Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) offered strong criticism of the Supreme Court following its decision to take no action regarding same-sex marriage in several states. Cruz described the decision as “judicial activism at its worst” and announced his intention to introduce a constitutional amendment to stop the government and courts from striking state marriage laws.

On Monday, the SCOTUS chose to reject petitions that challenged same-sex marriage ban reversals in Utah, Virginia, Indiana, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin. Cruz condemned the inaction of the Supreme Court, calling the move “tragic and indefensible.”

“By refusing to rule if the States can define marriage, the Supreme Court is abdicating its duty to uphold the Constitution. The fact that the Supreme Court Justices, without providing any explanation whatsoever, have permitted lower courts to strike down so many state marriage laws is astonishing,” Cruz stated in his press release.

According to Cruz, the 14th Amendment was ratified as “post Civil-War era reform” but the Supreme Court is “making the preposterous assumption that the People of the United States somehow silently redefined marriage in 1868 when they ratified the 14th Amendment.”

“Marriage is a question for the States. That is why I have introduced legislation, S. 2024, to protect the authority of state legislatures to define marriage. And that is why, when Congress returns to session, I will be introducing a constitutional amendment to prevent the federal government or the courts from attacking or striking down state marriage laws. Traditional marriage is an institution whose integrity and vitality are critical to the health of any society. We should remain faithful to our moral heritage and never hesitate to defend it.”

Senator Cruz’s criticism is echoed by groups like Liberty Counsel and the Family Research Council. Family Research Council President Tony Perkins stated on behalf of its organization that the SCOTUS avoiding making these rulings will essentially force states to legalize gay marriage. “As more and more people lose their livelihoods because they refuse to not just tolerate but celebrate same-sex marriage, Americans will see the true goal, which is for activists to use the Court to impose a redefinition of natural marriage on the entire nation,” stated Perkins.

Fellow Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) reportedly voiced a softer, albeit vague, position on same-sex marriage recently. Paul shares the same view with Cruz that marriage should defined state by state. “The bottom line is, I’m old fashioned, I’m a traditionalist. I believe in old-fashioned traditional marriage. But I don’t really think the government needs to be too involved with this, and I think that the Republican Party can have people on both sides of the issue,” said Paul. When asked if he would reconsider that view, he shrugged.
