It's amazing how politicians can write so much without saying anything...
From Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS):

Dear Mr. Southwell:

	Thank you for contacting me about amending the Constitution to define
marriage. I appreciate hearing from fellow Kansans on this matter.

	Consistent with efforts in the previous Congress, Senator Wayne Allard
(R-CO) re-introduced S. J. Res. 1, the Marriage Protection Act. The
resolution proposes to amend the Constitution to define marriage as the
union of a man and a woman. I supported the amendment in the past and am
an original cosponsor of S. J. Res. 1 because I believe it is wrong for a
select minority to impose their definition of marriage on the nation. S.
J. Res. 1 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee where it
awaits further action.

	It is important to remember that, while not impossible, amending the
Constitution was intentionally made a difficult process by our Founding
Fathers. The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) remains federal law (Public
Law 104-99). The Act defines marriage as the legal union between one man
and one woman as husband and wife and a spouse as a person of the opposite
sex who is a husband or a wife.

	Kansas adheres to a longstanding policy that does not recognize same sex
marriages. Legislation proposing an amendment to the state constitution
defining marriage as between a man and a woman passed the Kansas
Legislature and will be placed on the April 2005 ballot for Kansas voters
to ultimately determine. I continue to support efforts that preserve the
institution of marriage as a cornerstone of our society.

	With every best wish,


						Pat Roberts
