New York – The Republican National Committee approved a resolution reaffirming its stance against the freedom to marry for same-sex couples today.

Evan Wolfson, president and founder of Freedom to Marry, issued the following statement:

"With Republican support for the freedom to marry increasing every day -- aided by the journeys of leaders like Senators Mark Kirk and Rob Portman -- the RNC is showing itself out of touch with this resolution. A party that claims to value individual freedom, personal responsibility, family stability, and limited government should be embracing the freedom to marry, as have a growing majority of young Republicans. RNC leaders would do well to align themselves with these supporters, who represent the party’s future, instead of digging in against the right side of history."
