Marriage Act: On Monday, the senior senator for the state of Oregon spoke in favor of the Respect for Marriage Act and urged it to be passed.
Wyden Calls on the Senate to Pass the Respect for Marriage Act

He was quoted as saying, “Passage of the Respect for Marriage Act will not put an end to violent speech and acts of hate for good.” However, with this vote, the Senate has the opportunity — and the obligation – to make it clear that hatred is never acceptable.
That we will not back down from standing up for those in need of protection. That we will safeguard the individual rights of every American against a majority on the Supreme Court that is committed to rolling back the clock by decades.”
Everyone deserves the right to marry who they love. I was one of the first U.S. Senators to support same-sex marriage, and today, I couldn’t be more proud to cast my vote for marriage equality. https://t.co/wjFQxXAb8l
