Republican Presidential candidates denounce Scotus Same-Sex decision
 

GOP-SAME-SEXToday, after the U.S. Supreme Court decided in favor of same sex marriage, GOP presidential candidates, all competing for the religious right vote, released statements. 

Here is a list of comments that Bayoubuzz has received from the Democratic National Committee on the courts decision.  Below are two statements we received from the Jindal and the Santorum campaigns:

Today is a monumental step toward equality. Same-sex marriage will now be legal all across the nation. Love is love, and it’s now the law.

But some Republicans want to continue this fight. WATCH here for what they have said they would do.

And here is what Republican candidates had to say this morning since the Court’s decision:

Bush: “I believe in traditional marriage.”

Walker: “The only alternative left is to support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to reaffirm the ability of the states to continue to define marriage.” 

Rubio: “I believe that marriage…should be between one man and one woman.”


Perry: “I’m a firm believer in traditional marriage… I fundamentally disagree with the court rewriting the law and assaulting the 10th Amendment.” 

Jindal: “Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God, and no earthly court can alter that.”

Fiorina: “I do not agree that the Court can or should redefine marriage.”

Huckabee: “The only outcome worse than this flawed, failed decision would be for the President and Congress…to surrender in the face of this out-of-control act of unconstitutional, judicial tyranny.”

BOBBY JINDAL

the U.S. The Supreme Court decision today conveniently and not surprisingly follows public opinion polls. It tramples on rights that were once protected by the 10th Amendment of the Constitution.

Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God, and no earthly court can alter that.

This decision will pave the way for an all-out assault against the religious freedom rights of Christians who disagree with this decision. This ruling must not be used as pretext by Washington to erode our right to religious liberty.

The government should not force those who have sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage to participate in these ceremonies.

I will never stop fighting for religious liberty. Will you join me?

SANTORUM

Republican presidential candidate and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to redefine the institution of marriage.

Rick Santorum said: "Today, five unelected justices decided to redefine the foundational unit that binds together our society without public debate or input.  Now is the people's opportunity respond because the future of the institution of marriage is too important to not have a public debate.  The Court is one of three co-equal branches of government and, just as they have in cases from Dred Scott to Plessy, the Court has an imperfect track record.  The stakes are too high and the issue too important to simply cede the will of the people to five unaccountable justices."

"But leaders don't accept bad decisions that they believe harm the country, they have the courage of their convictions and lead the country down the better path. Marriage, the family and our children are too central to a healthy society to not fight for what is best. I realized that fact early on and that is why I lead the charge against some in my own party in 2004 to ensure the Federal Marriage Amendment received a vote and I continue to stand for marriage, for families, for freedom," continued Santorum.

"As President, I will be committed to using the bully pulpit of the White House to lead a national discussion on the importance to our economy and our culture of mothers and fathers entering into healthy marriages so that every child is given their birthright- to be raised by their mother and father in a stable, loving home.  I will stand for the preservation of religious liberty and conscience, to believe what you are called to believe free from persecution.  And I will ensure that the people will have a voice in decisions that impact the rock upon which our civilization is built," Santorum concluded. 

Thanks,

Bobby
