Rubio Says Gay Marriage Ruling Is Not ‘Settled Law’

The Supreme Court’s ruling earlier this year that legalized gay marriage is not necessarily the last word on the issue, according to Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio.

The Hill reported that the Florida senator argued Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the decision could be reversed with a pro-lifer in the White House.

“It is the current law. I don’t believe any case law is settled law,” Rubio said. “Any future Supreme Court can change it. And ultimately, I will appoint Supreme Court justices that will interpret the Constitution as originally constructed.” Calling the ruling “bad law,” he added: “I don’t think the current Constitution gives the federal government the power to regulate marriage. That belongs at the state and local level.”

Rubio accused the justices of finding “this hidden constitutional right that 200 years of jurisprudence had not discovered.” He said the court “basically overturned the will of the voters in Florida, where over 60 percent passed a constitutional amendment that defined marriage in the state constitution as the union of one man and one woman.”

The candidate admitted that passing a constitutional amendment banning same-sex unions is unlikely. “As I’ve said, that would be conceding that the current Constitution is somehow wrong and needs to be fixed,” he explained.

The Supreme Court voted 5-4 to repeal state laws in Florida and elsewhere that outlawed same-sex unions.
