On Saturday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz said that he believes the U.S. Supreme Court was “clearly wrong” when it legalized same-sex marriage in 2015.
In Obergefell v. Hodges, The Court chose to legalize gay marriage in a 5 to 4 ruling in June 2015. The Supreme Court decision made it illegal for any state, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories to deny a marriage certificate to same-sex couples.
Much like the Dobbs decision, the ruling cited the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.
In a recent episode of his Verdict+ podcast, Cruz discussed the “vulnerability” of the Obergefell ruling.
