If GOP Presidential Frontrunner Scott Walker Becomes President, He Wants To Ban Gay Marriage With Constitutional Amendment

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is making waves in his new interview with ABC News’ “This Week,” saying that if the Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage nationwide, the “next approach” should be a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

“I personally believe that marriage is between one man and one woman,” said Walker who is leading several of the GOP 2016 presidential polls currently. “If the court decides that, the only next approach is for those who are supporters of marriage being defined as between one man and one woman is ultimately to consider pursuing a constitutional amendment.”

When asked whether that meant he “would favor a constitutional amendment that would say states are allowed to ban same sex marriage,” Walker replied: “I believe that the decision on defining marriage should be left up to the states, yeah.”

The statement is consistent with his recent comments. Walker, in an example of his usual political balancing act, in April announced he would attend a same-sex couple’s reception, but didn’t weigh in on a hypothetical wedding invitation. And he has called for a constitutional amendment allowing states to ban same-sex marriage, most recently also in April.
