Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina has reversed course on a federal amendment which would exclude gay couples from marriage by defining the institution as between a man and a woman.

Fiorina, a candidate for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, said in a 2010 Christian Coalition candidate survey that she would support such an amendment.

“I think the Supreme Court ruling will become the law of the land and however much I may agree or disagree with it, I wouldn't support an amendment to reverse it,” she said, referring to an upcoming Supreme Court decision in a case challenging gay marriage bans in four states.

Fiorina went on to suggest that LGBT rights threaten “religious liberty.”

“I very much hope that we will come to a place now in this nation where we can support their decision and at the same time support people's right to hold religious views and protect their right to exercise those views,” she said.

During her 2010 Senate campaign, Fiorina defended California's marriage ban, Proposition 8, saying it was “not appropriate” for a judge to overrule the will of California voters who approved the measure in 2008. Proposition 8 was struck down in 2013.
