Brownback Sees Gay Marriage As Settled Issue In Kansas

Government anti gay

AP – Gov. Sam Brownback still supports a federal law against gay marriage that he backed as a member of Congress and says the issue is settled in Kansas because of the state constitution’s ban.

Brownback faced questions Thursday from reporters with two cases on gay marriage before the U.S. Supreme Court. Brownback has long supported the traditional definition of marriage.

In one case, the high court is being asked to strike down a gay-marriage ban in California enacted by voters. The other case is a challenge to the federal Defense of Marriage Act of 1996.

Brownback voted for the federal law while in Congress.

He said the issue is resolved in Kansas because in a 2005 election, nearly 70 percent of voters approved a state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

    The ‘traditional’ definition? How far back does “traditional” go? Back to when is was illegal for blacks to marry whites? There are some backwards people in this state.

    I can’t believe how judgemental the things in this issue are. This isn’t the 1800s oh wait this is Kansas. I am ashamed of anyone who agrees with this.

    Funny… you just said that you wanted Keisel out because he wasn’t a good DE and wasn’t collapsing the pocket… but then said that the other guys played worse. I agree McClendon is easily the best prospect on the D-line and I have no idea why he didn’t start at NT last year. Keisel brought pressure and collapsed the pocket, but had no help on the line.
