Inhofe Statement on Overturning Defense of Marriage Act

Today, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) released the below statement following a vote to repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act and codify federal protections for same-sex marriage:

“My position on marriage is clear and has not changed,” Inhofe said. “I believe that all individuals are made in the image of God and are worthy of dignity and respect regardless of their belief system and opinions, but we must uphold the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman. I could not vote for a bill that goes against these strongly held beliefs.”
