(Atlanta, GA) In response to the United States Supreme Court’s ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional, Georgia Republican Party Chairman John Padgett issued the following statements:
“The Georgia Republican Party is one of inclusion, tolerance, and respect. But we are also a Party of principle and purpose. While disappointed in today’s decision by the United States Supreme Court to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, the Georgia Republican Party will not back down in our efforts to promote, protect, and preserve traditional marriage for future generations.
“Marriage is a sacred institution created by God, not by the federal government, and we wholeheartedly believe that it is worth fighting for!”
