Rick Perry: ‘It Is Fairly Clear’ Where Texas Stands On Gay Marriage

As the Supreme Court prepares to weigh in on same-sex marriage, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) said Tuesday that there’s little ambiguity on where his state lines up on the issue.

β€œIn Texas, it is fairly clear about where this state stands on that issue,” Perry said, according to the Dallas Morning News. “As recently as a constitutional amendment that passed – I believe, with 76 percent of the vote. The people of the state of Texas, myself included, believe marriage is between one man and one woman.”

Perry was referring to Proposition 2, a 2005 state constitutional amendment to define marriage as being between one man and one woman that easily earned statewide approval in Texas. A survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling in January found that 55 percent of Texas voters do not think same-sex marriage should be legal in the state.
