McConnell on the Supreme Court’s Marriage Ruling

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement today regarding the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obergefell v. Hodges:

“I disagree with the Court’s ruling. Regardless of one's personal view on this issue, the American people, through the democratic process, should be able to determine the meaning of this bedrock institution in our society.

“I also believe that America is big enough to accommodate the views of all citizens—that’s why going forward I hope the courts will continue to defend the important principle of religious liberty for all, regardless of their views on marriage.”
