Issue Position: Marriage Protection

Issue Position

Congressman Poe believes judges must not be allowed to change the traditional definition of "marriage" (as a union between a man and a woman) against the will of the people. As we have seen, recent referendums in Hawaii, Nevada, Nebraska, and Missouri have shown that more than 70% of voters support the traditional definition of marriage.

Congressman Poe supports whatever measures are necessary to preserve the definition of marriage as a union between one man and one woman. If a Constitutional amendment is the only way to do this, then he will support a carefully worded amendment for this purpose.
