Senator Rob Portman, (R-Ohio ), is making the case for same-sex marriage/marriage equality as a conservative policy and a moral ideal. Mr. Portman became the first sitting GOP senator to openly embrace marriage equality. Senator Portman, a former vice presidential hopeful, finally embraced marriage equality after his son came out as a gay man. But, no matter how the senator came to this brave decision, he is now firmly on the right-side of history.
It's time for Utah's congressional delegation to follow Mr. Portman's lead and loudly proclaim support for each Utahn's right to truly equal treatment under the law, while further promoting marriage as a loving and strong institution between two adults-regardless of whom they love.
