Thiesfeldt And Baldwin On Supreme Court Same Sex Marriage Ruling
State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt says he strongly disagrees with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision Friday ruling same sex marriage is legal across the country. He says there is no authority under the U.S. Constitution for the court to define marriage for the nation. The state lawmaker from Fond du Lac then announced he will be calling for an end to Wisconsin’s Domestic Partnership Registry. He will ask that the repeal be included in the state budget. The registry was created in Governor Jim Doyle’s state budget in 2009 and Thiesfeldt says it would be fitting that it be repealed in the budget. He says the Domestic Partneship Law is clearly just ‘marriage lite.’ U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin meanwhile hailed the high court’s decision saying, “Love is love, family is family, and discriminating against anyone’s love, against anyone’s family, is simply wrong.” For more of Senator Baldwin’s statement click here.
