Congressman Collins releases statement on same-sex marriage ruling

dougcollins      WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Doug Collins today issued the following statement in response to the ruling on Obergefell v. Hodges from the Supreme Court:
      “I am disappointed that the court has overstepped its boundaries once again. Many states have already voted to keep the definition of marriage to one man and one woman, and the court’s decision is a gross infringement on American democracy. The court should not have circumvented the will of the people, but as we saw with the King V. Burwell decision yesterday, they are more interested in legislating from the bench than letting the will of the people determine what our laws are going to be. Because this decision has robbed the American people of their freedom of choice, I strongly support a constitutional amendment defining marriage between one man and one woman.”
