WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Conservative Representative Justin Amash has also put his thoughts out in the public square about marriage equality through social media.
Amash said on Friday that he supported a repeal of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.
In a tweet, Rep. Amash said "the real threat to traditional marriage and religious liberty is government, not gay couples who love each other and want to spend lives together."
Amash did not directly say his support was linked to support of gay marriage, but more so that he didn't believe government should be involved in anyone's marriage.
