Rep. Amash Warns GOP About Conservative Youth Support for Gay Marriage

Trying to encourage them to think carefully about response to Supreme Court decision


Rep. Justin Amash does not want Republicans to say anything stupid about gay marriage.

During Wednesday morning's House Republican Conference meeting, according to multiple sources in the room, the Michigan Republican stood up and told his GOP colleagues they should watch what they say about gay marriage.

Amash was concerned that some Republicans might make the wrong remark just after the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Wednesday that the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional and that California's Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage, would be overturned.
