Cruz: Court Rulings On Gay Marriage Threaten Our Liberties

On a radio interview Monday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) discussed court rulings upholding marriage equality by saying they are, "a real danger to our liberty."

Cruz says that he intends to introduce a constitutional amendment that would allow states the right to ban same-sex marriage. He continued by saying, "We have seen judges, and especially the Supreme Court, ignoring the law. If the courts were following the Constitution, we shouldn’t need a new amendment, but they are, as you put it quite rightly, 'making it up' right now and it’s a real danger to our liberty."

Regarding his proposed amendment, Cruz states that it would ensure "that the federal government and un-elected judges cannot set aside the democratically elected legislatures' reasonable decisions to enact and protect traditional marriage." The Supreme Court plans to hear cases involving same-sex marriage and the states. It is expected to announce its findings on the cases by June.
