Same-sex marriage foe finds “fairly good news” in today’s Supreme Court rulings

June 26, 2013 By

A man who has led the opposition to same-sex marriage in Iowa sees “good news” in today’s U.S. Supreme Court rulings. Bob Vander Plaats says the court ruled the federal government must recognize same-sex unions if states sanction them, but the justices did not curtail the rights of states to ban gay marriage if they choose.

“The initial reaction was probably fairly good news, meaning the court is saying that the states have the right to define what marriage is and the Iowa people have yet to decide,” Vander Plaats says.
