Herger: Activist Ruling Just the Beginning of Fight to Protect Traditional Marriage
Congressman Wally Herger (R-CA) issued the following statement after a federal judge in California ruled that Proposition 8, which California voters passed in 2008 to ensure that marriage in the state consists of one man and one woman, is unconstitutional:
"This is simply another example of judicial activism and legislating from the bench. The will of the people, made clear at the ballot box, has been completely ignored. This fight is just beginning and we will do everything in our power to ensure that the will of the people will be upheld and that traditional marriage--defined for millennia and across the world as the union of one man and one woman--remains uncompromised and the central institution of the family in our society."
