Do you support a Constitutional Ammendment to define marriage as between a man and woman? Why or why not?

Written by 

Taylor: My position is, and has always been, that marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman.

I have been proud to cosponsor and cast my vote in strong support of several pieces of legislation that seek to define marriage as only between one man and one woman – including an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I will continue to fight for the protection of the American family from activist federal judges seeking to impose their own radical personal beliefs on the American people.

Resopnse to opponent’s position:
Again, if my opponent truly believes in the sanctity of marriage, why is he willing to let his campaign be bankrolled by extremely liberal Members of Congress who have fought time and again against family values? Last year, he said that he sent away the national party Democrats because “they didn’t represent mountain values.” Why is my opponent now eager to take their money, and proudly stand with the very liberals fighting against WNC families and the institution of marriage?

Shuler: I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. Marriage laws have always been left up to the states, and I believe we are seeing states handle this question well now. I take amending the Constitution very seriously. If in the future there was a need for an amendment, I would read it very carefully and do what I thought was necessary to protect marriage and the Constitution.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
