Ohio will continue to fight for its ban on same-sex marriage, even as the courts are ruling against those kinds of prohibitions.

In a sit-down interview with Ohio Public Radio’s Karen Kasler this week, Gov. John Kasich was asked about the future of the state’s 2004 gay marriage ban, given that 30 states either do or will recognize same-sex marriage.

“I don’t know what the future holds," Kasich says. "I mean, there could be another amendment. The court could rule that what we’ve done is unconstitutional. I happen to believe in the traditional marriage, but ... I don’t want to disparage anybody or dislike anybody, I don’t. It’s just a matter of how I view it.”

Kasich would not speculate on the ballot issue to overturn the ban that LGBT advocates are pushing for 2016, saying that is too far down the road. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said this week he will continue to defend the amendment defining marriage as only between one man and one woman, which he says is both the law and something he supports.
