Description Reacting to criticism of her position against gay marriage, Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Harrisonville, told individuals at a town hall meeting they “shouldn’t feel bad” about her position.

“We’re not the ones changing the policy. Ok, so you shouldn’t feel bad at all,” Hartzler told Alex, a young gay man.

He responded, “Why shouldn’t I feel bad if there’s an amendment, if you champion an amendment prohibiting me from [getting married?]”

Hartzler responded, “Right now it has been the law of the land for a long time. Marriage is between a man and a woman. All we did in 2004 is just put that in the constitution. So we’re not changing policy at all. And, anyway, so you shouldn’t feel bad.”
