Cruz: Ignore Supreme Court On Gay Marriage
How someone who wants to be president can urge that a court order be ignored is beyond me.
Cruz (R-TX) told NPR that states should ignore the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling.
Said Cruz: “Those who are not parties to the suit are not bound by it… The parties to a case cannot ignore a direct judicial order, but it does not mean that those who are not parties to a case are bound by a judicial order.”
He continued: “These judges and justices are disregarding their oaths.”
Describing his reaction to the Supreme Court decisions of last week: “It is not healthy for our democracy when judges on our Supreme Court are violating their judicial oath. And in both the Obamacare decision and the marriage decision, the justices decided that they wanted to re-write federal law and re-write the constitution. That’s not the way our Constitution operates, and, and it is a sad moment for the court when you have judges seizing authority that does not belong to them.”
