    (WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), current member and former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit ruled today that Utah’s same-sex marriage law is unconstitutional:

    “Although I oppose discrimination based on sexual orientation, I have always believed that marriage is a sacred union between one man and one woman. In my view, the U.S. Constitution does not dictate a particular definition of marriage, so I believe such judgments are properly left to the citizens of each State. Although I am not surprised by today’s decision, I disagree with the court’s reasoning and hope the Supreme Court ultimately adheres to the original understanding of the Constitution and allows each State to define marriage for itself.”
