A Spencerport pastor is speaking out about the Supreme Court's decision. Reverend Jason McGuire is the President of New Yorker's Family Research Foundation. The organization is against same sex marriage. He says his group is disappointed that the Supreme Court failed to uphold the Defense of Marriage Act.

Rev. Jason McGuire said. “We think the definition should have been upheld to be one man and one woman. I find it hard to believe that our founding fathers viewed marriage as anything but so obviously we were hoping for that kind of a ruling, that DOMA would have been upheld.”

At the same time, Rev. McGuire says his group is thankful the court did not rule that there is a constitutional right to same sex marriage that has to be recognized in every state.
