing gay marriage. The majority of us as Oklahomans believe in the traditional definition of marriage, which is between one man and one woman, and that strong belief should be honored.

“During the upcoming legislative session, I will once again join my conservative colleagues in fighting to protect marriage as a covenant between one man and one woman. Every option including the idea of modifying covenant marriage in protection of religious liberties must be considered.”
