Scott Walker Openly Constitutional Ban On Marriage Equality

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker

Now here’s a winning formula to become the next president of the United States: oppose an idea that currently enjoys the support of 60% of Americans.

GOP presidential hopeful Scott Walker said this today about marriage equality – considered settled law by the U.S. Supreme Court:

“Our conservative values were handed a big blow with the recent Supreme Court ruling. Let me be very clear: this decision was a grave mistake. Five unelected judges took it upon themselves to take that responsibility away from the states and redefine the institution of marriage.

“In 2006, I voted to amend my state constitution to protect the institution of marriage because I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. I believe that the states have the right to define marriage.

“To protect this right, I support an amendment to the United States Constitution to reaffirm the ability of the states to continue to define marriage.”
