As a Christian, I believe marriage is between one man and one woman. I believe that North Carolinians ought to be the ones deciding North Carolina values. It’s why I supported and voted for the Marriage Amendment.
For years, activists have tried to force individuals and states to accept same-sex marriage, and they have attempted to use the federal government to impose their agenda. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration has acquiesced and has stopped enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act.
The Defense of Marriage Act was enacted in 1996 to stop Big Government in Washington from redefining marriage and pushing its new definition on the States. The Defense of Marriage Act prevents places like San Francisco and New York City from imposing their ideas about marriage on North Carolina.
The Obama Administration’s actions not only are an assault on traditional marriage, but show a profound lack of respect for the Constitution and the Rule of Law.
If elected to the U.S. Senate, I pledge to do everything I can to stop bureaucrats and unelected judges from imposing their definition of marriage on the people of North Carolina.
