OK House Resolution Supports Straight Marriage

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla_ Members of the Oklahoma House of Representatives are sending a strong message about gay marriage to the US Supreme Court.

The lawmakers approved a resolution re-affirming marriage as between a man and a woman and supporting the Federal Defense of Marriage Act. It prohibits recognition of same-sex marriages.

The House resolution carries no weight of law. It passed without any negative votes, but more than half of the chamber's 29 democrats walked out instead of voting. One member is openly gay.

You may remember, the US Supreme Court is currently reviewing two gay marriage cases.
