Defending the family

Mathew Staver

Mathew Staver, founder and chair the Liberty Counsel, has fought for marriage and the Defense of Marriage Act in nearly 50 state and local courts and is currently engaged in protecting the DOMA in Massachusetts.

The EDGE New England Editor quotes him as saying; "The federal Defense of Marriage Act preserves state sovereignty and prevents one state from rewriting the definition of marriage for every other state, DOMA was passed overwhelmingly by a bipartisan Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton. It is an extreme position to advocate the repeal of DOMA."

Public Advocate would like to award Mathew Staver our much sought after Family Advocate Award in recognition for his services in the defense of the American family and culture.
