It took long enough, Rand Paul reveals: 'I Am In Favor of Traditional Marriage'

Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio says "A majority of Americans share a common faith that government and over regulation will cease to be a burden to our prosperity and Senator Paul has championed that cause. But the debate over federal protection of marriage began many long years ago and its a policy that requires most serious national candidates to embrace without hesitation.Let's hope Senator Paul now co-sponsors the federal bill to allow democratic referendums to protect traditional marriage in the United States of America."

"I am in favor of traditional marriage, and I think that's been the foundation for civilization for thousands of years," he said in response to a question about whether he would support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution protecting marriage.

But while he said he favored the "concept," he added he would oppose a federal amendment, because he does not believe the federal government should have a role in defining marriage. "I'd rather see it be a local issue, not a federal issue," he said, acknowledging his views "may not please everybody."

Paul had previously said that marriage was not a defining Republican issue, and members of the party could "agree to disagree" on the matter.
