Your Representative’s View on DOMA – Mike Ross, Democrat, Arkansas.
From Arkansas Representative, Mike Ross, Democrat:
…please know that I support the belief that marriage is between one man and one woman. In 1997, I joined my colleagues in the Arkansas State Legislature to enact two state laws that prohibit recognition of same-sex marriages in our state, and I voted for the Federal Marriage Amendment every time it has come before the United States House of Representatives for a vote.
On July 18, 2006, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on H.J.RES.88, which would have created an amendment to the U.S. Constitution declaring that marriage in the United States be only between a man and a woman.
I voted in favor of this amendment; however, it failed to receive the necessary two-thirds support to pass.
My strong belief that marriage should be between one man and one woman is among the family values that I was raised on and still believe in. Please know I will continue to vote to ban gay marriage and only recognize marriage between one man and one woman, just as I have done many times before.
Legislating belief is a disgusting way to legislate. How about we start legislating facts? Agree? Contact Mike Ross:
