Former Texas Governor Rick Perry released a response to the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage, criticizing the Court for “rewriting the 10th Amendment” which should have allowed states to decide the issue individually:

I am disappointed the Supreme Court today chose to change the centuries old definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. I’m a firm believer in traditional marriage, and I also believe the 10th Amendment leaves it to each state to decide this issue. I fundamentally disagree with the court rewriting the law and assaulting the 10th Amendment. Our founding fathers did not intend for the judicial branch to legislate from the bench, and as president, I would appoint strict Constitutional conservatives who will apply the law as written.
