Republican Illinois Congresswoman Equates Gay Marriage With Bigamy And Polygamy
Congresswoman Judy Biggert explained why she won’t back marriage equality after a debate with her opponent, former Democratic Congressman Bill Foster.
At a press conference after a debate Wednesday night, Biggert explained that she’s “close” to supporting same-sex marriage rights, but is “not there yet.” Then she said the issue is best left to the states, equating same-sex marriage laws with the universally-accepted illegal acts of bigamy and polygamy.
“It is a state issue,” Biggert said. “We don’t have polygamy and bigamy and all of these things in the federal government. It’s the states that take care of that.”Click here for reuse options!
