Senator Lindsey Graham issued the following statement on the outcome of Obergefell v. Hodges, citing his record as a defender of marriage but vowing to accept the Court’s decision:

I am a proud defender of traditional marriage… [but] I will respect the Court’s decision. Furthermore, given the quickly changing tide of public opinion on this issue, I do not believe that an attempt to amend the U.S. Constitution could possibly gain the support of three-fourths of the states or a supermajority in the U.S. Congress. Rather than pursuing a divisive effort that would be doomed to fail, I am committing myself to ensuring the protection of religious liberties of all Americans.
