GOP Lawmaker Says Constitutional Amendment Banning Gay Marriage Would Void Recent SCOTUS Decision

Conservatives not giving up


WASHINGTON, June 27 (UPI) — The U.S. Constitution must be changed to void the Supreme Court ruling that said the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional, a Republican lawmaker said.

"A narrow radical majority of the court has substituted their personal views for the constitutional decisions of the American voters and their elected representatives," Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., told reporters after the high court ruled the 1996 act, which barred same-sex married couples from receiving federal marital benefits, was unconstitutional.
