I Don’t Want to See John Cornyn Get Cussed at ….

 … but I wish the GOP presidential nominee had sent a statement like this to my inbox: 

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, made the following statement Thursday regarding the decision by the California Supreme Court to allow same-sex marriages:

“This decision by activist judges in California has the potential to adversely affect the institution of marriage across the United States. The ruling is another unfortunate example of judges usurping decision-making power from voters and their elected representatives. 

“The court’s action strengthens the argument for a Constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage. At the time of the Massachusetts decision, many people said a federal amendment was not necessary because only one state was affected. Since then, many questions have arisen about how these same-sex ‘marriages’ would be treated under the full faith and credit clause of the Constitution in other states, and whether they would also be required to recognize their validity.

“No state should be forced to recognize the same sex marriage of another state. Congress has the power to respond by advancing a Constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage, which is the best arrangement for children and the good of society.”
