Ind. Gov't. - Statement from Governor Pence on SMM in Indiana

The full statement:

I will always believe in the importance of traditional marriage and I will always abide by the rule of law.

While it is disappointing to many that the Supreme Court has chosen not to hear arguments on this important issue, under our system of government, people are free to disagree with court decisions but we are not free to disobey them.

Hoosiers may be assured that I and my administration will uphold the rulings of our federal courts concerning marriage in the policies and practices of our state.

As Governor of all the people of Indiana I am confident that Hoosiers will continue to demonstrate the civility for which we are known and respect the beliefs of all people in our state.

But is he going to reissue counsel Mark G. Ahearn’s June 26, 2014 memo to all executive branch agencies?
