FRC Responds to Treasury, IRS Announcements on Homosexual Marriage Benefits

WASHINGTON, Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Family Research Council rejected today's Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service announcements regarding the way the two government departments will view homosexual marriages.


Of the announcements Chris Gacek, J.D., Ph.D., senior fellow for regulatory policy at the FRC, made the following comments:

"State family policies have been undermined today by the Obama administration. The federal government should not, as Kennedy stated in his opinion for the majority in U.S. v. Windsor, 'put a thumb on the scales and influence a state's decision as to how to shape its own marriage laws.' We disagree with this interpretation of Windsor and are displeased to see the Obama administration's lack of respect for state marriage laws."
