Ron Paul on Defining Marriage

June 13, 2011

The federal government shouldn't be involved. I wouldn't support [a constitutional] amendment [to define marriage]. But let me suggest—one of the ways to solve this ongoing debate about marriage, look up in the dictionary. We know what marriage is all about. But then, get the government out of it. Why doesn't it go to the church? And why doesn't it to go to the individuals? I don't think government should give us a license to get married. It should be in the church.
