Texas Sen. Ted Cruz voiced his opinion on federal judges reversing voter-approved same-sex marriage bans in an interview on Monday.
Cruz called the decisions “a real danger to our liberty,” and vowed to propose legislation that allows states to make their own decisions regarding gay marriage.
“We have seen judges, and especially the Supreme Court, ignoring the law,” Cruz told WHO radio host Jan Mickelson. “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.”
He plans to introduce a constitutional amendment that would ensure “that the federal government and unelected judges cannot set aside the democratically elected legislatures’ reasonable decisions to enact and protect traditional marriage.”
Last month, Cruz reintroduced the State Marriage Defense Act, which would allow states to enforce their own definition of marriage. The bill was co-sponsored by 11 other senators, and Texas Rep. Randy Weber introduced a partner bill in the House. Nearly two dozen representatives co-sponsored the House bill.
