Congressman Ron Kind Declares Support for “Same-sex Marriage”

The Chippewa Herald  reported that Wisconsin Congressman Ron Kind has declared his support for “gay marriage rights”.  Announcement of the Congressman’s position was revealed on his facebook page , stating:

 “ My 18-year marriage to Tawni has taught me that we’re both stronger because we love and support each other. I support marriage equality because if two people want to make a lifetime commitment to love and care for one another, then the government shouldn't stand in the way. 

As the Supreme Court deliberates the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8, I’m reminded that throughout history, discrimination has never worked. I have never voted for discrimination, and I look forward to supporting legislation like the Respect for Marriage Act that will help committed same-sex couples gain the same rights as everyone else.
