Roger Williams Statement on Gay Marriage Ruling

Jun 26, 2015
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Roger Williams (R-Texas) today released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that 14 states, including Texas, must permit same-sex marriages and recognize gay marriages from other states:

“I believe marriage is a God-ordained institution between one man and one woman and any other definition is fraudulent as the Bible points out in Genesis,” said Williams. “Today’s ruling is a federal intrusion on the states’ constitutional right to self-governance and will undermine the rights of people of faith. The Supreme Court is not supreme over religious teachings, and I will continue to protect religious freedoms from those who attempt to threaten it.”
