Jun 26, 2015
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) released the following statement in response to today’s Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage:

"In light of today’s ruling by the Supreme Court to legalize same-sex marriage, we must remember to treat each other with kindness and love.”

“I personally believe that marriage is best defined between one man and one woman and I wish that the courts would have deferred to the states on this divisive issue. Moving forward, we must now work to protect the rights guaranteed in the First Amendment respecting the establishment of religion and allowing the free exercise thereof."
