FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Log Cabin Republicans Response to Supreme Court Marriage Decision
Washington, D.C. — Moments ago, the Supreme Court of the United States issued its landmark ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges. In its 5-4 opinion, the court ruled that there is a constitutional right to marriage equality in all 50 states.
Log Cabin Republicans National Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo stated. “At hand lies a tremendous opportunity for healing on all sides: Log Cabin Republicans encourages marriage equality advocates to resist the temptation of being ‘sore winners’ and respecting others who may not yet be at a place of acceptance; and opponents of marriage equality who can light a way out of the LGBT culture wars by recognizing that civil marriage for committed same-sex couples is no threat to any straight couple’s marriage, family, or faith. This is a watershed moment for the LGBT rights movement — one that had its genesis on the center-right — and Log Cabin Republicans congratulates our allied organizations, grassroots Chapter Leaders, and — especially — those committed same-sex couples who moved national sentiment on marriage equality so far, so fast simply by living their lives in quiet dignity.”
Log Cabin Republicans is the nation’s largest Republican organization representing LGBT conservatives and allies. The more than 30-year old organization has state and local chapters nationwide, a full-time office in Washington, D.C., a federal political action committee and state political action committees.
Log Cabin Republicans of Houston operate as regional chapter for Log Cabin Republicans in the Houston metropolitan and surrounding areas.
