Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Saturday that he believes the historic 2015 ruling by the Supreme Court that made same-sex marriage was legal across the country was “clearly wrong.”

You can always count on Ted to hate on LGBTQ folks.

From Newsweek:

In a video uploaded to YouTube from his Verdict+ podcast, Cruz discussed what was described as the “vulnerability” of the Obergefell ruling.

He argued that the ruling was not correctly decided, making a similar argument to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in his concurring opinion when the top judicial body formally overturned Roe v. Wade.

Obergefell v. Hodges, a landmark LGBTQ rights case, was decided in a 5 to 4 ruling in June 2015.

The Supreme Court decision made it illegal for any state, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories to deny a marriage certificate to same-sex couples, citing the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.

“Obergefell, like Roe v. Wade, ignored two centuries of our nation’s history,” the senator argued in the clip from his podcast. “Marriage was always an issue that was left to the states.”
