A day after his administration sued to stop a Montgomery County official from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Gov. Tom Corbett said the matter is one of law.
"What I'm looking at right now is the rule of law," Mr. Corbett said on his way into an event in Harrisburg. "The law is clear in Pennsylvania, that marriage is between a man and a woman. And that law was determined by the duly elected representatives of the people of Pennsylvania.
"They have not changed it, nor have the courts of Pennsylvania changed it. That's where the discussion is right now."
He affirmed that he believes the law should remain as it is.
"My belief, my upbringing -- marriage is between a man and a woman," he said.
