Warner, Kaine on same sex marriage case

congressU.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA) released the following statement in response to today’s Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling to strike down Virginia’s ban on same sex marriage in Bostic v. Rainey:

“I am so happy that yet another federal court agrees that Virginia’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional,” Sen. Warner said. “Allowing people to marry who they love is the right thing to do, and it also strengthens our families and our communities. Virginia should be a welcoming place for all, and I am very pleased at the rapid progress toward marriage equality that we’re seeing in Virginia and around the country.”

 

U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement in response to today’s Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling to strike down Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage in Bostic v. Rainey:

“Today’s decision is a victory for the Virginia value of equality. I campaigned against the ballot initiative banning same-sex marriage in 2006 and was very disappointed when it passed. I am gratified that the 4th Circuit Court has recognized that this discriminatory provision has no rightful place in the Virginia Constitution.”
