Contributing sentiments towards policy:

71% : Pennsylvania Republican Glenn Thompson was "thrilled to attend and celebrate" his son's wedding on Friday (22 July), his spokesperson said, despite having voted against a bill that would protect marriage equality just three days earlier.
46% : While not currently active in American law, that definition could come back into play should the Supreme Court choose to reconsider and potentially overturn the 2015 Obergefell v Hodges ruling that introduced a nationwide federal right to same-sex marriage.
44% : As the court nullified the ruling that gave a federal right to abortion, Republican-appointed associate justice Clarence Thomas wrote a concurring opinion arguing justices ought to reconsider "all of this court's substantive due process precedent," including Obergefell and a ruling that legalised contraceptives.
38% : No irony was felt by a Republican who attended his gay son's wedding days after voting against a bill that would codify same-sex marriage.
37% : Thompson was among the 157 Republicans to voted against the Respect for Marriage Act, which aims to repeal dormant Clinton-era legislation that denounces same-sex marriage.
